Re: 6.0 extra air valve EBC1198

Here we go, the new aav is in and the car idles correctly for a change both cold and warm. No long joy though as I took the car for a spin last weekend, and suddenly had a loss of power. It does not rev over 3500 rpm and has a strange whining sound. My local mechanic says the sound comes from the ex...

Re: 6.0 extra air valve EBC1198

The AAV on my car has stopped working correctly causing the engine to run at low revs, and also throwing a check engine fault. My AAV has been taken apart previously and repaired, but i believe it has stopped working again. SNG had the part as special item on order for quiete some time now meaning a...

Re: Fishtank swap light logic control module

Thanks for the info, so no quick fix and keeping the old modules. As it is as project for the future, need to see how I go about this.

Fishtank swap light logic control module

Good evening, I managed to get this week a set of quads headlights for my XJ81 for a good price. Now the things have arrived including the light logic control modules. Checking the light logic modules I have in my daimler I noticed they were plastic and that the quads are made of aluminium. Before a...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

Question: Is the idea of loosing weight going to the direction to build a racer? With 400 BHP and less weight that sounds very much like the direction. Clearly if you get rid of the stock seats and whatever unncesssary trim there is around the car you can lighten the 40. Is the goal to keep the char...

Re: SLS Rebuild?

Could not agree more. On my DD6 SlS got deactivated a long time ago and even after importing the car from France where an extended technical check takes place no one noticed that the system was disabled. I just fitted new shocks on the rear and was able to to have a look at the height level sensor w...

Fuel Pump removal XJ81 or late models 93/94

I thought I would share with the forum a little write up on how to remove the fuel pump(s) on the late 40 models without removing the fuel lines and removing the tank from the boot. Get the tools ready! I used a dremel and a cutting knife as main tools to access the fuel pump as well as a siphon and...

Re: High mileage club

True what you are writing Naki, but most people will only look at the fuel consumption and maybe repairs rather than the total cost of ownership. Another point is technology. Cars nowadays (be that for better or worse) are equiped with all kinds of assistants that actually make motoring safer and re...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

A very cool project that you are executing (attempting would suggest lack of skill) here. Please keep on posting pics of the conversion and the steps, it looks like this is going to be a great story. The 400BHP with a 335 engine will require some serious modifcations, right? I had a 2014 335 that I ...

Re: High mileage club

I supppose that running today a XJ40 (6 or 12 cylinder) for long distances is simply not economic. In the US you still have cheap fuel and Americans are used to their gas guzzlers. If I compare the consumption of my 6 cylinder (ca. 12,5l/100km) and the V12 (15l/100km) Jag and the Merc of my wife (6,...
