Wrong model designation ali. It's either a c230 or a c280. The 4 cyl 230 spark plugs are located under the red cover on top of the engine. The plugs are down the center of the valve cover under this cover. The coils are on top of the plugs. Remove the cover, coils, and then the plugs. If it's a 280 v6 you have 2 plugs in each cyl. The arangement there is more conventional. The coils are bolter to the valve covers and have short wires to the plugs that are on the side of the motor just below the valve covers. Be careful removing the metal plug connectors. They will pull apart if you try and pull them loose by grabbing the wire. You need plug removal type pliers. Twist the metal end and pull like a mad man, repeat 11 more times! Good luck!

You can check for leaks in the vacuum lines and at the throttle body. Check for crossed plug wires and check for a cracked spark plug insulator. Hope that Helps. Email me if you have checked those things and still have a problem. In the meantime I will keep looking for a solution, from that point it gets more costly.

How about the spark? Do the spark plugs get spark? If not, then check out the ignition system in the service manual.

Remove the spark plugs. If dirty clean and adjust proper gaping. If you have done more than 100,000 miles it would be a good idea to change them.

How are you going to look into without help. Make sure that you have a good ignition spark at the plugs, so check the plugs, the wires, the coils , Nowone one side of the coil you will get +12 and on the other side a pulsating +12 , this impulse should be very good toproduce a high intensity spark.
now check your feul pressure and flow, check timing /tuning
your car must start without any issues.

I have a jaguar xj6 jf saloon 87 model and im having trouble starting the engine. Checked the spark plugs and have spark the engine turns over but refuses to start please help

Not sure if it would be the same problem, but I had a 1986 xj6 that was acting up a few years ago, and it turned out to be that the fuel injectors where not working right. On mine, there was a box in the lower right front the was like a control box for the injectors, and the circuit board started to corrode and make intermittent problems with starting and running. Sorry I could not be more detailed... Good luck.
