Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

How do I change my own oil ?

I want to change my oil on my jaguar x-type 2.5 myself and I need details on how to do it. I also would like to get a price quote on the metal/fiberglass strip located in the front of the car below the lights, it looks like it goes across the radiator, It came off one day when I dodged a hole and hit a construction cone. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Eric Weathers

You need to lift the car , open the drain plug from under located on the oil pan , let it drain for about 10 minutes , remove the filter , replace the filter with new seal , put back the drain plug with new washer , then put the oil in the engine as per your manual for quantity. Start the car for couple of minute , shut off , check the oil level and adjust accordingly to reach he correct level. I would put less oil than specified so that you do not have extra oil and then you can top it. After that is done lift car again to make sure that there are no leeks around the drain plug or filter

Oil change for jaguar


That depends on the type of oil you use. You have more than one option for this car , you can go with Semi Sentetic / Castrol and replace from 8000 KM - 10000 KM or you can go with full sentetic that will give you from 20000 KM - 25000 KM.

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Transmission oil filling


I changed the transmission oil on my pu truck ford f150. It was easy.
You'll need a transmission filter and transmission oil ask the serviceman how many qts you need.
Remember that you will have to check the dipstick and see that the two holes on it are covered with red trans fluid while the engine is running. Remember while the engine is on then you check to see if you need to add which you certainly will have to keep adding until it is full. Sorry i didnt give you more details.
