Problems when opening or closing the convertible top may be fixed by flushing the hydraulic fluid and replacing it with an improved Jaguar fluid.

Drive Train -- Verified

Use only Jaguar-approved fluid and carefully follow the Jaguar instructions for refilling the transmission.

2002 Jaguar XK8 Reviews

2002 XK8 Coupe bought with 112k miles, black/black. Despite having apparently been well serviced immediately had problems with knock sensors and emissions control. $1500 to repair.
Since then runs great, rides and drives great on the highway. In town ride is rough as could be expected.
Think that a relationship with a mechanic familiar with these cars would be a plus. Think that its worth the pain though. Would buy it again.
