Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6
I have a 1995 Jag XJ12 and i just got major works done on this car.
About 2 months ago the car got overheated and the coolant reservoir blew up and i took it to a jaguar specialist and they replaced everything that my jag needed (new coolant expansion tank, new timing belt, new chain tensioner, new thermostat, new hoses, minor tune up, etc)
The jag drives smooth and always starts and never overheats since it's repaired (over a month) but this morning i started the car and when i started driving, the check engine light came on and it stayed on..i didn't notice anything wrong with the car..engine is quiet, it's not overheating, transmission is smooth, so what could be the problem? i'm kind of traumatic from the last experience because i don't want to wait til something major happens (knock on wood) to this car and i end up with high cost of repair..is this something that i should ignore? i took it to a jaguar dealer and they said if its not flashing then i don't have to worry and told me to check the gas cap to see if its loose or not because sometimes it would send a signal to the computer thus the check engine light comes on..the dealer can check it but it will cost me almost 300 bucks?!? holy **** just to check the light? any help would be appreciated..thank you so much for reading and god bless!
I recently, April 12, purchased a 95 XJ12 that looks like it has minor problems. Its overheating. The Jag has been sitting for 2 years in a garage. It did not have a current title or local state plates, so it was sitting in the garage.
Anyway, I am restoring it. The prev owner gave me a Jag XJ12 DVD with all the manuals and diagrams. However, it did not have the diagrams I needed for the relays. So, I started to look for manuals. Nothing exists aside from the Jaguar OEM DVD and more expensive dealer paper manuals.
Unfortunetly, the 95 XJ12 has the OBD-1 system on it. I am in the process of finding a OBD-1 for the 95 XJ12. So far, none, but am calling OBD scanner companies.
The site below cost $17 one year and $50 5 years but it has all of the diagrams for all the relays, etc, repair instructions, ...
I purchased $50 plan since I plan to keep the JAG. I think its going to be a classic.
I would like to keep in touch with you to share info on self-repair tips.
If you want to share the cost for the site above email me.
