Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8

1 Answer

2001 jaguar XJ8 engine codes change what's the differences?

I bought the car with a thrown timing chain. Resulting in, you know, at least a broken piston and damaged valves. I thought... just buy a used engine ...approx year and mileage.

Well after doing some research I found Jag had some issues with timing chain tensions around 2001. Causing catastrophic failures. (...great... ) And in 2001 the engines changed.

My engine code is LL0012041647 which falls into the thru eng #010 8122359 category.

The used engines I'm seeing for sale in this category have much higher miles. The engines in the from eng #010 8130000 seem to have lower mileage.

The question is....Are these engines so different they can't be interchanged or was it more like a software change?

When should the timing chain be replaced on a 2001 XJ8?


As most timing chains, when they start to get noisy, that is usually when they start to stretch beyond there limits, refer to owners/service manual for any periodic maintenance.

Just planing to buy a XJ8 1999 brand of Jaguar and want to be sure it's a good car in terms of general maintenance and gas consumption in particular


1998 to 2001 Jaguar XJ8 have a big engine design problem, timing chain tensioners are made out of plastic, and with time they brake ,causing big Damage to Engine, if you buy the car make sure those tensioners are replaced to a next generation tensioners wich are way better(made with some metal) as per gas consuption, about 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 in the highway.

Engine cranks like no compression 2001 xj8


I would check the timing. Sounds like bent/chain failure to me. If it spins like nothing but the crank and rods/pistons are spinning, that's most often... because it is.

Intermittent Gearbox Fault


Suggest you get the TCU codes read (Jaguar dealer or well equipped auto box specialist). Suggest you don't go component changing without a believable diagnosis, could be TCU, could be pressure or speed/load sensors, lots of things, many not as expensive as a new TCU!

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.

Engine light on, noisy idling, short coolant-2001 JAG VDP


Take the car to a specialist to check the timing chain tensioners, they are a known issue. I`d advise you to not use (or even start) the car till theyve been ruled out, the engine could be made scrap if the tensioners goes.

If it does need tensioners, get the later metal type ones fitted.
