The 2004-2009 Jaguar XJ8 and XJR were the first and last Jaguars with four-corner air ride suspension.
Jaguar has been using the same suspension design on the XJ, XK and XF/S-Type platforms. The suspension is very similar to those found on Mercedes-Benz and even Tesla models. Most of the load-bearing components are made of aluminum and have hydraulic bushings in strategic locations. When the suspension is working right, it delivers a great
When a guide and tensioner fail, it induces timing chain slap that causes the chain to jump on the sprockets.
This engine is unique due to the high-pressure fuel pumps driven by the crankshaft using a chain that turns the oil pump.
Make sure you have the vehicle identification number ready when ordering parts.
If the battery supply to the vehicle is disconnected for any reason, the Chassis Control Module may not power-up correctly.
A humming noise may be evident from the engine when the engine is idling. This may be caused by dust or water ingress to the accessory drive belt idler pulley bearing. The idler pulley bracket assembly (C2D51367) must be replaced as a complete assembly and must not be dismantled to a lower level.
The vehicle features Tenneco’s passive front and rear dampers and coil and air spring suspension modules.
Tenneco’s CVSAe dampers are integrated in the Jaguar Land Rover Adaptive dynamic system, which senses road and driving conditions in real-time, independently adjusting each damper to provide a more comfortable and controlled driving experience.
The estimated value for these programs total more than £300 million (approximately $370 million USD).
ACEA standards are based on testing developed by the European Engine Lubricants Quality Management System (EELQMS). Think of ACEA as the SAE of Europe and EELQMS as the API/ILSAC in the U.S.
