Welcome to the forum Victoria Wuttke,

The VIN SAJ DKA ND3 CH85 4509 decodes as follows:

SAJD: World Manufacturing Identifier = Daimler
K: Model Range = Vanden Plas
A: Class = Base Line
N: Body variant = 4 door saloon, 4 seat, LWB
D: Engine variant = 4.0 litre
3: Transmission and Steering = Auto, RHD
C: Model Year = (? should be W for 1998)
H: Emission Control System = Emission C
854509: Production Serial Number

You are therefore looking for an AJ-V8 Normally Aspirated (not Supercharged) 4.0 litre engine.

I think it will be difficult to find a replacement engine in Switzerland as your Daimler V8 is likely to be a very rare car there. Although it uses the same engine as the Jaguar X308, that will not make the search much easier.

There are specialist Jaguar breakers in the UK who will almost certainly have engines available. I know that Eurojag (JaguarŪ Parts and JaguarŪ Spares from Eurojag - Eurojag Limited) at Darlington in the north east of England do ship large Jaguar parts such as engines and transmissions around the World.
