  1. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    I Decided to upgrade my radio with something current. So glad I did. Replaced with a pioneer with alpine rear 5.25 and front 6.5 in front and the sounds are fantastic. (Kept the original of course). With the top down jazz going and rock on the return ride.

    Dear All I have an XJS 3.6 from 1988. It developed a problem: The car starts (Needs a lot of cranking) and runs at first. The temperature needle climbs half way between C and N and stays there. If I drive about 10km and the engine gets warm, the car looses power and starts to backfire. It...

    Hi all, A friend has a barn-find, a 5.3 litre v12 engine off a Jaguar XJS. Unfortunately the rest of the car is missing but he'd like to see if it is a runner or not. It seems to be the later engine with fuel injection but that's as much as I know at the moment. What I was hoping is that...

    Hi folks What's the quickest online way to find part numbers? (I don't own a parts catalogue, just the repair operation manual.) I have an '88 XJS H.E. 5.3 V12 with missing door mirrors. Some thief had it away with mine, and I'm looking to replace. UK/London-based, the but car is in storage...

    Anybody see the above episode (Series 2, Ep 5)? Did they destroy an original mid 80s 6.0L TWR, or was it really a late 70s pre HE in a TWR bodykit?

    Hello everyone. I purchased a 1991 XJS Classic Edition convertible. It has been garaged all its life, but for the last six years it has just sat. The fellow that owned it was tired of it clogging up his storage space, so let me have it for a price that I felt I had some room to make it whole...
  11. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    Hi all, I bought a '91 XJS in the Spring of this year (boyhood dream ticked off bucket list!), and so this is going to be my first winter driving her. I live on Dartmoor, and a lot of the roads I have to drive around are unlikely to get much gritting (and there tends to be a higher rate of...

    Hello everyone, I know DarrylC had some issues with his scuttle and I too will join his club. Unfortunately for me I'm not as skilled as Darryl so if anyone finds this thread in the future, hopefully it will be useful. So as a complete noob, what is the process involved that will patch up my...

    I have an 89 XJS with ABS brakes. I don't feel very confident with the system as it seems it needs a large distance to stop the car. Moreover yesterday it was a hot day and after a quick drive on the highway I lost my brake pedal. After intense pumping I managed to stop the car and had the road...

    Hello Everyone. My intro and car can be seen here: But as summary, I'm 16 and I bought this car on the advice from someone who sells XJSs (not his car) that this XJS should be pretty good for the money. I'm being optimistic, but I'm also very...

    Hello Everyone. I have recently acquired a 1984 XJ-SC 3.6 manual and have one or two issues that I am working my way through and sorting. However, the one problem that I cannot get to grips with is a hesitancy problem when I hit the accelerator pedal. This is noticeably worse when the engine is...

    Hi there! New to the forums here. I have a 1996 XJS with 105,000 miles. It runs pretty well, however has a few significant issues: Needs both AC/heater blowers to be replaced, front left fender damaged, and needs a new top. Leaks a lot and it's raining like crazy this season. We were quoted...

    Hi everyone, newbie here please see profile...... Can anyone advise me on how to conduct a bench test for my instrument cluster on an 89 XJS V12. Had it out, traced the breaks in the flexi PCB (starting to look really flaky) and added grounds. On applying 12 v from battery results in...
