I'm sorry to tell you this, but you are going to have to start from ground zero. Take your timing cover back off. Ensure that your NO. 1 Piston is at TDC (Top Dead Center) and that your cam is aligned properly. Once you've done that, put the timing chain back on and bolt everything back together. If your timing is off a little bit, your engine won't run. If your timing is off alot, then your valves will hit the piston heads and cause ALOT of damage.

Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

Try this before you do anything else. Charge the battery up and then after you charge the battery connect a known good jumper battery to the battery in the car as though you are jumping off a car with a dead battery.

My 2000 xj8 is turning but wont start 2 codes came up and they both have a canister purge solenoid replacement suggestion


You may not believe this, but it happened to me twice. Check the comperssion of the cylinders. If they are low. You have to rewet the cylinderrings. It is called washdown procedure this XJ6 engine is prone to losing compression if flooded, or stored a while...Some people will pour a small amount of oil in each cylinder. I have also heard using a small amount of power steering fluid poured in to the throttle throat. Mine started right up once compression was restored.
Wait for other comments to corroborate this, as I too did not believe it the first time.

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.

I ran out of gas and after fueling the car it still wont start dont think its getting any gas. the car is a 2001 jaguar xj8. How or where can i check fuel system?


if you ran completely out of gas you may have harmed the fuel pump,the gas is what keeps the fuel pump bearings lubricated.there is one thing you can try that has work alot of times in my line of work,the pump could just be stuck and you have one chance to get it going again,have a friend try to start your car while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a hammer,sometimes this vibration will unlodge the pump
