First off, thank you for replying to my question, it was very helpful. I'm a bit confused, according to autozone's repair guide, it said to remove drive shaft, remove transfer case, then you could reach the oil pan gasket. So do I have to indeed remove the transfer case or can that stay on? Also which is the "sump"?

Harold, According to the 2002 Ford Focus Owner manual,
With engine oil filter change : 2.0 liter SPI engine takes ( 3.78 liters / 4.0 U.S. quarts of 5W-20 )
2.0 liter Zetec engine takes ( 4.25 liters / 4.5 U.S. quarts of 5W-20 )

Hello your Dealer is going right by the book on labour now a day's garages are by law aloud to go by the book quote to do the job the book is about 7-8 hours but i have seen the job completed in 6.5 hours by someone who has allot of experience and has done several of them.So all in all they are aloud to go by the book and yes your quote is pretty much accurate and yes it is a big job hoist needed.
jag-you-are would prefer that you take your car to one of their service centers!! probably has an internal filter element that needs special equip. to access and change out.lot of high end cars have that type of filter now. my brothers mercedes mid-1990s doesn't even have a tranny dip-stick! need special tools to check level! hard to be a 'shade-tree' mechanic anymore! good luck!
labor rate is the biggest factor, if you live around San Francsico area the labor rate is $185.00 per hour to fix that. I know the engine would need to come out, so its possible to have a $2,000.00 labor cost.
Use 10w30 oil. The heavy oil 10w40 will cause the pinging due to the hydraulic cam advance oil valve control. It is not uncommon for these motors to use oil between changes according to the isuzu rep. Have you changed the pcv valve? How much oil is it using? reply
A quick call to any jag dealer should give you specifics (or your owners manual) My personal recomendation is a synthetic 20w/50. Synthetics usually cover a wider range than indicated on the label, and will out perform any conventional lubricant.(regardless of brand) Therefore 20w/50 will give you all the protection you need against wear and will still retain a low pour point in temperature extremes.
I have done a bit of research, your s type may not have the bluetooth fitted, here is a good site for any questions for your jaguar. http://forums.roadfly.com/forums/jaguar/jaguar_s_type/6924688-1.html
The link is a person who wants to add bluetooth to his jag, follow the thread it sounds like an expensive option$1500. Your phone maybe compatible bit only if you have the option fitted.
hope this helps
Check the threads on the new sender/switch. They should be slightly tapered. Some of the less expensive replacement parts have straight threads, try a new part from the Honda dealer. The grey/white stuff is teflon type pipe sealant, this is the correct material to use on the sender threads. Clean the threads in the block very well first.
