Car won't start after oil change jaguar S type

Car won't start after oil change .My brother and I changed the oil on his S type jaguar he just bought. when we were done it wouldn't start. I asked him what did he do. he said he drained the oil from the filter because he couldn't find the drain plug so we put the new filter on and replaced the oil that drained. The car is trying to start but won't turn over. Any suggestions?

    OK. I have more info. before I arrived at his house he tried to start the car with filter off to help drain the oil. I told him to take to the dealer or a shop but he thought he could do it. Has this damaged the engine even though it never turned over?

Sounds like overfill oil pressure too high. Oil level is critical. Engine can be damaged.

Your drain hose is under towards the bottom of the car, up against the firewall. You may be able to blow it out from the cowl. You may just have to do a fresh air service which is a special foam that kills the bacteria and such that builds on the evaporator from it sitting.

2000 Jaguar xj8 turn over won't start stability control fail light on.

the stab light comes on if the battery is low because you are cranking the engine your aj26 v8 engine may have a common problem for cars up to that model/year with worn nicosil coated bores ie. low compression check the vin no. at your jag dealer you can get it started by removing the spark plugs and putting a egg cup of engine oil in to each of the cylinders the first thing to do is to check for fault codes using a obd code reader for a clue followed by a compression test

I assume its a 3.0l? Just like any other car. Pull the drain plug on bottom of oil pan. Change the oil filter on bottom driver side (3600 series filters). It will take 7 quarts.

Changing oil in jaguar 2002 s type? Where is the oil filter?

jag-you-are would prefer that you take your car to one of their service centers!! probably has an internal filter element that needs special equip. to access and change out.lot of high end cars have that type of filter now. my brothers mercedes mid-1990s doesn't even have a tranny dip-stick! need special tools to check level! hard to be a 'shade-tree' mechanic anymore!
good luck!

When can I find instructions for changing the oil on my 2004 XJR?

Type in Jaguar service oil change on your brozer and as soon as you read two blogs that read the same or close enough, then get busy . Only the turbo cars have special directions. Starting off with a warm just shut off car, complete the work and restart the car right away is always good don't take your time as the oil can drain out of the bearings and then the oil oil pushing air though the system to the dry bearing equalls a dry start that can hurt any motor. As for getting the last little bit out, that little that stays in will mix with the new and be just as good if you are changing after a blown engine repair or other contanmination changing the oil more thean once is better than trying to get it all out and risk a dry start

Oil change for jaguar

That depends on the type of oil you use. You have more than one option for this car , you can go with Semi Sentetic / Castrol and replace from 8000 KM - 10000 KM or you can go with full sentetic that will give you from 20000 KM - 25000 KM.
