I recently purchased an XJ6 in Ultraviolet Blue (anyone else like this one?) and I was prewarned by the seller of a couple of little issues that I’d like some advice on if possible (as my initial troubleshooting hasn’t worked)
The first is the power windows not working if the dash...
So I have a 1979 xj, i am not 100% sure if it is a xj6 or xj 12 because it had a small block chevy in it when i bought it. The problem i am having is, I have managed to grenade the rear diff. the pin holding the spider gears failed and calamity ensued. i cannot for the life of me find the...
Hunting 1989 Jag XJ reg: F751 JVR - where is it?
Tying to track down a 1989 Jag. XJ40 variant.
I wonder if anyone here knows the location of this January 1989 Jag XJ 3.6L had 4 front head lamps (rather than 2 big lamps) so I think it was a sport. It was dark blue.
DVLA show V5 last issues in...
Hi everyone and greetings from Australia.
I recently purchased our first Jag - a 1996 XJ6 4.0S from Japan which should reach us any day now.
Just wondering if any experts are on the forum that can shed light on this specification of this model? I’ve read that in the US all X300 XJ6s were...
I've been looking into a bit of a headlight issue I'm trying to wrap my head around.
From what I've read everyone meets Lucas the prince of darkness at some stage of Jaguar ownership.
I've completed the recommendations on this page, including cleaning and checking fuses of my right hand...
Planning engine swap on my XJ6 x300 155kw with xjr6 engine 267kw. Any posts here on the forum about this or any thoughts what you think?
Is it possible to swap to manual gearbox aswell?
All info welcome
All the best!
Does anyone know how to go about fixing a broken key immobiliser and/or resetting the odometer (if you can do that?) on a 1990 Jag XJ6 Sovereign?
I'm only just getting into mechanics and am wanting to learn more and fix my first car.
Thanks everyone! :)
The battery on my XJ6 2012 3.0L Diesel Premium Luxury Jag (U.K. model) is totally discharged/flat and therefore I cannot open the luggage compartment to recharge the battery. My model does not have any manual key access to the boot (trunk). I understand from my manual (see 2-pages 66 & 67...
I just purchased a 1992 Jaguar XJ6 and its all around amazing. My only issue is the radio. I have a spare code and everything but whenever i turn the radio on. It just makes a very loud beeping noise with a bunch of weird symbols on the radio screen. Anyone have any idea whats going on
Greetings fellow Jaguar owners and enthusiasts. Took a break of ownership after my last 2002 XJ8 left me stranded with the evil plastic timing chain tensioners that gave way, yet again. Back as a renewed owner with a 2004 XJ8 with only 69,xxx miles on her. Black beauty. I'm sure I'll be checking...
Hello, I am new to this forum. I need a replacement 2.7 diesel engine for a Jaguar XJ (X350), year 2005.
The same engine is fitted to Jaguar S-type, Peugeot 407, and these are now affordable.
Does anyone have experience of installing that installing used engine from Jaguar S-type or Peugeot...
Hope you guys don'y mind me asking a similar question (again) on which to choose, i'm just so indecisive and need some expert opinions and guidance.
Anyway, i've spent a good few hours going over similar forums trying to condense all the information but all its done has confused me more! As i...
I bought my first Jaguar, a series I XJ6 in 1982 at the age of 19. I had a few Jaguars and Daimlers in the years that followed.
I have not owned a Jaguar since 1992.
I have decided to go for an X type estate diesel, partly as a comparison exercise, and partly because I do miss...
Sorry to trouble you all but I am looking for some information.
I have purchased a Jaguar XJ6C Convertible from a elderly gentlemen, who bought it to restore in around 1993 (off the road 21 years), since this point the car has been untouched in his garage (partly stripped).
The donor car I was hoping to get is not available (Australia NQ they're not easy to find). ON my own engine I have removed the head worked on it myself ( trustworthy mechanics who know anything or will touch Jags are also not easy to find), thought I'd switched the cams :oops: but no, looking...
Hi I was wondering if any one has had a issue with starting. My Daimler Six on a M reg (1995) has ignition but is not turning over or firing, I'm guessing it's an immobiliser issue but how will I bypass this? Or confirm the immobiliser is at fault.
I am in a desperate situation. I am in Spain and due to travel to England tomorrow with a XJ40 (1992). The last days there have been problems starting the car. I turn the key and all looks set for the car to start. All dash lights are working. The engine slightly 'turns' as if it...
I have a 2003 XJ6 and recently have noticed an intermittent problem where the rev counter will flicker/fluctuate about 500 rpm when travelling at around 35-50mph and using light throttle. As soon as you accelerate harder the issue disappears. The engine idles perfectly and is...
