jaguar coughs but doesn't purr ! - isobella greene
Having lost my Rover 827 last week (Head Gasket, say no more), I picked up a 1990 Jag XJ2.9 Auto, 11 months MOT yesterday.

It is only firing on 5 cylinders and there is a distinct air 'sucking or blowing' sound from the head.

My local garage have told me that it's not too serious but the head will have to be removed to replace a worn gasket which is allowing air to be sucked in and stopping the mid cylinder from firing.

Does this seem like a right diagnosis to you guys in the know ?

If so, can it be bodged and how ?

thanks
David
