  1. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi All, My first day owning a Jag is proving rather stressful.. Having just bought my 2006 X type 2.5 manual, I'm now worried about potential problems. The main one is that pulling away in 1st or 2nd, or changing between these gears, I am getting a knock or jerk from the engine. The dealer...
  2. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    Hi guys, I just recently bought a 2001 XKR. I love the car, but I there is something strange when driving the car with a cold engine. In the first minutes of most drives I have to really push the gas pedal and rev up the engine (to over 3000 rpm) to even get the car to get to move at green...
  3. XJ (X350, X358) Aluminium Body 2003 - 2009
    Hi all wonder if any other forum members have encountered the same issue, that is, when the engine is cold the car starts on the button however once the engine has warmed up say after driving for a few miles and then parked say for 30/60min then when starting the car it does not turn over unless...
  4. XE (X760) 2015 - Present
    Hi there! Bit of background - I've owned my Jaguar XE Portfolio 2.0 2015 for 3 months, bought privately secondhand. After taking it to 3 mechanics, now at a specialist, he's said the coolant has been leaking into the cylinders and I'll need a new engine costing £8-9k which I can't afford. My...
  5. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi Gang. Here's a quick video of my Euro 4 diesel engine after over 200k miles of how the engine responds to the accelerator when stationary. The rev counter looks a bit slow to drop back compare to the engine sounds, and don't worry about the clonking, that's the accelerator pedal. Still a...

    Hello sorry if this is a repeated subject, my turbo has gone and it has taken my Engine with it unfortunately, could anyone tell me if the 2013 model has 1 or 2 turbos?
  7. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    Hi All So, I believe one of the vacuum pipes in my X351 3.0D split in half - the broken pipe on the left of the picture should be connected to the rubber bit on the right (top of the engine, left side). It seems that no one in the whole country of Great Britain has this part (although I don't...
  8. Mk1, Mk2 and S Type (1960's version)
    Hi all, While I'm doing yet another engine upgrade for my Mark 2 I have been wondering about the efficacy (ie will it break if the car is driven hard?) and value (for money and for engine performance) of fitting a harmonic crankshaft damper. I'd normally think it was a serious amount of money...
  9. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi guys, I've been trying to sort out my high pressure fuel pump. When I got to the final stages I noticed that the engine itself seems to be leaning to the left as you look at it, meaning I couldn't remove the engine mount for love nor money (made some very manly squealing noises whilst trying...
  10. The Playground
    Hey gang I don't use smileys on the forum. I like the mystique. I use them at work, well, at most everything gets 'slightly smiling'. I look through the imogies and there is nothing other than 'thumbs up', and I have a 'headbanging guitarist' I use when I'm impressed, but other than that they...

  18. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    I noticed this problem last service and failed to cure it then. On the Right hand side ( diesel) of the engine cover to the back,there seems a foul with the Wiring loom. It's cutting through with vibration of the engine, I filed off the plastic and tried to move the loom away and covered it in...
  19. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Had a small bit of work done at my local garage on the engine earlier in the week. Went to check oil levels etc today ahead of a long trip to find they'd left the engine cover off! I'm hoping and assuming this is merely a cosmetic item, and that I can safely drive without it on for the time...
