Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hi, to some of you this may come across completely ignorant, but I figured I would give it a shot. I was wondering if it is at all possible to take a 4.0 L Jaguar s type, and swap its engine with that of the 4.2 L supercharged from the s type r. If at all possible, what would need to be upgraded to ensure vehicle was operational. Much thanks for any responses received.

The only thing odd about your question, is this
is not the forum for an answer,as those type
swaps are done behind closed doors & no info
is shared
It is a custom job or hobby, left to the all knowing
in the auto world

SOURCE: 2000 Jaguar S-Type Battery

I had to change the battery in my 1999 S-Type, you will need the radio code, I also needed to reprogramme the board computer which is easy if you have your manual at hand, also the car might act strangely for a while, but this is explained in your users manual, nothing to worry about.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 91 Toyota Previa AWD - Swap original engine for Previa Supercharged engine

I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

Was wondering if the rear tires have locks cannot seem to remove tire and dont know what the lock would look like if i saw it

Likely the center of the wheel is rusted to the hub. Put it on a secure jack (floor-jack or something that can't fall over) Sounds crude but give the tire a good shot with a heavy pipe right across the sidewall at the bottom (inside or outside usually works the same. Sometimes spraying some wd40 or other solvent into the lug holes so it gets behind the wheel and around the hub helps too. If you have aluminum wheels be careful not to hit the edge or they will crack.

The gas cap is usually a good suspect in this case, but to figure it out, you need to have your code scanned to figure out what is causing the light. Most auto parts stores will scan it for free, so give them a shot

Tyre pressure

Tire pressure should be indicated on the tires you purchased. it indicates the ideal tire pressure for those tires and it's unsafe to ignore them. but if you do less pressure will give you more grip.
