1989 jaguar xj6 new engine or new cylinder???

At that price replace the engine. Make sure though that you get a warranty for the engine that includes the cost of installation if the new one fails. Most shops will warranty for 90 days which is long enough to find out if there is going to be a problem.

Looking for the radio code for a 1989 Jaguar

You can only get the code from a Jag dealer - you'll have to prove you own the vehicle. You need the VIN and possibly the sale documents to prove it's your car.
