          Nikasil was out by 2002. In the 60/70/80/90's the Xj's were ALL 6 or 12 cylinders. Not 8. Google is your friend.

                          The way I see it, a cheaper car just means you have more money left to fix it up right.

                                    Welp. Everybody talking about the dropping value of those luxury cars. Lets just say that... A Jag with that kind of mileage would cost around 10k here in Finland, no matter the dings and dents and a slight vibration from the wheel bearing...

                                        When I was a kid in the ‘70s and ‘80s, I would see the old XJ series drive by here in eastern Massachusetts, and I would stop what I was doing every time just to watch it pass. They simply screamed dignity to me, even if I didn’t know how to define it back then. I’ve been an admirer of them for my whole life, so I’m always going to tend toward saving one. If you can get one running well and reliably for less than $1500.00, I see absolutely no reason not to.

                                                You may be thinking of Jaguars of the 70's and 80's with the Lucas electronics issues. Ford totally overhauled Jags electronics in the 90's so they were at least as reliable as BMWs or MBs of the time. You were spot on with the plastic tensioners and nikasil. But if you upgrade to metal tensioners and since nikasil eating sulfur gas was eliminated in the US in the early 2000s these can power on well past 200K. I'm guessing at 252K transmission drum has been sorted too, as I understand it this wasn't as much of an issue in the Mercedes 5G found in the XJR.

                                                You can still get cheap XJ8s that are smoother than 95% of the cars on the road today and surprisingly fast XJRs. I've owned several and the only electronics issue I've had is the ABS/no traction which is just a bad solder in the ABS control module, a few hours to fix. These cars are a steal.

By 2001 the nikasil cylinder liners were replaced with steel liners and by 2002 all of the plastic timing chain tensioners and guides were replaced with the metal units. The later x308s (2001-2003) were very reliable cars as long as the transmission was serviced properly.

                                                                      • Petros Aguilar

Many nikasil engines are still running to this day. It's just sad that bad owners neglect to replace the timing gear and end up ruining the engines.

                                                                    • Keith Rodgers
