I had this exact car and I had all the same problems your talking about, The pump although I can't tell you for sure is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it. If it is whining it is because it is low on fluid, also when topping it off fill it to the full mark while it is running. If it is foamy turn the steering wheel all the way left and all the right a few time to help get rid of the air. You may have to let it sit a while to let the bubble escape, check and do this again, it could be a bad pump also. The overheating problem I had with mine was a bad temp sensor for the computer. It has two temp guages and the computer uses on to activate the fan as needed. I also had another problem with mine, on the front of the intake is a small plastic elbow for a heater hose and this goes bad. Had to replace mine. Wasn't hard, and the part was cheap. Hope this helps you!

There is no reserve. You will need to add it at the dipstick.

SOURCE: power steering fluid or ATF

Yes There Is ONLY ONE PLACE for Power Steering Fluid.

ZF Gemmer Steering

The ZF Gemmer steering is permanently filled with oil. There is no drain plug.

ZF Rack and Pinion Steering Without Power Assist

The ZF rack and pinion steering is lubricated for its service life and therefore does not require servicing.
In case of repair, steering components on E21 vehicles are to be lubricated with a sodium-based grease, with a temperature range of -30°C to +75°C .
Calypsol D 4024 BMW Part No.32 11 1 116 929

Ball and Nut or Rack and Pinion Power Steering

Only reputable brand Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) of Dexron® III formulation may be used for the power steering and power steering pump.
In case of brief hydraulic noise after starting at low outside temperatures, we recommend replacing the red ATF with green CHF or LHM oil (see below).

ZF Ball and Nut Power Steering with H31 System

The approved oils for BMW models with power steering and the H31 brake booster system are identical with those oils approved for power steering without the H31 system except for the following:

E32 models with self-leveling rear suspension and mutual oil supply tank in the engine compartment.
Countries with very low outside temperatures (e.g. Canada) had their power steering systems filled at the factory with Pentosin CHF 7.1 since 9/87 through 9/91. This is also to be used on vehicles built before 9/87.

Since 9/91, vehicles now use Pentosin CHF 11S instead of CHF 7.1.

Pentosin CHF 7.1 BMW Part No.81 22 1 468 879
Pentosin CHF 11S BMW Part No.82 11 1 468 041

These cars are marked with a pertinent label located close to the oil tank.

LHM oils (green color) of the following manufacturers may also be used instead of Pentosin (CHF 7.1):
Shell LHM
Castrol LHM
Exxon LHM

The mixing of CHF, LHM oils and ATF is not permitted.

Pentosin CHF 4548 was used on vehicles built before 9/87 but is no longer available. However, mixing of Pentosin CHF 7.1 with residual quantities of Pentosin CHF 4548 are permiffed in these earlier vehicles. Mixing of these two oils is not permitted for E32/E38 vehicles.

The hydraulic system for power steering and power-assisted brakes must be drained as completely as possible when changing from one type of oil to the other.
All oil supply reservoirs are marked with the type of oil being used - ATF or CHF.

SOURCE: My 1997 jaguar xj6 blows air but no heat. Can

the only thing that can change the air from hot to cold, or vice versa is the blender door. under your dash is a box which has 2 compartments. one with your heater core which is hot and one with ac which is cold. the blender door basically diverts which on the air in your car is being drawn from. if it is cold, air is moving on the ac side. if its hot, air is moving through the heater core side. if its warm, the door is in the middle. your temperature control knob is conecteted to an actuator, which moves that door. the actuator is a motor, but if it goes out, the door will be stuck on whichever side it is on. i would check that first. hope this helps

Are xj6 power steering because i am looking to buy one but went on a test drive the streeing was very very stiff far more stiffer that normal are xj6 power steering


Yes, they come standard with power steering. There was most likely a problem with the power steering pump on the one you test drove. The power steering fluid could be low or dirty. Also, the pump could be worn out which would make the steering a bit stiff as you found. I would ask the seller about it and also check the fluid level, if low or dirty then request it to be changed and then test it. Hope this helps!

What color is my power steering fluid supposed to be in a jaguar? mine is not clear as it would be in a domestic vehicle. it is a milky brown. also what runs the power steering? as far as I can tell it is...


Think its time to get it flushed. Your fluid is the red, not clear. How long has it been since the last flush? And yes the serpentine belts runs the pump. All vehicles have this.
But it does need flushing, esp when brownish.
Hope this helps.

WHERE DO I PUT POWER STEERING (MINERAL OIL) IN MY 1996 JAGUAR XJ-6?


In the power steering reservoir, try the right fender, resevoir is black plastic tank. Unscrew lid CLOCKWISE. Make sure it is the correct tank before putting the fluid in, most times it will specify on the lid what it is.

Power steering fluid


I would use just power steering fluid. ATF can be used but has a tendincy to "clean out" and sometimes cleans out seals, causing it to leak.
