Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
Replacing the timing chains on this engine is no cake walk and I would not recommend it to anyone unless they are very experienced technicians.
There is a specialty Ford tool, part number 303-645, that is used to set the crankshaft while the timing chain is being replaced. You will need another Ford tool, part number 303-530, which is used to lock the cam shafts in place in order to prevent rotation.
There are other tools needed, but they are for other aspects of the same job.
You can not just set the engine to TDC and work with it from there because of the VVT system and general nature of the engine.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
