Car: 2000 Jag XJ8 Vanden Plas
P0300, P0301, P0303, P0304 (Engine Miss Fire)
P1313 (Catlyst Efficiency)
Compression Test: (LOW Cyl 3)
CYL 4 - 165lb, CYL 1- 165lb, *(CYL 3 -115lb)* Low.
* Wrong Coolant was placed in the car for about 7 months. Then I had it flushed and filled it up with the correct Orange Colored coolant. But it must not have been flushed correctly b/c it is not Orange right now, it is more of an orange/green color. I am having it reflushed along with the wiring harness repair. The " Engine Cololant Low" light comes on and goes off. Hope the flush fixes it.
* Upper fan wiring harness wires cut by the drive belt. I am having the wires rewired right now. So that issue should be fixed.
* Restricted performance warning light is now on and the car sputters and sounds rough.
If someone could please list some of the Top 5 things that might be wrong that would be great. I really do not want to take it to a dealership and just leave it. I would like to know more from some of the great minds here on this site. I know my descripitions might be more or less vague, but as my name on here suggest.I am a noob : (
Please help me try to understand some of the issues and what might have caused them to happen. I never had any warning for the car about overheating. But then again don't rule it out. I guess it is possible that the car did not warn me of the issue. Not sure.
Thanks for your help. : ) : ) : )
