i have a XJ6 4.0lt and i use the cheapest diesel/petrol engine oil i can buy ,has to be a diesel (turbo) /petrol oil so it cleans the inside of the engine ,20/50 is good enough or 10/40 and then i change the oil every 5000 miles regardless of time interval as i only use this vehicle for a sunday drive or to a classic reunion ,You do not need expensive oil you would be surprissed what they use in a garage and and what you pay for it .synthetic or natural is ok and its ok to mix them ,change the oil filter every third oil change .Cannot afford to drive this car all the time as petrol is now costing 1.59 euros a LITRE work that out into dollars
That would indicate either a faulty oil pressure sensor or that the oil pressure is low. This would be caused by a faulty oil pump, partially blocked oil lines or lack of oil. Check and re-check oil levels whilst the vehicle is on a flat piece of road. Check you have the right oil dipstick for the car (it may have been replaced with a longer oil dipstick which would give you a false reading) or even that the engine may have been changed at some time! make sure you have used oil of the right viscosity (check the owners manual). If that doesn't fix it then give the engine a good flush out with flushing oil to clean out the oil feed system. refill with fresh oil. If that doesn't sort it, change the oil pressure sensor. (on the engine block). Get the engine diagnostics readout done to see if there are any error codes stored. If you still have problems then it may be the oil pump which will cost a lot of money to change!
Nothing special, it is a motor just like every other car, just costs more to maintain. Most people don't touch them, some are sealed so nobody does touch them. You can use any oil in there, 10-w 40, should do. I think the manual calls for 5-w 30, but that is on the thin side, depends on where you live. Or how hot it gets outside! Florida is hot!! 7 qts to change. Hope this helps.
labor rate is the biggest factor, if you live around San Francsico area the labor rate is $185.00 per hour to fix that. I know the engine would need to come out, so its possible to have a $2,000.00 labor cost.
DO NOT pour transmission fluid into this transmission. This is a sealed transmission and should ONLY be serviced by a qualified Jaguar Specialist. It uses VERY specific and expensive transmission fluid, and if the wrong fluid is used, it will fail shortly. This will end up costing thousands of dollars. If you want to have a local Transmission Service Center do the work, be sure to confirm they know how to deal with the Jaguar. I know, because I own a 1999 XJR and have already looked into this. I've heard quotes for changing the fluid range from $300 - $800. A bit ridiculous if you ask me, but a mistake will cost dearly. I've heard Transmissions for these run from $2000 - $6000, depending on who you ask. Jaguar will not even rebuild them, so you would need to find a qualified Jaguar Transmission Shop.
I have a 2003 taurus with the same liter engine as your jag Ford has been making this engine since 1986 the only thing to worry about check the drive belt make sure transmission fluid has been changed and had all current oil changes and tune ups and also if I had found this deal before you did I would have a Jag :-)
