Question about Jaguar XK8
Hi, can you have someone watch the engine while you crank it? The starter not engaging is one possibility. Another is a separated flexplate. Either way, if the engine isn't turning, you will have to remove the starter. You can easily test the starter buy reconnecting the terminals after removal. Check to see if the gear is moving up the shaft. If not, replace. If starter is OK, look into tranny to see if flexplate is loose. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
