XJ Lovers - FAQ's and Technical Information

Frequently Asked Questions and Technical Information

Attention: First Time Site Visitors! Please visit the below page before continuing!

In order to better serve our members, we have consolidated reference materials, technical specifications, interchange guides, and other resources that the owner or prospective owner of an XJ series car should have. All the items on this page are free for use; presented by Jag-Lovers at no charge.

Technical Information: Capacities, ratings, specifications, the owners' manuals, the Series III owner's audio cassette, and more.

XJ FAQ's: Frequently asked questions from the XJ discussion list. Covers repairs, how-to's, enhancements, and the like.

The XJ-S Book: Why is there a online book for the XJ-S listed here? The XJ and XJS share at least 80% parts commonality, more in the case of the XJ12. The suspension, climate control, and many other major components are identical. Those that are not identical are very similar. This is a very large and comprehensive compendium of technical information and repair procedures; it is updated regularly by its author, Kirby Palm.

The XJ Bumper To Bumper Book: While not as exhaustive as the XJ-S volume, this online book contains great information about the XJ, some of which is not found elsewhere. Another Jag-Lovers exclusive, written by Jim Isbell. You will require Adobe Acrobat to view this document.

JagCare III: Probably the definitive treatise on how to care for your XJ, written by Dr. Gregory Andrachuk. Many pictures and detailed descriptions, as well as excellent advice. You will require Adobe Acrobat to view this document, and since it is 4.8mb in size we recommend that you save it to disk and view it offline.

EFI vacuum diagram: EFI vacuum diagram for the fuel-injected S2 and S3 XJ6. You will require Adobe Acrobat to view this document.

The Jag-Lovers Parts Interchange: Surprisingly, Jaguar sourced many of their parts from manufacturers like GM, Borg-Warner, Timken, and others. This free online resource is a searchable database of known parts that fit, are identical, or will interchange with sometimes expensive Jaguar-labelled parts.

The Discussion List Archive: A searchable database of literally thousands of posts from the past several years of the Jag-Lovers discussion lists. Anything that's not covered in the above resources will almost certainly be in these archives. Almost everything about these cars is known, and this wisdom is stored online for you to access. To speed your search, we have a customized version of the general search page here -this will search only the XJ archives.

JagWeb: If you are seeking vendors, clubs, or shops in your area, stop in here.
