Oil leak on 54 plate jaguar x type

Hi can anyone help me. I have a 54 plate jaguar x type diesel 2 ltr. It has a bad oil leak which appears to be around the timing chain cover but it is very difficult to see exactly where it is coming from. It also has a strange noise on idle which, I believe, may be the auxilliary drive belt tensioner. If anyone could shed any light on these problems it would be much appreciated. Thanks and Regards, Peter

Hi I have the same problem on my 07 plate 2.2 litre diesel x type - oli seal needs to be replaced behind timing cover - the part is cheap at about 16 pound but the labour is horrendous at around 450 because of the need to dismantle so much to get the cover off...

    Im afraid you have been ripped off. It is simply removal of the crank pulley and the seal twists out and the new one twists and locks in. Takes about 30 mins to do. I have done many.

    Regarding the noise from idle. It will be the crank damper (the aux drive belt tensioner) There is a modified part from Jaguar. Easy job to carry out as long as you have a decent tool kit

Hi Have aJ aguar X type 05 Plate 2 litre Diesel, Oil leak coming from drivers side of the engine and ideas? Cheers Mark

sounds like a oil sending unit check the backside of your motor upperside towards firewall on drivers side, looks like a 1to 11/2 inch plugg with 2 or 3 wires comeing from it. it may also be by the oil filter.. if its wett with oil you need to change it, when they go bad you will leave an oil line or oil drip while driving.maby lots of white smoke, you can let the car idol and look underneeth to track it down.. very easy to change. any auto parts stor should have them in stock.. just disconnect the wires and take out like removing a bolt.. then replace. if its on the bottom you may have to remove the oil first unless you want oil everywhere.. i hope this helps

Jag X TYPE Diesel Black smoke coming from exhaust on acceleration

i had this problem and thought the fuel filter oil filter needed replacing so i have just had a service done but problem is still there but not as bad. been told it could be the AGR valve or a split pipe going to it which recuirculates unused fuel back to burn again. therefore unspent fuel is coming out of the exhaust causing the black smoke. i am still looking for the answer aswell, hope this helps.

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.

Water ingestion

i have recently serviced my xtype estate diesel i had a lot of trouble priming the high pressure pump, took ages nearly flattened battery,my solution was to disconnect the fuel from filter to inlet side of pump and pour fuel into pipe, it was a bit messy but eventually did the trick.
