I recently took myXJ 2000 to the garage after an expense which included discovering cruise control actually worked, replaced bonnet hood release (second time) and testing for leaks thought to drain battery, I was told the valves covers were leaking . $900 US if shop made repair, $ 63 for valve cover kit, right bank finished this AM. Used a 2003 U tube video to walk through the issues, seemed to work, couple of minor deviations seemed to be good counsel. Hopefully nailed it.
