If you do not have a clue what could be the problem it may be cheaper to have a mechanic check it out. I have seen simple repairs turn into big ones when some one that does not know gets in to do the work.

SOURCE: Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE

hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

SOURCE: Steady squeaking noise after taking foot off accelerator

sounds like you have a pad rubbing on a disk/rotor, if you jolt the brakes does the noise go away? if so it's probably a pad loose

SOURCE: Siffness with steering , squeaking noise from the front wheel.

Low on fluid in the pump, if it leaking from the steering rack then it needs replacement, If theres is a squeal then the belt is loose or the pump itself is bad. If you have a bad creaking noise then the ball joints need replacement, bad ball joints can lock up the steering but the worst it can do is drop the front of the frame to the ground and which could be very dangerous when driving..

Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

I have a 1999 Jaguar XJ8, there is a Check Engine


the gas gauge is not related, that would be a defective gas gauge sending unit in the gas tank, the check engine light indicates that one of around 200 poss faults has occured in the electronic engine controls, you will need to have the OBD 2 engine control system tested for the fualt code that is stored when the light is turned on.

XJ8L would not start


You may have a gasket leaking oil to the engine cylinders. Once you got it started the oil burned off and the engine will run fine until the next time....
Unfortunately, on this car, it a VERY expensive problem to get fixed.
If the problem occurs again, be careful not to flood the engine. Try to get it running again, and take it in for a professional estimate and repair.

Windshield wipers stop whenever and wherever they want to.


This is the park switch in the motor, try prising the top off the motor gently, it will only come off so far as wires will stop you, clean grease away from micro switch then spray with wd40.
if this fails new motor I am afraid
