Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
Replaced motor twice-new water pump-new t-stat-new rad cap
drive car a few miles coolant light comes back on
open cap and is low on coolant
after driving coolant seems to be boiling over
original problem with motor was overheating --dealere recommended changing motor --im on third motor now
Ouch. Been down that road.
Sounds to me like a head gasket problem.
Pull your oil dipstick.
Is your oil watery?
Does your dipstick smell like coolant?
Does your coolant have an oily film on it?
You can have a dye leak test done to confirm it.
Should you be able just to have the head gaskets changed and not the engine, again..insist on thenewest, brand name, top of the line gaskets
Best of luck.
