finally got that one to post....I see two wires goin to it...you might want to check voltage TO this valve before you attempt to replace it~ check fuses~

might be this one too~http://www.autopartsnetwork.com/jaguar-xj8-w0133- 1890466-vapor-canister-purge-valve-assembly- genuine/avchvV5D1QZljhmv9t? utm_source=google&utm_medium=gps&utm_term=Jaguar+XJ8+Vapor+ Canister+Purge+Valve+Assembly+Genuine+W0133- 1890466&utm_campaign=google_base&gclid=CL7Q9srulbsCFSISMwod bUAA_A

Have you checked the inertia switches for the fuel rail? The inertia switch is a small black box, about the size of a cigarette pack behind the right side kick panel. You should be able to feel the top of it just behind the top edge of the panel cover. There is a round pin the rises out of the top when tripped. You just push it back down and it resets.

yes....the vent of the air/fuel mix is either absorbed into a charcoal canister or disappears into the intake~ this valve will enable the fumes to get to the canister~


simple right hand charcoal canister(next to right muffler) there is a solenoid valve with connector going to it pop the valve of and go get gas be sure to replace with new valve mike (loconnell@msn.com)
