    You can buy Arnott aftermarket replacements for £350 ish but they don't have the CATS adaptive damping so if you're just changing the one you might get some very odd behaviour when the system...

    Thread has been quiet a long time, but just wanted to say that I enjoyed watching it and that really was a big performance improvement for a 4 litre XJ6. As you say I expect a lot of it was down to...

    It's about as quiet as diesels get. There is a balance between refinement/silence and economy with the calibration of diesel engines and Jaguar leaned towards refinement at the expense of economy...

    Those late ones look so much neater than the old versions without that cover!

    Beyond cooling there are no real weaknesses with the 6 litre Ford engine and 4l80E gearbox, and the X300 is easily the...

    I think the V8 S/C is closer to 5 secs to 60 than 6?

    I had that diesel engine in the S-Type and it was very refined but always felt at least 40bhp underpowered and the real world economy was...

    I agree with Craig about the X350. It's hard to believe that just 7 years separate the AJ16 powered X300 and my X350.

    I've attached the economy figures for the X350. There is almost no point in...

    P01010A MAF Error

    HI All. I have this P01010 code coming up with monotonous regularity on my 2003 4.2 XJ8, relating to the MAF reading being out of range. I've checked the inlet for leaks and cannot see any, and...

    V8 Drive belt tensioner

    I'm looking to change the aux belt, tensioner, and pulley on my 150k car. My VIN is G23913. I can find the belt and pulley but apparently the tensioner up to VIN G26598 is C2S11662 and no longer...

    There were spec changes from year to year as well. I have a 2003 brochure and there was no Sovereign that year, in the '04 Jag-Lovers brochure it seems they changed the SE spec to put some clear...

    Congratulations, they are absolutely fantastic cars and the V12 is thoroughly sorted (only took 25 years). I covered 100k in 2 years in my 1995 SWB, and aside from bushes and consumables it was rock...

    I second that recommendation. I used the Draper equivalent and even with it some were fiddly.

  14. Cheap(er) aux coolant pump replacement

    Thought I'd just drop this here for anyone who needs to do the same job in future. My 2003 XJ8 was suffering from a difference in heater temperature from the RH and LH sides of the cabin. As I...

    I have had very, very, very bad experience of a Jaguar "specialist" in Cardiff. Changing brake pads on X-Type specialist, maybe. Absurd bill for a nonsense diagnosis that I refused to pay too.

    It may well be related to the ECATS adaptive damping rather than the air spring system. I'd get a Jaguar or iCarSoft reader on it and find out what it is in any case. Nothing related to the...

    The air suspension serves a very good purpose. Have you seen how something like a Focus will be dragging it's arse along the road when it's 5 up with a boot full of stuff? Jaguars rational was that...

    Enjoyed that video, thanks for sharing. These cars are blinding value now but I think you beat my recent bargain with a £2700 XJR.

    I have read in a few places that the Arnott struts lack the 'CATS' adaptable damping function? If this is the case I'd go for a remanufactured OEM strut from Airdominance, or cough up for a...

    150k miles with no bolster wear here. Doesn't feel any more plastic-y than the non autolux leather on an X300 either.

    As a serial owner of various X300 models I've been extremely impressed with the quality of my recent X350 acquisition. It's hard to believe that only 7 years separates my last X300 (1996) and my...

    Can these iCarSoft devices back off the EPB for a rear pad change, and can they reset transmission adaptations? They seem pretty good value if they can!

    I'm aware there is the coolant operated extra air valve feeding from the LH airbox into the LH manifold, but there seemed to be a fair imbalance even once it was warmed up?

    1992 XJR-S V12 airflow imbalance

    Question concerns a 1992 Jaguar XJR-S 6.0 V12.

    I have just changed a coolant hose and was standing around waiting for the car to warm up at idle. I noticed that at idle the airflow to the LH...
