1991 Jaguar XJS Classic 5.3 from North America
Trouble car - unsatisfied
At first the car would not start; replaced the starter and it did not start.
Replaced the ECU, and fuel pump and relay. It finally started, then it was burning too much fuel. Changed the spark plugs and still the same, changed the fuel injector assembly and that did not fix it. Replaced the coolant temperature sensor and that was the problem.
Drove around neighborhood for a couple of times, and then took a 40 minute ride, came back home and parked it. The next day I tried to start it and it did not, after all I had spent to get it running.
I checked for power at the coil plug, and there is power, but no power is sent to the wires, no power at the crankshaft sensor plugs, and the top won't work either. Also the radio and the window regulators. I checked all relays and fuses; they seem to be OK. I'm afraid that the ECU has gone.
If any of you know about this problem with this model, please send a comment and I will try your suggestion. Thanks for reading my complaint.. Thank you.
Unsatisfied with this car. Never had a problem like it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
