2001 Jaguar XK8 Problems
Problems when opening or closing the convertible top may be fixed by flushing the hydraulic fluid and replacing it with an improved Jaguar fluid.
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 at 60,000 miles.
Use only Jaguar-approved fluid and carefully follow the Jaguar instructions for refilling the transmission.
The thermostat may stick partially closed resulting in an engine to overheating condition. Replacement of the stuck thermostat should correct this problem.
Engine overheating may be caused by a failed water pump impeller; an improved water pump is available.
