SOURCE: 95 jaguar xj6 cuts out

sounds like valves not seating,this model car suffers from burnt valves as the engine was designed pre war when they had high octane fuel and lots of lead in the fuel ,lead lubricates the exhaust valves as well as causing all other health problems.but iam sure that these engines never got a stelite coated valves and valve seats when in 92 we all went unleaded.i have reground no end of heads since word got around that i could do a jag.i can get the head off in about an hour ,they are quite simple really just dammed heavy and the head gaskets expensive about 100€ another 3/4 hours to grind valves in then refit.valve timing marks on rear of cams by the way .

SOURCE: car wont run.

Does it crank well and all that but with no spark or is the battery just dead? If the battery is dead, it either won't charge while alternator is spinning or the alternator doesn't charge well enough to keep the battery charged well. If it jumps and runs indefinitely, battery is done. If it jumps and dies, alternator is done. If battery and alternator are fine, and you have no spark, you may need a new coil, new spark plug wires if they are worn out and too resistant, pick up coil inside of distributor, or you may have some other ignition system issue.

Most times when an alternator fails, it starts charging less and less till the car won't keep running or it won't start the next time. If the alternator hasn't failed, the battery needs replacing. If your battery is 5 or more years old this is a very good possibility. If your alternator failed and you have killed your battery many times before replace them both. Each time you drain a battery to dead you lose about 10% of its current capacity.

If the battery is fine and engine will not turn, starter may need replacing. Hope I helped.

I have a 1994 jaguar xj6 that has no injector pulse but it gets fuel to fuel rail and it gets spark,so what could be going on?


Try gently moving the shifter around while cranking the engine (while in the park position). There is a sensor in the J-shift that will prevent the proper voltage from reaching the main computer if it is out of adjustment. This problem drove me nuts until I figured it out. I would start and run fine, then it was like the fuel pump went out. Good Luck (I know it's an old post but it might help someone)

Sounds like fuel pump is bad. Running fuel low puts alot of strain on electric fuel pumps. The fuel acts as a coolant for the pump, that's why it's advisable to keep at least 1/2 tank. It sounds like your pump finally just gave up. Pump might be making noise but it could just be spinning and not pumping. Have someone test your fuel pressure to confirm.

I have had a corroded rotor or badly worn contacts inside the distributor cap. Lightly sanding takes care of that and making sure the wires are all tight to plugs.
