I would get complete set of maintenance records for that one. 250k is alot for a jag especially a V12. That one is either running on borrowed time or has been meticulously taken care of.

HOW TO FREE UP A STUCK VALVE ON MY V12


Doubtful the valve is "stuck". More likely to be burnt. It happens. Do a compression check then pull the head off and replace the valve that is losing compression.

Driving at 70mph on cruse control,engine lost power and cut out.When engine had cooled down it restarted? Jaguar is 1984 XJS V12 5.3 Ltr HE 72000 miles on clock,any sugestions!


I have found that in most cases the ignition amplifier is the culprit. As it sits on top of the engine ( it's the square black box near the throttle } it is susceptable to heat damage. If you take it apart you will find it is a common module you can buy at a parts house. Can't remember what type but if you take it with you it can be matched.

1989 jaguar xjs v12 fuel mixture


Chances are the coolant temperature sensor or its wiring have failed, or the vacuum line to the MAP sensor is leaky or broken (I believe the V12 in '89 guise uses MAP sensors). The MAP sensor measures Manifold Absolute Pressure. Along with this pressure the ECU looks at engine RPM. It also measures air temperature. Knowing pressure and temperature we know density, and knowing engine speed tells us how much volume of air is going through the engine. All of this together is computed into air mass and is used to calculate how much fuel mass should be admitted. If the vacuum line is broken, the ECU reads less vacuum and produces rich mixture thinking that the engine is under high load.

1989 XJS V12 furl problem


Obviously, fuel and oil should never be in the same spot at the same time. You have a dead cylinder and maybe a stuck-open injector. The black smoke is from a too-rich fuel mix, so the cheap things to look for are in the fuel injection system. Look at the fuel pressure regulator as well. Good luck, and don't forget to relieve the fuel pressure before you do any work on fuel inj. engines!
