1989 jaguar xj6 new engine or new cylinder???

I have a 1989 xj6 a mechanic told me that 2 of the cylinders was bad. When I drive the car 4 about 20 mins the cockpit of the car becomes very hot its like a sauna in there heat from the engine is blowing through the vents. Now a mechanic told me that it would be cheaper and better 4 me to replace the engine then replaciing the cylinders becausei will need to replace all 6 cylinders 4 the car to run properly. My car has 220.000 miles on the engine. I found a 1994 jaguar engine wit 66,000 miles on it sound unbelievable to me too. The price is 4 the engine is 635.00. And labor to put the engine in car 2,000. Do I really need a new engine or just 2 new cylinder? Please help.

At that price replace the engine. Make sure though that you get a warranty for the engine that includes the cost of installation if the new one fails. Most shops will warranty for 90 days which is long enough to find out if there is going to be a problem.

The technician is correct. you will need to replace this damaged engine. When the cylinder walls are damaged or eroded, as in this case, it is standard practice to replace the entire block and head.

I HAVE A 1996 JAGUAR XJ6 i AM SHOWING A MISSFIRING IN MY 6 CYLINDER. i JUST REPLACED THE VALVE COVER GASKET. MY IGNITION COILS HAVE NEVER BEEN REPLACED. COULD THE SIX CYLINDER MISSFIRE HAVE SOMETHING TO DO...


Yes, definitely. I just had the same problem on my 97 xj6... car was misfiring, running very rough at idle. My last ignition coil was bad. I had it replaced and solved the problem. Try it yourself first. The repair shop wanted almost $400 to get a new coil and replace it for me. I found a coil at familycar.com for $57. I pulled one coil out and the boot was slightly melted at the end. Be very careful taking them out as nothing is cheap on our vehicles... Good luck!

I would replace the O2 sensor on general principles and have a look at the screen sensor for the air flow sensing unit just ahead and slightly right of the coolant tank and behind and in line of the air filter housing. That little screen and its readings along with the O2 sensor and various other sensors can really mess up the idle and fuel consumption. The little sensor screen can be washed and cleaned of **** with alcohol and it will work as new. the O2 sensor needs a lot more persuasion

How do i change the stem rod seals on jaguar xj6


If I understand correctly your question, do you mean valve seals? According to my knowledge, it is a major operation, pulling out the cylinder head and changing them all together. Another way is to fill the cylinder with pressurized air trough the ignition plug hole, in order not to drop the valves into the cylinder and change them one by one. Both of the procedures require quite advanced mechanical skills and should be done by an experienced mechanic familiar with Jaguars.
