#2086 of 2806 No oil pressure when RPMs are below 2000
Apr 03, 2005 (6:58 pm)
Hello, I am new to this forum but am in dire need of help. I own a 1993 Jaguar XJ6 and when my RPMs are low (idle) my oil pressure gauge drops down to "0" and and the low oil pressure light on the dash lights up. However, when I rev the engine to above 20 grand, it goes right back up to where it should be "4". I checked the oil and there is definantly the right amount of oil in the car. The engine sounds pretty good but don't want to drive it with an oil problem and then cause a much worse problem. Thank you very much.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

are you revving the engine to 20 grand or 2 grand???...20 garnd rpm seems a little fast for a six cylinder...

Is she knocking or tiicking or rattling at all at any time? Cause, you likely just have a bad sending unit. BUT - you could have a bad pump too...... If you hear any strange noises at all, quit revving the motor and call the Dr right away.

Has your new Jaguar XJ8 been reliable so far?
#2090 of 2806 XJ8 ... reliable so far?
Apr 15, 2005 (12:42 pm)
Definitely. 16 months, 27,000 miles plus on an 04 XJ8, ebony and warm charcoal. On delivery, had a couple of cosmetic issues. Both minor and fixed promptly under warranty. Had a rattle coming from the rear shelf at about 10,000 miles. Turned out to be the speaker grill. Replaced under warranty. Only other problem was a bad relay preventing the wipers from working at 26,000 miles. Warranty again. (In my younger days, I used to replace relays in my cars, along with fuses, spark plugs, oil filters, ... Ah those were the days.)
So, nothing major so far. Two problems in almost 30,000 miles, both minor. I love the car.

I had a very similar problem on my 1992 xj6....it required a new oil gauge relay switch....cost me $500 to fix because the old relay was frozen...wish I had a toyota!
#2092 of 2806 BRAND NEW XJ super 8 falling apart at the seams.

Hi, I have a brand new XJ SUPER 8 that has welds on the B+C pillars coming apart. Has anyone else experienced these issues? Need to compare notes.
Car has been taken apart to "try " and chemical weld it together !
A nightmare of a situation......Rusnak trying very hard, but having to follow Jaguar USA guidelines...very unresponsive to our needs. Roof / pillar welds are spliting apart and they are saying "its OK" , we'll glue it back together !

I've never heard of a single new Jaguar XJ with those problems.
Was the car damaged before you took delivery?
The new Jaguar XJ has few welds.

Yes...it has "glue type chemical welds that hold many of the body and structure frame parts together.

Aluminum underbody components are fastened together with aerospace-grade epoxy adhesives and some 3,200 self-piercing rivets to create the new XJ's chassis.
check "The New Aluminum Jaguars" thread for information on how the XJ's aluminum chassis is assembled."
