Pennzoil High Mileage 10w30 as well as a Fram High Mileage filter. 10w30 is an all around oil that's suitable for ALL temperature ranges, except for below zero degrees Fahrenheit...possibly -10 degrees. Any other oil has a range that's not acceptable in ranges above 60 degrees Fharenheit or below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. I would also recommend putting a BG® product in your oil when changing it called MOA. This will "clean" the mechanical parts of detergents left from all the other oils used thus far that have stuck to various components. Insofar as changing the oil? Every 5000 miles, with the newer oils available is enough. The old 3000 mile rule is over-kill now a days..

What is the recommended oil to use in 2006 XJ8L Jaguar that has 52,000 miles. I currently use Castrol but I can't remember the wt. I would like to get more mileage before the next oil change, so what...


I switched to a full synthetic oil, and never looked back. You can get 10000 miles out of full synthetic easily. Some people say you never have to change it, but i go 10000 and have for 90,000 miles and still runs smooth as the day i bought it. Castrol Syntec is a very good synthetic oil.

The best recommended oil for lincoln 1997 4.6 L V8 with over 300,000 miles also what would be the most fuel efficent recommended brand spark plug


originally it calls for 5w-30, but you could probably go to 10-30 or even 10w-40 since at 300,000 miles it seems logical that clearances are not what they used to be-and congratulations, that is some achievement!

Coolant light comes on


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.

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Oil


Jaguar recommends Castrol brand oil with the following comments:
5W30 is the 'preferred' weight to use for the best fuel economy, however, it's recommended to use when the outside temp is between -31 degrees F and +95degrees F. So if you live in a hot climate, they recommend 0W40, for temps between -31F and +122F, or 5W40 for temps between -22F and +122F. I'm not sure of their recommendation for how often to change the oil, but 3K miles or twice a year (whichever comes 1st) is the way to go. countrycurt0

Jaguar xjr 2004


the motor is "sealed" by the factory... you need a special tool.... it does beg the question. it sounds like you are trying to remove the whole oil pan. why ??

There should be a drain plug that you can unscrew to change the oil.
