You don't say if it is petrol or diesel?
Unfortunately there's a severe case of premature engine death going around. It only effects the diesels but we have seen both top end (timing chain) and bottom end (crank) problems. The 2.0 diesel ingenium has been revised several times. Post 2019 engines might be sorted but too early to tell. In fairness, they usually have more miles on than yours.

I hope it turns out to be something benign but your symptom's fit a number of unfortunate stories related here.
First job, establish if the engine turns over by hand ok. Report back.

Hi all,

Thanks for all the help so far. Cars a diesel. Just a quick update.

This is unfortunately turning into worst case scenario now. Car has been seen by electric specialist (favour) and mechanic. Both can find nothing. Mechanic admittedly can’t go too far without taking off casings etc. However he thinks there would have been a loud bang of it was engine/crank related and neither my wife or I heard anything. Only thing flagging up on diagnostics is an airbag crash sensor but neither thinks that’s the problem and don’t want to replace that to be none the wiser.

Spoke to a couple of specialists. One flat out refuses to touch this model/engine. Says it’s the worst they’ve ever produced and he’s wiped his hands of it. Going to speak to the other again now it’s had further checks but I don’t think he’s overly keen either. There’s seems to be a lot of times they fix one issue with this type and it’s actually just another.

Checked it out with Jag and they can’t get it in to the dealer until late November. Looking close to £200 an hour to diagnose too…

Looks like I’ll be paying this Jag off while driving a bicycle for a few years. 🤣 Always dreamt of owning one growing up (weirdly ever since the F1 days) but this will be my first and last.

Thanks for all the help so far, I’ll post the end results of what happens in case someone else gets caught.

Might just be worth trying another sensor? Shouldn't take a mechanic long to swap it?

I will add that when the engines fail, they do not go with a bang, they go with a whimper. Being on the receiving end of one of these bags of poo, I can say that mine went quietly, lost power, minor clatter of starved diesel injectors, then cut-out. Hopefully it may be just a sensor, but be prepared for total engine failure. My local Jag dealer has a capped £150 investigation fee, and they took 3 days to tell me the engine was dead. Admittedly yours does seem low mileage for the type of failures that are occurring, but with the Diesel Ingenium anything can happen...

I'm not sure that is that low a mileage for the engine failure, especially as the car is 5 years old.
