Default Fuel pipe quick-disconnects

I have small hands, so luck is with me on occasions like this. Some vaseline on a plastic 5/16" coupler tool, some on my wrists, done.

I have read where people have made some sort of extension to hold the coupling tool with. Others have said they could not gain enough access without partially lowering the rear suspension.

XJate wrote about replacing his fuel pump with the tank still in the trunk, and did so without disconnecting the lines. I have not tried this approach, and have seen two cars where the fuel pipes were badly damaged in this manner. No magic from me, sorry.

My XK8 4.2 surges at constant throttle after warming up. Also, on hard acceleration, the engine hesitates, then the gearbox appears to change up a gear before eventually dropping a few coggs and accelerating away.
I have taken the car to Strastone Jaguar in Cardiff who identified a faulty torque converter without even seing the car.
I subsequently took the vehicle to Bristol Transmissions who test drove the car, identified that there was a problem, conducted a diagnostic check and charged me 115 for the privillage. They told me they couldn't do anything as the computer did not identify any problems though concluded the car was malfunctioning.. Thanks a bunch.
If anyone has had a similar problem or knows of a good mechanic who "knows his stuff" please let me know via this site or e mail me at [email protected]

Many thanks

Jon

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! brutal helped me once with a oil in the filter box by suggesting some engine restorer and different weight and it helped enough that we thought it would be a good time to sell it ,, !!!!!!!!!!!!

Lookin for Techs......most of the great techs we've had seem to have other things to attend to these days.
I will need to update status shortly to keep things as up to date as possible. If there are any new techs around who'd like to assist please step forward or maybe an existing member would like to nominate someone?

welcome bulldoze! as you can see in Jims previous post above you, we're short handed on the certified techs around here and abounding with people like myself that are barely qualified DIYers. We always LOVE LOVE LOVE our techs around these parts, we all appreciate their input and assistance, especially when the problem lies deeper than new brake rotors or a mass air flow sensor cleaning. Pace yourself, you're time is dearly needed and we won't let you forget how important you are to our group.

Do us a favor and post up a short intro in the new member area and which years and cars you feel most knowledgeable. (Only reveal only what you wish, you don't have to specify where you work, but a State would be nice, keep your identity semi-anonymous, etc if you like)

You'll be greeted appropriately, I assure you. I see you've jumped right in already. Good man!

Hi bulldoze n welcome to the site.....great to have another tech on board.
We've had some fantastic techs on site but they've burned themselves out I guess.
If you'd like to pass on your knowledge and help out it will ALWAYS be appreciated by every member I assure you. Terms like **ealers etc will not be tolerated here as they may be on other sites.
Once you've settled in maybe post an intro in the new member section to introduce yourself around.

If you ned any help, please feel free to ask ether myself, Caddie or any member.

I hope you enjoy the site

All the best

JagtechOhio is still around he's just got a wrist injury from typing all the responses

on that note if you all ever need any XJ40 parts I can't recommend him enough good prices and great quick service.

Agreed...Jagtechohio is fantastic, very helpful n knowledgable, a real asset to the forum, although I was wondering if he was burnt out / lost interest as I haven't seen him around so much these days. Probably just that thing called life getting in the way

Jim, don't forget about me. While I am not some ASE certified mechanic or jag certified mechanic, I have been making my way around cars for a long time. Wish I could get my ASE certification, but that is more dollars and time than I have at the moment. Some day.

Sorry Thermo, you are right of course. You've been helping / advising a lot of members with a lot of issues recently, especially electronics and I know its been appreciated.

Thermo has been doing handling alot of the Q&A lately, he is quite the versatile diagnostician. He just doesn't have the TECH CERTIFIED tag, perhaps we need to find another label for members like him. Just a thought.

OK, got sucked in. Been lurking awhile. Another dealership tech here. Hopefully we're not frowned upon too much. I can and would like to help as much as I can. Been working 20 years as a dealer tech, Master Jag tech, and ASE master tech, as well. Hopefully somewhere in this empty head of mine there is good information to share.
