Question about Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

My xj8 Jaguar, sits low on cold mornings, then once started it will raise itself at which point at times you hear a poping sound under the hood (like a balloon exploding) once the car warms up it seem

Given the above problems, this issue comes and goes and seems to be more prevalent on cold mornings, the car will sit low with the lights on; car too low and air suspension fault light. Then as I mentioned the car drives fine once warmed up.. but I did notice that if I hear a poping sound it does go back down.. again mostly when the weather is cold..

SOURCE: 2000 Maxima GLE engine has trouble maintaining idle in cold temp

The intake plenum gasket is leaking! I have seen this many times before. If you can turn a wrench it will be an easy fix, otherwise take it in and have them replace the gasket. Oh, I almost forgot, the plastic intake manifold needs to be replaced as well. The inserts that holds the manifold in place come loose and that is the root cause of the problem.

SOURCE: Overheating and heater not work

there is a valve on the water pump and one on the thermostat housing open those up one at a time until you get a little bit of antifreeze come out then tighten them back up. All you will be doing is bleeding the air out of the cooling system. my car was doing the same thing after I changed my thermostat.

SOURCE: AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS FOR 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR CARTIER

I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.

2002 Jaguar XJ8 VDP....installed new battery (more amps than the previous), now the car just turns over and won't start


It is posible that the extra boost has blown the ignition fuse. Look under the dash on the left or right hand drivers side and find the fuse box. On the outer cover should be a diagram of the fuses installed. Look for ignition. If you don't have a daigrm then start pulling fuses one at a time and checking the wire in the fuse to see if it has seperated, (Melted), and replace it. There may be more then one fuse that burnt so check them all and replace them back in the same spot. This is why i say one at a time. Some vehicles have an ignition fuse under the hood as well. If you can't find the fuse in the car then look out under the hood. Some of these fuses under the hood will be larger but should have a window to look in and check for damage. Let me say this first before you go fuse hunting. When trying to start does it turn over good and fast. If it is a sluggish turn over then recheck the battery termanals to be sure they are tight and cleaned of all corrosion. You should not be able to twist the cable end with your hand. Let me know how it turns out. I hope I have been of some help, Good Luck, The Raz

2001 Jaguar XJ8 Idles rough while sitting


o2 sensors often cause a rough idle at stand still. Previously my xj8 had crank case ventilation (pvc valve essentially) issues that caused the check engine w/ restricted performance. I noticed a severe drop in gas mileage as well. Jaguar dealer fixed my problems in a few hours and it was surprisingly cheap. Its worth taking it to advanced or auto zone to see what the computer says. Then decide if you want to shell out for a dealer fix or if you can tackle it yourself. BTW, just to justify myself this is my third jaguar. I have a '94 xj6 with a chevy 350 inside it, previously owned a 95 XJ6 and currently have the xj8. They are wonderful cars if you can put up with their rough times.

1998 xj8 heater only works when engine at higher revs


There is an Electic Water Pump for the Heater that is located under the hood near the left fenderwell. If it's not a fuse, then likely, this pump is bad. Mine went bad in my 1999 Jaguar XJR. It runs close to $400 for the pump, so hopefully that's not the problem. Price does not include labor.

Since I'm comfortable with Electronics, I replaced the brushes in my motor and it works fine now. Heat all the time and only cost $1.00 You may be able to find a shop to rebuild the motor for you at a fraction of the cost.
