David Lockwood, Hampshire

Jaguar X-Type

My car is leaking water behind the drivers seat and I would like to know where the drainage holes are in the car.I have replaced the filter under the windscreen wipers and it was totally dry.Where else could the leak be coming from?

Answers

Had same problem, trade leak as coming in from the drain channel to the rear of the front wheel arch. Leaves drop through by the bonnet hinge and get trapped, result is water runs into the car front foot wells and runs under the carpet. Clearing the leaves needs access behind the wheeel arch liner, or by hooking leaves clear from the gap at the bottom of the front wing TonyB from Lincolnshire

Hi Fellow S Type Lovers. My problem is that my 2001 S type stalls after ticking over for about a minute starts again no worries. Also motor will not rev over 3000revs when stationary. Can anybody help with this problem. Thanks Peter

Answers

I'm sure the engine has a limiter to stop the engine from being over revved when stationary, so would say this is normal. I also had a similar problem with stalling, turned out to be a split vacuum hose that runs behind the engine (V6) Cheers Alistair from Devon

I have a whining noise on idling from inside the car it would seem to be coming from the nearside anybody have any ideas...............Bob.

Answers

If the whine is apparent with the transmission in neutral and increases with engine speed until it is eventually drowned out with general engine noise then it could be a noisy alternator bearing or a drive belt. It could also be one of the serpentine belt tensioner or idler pulleys. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Jaguar S-Type 2006

I have a strong smell inside my Jaguar S-Type coming through my heater. I think it smells like exhaust fumes. It`s an S type XS turbo diesel 2006 model. Any suggestions as to the cause?

Answers

You may be required to change the oil separator. Has the car been serviced regularly? Rick Hanson from Staffordshire

The problem with the car will be down to the auxiliary heater unit which is located on the passenger side (UK vehicles) front just behind the bumper, nearly in line with the fog lamp, this is the exhaust outlet for the heater unit. There was a rectification for this fault of fumes entering the car by Jaguar, this was free of charge during the warranty period, however now it would be chargeable. The alleged cure was to reduce the fuel flow into the heater by fitting a restriction in line. I am sure if you ask your dealer, they should be able to provide you with a copy of the recall sheet. I am about to modify mine with a extended exhaust outlet pipe to take the fumes away from the front apron, the pipe is available from any Webasto or Eberspacher supplier or of course ebay,. It is a flexible aluminium convoluted tube which is very flexible, this can then be fitted to the very short stubby pipe under the front corner and run away from the front area to stop the problem. If your fumes are not just fumes but a lot of smoke, this is unburnt fuel, as such it is more than just poor outlet. The heater itself has a gauze wire inside, rather like a Brillo pad without soap. The fuel is sprayed onto this pad and ignited, this then forms a very good heat source from which the heat is taken and then passed into the water system via heat transfer. Obviously the heat is not in direct contact with the water. If you have excess smoke a Webasto or Eberspacher dealer could service the unit for you and replace the gauze pad and service the injector. Hope that helps someone out there. If you need to know anymore or I can help in some-way, feel free to send an email to info@mercuryarv.com Kind regards Simon Edgecombe from Kent (Mercury RV)

According to my local garage he says it is a faulty injector, which is leaking and the pressure is forcing diesel fumes back through the injector building up under the coupling and the heater is drawing it in. To fix the problem he says he will take the injector out and replace the ring which seals it and this should cure the problem what do you think? Is this feasible? Tom Masheder from Lanarkshire

HI All I started to drive my 06 plate 2.0 ltr diesel sport today, as I started to accelerate the car there was what I can only describe as a "Pop" then the car stated to run very lumpy and there was grey smoke coming from the exhaust, and an obvious loss of power. Any ideas on what this could be would be very welcome Thanks

Answers

Hi Ken, similar thing happened to me the other week. (Jag x-type 2 ltr se estate. If you open the bonnet, at the front left corner of the engine bay, just to the left of the dip stick you will see the EGR valve. Going down from this is a thick rubber tube. Ours became detached and this is the intake for the turbo, I think? Sometimes they split so need replacing, under £20 usually. Luckily with ours it had just come loose and we manged to re-secure it... Started the engine, revved it a little, thick black smoke for a few seconds then cleared and back to normal... Now grappling with an intermittent flashing glow-plug issue... Loss of power etc. So if you know how to cure this, let me know... tim from Cornwall

Hi, tyre pressure low warning has just started coming on. It alternates between front wheels and then the back wheels. All tyre pressures are good and new tyres only about 500 miles ago Have seen on the web that it may be a faulty controller. But is there a reset that can be carried out on it, before changing it? Any help welcome

Answers

I believe there may just well be a reset needed.. many of the electronic tyre pressure gauges need reset after a tyre change.. Ford's do.. so I'll bet that Jags will too.. can't tell you HOW to tho, sorry. R Evans from Caerphilly

The tyre preassure warning system is a royal pain in the @@@@. Most likely the main control module needs replacing at a cost of over £400...could be the valves at about £40 each plus fitting. I had mine deleted from the system by MGA jaguar in Derby. £ 78 and never to be a problem again. While you wait job as they have all the diagnostic equipment and know exactly what files to switch off, mine now is as though it left the factory without it fitted and when the tyres need replacing you can fit normal valves.

