1999 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.

1999 Jaguar XJ8 Reviews

Bought mine in 2000 and have loved it ever since. Drove it for 10 years with hardly any problems. This year had to have the timing chain replaced and thermastat earlier this year, which was NOT cheap. It needed towed today, and we think it might be the fuel pump.... Even with that said.... LOVE LOVE LOVE my car!
