Mine the same, done timing chains and tensioners, gas analyser shows it to be running rich on one bank only, swapped injectors with other bank and changed all 'o' rings. Isn't running rich when revs above 1500 so think it may be VVT on one cam, removed solenoids and found shuttle valve sticking in on one side, shuttle springs back out on other bank, going to replace in near future, maybe you have same problem, get exhaust gasses analysed to find if one bank running rich when idling.

My low oil pressure and low engine oil light are constantly coming on in my van but the oil is full?


If you have two different warning lights, it could be a wiring problem.
The low oil pressure warning could come on even if the engine is full of oil. If that is the only light coming on, it could be the sending unit or you could actually have low oil pressure.

MY 1998 JAGUAR XJ8L IS TURNING OVER BUT WONT START. MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN DRIVING IT AND SAID A "LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT WAS COMING ON. I JUST CHECKED THE OIL AND THERE IS NONE IN THERE!!! HOW MANY QUARTS...


Start with one quart but continue to put it in until the level reaches the full mark on the dipstick. Your car requires synthetic oil, 5/30w is fine, personally I wouldn't put synthetic in right away as I would check to see if it starts first and then if it does, change all the oil to synthetic asap. I say this only because there is no point pouring expensive oil into an engine that may require major repairs...which is possible if it was run low on oil for any length of time.

Hope this helps,
Dave

2002 Ford Van E-150 the check oil light comes on and of, oil preassure drops at take off, but comes back to normal once I'm driving. Oil level is fine. any ideas. Van only has 120,000 miles on it


Hi. These fluctuating pressure readings are a strong indication of oil pump failure. The oil pump is damaged. I recommend to replace this failing oil pump, and screen. Once replaced, the oil pressure will stabilize.

Stability control fail Jaguar XJ8


this may sound crazy but what sort of fuel are you running? Try filling the car with premium 98 octane and run it - if you are running inferior grade or dirty fuel the throttle body sensors will register a differential in the burn/energy and throw a fault. The bad news is that a faulty throttle body will cause the same problem and cost a fortune to replace.

Jaguar codes


thats interesting, the pecus lighting up on your dash means a control module wasnt fully programed, or in the process of being programed. ive only seen that pecus warning light once when a module failed to download the proper information. The low oil light and this pecus fault are not related.

The only way to get that light off is to bring it to a jaguar dealership.

In my case went this happened to me i was performing a recall that had me go though this download process. Now, if this problem applies to the recall then jaguar will pay for the repair and all you have to pay for is the diagnosis fee which is different with any dealership.

You can check on-line, for have the dealership look to see if their are any recalls on your vehicle.
