Question about Cars & Trucks
This car is in great condition, no dents no scratches it looks brand new, it's well taken care of, I'm thinking about purchasing it. what should I look for, if you could help me out that would be great if you want to email me that would be great
">firstly do not pay more than a 1000 GB pounds for it because thats all its worth in the UK ,these cars are great but?? their petrol gobblers unless its a diesel and when they go wrong they cost a packet to repair when in reality their easy to repair its just the name like a merc or BMW the garages always try to bleed the golden sacred cow ,i have a XJ6 1994 and i had it given to me because the garage wanted too much to repair it ,i fixed it in a short while with bit from the scrappers and i now have a donor car in the garden and since i have had the donor car it hasnt gone wrong at all .The XJ6 is mine not the E type by the way,also consider joining a jaguar owners club look on www,jec.org.uk for your region or country

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.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.
