Steering is very stiff in my 2004 jaguar xjr

You may have a fluid leak. The pipes are prone to leaking on that vehicle. The power steering top up reservoir is under the hood. Refer to reservoir caps for indication or owners manual.

97 Jaguar XK8 has no power steering. I am considering buying. The lot owner has assumed it's the P/S pump. I work on heavy equipment and would like to do the work my self. Can you provide removal...

There are only two bolts that hold the power steering pump one is the main bracket and the other is the adjustment and by the way youll have to remove the 2 belt in front if any are there. 1 remove the belts. 2 reove the power steering hose.3. take bolts out the attatchiment to block bolt out. 4 take out the adustment bolt. remove the pump. install in the reverse order, By the way power steering on jaguar has what they call morning sickness that when it stiff then unstiff as it is driven if the steering is not being assisted then you are going to have replace rack n pinion. In my opinion with jaguar,your rack n pinion is faulty.let me no there is a way to test the pump. Heres how turn the wheel and remove some fluid when the pump is low does it churn and foam the fluid? If yes do the rack n pinion. leave the pump alone

Are xj6 power steering because i am looking to buy one but went on a test drive the streeing was very very stiff far more stiffer that normal are xj6 power steering

Yes, they come standard with power steering. There was most likely a problem with the power steering pump on the one you test drove. The power steering fluid could be low or dirty. Also, the pump could be worn out which would make the steering a bit stiff as you found. I would ask the seller about it and also check the fluid level, if low or dirty then request it to be changed and then test it. Hope this helps!

Power steering fluid

I would use just power steering fluid. ATF can be used but has a tendincy to "clean out" and sometimes cleans out seals, causing it to leak.
