Having problems with your 1998 Jaguar XJ8L ?

My 2000 Jaguar S Type has the check engine light on, it flashes when I drive on the highway, and when I shut the car off it takes a long time to cool down. Also I put antifreeze in the car yesterday and today I opened up the hood and the antifreeze was gone. I went to have the code read and it said I have a misfire on cylinder 6 that is the issue. How do I fix this and not spend a lot of $?

Answers :

Missfire is usually cause by a bad spark plug or plug wire.
Sometimes can be cause by bad or leak injector.

For coolant, you usually have to fill the system twice when filling. It fills once then while you burp the radiator hose and car is still running, it will slowly drain all fluid from radiator to engine block, when this happens, you then refill the radiator once again and it will be at the proper level.

Check for leaks. Check exhaust too see if you have very white smoke and check oil to see if there is antifreeze in it because this can mean a gasket leak, and that may also be why your cylinder is missing
