Question about Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

My Jaguar s type swing on the road

Something is very bad on my S Type, when you give it the gas starts to swing the way and move very unstable. Walk like forklift, and go to one side. You can not drive fast because you can not control. Before this happened was serviceable, changed everything underneath, and recycles all Liners. So maybe the mechanic do something wrong. Please help me about this if someone is known about such things I will appreciate, thanks. P.S Sorry for my English but I hope to understand me Regards,

Sounds like the rag joint in the steering shaft has come apart. A loss of control hazard exist, do not drive until you check steering shaft joint connections at firewall and rack and pinion unit as well as tie rod ends.

SOURCE: Oil questions for 2003 Audi A6 Quattro

oil type is either 5W-30W or 10W-30W depending how cold your climate is, as far as having the car properly taken care of, the Audi dealer is the best option, they have all the proper tools and service info needed to keep the car in top running condition.

SOURCE: 2001 jaguar s-type 4.0 oil in spark plug area

Hi bravo956
i also have the same problem regarding the oil leak. this is due to the spark plug gasket leaking and you will need to replace them. they are circular gaskets about 1.5 inches across that fit to the underside of the rocker covers and prevent oil from seeping down the long spark plug hole. when i investigated my leak i assumed it was just the rocker cover gasket that was leaking but once everything was removed it is obvious.

SOURCE: Code EXT 50 / 51 Jaguar X-Type

The ''51'' problem on a S Type is caused by a faulty external temperature sensor (7 euros from main dealer) normally located down by the front spoiler in front of the radiator (on a S TYPE ! )
Try your original DVD back in the unit and afterdoing a system reset by disconecting your battery for 10 mins - make sure you have your radio code!
hope this helps - good luck

SOURCE: "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).

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.

Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

2003 X-type code 0442

Below is some information for you. Make sure you check all the fuel vapor lines around the gas tank. I have found with this code through experience it was a bad gas cap, bad conection in a vapor line around the gas tank (stuff from the road knocking things) or the canister assy itself. By the way it's not something that will cause you to get stuck somewhere and should be safe to drive until the problem is taken care of. Hope this helps....

Transmission went out

This is internal gear separation. this can happen when the transmission is either old or, hasn't been serviced in a while. the gear ratio can become unstable during long term driving and, if not serviced properly, it will fail. this type of high efficiency trany can be quite fragile considering the age of this motor vehicle. i suspect many seal issues as well. i would rebuild as soon as possible.

Jaguar X SE 2.5 gearbox problem

hey johnhoile,

Sorry to break the bad new to you, put you most likely need a transmission depending on what codes are stored in the system. I have dont numerous automatic transmission on x-types all they all started with a gear box fault light on.

If the codes have something to do with a incorrect gear ration that is a guarantee red flag for a new transmission
