1999 Jaguar XJR Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

The automatic transmission oil is synthetic and Jaguar claims it never needs changing. However, to prolong the transmission life our technicians strongly recommend changing the automatic transmission oil every 60,000 miles.
Use only Jaguar-approved fluid and carefully follow the Jaguar instructions for refilling the transmission.

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.

1999 Jaguar XJR Reviews

I bought a 1999 XJR with 115k miles on it but it has all the engine upgrades for the timing problems, I also replaced trans, rear end, and supercharger fluids, the car runs and rides fantastic. Only issue was a failed fuel pump, I found a good price on ebay and replaced both (there are 2 in the tank), was thinking of
replacing the oxy sensors but the are expensive and from what I've read almost never fail. I also just cleaned the maf sensor and went on a 350 mile trip and avg 23.7 mpg!! I guess using syn oil in everything really helps.
