Question about 2008 Jaguar X Type
The fuel gauge on a jaguar x type is regulated by a floating gas gauge that measures resistence; the float drags a contact across a board that has variable resistence. You can retrieve the sending uint from the gas tank by removing the carpet cover and the spare tire assembly from the trunk. Then you carefully tap the retaining ring from the tank and remove the fuel sending uint. You will see the float, the assembly and the resistor board. carefully take the unit apart, and the sliding joint where the float meets the board (which is made of copper) needs to be cleaned, I suggest Brasso, a metal shiner. Rub it well into the copper joints and let it dry to a haze, then buff it to a brilliant shine. Reassemble the sending unit and replace it into the tank. The unit will work perfectly from empty to full for about another 20 years, and the two dollar investment in the Brasso is well worth is; saves you about 60 bucks on a new sender
