Jaguar XJS Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

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.

My '92 Jaguar xjs convertable hood release cable broke. How can we open the hood/bonnet? Is there a provision for this happening?

Fred in Palm Desert
