Question about 1993 Jaguar Xj Series
No spark 93 jaguar xj6 car started and drove .turned car off then tryed to restart would not start. had no spark!
Does it crank well and all that but with no spark or is the battery just dead? If the battery is dead, it either won't charge while alternator is spinning or the alternator doesn't charge well enough to keep the battery charged well. If it jumps and runs indefinitely, battery is done. If it jumps and dies, alternator is done. If battery and alternator are fine, and you have no spark, you may need a new coil, new spark plug wires if they are worn out and too resistant, pick up coil inside of distributor, or you may have some other ignition system issue.
Most times when an alternator fails, it starts charging less and less till the car won't keep running or it won't start the next time. If the alternator hasn't failed, the battery needs replacing. If your battery is 5 or more years old this is a very good possibility. If your alternator failed and you have killed your battery many times before replace them both. Each time you drain a battery to dead you lose about 10% of its current capacity.
If the battery is fine and engine will not turn, starter may need replacing. Hope I helped.

I have had a similar problem and found that the centre wire from coil to distributor cap had slipped back just far enough from inside the coil to not make a good connection..and no spark meant cranking but no spark to plugs...
