Jaguar Repair: 1984 XJ6 starter stuck?
If you see a pulse with a Noid light the next test is to check if it is operating the injectors. This is easy to do with a mechanic s stethoscope and just listen to them as you spin the engine. Injectors are nothing but solenoids and they Click as they operate....

Jaguar Repair: 1984 XJ6 starter stuck?
Hi Michael, You said no Click so the first thing to check is the starter relay on the fire wall in the engine compartment just at the rear of the cylinder head. The starter relay is the larger relay (metal can). Remove the large white w/red tracer wire...

Jaguar Repair: 1984 XJ6 not starting
Michael, clear something up for me. You say it starts and runs when you spray starting fluid into the intake. Did you mean that it will only keep running as long as you keep spraying starter fluid in? Or does it run on it s own after the starting fluid is...

Jaguar Repair: E-type Air rail
If the vacuum hose is off of it you are correct that it is not working. (providing it s valve is not leaking) Yes, some of the TR-7s had a cam on the linkage to open and close vacuum to the EGR valve. Yes, it was a pain because they would make changes in...

Jaguar Repair: E-Type Starter problem

Jaguar Repair: 1973 E-type not starting
Your loss of power with the key in the ON position has nothing to do with the starter solenoid or starter. You must have power to the (+) side of the coil as soon as you turn the key to the ON position. Since you have a 12v coil the power must come...

Jaguar Repair: 1984 XJ6 not starting
OK, then you have established that you are getting no fuel from the injectors or what ever it is injecting is not fuel. The fact that if you keep spraying starter fluid proves that the ignition system is working. Compression is not great but is enough to run....

Jaguar Repair: 1973 E-Type not starting part 3
Hi Steve, The relay terminals C-1 and C-4 are connected together inside the relay so it does not matter which connection is made. C-2 supplies power to C-1 and C-4 when the relay is activated. The electro magnet in the relay is energised by W-1 and W-2...

Jaguar Repair: E-type V12 valve clearances

Jaguar Repair: 1984 Jaguar XJ-S HE
Ok, now that you know that connecting the two gauge wires together does not make the needle do anything (with the key on) now you need to start testing. Just as amy Jaguar mechanic would need to do at this point. The tests are not difficult and only require...

Jaguar Repair: fuses
Hi Mike, The correct method of testing a fuse in a fuse panel is to test for power on both sides of the fuse while it is in place just as you have done. Too many mechanics just remove the fuse and look at it to see if it is burned. But on any fuse especially...

Jaguar Repair: voltage stabilizeer
Yes, the mount is the ground and the green wires are power wires and the Green w/black tracer wire/s are the 10v output to the gauges. Sometimes Lucas put two green w/black tracer wires in one spade connector and other times they ran two green w/black tracer...

Jaguar Repair: voltage stabilizer
Symptoms of any electrical problem are almost completely useless for diagnosing the problem. The ONLY way to find the fault is by testing. There are only two wires on the gauge. (except a light bulb wire) There is a plain green wire that is the power wire...

Jaguar Repair: voltage stabilizer
OK that was correct. But when you put the black test lead on the case of the Voltage Stabilizer and the red lead on the output of the stabilizer you didn t get the 10 volts you were suppose to get ? The stabilizer was connected to the fuel and temp gauges...

Jaguar Repair: 1981 jaguar xj6 overfueling on cold start
Hi Melvyn, You seem to have had a series of problems. I am not convinced that they are all related. Your car is 35 years old. So it is common to have several failures at one time. Lets cover one at a time. First a battery that explodes does it for a...

Jaguar Repair: horns

I worked for BMC and BLM in dealerships through almost the whole life of the MGB and I never seen the bolts shear off on the disk to hub. My guess is that the disks were replaced by a mechanic who used a air wrench to tighten the bolts and thus he over stretched...

Jaguar Repair: blown fuse/electrical

Jaguar Repair: compression
Hi David, It is not unusual to see results like that. You didn t say if on the dry test that you held the throttle wide open. But your figures are not far out of line so I would guess your engine is ok. One thing about the XJ-6 is that it can t handle...

Jaguar Repair: fuel leak
Hi David, There is no specific place a Stromberg Carburetor can leak. It can be from any one of a half dozen places and reasons. We dry the area off with an air hose and then with a small mirror and a light we turn on the fuel pump and look for the source...

Jaguar Repair: fuel line re-route
The only reason they routed the fuel through the coolant of the AC unit was to cool the fuel before it returned to the tanks. The pumping of the fuel to the front and returning most of it to the tanks heated the fuel which caused tank pressure. To try to control...

Jaguar Repair: water in cabin
