  1. Your data on for 1985 XJS does not match what the manufacturer recommended. For warm weather a SAE 50 oil is recommended, the cooler the weather the lighter the oil down to a 10 W 30 for winter use. The oil pressure on a v12 should not go below 50 lbs.

    1. Hello Carlo, at first I want to thank you for your comment. My data is for Jaguar made between 1991 and 1994 not for your 1985.

    2. Hi Carlo,

      That was early in the days of multi viscosity oils and Jaguar tends to think old school, about 10 years behind as often as not. I keep my car in a garage and do not drive much in the Kansas winter (salt) so use 20-50 to good effect. As far as pressure goes, I have about 50 pounds when cold or at speed. Only about 15 at slow idle when fully warm. And that’s fine by Jaguar standards. Remember, they are the ones that state in the manual that it is normal for the oil pressure light to flash at you when warm and turning sharply!

  2. Hello, i need your help on finding the right oil for a Jaguar XJ12 5350cc from 1981 automatic, i am having difficulties on finding the ammount of engine oil, collant, brake fluid , power steering and transmission oil because i want an oveall refresh on all the fluids.

    Looking forward on your answer
    Thank You
