SOURCE: 2004 xj8 jaguar a/c fan

there is a relay on the firewall for that but check the fuses first to make sure its not blown...if its not blown you can run a jumper wire to test the motor itself to see if it works or not.

SOURCE: 1998 jaguar xj8 consumes anti-freeze

First thing to check is the radiator cap seal. If it is not sealing properly, the water will boil off and then soon, the anti freeze will begin to disappear. Clean the metal surfaces and gasket and make sure it is tight ---or buy a new cap --but make sure there is a seal. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a head gasket leak that blows the coolant (anti freeze) into one cylinder. If that cylinder is tight, the coolant will only evaporate in the heat and be blown out the exhaust --not entering the oil pan. Check your exhaust when you start up. You may see white smoke, or even liquid, exiting the exhaust pipe, indicating a blown head gasket (then engine may run rough, too). If this is the case, there are reasonably inexpensive cures for this in some cases.

SOURCE: AC BLOWER NOT BLOWING

The resistor that controls the blower motor. it is a small gadget that has a 2 or 3 wire plug . Replacing the resistor should fix your problem. It is on or near the blower motor. Under the dash. Not easy to remove . But it can be. Please give thumbs up if helped.

SOURCE: My 2004 Jaguar xj8 will not release both latches

If your bonnet will not release, there is a rubber plug inside fender located up in
the wheel well under the latch. Remove the plug, stick a screwdriver up and pry the latch
back. The hood / bonnet will open.

Is valve lash damaging? And should I get it fixed soon?


the valve lash ( clearance) should be hydraulic and self adjusting. If you have a noise it may be from rocker bushes and rocker arm. Any valve noise means that the correct valve timing is not happening so that affects power and economy.

What are the valve lash specs for 2007 Honda Accord V6?


There is a specific procedure for setting valve clearance . I highly recommend getting a repair manual for the correct specs & procedure. The engine must be at TDC with the #1 cylinder on the compression stroke , that will allow you to adjust ONLY certain valves , then you have to turn the engine one turn to TDC again only now #1 will be on the exhaust stroke & the rest of the valves can be adjusted . it's important that you know the difference between the two !

    • Exhaust valves: 0.005-0.007 inches (0.13-0.17mm)
