Use anything thing that says "Dex-Cool". I use the Zerex brand for my 2003 X-type. Dex-Cool is an OAT (organic additives) type coolant which is what the x-type is supposed to have. It lasts 5 years or 150K miles.

The other two types of coolants are:

HOAT (H stands for hybrid)which is a combination of organic and inorganic additives (generally yellow in color). Some euro cars use this type.

IAT: Inorganic additives (the old green stuff) that American cars used to use prior to 1996.

My X-type, when new, came with the orange OAT so that's what I stay with. Have had the car 10 years. No problems.

SOURCE: 2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.

Any antifreeze that is "Global" would work in your vehicle. It should say "global" or "universal" on the label. Make sure that it is properly diluted unless you buy pre-mixed or "50-50" antifreeze.
