1997 xj6 jagaur front end seems to give into turns , slight fish tail affect. Can sway bares help?

Sway bars can always help for yaw and body roll. If the shocks/dampners have not been changed though, sounds like time. Very nice cars. Let me know if you need anything else.

Instructions to replace a warter on a 1990 jaguar xj6

very easy to do but you have to remove the radiator first ,dont think you need to remove the AC rad though as because its a 1990 it still used R12 gas so its only a small rad for this model ,removal of the radiator is simple enough just remove the torq headed screws that hold the long metal plate over the top of the rad and the rad then just lifts out ,usual pipes and oil cooler pipes on rad then the belts .now the trick here is to remove the front grills so that you can use long extensions for the sockets to undo the water pump ,get a quinton hazal replacement from auto factor as original jag pieces are very expensive ,last one i changed was about 90euros trade price to me but what you will pay??

Where is the fuel pump on the jaguar xj6 4.0 lit 1996

Hello: They are not always in the tank. At the left rear wheel, mounted above the inner frame, you can see it when the rear right wheel is removed and the car is jacked up. It may be easier to see it if you follow from the fuel filter which would be on the frame and just about under where your feet would be if you were sitting behind the driver.

I have a 1990 xj6 jaguar. Two problems I am

Had a similar problem within the last year. Either your fuel pump is failing or your fuel filter is partially blocked. Change both and drive away.

1990 Jaguar XJ40 3.6, where is the fuel filter located?

The fuel filter is located under the car, in front and in a little, from the L/H rear wheel.

Undo the 2 nut connections, and fixing clamp, and its off.

Remember no smoking !

Good luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice... Thanks !

Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag

No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.
