2001 Jaguar XJ8 Problems

Overheated engine may damage cylinder bores
If this engine is allowed to severely overheat, the cylinder bores will suffer damage, resulting in excessive engine oil consumption.
Center Arm Rest Cup Holder May Break

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

Plastic Timing Chain Tensioners May Fail and Cause Engine Damage

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.
