Question about Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Hi, My Jag has just been fitted with a new crank sensor as I have broken down twice recently but it was always during say a 70 or 100 mile journey, started to misfire and loose power. Its was fine on short journey's though, any way does anybody know what the exact symtoms are of a worn crank sensor? Got a new one on now but am still apprehensive!!

pop into local scrap yard and get a crank position sensor, fit it and if it works DAH DAH.. its not always best to fit 2nd hand parts because of reliability. but there no way off testing it because its an intermittent fault. if it cures it buy a brand new one ( or keep 2nd hand one on til that goes )

I would check the vacuum lines thoroughly as one may have collasped or previous owner replaced with a substandard one,which may be partially collaspe then upon warming up will vacuum itself shut causing the motor to surge then fail to run or start if it happens to be a main line that is affected.

Sounds more like the Alternator or Voltage regulator is not charging the battery correctly. Have the Alternator checked. If you remove it and take it to Auto Zone or Advance Auto they should be able to test it for you.

I had the same problem on my 1998 XJ8. My dealer told me it was the Mass Airflow Meter, which needed replacing to the tune of around $500. After a second opinion at my local Jag mechanic, it turned out to be a hose that was broken on the lower part of the front of the engine. Check the vacuum hoses for breaks or loose fittings.

Engine failure mode message on display


Hi Keith

Probably those little Jag gremlins at it again ?

First thing to do is clear the computers memory, which normally does the trick.

Disconnect both battery terminals, switch on the ignition to start 6 times, this wipes the computer memory, and then reconnect the battery, the Positive + first......... then the Negative -----

Start the car and go from there.

Suspect you had a low battery previously, and this tripped the warning.

Get the battery checked, if it is the original, as it is now 8yrs old, and should be replaced.


Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated Thank you !

John.
