Customer Question
I want to see...

I want to see diagram of the engine of a 1996 Jaguar XJ6.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the Jaguar? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

I think my Steering Fluid is low but not certain of proper dip stick for Steering Fluid. In addition, I'm wondering IF the Steering Fluid Manufacturuer matters?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XJ6 yourself? What have you tried so far?

175,000 miles. automaic trans.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?

No. However, I'm not sure IF this dipstick is the Stering Fluid OR Tranmissin Fluid, etc.???

Good afternoon, my name is ***** ***** ill be helping you, so sorry to hear about the issues here on the Jaguar. The power steering reservoir looks like the diagram attached down below. There is only a dipstick tube with a cap on this model and not a dipstick for the transmission. The fluid level is checked by removing the dipstick tube cap and inserting a special tool which is a long dipstick, and after the level is confirmed good then the dipstick is removed and a new cap in installed on the tube to seal it again. The power steering circuit calls for Dexron III automatic transmission fluid to work correctly.

I have two XJ12, one 95 one 96. each has an issue. 95 ignition key turns but no crank. I can fire car by putting earth to requisite relay position under hood, left hand bank of relays. cars condition is almost as though I had RF key which of course I don't. but as with a car with rf key, I have no indicators etc. Today I pulled the centre console, cannot find any broken wires. the little switch next to the gearshift with 2 wires seems to have no power on either side, but not sure if this is a ground circuit. Put ground to one of relays, not sure which but then heard keylock under dash operate as did that relay. This car, recent purchase, was manually shifted out of park, using correct steps as no battery to be flatbedded. Flatbed driver did move gearshift from neutral back to park with no problem. Gearshift will move through full range without the key in the ignition. Wondering if I have problem with bpm? or elsewhere. I know you answered in the past a similar problem on a same age xj6 but I believe my bpm is different from the xj6 one and hence terminal positions for testing may be different. … read more
