The fuel has definately gone bad. The new fuels they are refining do not stay as long as the old gasoline. You will need to drain the tank and refill with fresh fuel. Once you do that, remove the sparkplugs, remove the coil wire ( to prevent a fire ) and crank the engine for about 10 seconds. Replace the spark plugs and it should fire right off after that. Let me know if you need anything else.

My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong


Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

Jaguar x type battery dead


What year and engine size is this 2008 jaguar x type?

Are you sure the battery is good, did you have it tested, next if battery is good and you can see bright headlights when you turn them on then i would look at the fuses, if you jump started it you may have blown a fuse.

when you say no ignition what do you mean? are the dash lights coming on when you turn the key?

Is the problem that you have no knd of power to car or every thing lights up but nothing happens when you try to crank engine, or does engine crank (SPIN OVER) but not start up ?

let me know the answers to these questions and i will help you. good day

2000 Jaguar xj8 turn over won't start stability control fail light on.


the stab light comes on if the battery is low because you are cranking the engine your aj26 v8 engine may have a common problem for cars up to that model/year with worn nicosil coated bores ie. low compression check the vin no. at your jag dealer you can get it started by removing the spark plugs and putting a egg cup of engine oil in to each of the cylinders the first thing to do is to check for fault codes using a obd code reader for a clue followed by a compression test

The car hasnt been started in 3 years.what should i do to get it running?


I would suggest to drain the fuel tank, if it has not been done already.........

Put a new battery, in, dont just charge the old one, as it is more than 3 years old......

Remove the spark plugs, and crank engine a few times to remove dust, and debris from inside the cylinders...this will also aid in lubricating the cylinder walls with oil before it starts.

I would aslo sugget changing the engine oil a week after running it, as this would have degraded as well, by just sitting there.

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.

Jaguar S Type V8 2000 starting problem


a common problem with the jaguar aj26 v8 engine around that year is low compression due to wear on the nicosil coated bores to get it started you can try removing the fuel pump relay in the boot/trunk fuse box and cranking the engine and keeping the throttle pedal to the floor when it fires get someone to help and put the relay back in has it fires.if not take all the plugs out and put a couple of sqirts of engine oil from a oil can or similar in to each cylinder crank the engine over a little with plugs out refit the plugs and retry
