SOURCE: 1997 Jaguar XK8 cooling system

The radiator drain is on the right lower corner of the radiator (passenger)
You can use a wide flat blade screwdriver to unscrew it.
Is is held in by a piece of plastic so you don't have to worry about losing it when draining. just loosen it and leave it there.

Just bought my 1998 XK8. Engine sounds great but no record of changing the timing chian tentioner. Should I worry? Also thecruse control is no longer operating is it simple to fix? L yes can the telephone...


if it sounds ok then leave it alone ,change oil every 6000m and oil filter every third oil change and use the cheapest oil for a diesel/petrol you can find so engine stays clean and it will last forever ,cruise ?well this could be anything so ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,as for the phone well sometimes your better off without the thing .

check your lock relays located in the interior fuse panel. Sometimes the actual connections to the fuse block can come lose and the relays wont work properly. My 2000 silverado did the same thing till i bent the pins on the relay for a tighter fit.
