Re: Jaguar XJ8 - Rough Idling
My car is the XJ8 1998 model. V8 engine.Like i said the car idles
rough, like some pistons are out. The whole car shakes and engine
sounds very rough. But upon accelerating the power is almost normal.
The garage is Sisma Motors, the authorised dealer and workshop for
Jaguars in Malaysia.(that's where i am) They have gone through all the
checks from compression, pistons, wires, well almost everything and
couldn't find out what is wrong. They say their diagnostic computer
keeps showing the fault is with the ECU.
Well, they have kept the car for three weeks and came with the answers
above. They keep no stock of the ECU, so now they want to buy one ( I
pay if it solves the problem, but what if it doesn't; I am back to
square one) and check whether the fault is really with the ECU. As far
as they are concerned there is nothing wrong with the engine.
Maybe if i can get some questions to ask them and see what answers they
