    I have the same problem ie loosing all antifreeze as you put it in. It simply trickles to the ground within 30 seconds.

    If it is the pump, is it worth going to a dealer service station or can any service person do. Whar if there is something else wrong?

    Not very technical with cars .......but the black jag with leather seats was my dream car!

    Please advise.

I have the same car and had same problem. Your water pump needs to be replaced. That is where the leak is. Not a major job nor that expensive. I recommend using the green 2-year coolant vs. the orange 5-year coolant. The 5 year coolant does not protect well against cavitation (exploding bubbles) which is what caused your water pump leak. (You can research this on the I-net). The standard 2-yr coolant does protect against cavitation.

Unfortunately the mechanic you spoke to was correct, a lot of Ford products had a bad run of power steering pumps. They notoriously leak and causes the pump to whine when steering.

Jaguar 6 disc player not working

If you are getting power to the unit and you hear it clicking and making a sound when you hit the eject button, the this means that a CD is jammed in the track and while it was changing it got stuck and now causes you to see an ERROR message.
What you do is while hitting the eject button, wiggle the CD MAGAZINE up and down and side ways. This will cause the CD to fall into place and your magazine will pop out.

Cost to replace upper radiator hose 2002 Jag s-type Had oil changed and was told inspection revealed upper radiator hose leaking. replacement $360.00 plus tax. I have had no signs of thermastate...

it could be a weeping leak......that has not become so bad that the coolant is causing air to get into the system and run hot....the hose is about 130 bucks and about 1.5 hours to change...then coolant is 20.00 per liter from dealer so 360 is pretty close to the actual charges.But open the hood and let the car reach temperature and look for the hose running up the back of the from top to bottom.and see if you smell any coolant.

WE have the low level coolant indicator light on our Jaguar XK8. I purchased tow gallons of Prestone Coolant and would like to know the ratio of water to coolant in the radiator, as well as its volume....

You don't really need to flush it out. Most of the time it's a 50/50 coolant/water ratio. Check the bottles - often coolant is sold pre-diluted so you can just dump it in. If not, mix it equally with water and add it until it reaches the full mark (or the top of the radiator) and you're good.
