SOURCE: used jaguar

hi, i wouldnt worry to much as they are built to a realy high quality and they do last well. They can be expensive to repair if anything does go wrong but this only tends to happen if the car has been raced around alot.
The engines on these will last ages you should find you will never have any problems just keep it serviced regular and use the best oil you can as this will prolong the life of the engine.

Dont worry to much as these cars will run and run and have very few problems the key is to look after it and get it serviced regular.

You made a good choice buying the car so dont worry as they very often have problems just look after it but with a car like that im sure you will.
Check service history and the last time it had full service if this wasnt recent then get it done as soon as you can use only the best oil and youll never have no problems.

Hope you enjoy your car and the best thing is they dont tend to lose money so as a resale point of view you have made a good choice.
If you have any questions just give me a shout back as i have been a mechanic for the last 11 years and have never done any major work on your make of car the only work i have done is service and valet so good luck and happy driving.

SOURCE: replace cabin pollen filter 2005 jaguar xkr

To get to the cabin air filter on an XK8 or XKR, you have to do the following steps (I know these steps sound ridiculous...as in many cars there is just a simple cover in the engine compartment... but...): The air filter is under the black plastic cowl or plenum that is just under the windshield wiper blade connectors. To get to that, you must 1. carefully lift off the plastic covers that reveal screw heads. Remove the screws. 2. lift off the plastic covers that are on the top of each windshield wiper connector - under the cover you will then see a nut or bolt that has to be unscrewed. 3. Using a small puller (the puller that lifts off battery terminals works for this) lift off each windshield wiper and disconnect the rubber hose from each. 3. lift the car's front hood, and remove the plastic cowling (you also have to lift the side rubber runners and a rubber strap from each side that holds up the rubber drain hoses). Once you remove that plastic cowling, you will see the air filter plenum at the back of the engine area. The air filter should come vertically out of that. (This air filter does not exist on my 2000 and earlier editions...I am not sure what year Jaguar installed them.) Full instructions are on the Jaguar JTIS CD which you should obtain...look online for that.

1999 jaguar xj8 with abs light on and stability control fail message, what is the problem with this? thanks.


abs modules work very hard. by the age of your car it seems that the abs module is packing up. the abs system has sensors on all four wheels that figures out braking, stability and control of the car when cornering. these do brake down over time and is part of the wear and tear side of things. you don't need to buy a new one. they do overhaul these things for much cheaper. your car magazines should advertize the fixing of these things or contact a scrapyard for a secondahand one. check if the abs sensors are not faulty and replace them. do not go to the agents, they will rip you off. good luck

Check System Light ON


this message is displayed to let you know that the catalyst is not performing to standards as outlined by manufacturer. this can be caused by the precious metals in the catalytic converter breaking down due to a possible lean condition or overfueling. this can also be caused by normal wear and tear too. hope this info helps!!
