SOURCE: Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE

hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

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.

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

My 2003 jaguar s-type says transmission fault, and it feels like its reving up to move into gear whats that mean


You will need an error code to determine the exact fault. Is the transmission due for a service? It may simply need new fluid, filter and adjusting. Possible issue - ECM needs upgrading, solenoid pack needs replacing. Take it into a workshop that knows what they're doing. This site may also be of help -

Hi, Do you have to lower the whole of the rear supension to change the rear shock absorbers on a jaguar xj8 2000 model


no they come preloaded and once you undo the hook it will open fully if anything a jack is all you will need to raise the shock up enough to place the bolt back into place

Flat battery every morning


With a full charge the battery needs to be load tested, then a draw test needs to be done, to determine where the draw is, when vehicle is sitting. Auto electrician should know how to isolate draw. If you decide to try it yourself, buy a 12v test light & get back to us, we'll explain how to do it.
