If you look under the hood/bonnet, you will see a resevoir with a black (possibly grey) and will have writing on it. With the engine cold, remove/unscrew the cap and you can add at this point. You should be able to see the level from the side and compare to the graduation marks on the side. The resevoir will be yellowish in color. Let me know if you need anything else.

How do you repair jaguar s type with a s701 code


I'm not familiar with a code that is s701, typical engine cades start with P. However, jag had a mfr recall numbered S701 on 98-99 xj models. What year and engine is your jag? Also try these links http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/s-type-s-type-r-supercharged-v8-x200-15/s-type-check-engine-codes-61719/. http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/jaguar/. JAGUAR S701 1672 V 3/1/2002 1998 XJ series, WJCXV04.0AS3 A number of owners of 1998 through 1999 model year Jaguar XJR vehicles, 1983 50S 4444 1999 XK series XJCXV04.0AS3 equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation system, have been alerted to the 2461 50S presence of a possible problem by the sound of an exhaust leak and/or illumination of the MIL. It was established that the noise was being caused by exhaust gas escaping from the pipe that transfers exhaust gas from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve. The escape was caused by a crack in the transfer pipe. Remedy: The design of the convolutions that provide for flexibility of the transfer pipe has been modified to improve the pipe's resistance to damage during installation and due to vibration. A heat sock has been added to provide a vibration damping medium for the pipe. Technical Service Bulletin S701 describes corrective action. Hope this helps

I would suggest replacing all fluids incl: Engine oil/filter, transmission oil/filter, differential oil, coolant flush/replace thermostat, brake fluid, and spark plugs. Some might consider this overkill, but some of these changes are ignored and can greatly shorten the life of the powertrain or brakes.

I don't know the vehicle but from your description of the Icon it appears to be telling you that the level of coolant in the cooling system is very low. Don't drive the vehicle until it is topped up and check throughly for any leaks from all hoses to see what is causing the water loss.

I have been with same problem on a BMW 325i.
It is because you need to add oil. Less oil= extrem temperature!