I have a Jaguar X-Type 2.2 diesel 5 years old. After 1 hour and half of highway driving the coil warning light began flashing on my display. There were no other warning lights but I did notice a loss of power (no turbo) when I accelerated. I turned off the engine and then started again and everything returned to normal. After 1 hour again the same problem, it happened 4 times and everytime I switched off and started again and the problem disappeared. I changed the battery a few months ago. Even if it was not cheap I suppose it’s not a high quality battery. Could it be the cause of the problem? Thanks.

I disconnected my battery to change a nearside bulb and since reconnecting the power I have not been able to reset the time on my radio. The radio did not request the radio code after power loss, but I did lose the preset stations. I have tried all the reset instructions on the internet to no avail. If I hold down the mode button it goes straight to "clock reset" and will scroll through the hours and minutes but I cannot change any of the figures either using the search buttons or entering the digits. Is there a reset facility if all else fails. Any help would be gratefully received, thanks.

Jaguar S-Type

At times my doors will lock, and other times it will not. When it locks the lights only flash once. When I attempt to lock it at other times the lights will flash twice showing me that it's not locked. I had an authorized Jaguar Dealer to check it out , and they stated they could find no problem. Would a short in power door lock actuator or switch be the problem?

Answers

I'm assuming you're using the four pad key fob. One press on the red lock secures all the doors, with a short flash of the lights. A second press on the pad gives a longer flash and puts the car into full security lock down whereby even smashing the widows won't allow the doors to be opened, and the engine can't be started by any means except the key For those without the driver's handbook, if the fob pads aren't working the same lock-down can be accomplished by using the ignition key by turning it in the door lock right, then left to lock. Unlock by a turn to the right, but you have to put the key into the ignition within15 seconds after which the alarm is activated. The passenger doors have to be unlocked by the fascia button. Prolonged holding the lock button closes all open windows, and sun roof Don't do as I did once and leave a pet loose in the car when it's locked or the motion sensors will be sounding the alarm every few minutes!

Lift the bonnet, remove the oil filler cap and then pull the plastic engine cover up and off. Then put the oil cap back on. Have a look around where the six injectors enter the engine and you could see one of them has a damp oily deposit around it. If you see this, then this is the area of the problem. Start the engine and it may show the exhaust leaking from here and making a chuffing sound. Most likely problem (but not conclusive) is a leaking injector seal. In any case it will be a leak in this area. Note, if one is leaking it may be worth replacing all six as they have all done similar miles. Ian Graham from Kent

Yes, this answer is correct as I had the same problem with my 2005 S Type 2.7D. It was a cracked injector costing an arm and a leg to replace as it was the one at the back. David from Northamptonshire

Diesel X type ? Could be a number of things, eg: 1. Fuel air ratio so possible fuel filter, air filter or dirty Maf sensor. Pretty easy and cheap to change / clean. 2. Pipe adrift or split from turbo or under airbox. (left of battery.) 3. Turbo actuator pcb board has a dry joint or damaged connection. Disconnect arm and 3 bolts. Unclip cover. Possible soldering required. 4. Turbo actuator arm has restricted travel due to soot buildup in the turbo. Variable vanes unable to move as needed, requires cleaning. consider turbo mod. Can see on youtube, drill and tap hole on side of turbo, can clean with Mr.Muscle. I have done this, it works perfectly. 5. Injector issues. dirt stuck in nozzle, irregular spray patterns, ultrasonic cleaning could work. injector damaged internaly, found with leak back test, for most people new injector required.

Jaguar S-Type

Hi all, I've got a problem with my S type 3.0. The bonnet release cable has come apart somewhere under the bonnet so it cannot be opened on the pull lever inside the car. I removed the mesh from the grill and saw the catch mechanism holding the bonnet down it was fairly easy to release, but I didn't realise there was another on the other side of the bonnet! I can see some of it but it`s covered by a small metal box around 4"x 3". How on earth can I get around this? I've tried everything and cannot think of a way around this one. Has anybody got any ideas at all? Thanks everybody.

That happened to my 2001 s type I took a wire coat hanger, bent it straight, then bent smal hook at one end, poke it through the cooler-grill and then over to the left inner side to catch the latch of the actual puller-cable of the bonnet. pull quickly and the bonnet will pop open Kieran from Hampshire

There are 2 screws one to the left of the plate and one to the right (T30 star key needed if I remember correctly) holding the metal plate on. Remove those and the plate comes off to reveal the main catch. Use a screwdriver or similar to release. Colin from Bedfordshire
