lift the vehicle level, so readings are acurate. there is a plug on the rear of the differential. the fluid should be level with the plug. it is usually ok to see a small drip when you remove the plug but if nothing comes out, your low on fuid. consult your local dealer for correct fluid to add.
The oil pressure light comes on if the car is out of oil, or the oil pressure sending unit is malfunctioning. Check oil level, if oil is up to fill level then your oil pump is bad. DO NOT DRIVE the car. Have it towed to a Jaguar dealership or other reputable garage.
It's Just under 7litres. Google XK8 Oil Capacity for specific figures and the correct oil to use.
The XK8 is computer chip limited to 155mph.
where is the starter located on a jaguar xk8?
Yes, the Jaguar XK8 does have a fuel pump.
There isn't one on a 98 XK8.
Check the fuse panel on passengers side in the door well
Wait until it drains out the dipstick tube, return automible onto it's wheels and add oil. Its easier to change the oil if the Jag is not on its roof, but the oil filter is harder to reach.
Where is the place of the canshaft position sensor in1998 xk8
If the windows do not lower automatically when opening door (to clear convertible top) and then raise atomatically when door is shut, then check your battery. Right after I purchased my 2001 XK8 used, it cost me $300 at the Jag dealer for a new battery to learn this tidbit.
from what I hear ther is no dipstick there is a plug in the rear to add fluid and a level on the side to check the amount of fluid but ROM what I hear there is no diptick at the top like the rest of the cars supposedly this trans never needs servicing
There is a key hole between the X and K on the rear XK8 emblem.
on the face of the transmition console is a small pin hole you have to insert a very small pointed object and while pushing on it moved the shifth level
hi there only jaguar dealers or jag aproved garages will be able to reset the xk8 system regards cr4zy_jaguar
The Jaguar XK8 convertible model car comes with an 8 cylinder engine. Some car enthusiasts like to upgrade the XK8 with stronger engines but 8 cylinders is always what the car ships with directly from the dealership.
Been blatently honest there isn't a lot of work involved here. Jaguar xk8 generally does all the work herself. Shiftingwise.
Yes a Parrot CK3100, it works in my 96 XK8 (97 MY if you are American)
