They are struts and should not be attempted unless you have the proper spring compressors.

Without a drive i have no idea sorry but the only thing i can suggest is to check the engine mountings if its shocking but your terminology leaves a lot to be desired ,i need to know if its a lazy change or just a feeling of the engine moving .

"No Phone" in 2003 Jaguar X-Type


I do not have my manual in front of me, but certain VIN numbers do not have the bluetooth installed in the car. I have a 2003 Jaguar X-Type and I have a phone button, but my VIN number was not in the range of jaguars that came equipped with the bluetooth. You can get a phone that has bluetooth and test to see if it finds a bluetooth device (your Car Phone Device).

On the 2000 jaguar s-type, what is, Cats system


Cats was a optional extra from the factory. It is adaptive damping. It basicialy softens or stiffens the shock absorbers to your driving style.

It may seem that one of your shock absorbers has developed a internal pressure fault. A local garage with a code reader can tell you wich shock absorber to check. Would be worth checking the electrical connectors that plug into the top of the shock absorber to make sure they are not damaged.

Look's like you may need a new shock absorber

Gas filter location 2003 jaguar s-type


Hi.
The fuel filter is located behind the front left wheel.

To replace the filter you will need to take off the front left wheel and then to undo the panel behind the wheel, removing few screws. There you will find the fuel filter.

Regards.

I want to check the coolant level in the radiator on my 2003 Jaguar X-type. The reservior is empty so I want to check the radiator, but can't find the cap. Can you tell me where to look?


Behind the battery and next to the shock tower on the drivers side will be a plastic container called the expansion tank. The fluid should be visible. You can remove the cap to visually inspect it.

Suspension system 2003 X Type


That all depends on if you have the comfort or the sport suspension. The sport is a bit stiffer, and the comfort is pretty floaty. Now, repair shops will tell you that you need to replace the shocks every 50,000 miles, however they should be good for at least 100,000 miles. But, how to tell. There are 3 items to check- how much "dive" does your front end have when you brake? If it is significant, then you might be due. The opposite is true when accelerating off the line. Finally, push down on the front and back end with your hands, and if it bounces straight up, then you should still be good on your shocks.

If you have rattles from the shocks, either the mounts or the shocks themselves might be bad. You want to replace the shocks in either case.

Note, that replacing the shocks on the X Type is extremely expensive.
