Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

4 Answers

I have a Jaguar XJ8 2000 model. I recently ran out of gas, and now my car won't start. I have gas in it now. I have changed the fuel filter, but I still can't get it to start. I hear that these cars have a cutoff switch on them so when the fuel level gets low like that it cuts off the spart. I am also told that it could be the fuses. Any help that you can offer me will be greatly appreciated.

    I have a 2003 S-Type Jag and recently ran out of gas. I had not started my car in about a week and just wanted it to warm up so I it run for a few minutes too long and it ran out of gas.



    Gas is in the car now and it cranks like it wants to turn over but will not start.

Yes it does have a cut switch, located on the fire wall in the engine compactment. If you push the black button it will reset it. I don't think it's that . I think you should check the fuse, if good you should leave the key in on position or the # 2 position for 5 minutes so the fuel pump can prime the line.


Good luck

When you run out of fuel the pump speeds up alot as it has nothing to pump, some XJ8`s that have suffered from this have been known to burn the wiring & connectors at the fuel pump & sometimes the pump itself.

The pump is located inside the top of tank which is in the boot (trunk) behind the back seat. it cant be accessed in situ due to there being no clearance.

Removal of the tank is not easy & is best left to a Jaguar specialist.

If you do attempt it, please disconnect & remove the battery for at least an hour beforehand, empty tanks explode alot easier than full ones so you dont want a spark!

If you do remove the battery you will need to reprogram the remote keyfobs & put the radio code in afterwoods (available from a Jaguar dealer).

Best of luck.

Will start but won't stay running


Try changing the fuel filter. Chances are when it ran out of gas it sucked all the old gunk and stuff into the lines. If that doesn"t work you may have to take it to a professional to have the gunk sucked out. Also after you change the filter dump some fuel injector cleaner into the tank that should clean up any remaining residue.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

Have a 2001 jaguar vanden plas. It won't start. It cranks fine battery is good but it won't turn over. I have been told could be fuel filter and or fuel pump. If you agree how do i change


To confirm that is is the fuel pump at issue here get a can of spray starting fluid and next time it won't fire up spray it into the air intake hose of the engine while someone cranks the engine over, if it lights right off then the pump may be the problem. A clogged fuel filter may cause loss of power but seldom if ever a no start.

Check your fuel pressure for a 4.3 it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off. And for a 2.2 it should be 41-47 psi with key on engine off.

Ran completely out of gas last week - put gas in - car started fine- ran a little rough and idled rough. Now 10 days later MIL light on in dash and perform service message. Won't go out after several


have the fuel filter changed and have the computer checked for codes incase something else is going on and they can be cleared to turn off the light.any dirt in the lines should be out of them by now.its possible that there is dirt in the injectors and a fuel system service should be done to clean them which is a recomended service on all cars anyways.you can have the fuel pressure checked while its in the shop to make sure the pressure is within specs.

1986 Jaguar XJ6 Won't start. rolls over but that is it. replaced fuel pump relay and fuel pump. seems to have fuel at pump inlet, nothing comes out the outlet. I am lost. car ran out of gas before this...


if your fuel pump and relay are new, how about your fuel filter, if your fuel pump is working but no fuel turns out, check fuel pump polarity, if ok, there will be a clogging in fuel lines, take a high pressure air and plug it to fuel outlet in fuel lines test port, allow air to go back up to fuel tank and observe if the air goes, if not, check or change fuel line, if the air goes to tank, direct your fuel relay pin 30 and 87 and check if the fuel runs to the injectors, if not, change a good fuel pump
