The best all around oil is 10W30W, u can also use 5W30W in cooler climates, use any major brand, I like Valvoline, but any name brand will do just fine, synthetic oil is great if u plan to keep the car for many years, but it cost about 3X as much as conventional oil.

What type of engine oil should I use in a 1986 xj12 h.e. engine and should it be mineral or synthetic oil.


I would recommend a good 10W40 standard oil. The V-12 uses almost a case of oil ( 11 qts ) per change and synthetic would be really pricey. Also the Jag engines of that period had a tendency to leak oil, so much so that Jaguar put out a notice to call it "controlled seepage", so the rumour goes. Synthetic oil will leak at a greater rate than a nonsynthetic in an engine with leakage problems.

My 93 jaguar xl6 has an issue with the battery ! It keeps draining it no matter how new the batteries are


battery drain problems are time consuming to find and resolve. The Jag has a lot going on with the key on and with the key off. I would start by placing a meter on the battery and with the key off start pulling unswitched circuit fuses to see which one or more are putting an abnormal drain on the battery. Common causes are non factory alarm systems and other non factory installed accessories.

What type of oil should i use? for a 2002 jag.


A quick call to any jag dealer should give you specifics (or your owners manual) My personal recomendation is a synthetic 20w/50. Synthetics usually cover a wider range than indicated on the label, and will out perform any conventional lubricant.(regardless of brand) Therefore 20w/50 will give you all the protection you need against wear and will still retain a low pour point in temperature extremes.
