Sam welcome to the forums. This is where you would post you introduction, something to the effect of:

Hi I am Sam, I am a Jaguar enthusiast. I am glad I came across this site in my search for knowledge, etc....... I am glad to be here...etc... again......

For help on your 1998 XJ8, there is a section within this forum to ask technical questions about your vehicle specifically.

Again welcome to the forum!
Happy Wrenching
