Jaguar XJS Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Jaguar XJS

Jaguar XJS Problems

The upper bushings on the front shock absorbers are prone to failure and may produce a rattling/jingling noise as the car is driven over bumps.

Although a high rate of engine-related fires have been reported with this engine, most can be attributed to neglected maintenance. The fuel hoses in the engine compartment should be inspected periodically.

Touring at it's best! at 100mph blows away Corvettes

this car requires a little maintenance but it is really a pleasure to drive.

power steering is hard to add fluid, cannot even see it, and hard to work on.
