The problem in my Jag was the hydraulic cylenders that raise the top. The seals in the cyl's leak by, and there isn't enough pressure to lift the top. No external fluid leaks, just internal to the cyl's. I had estimates from 2 shops to replace the units. $1,500 at both shops. I purchased the cylenders for $750 and replaced the myself. Required refilling the tank on the pump in the trunk, passenger sideb behind carpeted panel. Works like new again.
Good luck.

Hit pothole real bad no damage to car checked all fuses battery it's self has spark but car is unresponsive when I try to turn it on what do I do now jaguar xk8 convertible 1998


In the 1999 Jaguar xj8 there is a fuel cutoff switch on the passenger side right hand panel to the right of the feet. Reach over the top rear of the small panel and find a soft flexible membrane on the top of the switch and press it until it clicks.if that doesnt work,there is a fuel pump relay in the trunk fusebox that might be the problem. 1998 Jaguar XK8 fuel safety shutoff Bing images

My convertible top will not close lock and slow to come up


This is a VERY common problem with these xk convertibles. The most common is the fluid thickens up and the motor has trouble moving the top up and down. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Jaguar has updated fluid for this flush but it cost like 90 buck a quart, luckily you only need one but its pretty labor intensive. If your look at a dealership to perform this repair is pretty expensive.
