Question about Jaguar Cars & Trucks
I have a 2001 Jaguar s type V8 4.0. Replaced coil packs, spark plugs, and fuel filter. Still feel like a bad miss. Press on gas and won't accelerate. Its smoking and left tail pipe is spitting water and rust. Anyone herd of these kinds of problems. Just bought it after sitting for a year. It has 98k miles. Thanks
You have bought a pig in a poke here my friend and unless you a good weekend mechanic then dump this car ,in the UK if you paid more than 1000pounds then they saw you coming ,look on the autotrader website ,500/1000pounds tops for this car ,nice car YES but old and clapped out like this one then its worthless except for spares ,you will need to strip the heads off and if your luck just gaskets but if vehicle was used with no antifreeze then the water jackets will all be opened up due to corrosion ,Best engine in these cars was the earlier straight 6 like mine in a xj6 4.0 .cALL THE SCRAPYARD

i also have the same problem regarding the oil leak. this is due to the spark plug gasket leaking and you will need to replace them. they are circular gaskets about 1.5 inches across that fit to the underside of the rocker covers and prevent oil from seeping down the long spark plug hole. when i investigated my leak i assumed it was just the rocker cover gasket that was leaking but once everything was removed it is obvious.
