Jaguar Starter related Questions
What could be wrong with a Jaguar starter if the engine of a 2002 xk8 spins slowly despite having a fully charged battery?The engine may be cranking at a different speed due to a flooded engine, which can usually be fixed by putting a few droplets of oil in each cylinder after cleaning the dismantled spark plugs. This is most likely not due to a faulty starter. If the starter needs to be accessed, take off the passenger side engine mount and mount bracket from the engine.
Can a Jaguar starter motor cause a clicking noise in an X type 2.1 petrol automatic 2003 that does not start?First try charging the battery. Replace the battery if it is cracked at the top this will cause the negative terminal to get corroded.
Could a Jaguar starter cause a clicking sound when the key is turned but the engine does not start?There may be loose or corroded cables at the starter or battery causing this issue, which can be fixed by freeing up the starter temporarily using a hammer to tap on it from under the vehicle. A seized accessory pulley can also result in the engine not turning freely and produce the clicking sound. If none of these are the problem then replace the Jaguar starter is most likely damaged.
What could be the reason for a Jaguar starter to take up to 5 hits to the start button to actually start up?A sticking start/stop switch or a fault in the ABS unit usually causes this problem as the starter cranks only when there is brake pressure.
How can the Jaguar starter motor in a 91 xjs be removed?The vehicle should be safely raised and supported after disconnecting the battery ground cable. Then remove the right exhaust pipe in front of the over-axle pipe, followed by the catalytic convertor assembly in the right front section for accessibility. The starter leads from the solenoid are then disconnected and the starter motor can be removed by loosening the starter mounting bolts after removing the heat shield from the Jaguar starter.
Can tapping on a Jaguar starter cease to work eventually?Tapping on the starter releases a sticking solenoid which will stop working eventually and damage the starter motor, which would then require replacement. First check the following:
1. Replace the main positive lead connected to the motor if its resistance is high.
2. A duff lead can be the reason for the engine to not start.
3. The main battery cables should be tightened and the terminals cleaned.
Also check the connection of the main positive lead to the engine continuing to the Jaguar starter motor.
