XJ-6 SLIGHT SHAKING NOISE IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE

1986 Jaguar XJ6 • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 200,000 miles

1986 Jaguar XJ-6 mileage: 200,000. My 1986 Jaguar XJ-6 is quite possibly the best car I have ever owned. I'm now approaching 200,000 miles and the engine shows no signs of giving up. Outside of a new thermostat and regular preventive maintenance, it takes little more than gas money from my wallet. The problem I have recently encountered is a slight shaking noise in the front passenger side when accelerating hard from a dead stop. The vehicle does weigh more than 5000 lbs, only makes this sound below 8-10 mph, and then goes away as speed increases.

Your car is equipped with a two-piece drive shaft. The center support for the middle of the drive shaft or possibly one of the U-joints on the drive shaft may have failed.
