1998 Jaguar XJ8 Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

Engine -- Verified

On this V8 engine, timing chain problems are very common. Because the timing chain tensioners were made from plastic, they can fail prematurely and cause serious engine damage. A noticeable engine noise while idling or during a cold start can indicate a timing chain tensioner problem. The engine noise may also be accompanied by a rough or uneven engine idle. Improved components are available to remedy this problem.

Engine -- Verified

If this engine is allowed to severely overheat, the cylinder bores will suffer damage, resulting in excessive engine oil consumption.
