    These engines are wickedly expensive. I don't need one, but I have some thoughts about when I do. Assuming you could accomodate the motor mounts and front belt, could you just build out a Chev or Ford 5.0 to replace it?

    About a week ago I started noticing a metal clanking/grinding noise that used to only happen after the vehicle was sitting overnight. Now it seems to happen anytime the vehicle has sat for a couple of hours. It is definitely coming from the engine bay but I am not sure where. I saw on thread...

    After getting off the phone with a customer service representative at British Atlantic, he reminded me that the 4.4L Jaguar engines were also used in some Ford models. After reading the Wikipedia article on the AJ-V8 engine, I see that the same engine was also used in the Lincoln LS, as well as...

    I just replaced my spark plugs and only had a 75ml (3/8") drive and 150ml drive which removed all bar one spark plug. The back right hand side requires a 125ml drive.

    I have just change my plugs and noticed there was a little oil around the top of one plug so its time to look at the seals. I can see posts where the cam seal gaskets should be replaced but they are for earlier models with the BMW engines mines is the Ford Jag engine naturally aspirated and its...

    I am just trying to change my spark plugs and trying to remove the plastic cover over the coils but alas no luck. On other models I have seen they have a couple of screws that undo and free the panels but there are no visible screws just a smooth plastic cover. I dont want to pull it too hard...

    I am about to replace my coolant temperature sensor but I cannot find it. My Manual does not show where it is located or how to replace..........I have looked all over the front of the engine and all over the hoses but cannot see it. There is something tucked in near the throttle body but not...

    So I drove my 06 L322 SC (365,000km) to the corner store a few days ago. 10 minute drive. Ran good as always. Shut it off and went inside for 2 minutes. When I started it to leave, a HUGE amount of smoke came out the exhaust, enough that it made a pretty big cloud and took a minute to...

    Hi, I'm hoping to get some advice. I have newly bought a 2006 Range Rover, 4.4L Jaguar V8, with the 6 speed automatic (ZF6HP26?). 62k miles. Later engine and gearbox but pre-facelift dashboard, manual handbrake, etc. My first Land Rover product, I was really impressed by it... I've done...
  11. Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a problem with the first start of the day, the engine hesitates for the first 1-2 seconds and sometimes drops rvs down a couple of hundred RPM then kicks up to about 1500 rpm. Sometimes it will blow white smoke when it really hesitates. Once the car has been started for even just a minute...

    Hey, Leaking oil on the passenger side of my engine (same side as PCV) and quick inspection looks like it's coming from the valve cover gasket where it meets the timing chain cover. Is this the most likely place the AJV8 leaks oil? If one is leaking, should I change both while I'm at it...

    Will a jaguar ajv8 engine fit into a 2006 Range Rover. My motor is bad in my Range Rover and it would be cheaper to buy a jaguar motor than a Range Rover engine.

    Hello, I did try googling, but I couldn't find similar case. It is a second winter I experience very weird behavior on warm up. It was a same last year, then nothing during summer, so I guess it must be related to temperatures outside. So when I start up completely cold engine, just after...

    I haven't been able to find much information about timing chains on the 4.4 AJV8 Jag engines. There seem to be a plethura of posts on the BMW 4.4 powerplant and 2010+ models, relating to timing chains and failures. What is the consensus on the 4.4 Jag engine for the service interval for the...

    basics - 180k mi, heard some odd bearing noise from the engine bay in recent days, then one day the battery light came on. Didn't do much troubleshooting; bat light generally means you're not charging the battery. Didn't have to drive it far in that state, so it didn't die or anything like...

    Anyone taken the plunge and reflashed their dog HSE? This company is suggesting they can add 26hp and 30NM of TQ with a reflash from the UK. I am wondering if anyone in the US has ever tried this on their AJ. Now that I have big tires, i need all the performance/efficiency I can get...

    Hey! im looking to replace the engine in my 2010 Range Rover automatic 5.0. I searched a bit through the internet and saw that ford made a 5.0 v8 engine for jaguar and range rover that would fit. I just want to now if this is actually possible to replace my range rovers engine with a Jaguar XJ's...

    Hello, I have an '06 RR 4.2L Supercharged. The AC went out, figured it was the compressor. Flushed the system put a new compressor, condenser, drier in, evacuated the system and added the 700gm or R134a. When the AC switches on the High side doesn't move much - around 115psi. The low side...
