I had a 1988 sovereign for twenty years ... traded it for a near new xj6.
Guess that is a kind of endorsment. Lovely car that gave me great joy and a few minor headaches. It was still going fine at 200,000 klms and apart from oil leaks from various point and occasional sensor problems it was just great. I still miss it although I dont have as much oil on the garage floor these days.
Probably not a help to you as I am no mechanic just a fan of that period and got a good one!

Don't forget to check the original post date, this is an oldie from 2006. I guess there's not a lot of threads in this section, and going through the pages of older threads takes you back pretty quick!

Nice to hear some XJ40 appreciation, though. A lot of people aren't too fond of them. I think they did a decent job with the mechanicals. Looks maybe could have been better, but those who own them fall in love it seems.
