SOURCE: Rear window on driver's side slides down

I've had this problem and I believe its a common problem with S types. There is a white plastic slider that wraps around a metal strut and moves up and down as the window opens and closes. The problem is that the plastic slider breaks if the car door is slammed when the window is half way down, When this occurs the slider breaks free and the wire that pulls it up and down wraps itself around the motor and jamms everything up. The fix is to replace the window regulator as a complete unit. This fairly straight forward and worth the effort as you most likely will be replacing the other regulators if you keep the car for a while. Buy the regulator either from Jag dealer or OEM part which is approx 1/2 the cost (I found mine on ebay!). Make sure your get the correct unit, left, right, front and rear are different. Take off the door panel, its all clips except you need to unscrew the two scews under the rubber insert in the door pocket first. After you have removed the panel remove the black plastic cover as well. You need to detach the glass window from the regulator, This is done by punching out the brass insert in the middle of the plastic plug that is pushed through a hole in the glass. Be careful, if you hit it too hard you can break the glass, I ended up drilling it out as this was easier. Once you have the plastic plug out the glass is detached and you can remove the regulator. This is just a few screws, the only tricky part is to get the angle right to pull it out the door frame. Installation of the regulator is just the reverse. Good luck.

No, the seals will not cure themselves, it will continue to leak until it is repaired.
because the transmission was not worked for more than a year, the seals dry up, when you start the engine the dry seals can rip or wear.

Hello. Actually you will have a lot better results if you go to one of your local discount parts houses, and buy a HAYNES SERVICE MANUAL. They sell them for your make and model for about $20.00, You will not have to use the printer ink, paper, or even have to find something to put the papers in. These manua;ls are fairly comprehensive, and easy to understand. Thank you for trusting to help get you going.

Keep in mind that one or more conditions as low coolant level, defective cooling fan or fan control (overheats at idle), plugged radiator, stuck thermstat (overheats all the time) could cause to overheating.

the 12 cyl. engine is a hot-running engine to begin with, so if you've changed thermostats, did you install one that opens at a lower temperature?(that depends on your local climate too, but your thermostat may be stuck-closed, or opening at a higher temp than desired). Here's a link to good start: test_thermostat

"Never run an engine without a thermostat because the thermostat works as a system flow regulator as well. What this means is the thermostat has a specific opening that regulates the flow through the cooling system. If the coolant is allowed to flow to quickly through the radiator the coolant will not have time to transfer the heat it has absorbed. This will cause the engine to overheat"

I recently had to have the transmission rebuilt. When the mechanic was finishing up he told me that it needed a TCM as well. After that it still ran rough, shaking and all. My check engine light has been...

A 2002 is not an "older car".
You should easily be able to get 15 years out of any decent car.

But the PCM and TCM are not likely bad.

First start with a simple tuneup, with plugs, wires, etc.
Then you try diagnostics on the fuel injection, such as temp, O2, and air mass sensors, as well as filter, fuel pressure, etc.
Then check things like ERG valve, fuel vapor purge valve, etc.

The last thing you do is give up and buy new control modules.

Jag x type 2.0Turbo diesel, 2005

Same problem on mine was a block fuel filter (quite common). About £70 fitted by main dealer. I'd stay away from whoever told you the above and get a second opinion!

I have the same problem on my 1998 XK8

Seek the website for Dan Jensen's article on repairing the ABS Electronic control board (seems a solder joint becomes intermittent). This is a common trouble in XK8s... mine needed to be replaced recently too....

What does code P1587 mean?

Hi there;
Your looking for the definition of code P1587 on you 2000 Jag S-type.
Are you ready for this? It has a long name.

P1587 :PCM to throttle actuator control module throttle command redundancy circuit malfunction.

Which means the information the engine control computer received from the throttle controller does not "compute". Unfortunately the dealer doesn't provide any repair information & if this code is constant it will need to be repaired by your local Jaguar dealer.

Heater valve

It takes roughly 2 1/2 to 3 hours to replace the heater valve, it is a pain to get access to the 5 heater hose clamps. A good mechanic can replace is in 1 1/2 to 2 hours but a shop is still going to charge you the 2 1/2 to 3
