SOURCE: 2001 rodeo reduced power

I just went through this with my 2001 rodeo and the dealer needed to replace several parts over several weeks because they could not get the problem to go away.

-APP/throttle pos. sensor needs calibration/replacement
-air idle control needs replacing
-throttle body needs replacement
After months of going back and forth to the deal with the same problem, the throttle body was replaced last week and the problem has dissapeared....for now...

SOURCE: coil replacement How?

I guess as you may know , it has indidvidual coil packs for each cylinder. The ones on the driverside, 4,5, and 6 are easy to change. just unscrew the bolt holding the coil pack down on the plug and pull it off and unplug the coil pack from the locking plug by squeezing near the back where the wire goes in the plug. The ones on the passenger side require removing the intake manifold to get to them. This is not as hard as it may seem but the wires and a bracket connected in the back of the manifold do need to be disconnected in order to free the manifold for access to the coil packs. Wasnt such a hard job but a bit of a challenge.

SOURCE: not getting spark

Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest

Check engine light

Take you Jag in for its 6 Mon/1 yer maintenance schedule check up for the can rest the light. This engine light will come on when the vehicle has reached certain mileage and/or time interval.

Unless, if the vehicle is have some other problems, like fuel pump, it not running the correctly, ERG valve is out, O2 sensor is bad, etc. But if your Jaguar XJ8 is doing just dandy. Then it need to be other type of service; such as, coolant changed, differnial fluid needs to be changed, or the automatic transmission also needs to be changed. GB...stewbison

How do you reset an XJ8 radio?

Turn your key one turn ahead an let the car sit for a least 2 hours and the radio will unlock itself if this is what is going on with your Jag. Should put a battery pack on your battery while doing this or jumper cables.

Engine light on, noisy idling, short coolant-2001 JAG VDP

Take the car to a specialist to check the timing chain tensioners, they are a known issue. I`d advise you to not use (or even start) the car till theyve been ruled out, the engine could be made scrap if the tensioners goes.

If it does need tensioners, get the later metal type ones fitted.
