Question about Jaguar S-Type
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.

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.

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).
