I am considering buying this car, currently on eBay.
The seller has stated:
Here’s my story…I am a 1986 Jaguar XK-6, series iii, I am a 4 door sedan with dual fuel tanks, both tanks work and the switching valve works as well. I have a black exterior, tan leather interior, power sunroof, windows, locks, a trip computer, cruise control and a rear defogger all in tip top shape.
I crank and spark, my fuel system is functional. My A/C automatic system needs some help. My heater core has a leak, which is probably why my A/C doesn’t work.
I got hot on the way home from work during rush hour traffic. Once I cooled down in an open area I was able to finish my journey. The next day I heated up again, quicker than yesterday.
I am being sold as is. My owner doesn’t have the time to work on me right now.
Unfortunately, even with good fuel pressure, it only runs off of starting-fluid.
Overheating was traced to thermostat being stuck w/scale build-up. being stuck w/scale build-up.
Plugs don’t even show the short period of high heat; piston-tops, chamber, valves have no visible damage.
The heat must‘ve damaged Fuel-injection module under the intake manifold.
It’s located right under the manifold next to the head; a nice spot for baking cookies, but not electronics.
Any comments guys?
