Jag won't start after pumping tank empty three times, and put in new gas and plugs

Asked by Aug 25, 2013 at 08:21 PM about the 1998 Jaguar XJ-Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Thank you for the help. The new unexpected problem is there is no spark to the plugs. I pulled #1 and checked by turning over engine. I checked the engine fuse box under the hood. All fuses are good. I am surprised as the car was running till the gas hit the engine. The gas is now immaculate and pumping well with pressure. The engine ran great till that point. I pumped the tank dry 3 times before getting quality gas. Is there something that would shut the ignition system down if no fuel was getting into the system? If not what process to check going backwards from the plugs Thank you. Michael

...okay, admittedly there is NO spark...one could check the ignition switch to see if it works....an ignition relay if equipped (will go lookin' in a minute) and perhaps a ballast resistor...maybe a fuse...am going to have to study your electrical diagram to give an informed assessment~

...okay here's a module or two...before you go replacing this please get a NEW battery as the tin/antimony alloy batteries will only go five years before the stop accepting a charge....find the end of the 1/0awg Battery cable that attaches to chassis ground and wirebrush this connection point till 300 cold cranking amps can get through~
