You should need between 7.5 and 8.5 quarts of oil. If you are doing your own maintenance on your Jaguar, it is always a smart idea to go to your local auto parts retailer and pick up a Haynes repair manual. For the average home mechanic, this will have any and all information that you could possibly need, including a complete chart of measures for your car. They only cost around $20 and are an incredible tool for most minor repairs.

Blown oil pump 3 cyclinders not firing what else can i I expect in repairing engine

If the oil pump does not work, the entire engine will lock up and be totally useless. You will need to do a complete rebuild of the engine, including main bearings and rod bearings. Sometimes it is easier to buy a rebuilt engine, in the area of $1800.00. Rebuilding will cost 800.00 plus 15 hours lablr.

There's a knock on start up, and when I checked the oil none registered on the dip stick, no visible leaks and no oil stains anywhere. I only just gave it an oil change. There was no oil light warning at...

no oil on dipstick is a very BAD THING make sure you have oil in the motor before you do anything else!!! or else it can cost you a motor if you did your own oil change,,, did you put oilpan plug back in? did you tighten the oil filter? did you put 5qts oil back into motor? there SHOULD BE A READING ON THE DIPSTICK. new oil looks almost transparent on the dipstick. try rubbing your finger on the dipstick to check for oil presence. look real close at the dipstick before you start your motor!!! if you added 5qts oil it went somewhere,are you sure it went into the motor? if no oil in motor there will be loud knocking from the motor. hope this helped you save your motor!!!!!

The oil gauge is reading 0 psi. and the oil is like 5qts. over full.. i just baught it for 600.. can i save the engine

Change the oil sending unit, might be bad, and better drain some of the oil out till it reads full on dip stick, way too much, in fact drain some out first, then if it still reads zero, get a new oil sending unit.
