No matter what happens, I always come back to Jaguar, so I hope they're finally building them right in 2009. I have replaced all the hoses, the radiator, the water pump and the header tank to no avail. Have only put on 5k miles in 18 months. I only get cool when the engine is cool or the outside temperature is cooler. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic and it was discovered that there was a lock-up in the automatic gear box. There are few cars which hold up style-wise in the auto industry over 10 years.
Guess I'll find out when I can finally afford a used one in a few years. Cost me a grand and well spent. If you clarify your description with responses to his questions, that will help people understand what is really happening with your Jaguar and give you some advice on the cooling system. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Answered on Apr 04, 2015.
Updating side markers to indicator lights. I sold my first Coupe like an idiot. The other small things like top fluid and thermostat, but all in all I would say it has been a very reliable car with few problems. I have also installed a performance intake and exhaust system so it sounds much better too. I am now being told it could be the coil springs.
I had estimates from 2 shops to replace the units. The failure and current mileages were 110,000. The seals in the cyl's leak by, and there isn't enough pressure to lift the top. After cleaning the partload breather and throttle body and I still get the occasional stall , I bought an aftermarket warranty. Beware - as they apparently will lie and say whatever they can to get you in the door. Upgraded chain tensioner, water pump.
I would say the car was fairly good value at £53600 with several options. Required refilling the tank on the pump in the trunk, passenger sideb behind carpeted panel. I'm in a bad situation because it's getting cloudy and I can't get it down. Changed oil 3 times since sept 2002. I sold my first Coupe like an idiot.
Replaced front wheel bearings, valve cover gaskets. Even wider smile when you push that button and the top peels back. Answered on Jan 12, 2019 Same thing has happened on mine! I have seen coil spring extenders that expand sagging coil springs, should I try this first? Faults: Steering rack had to be replaced. However, like any used car, if it has been abused or mistreated it is too costly to bring back to life. Mine passed but I am concerned that it may develop.
It seems that sulphur content alone may not damage the engine, but a combination of this and many short journeys with lack of propper servicing. The authorized dealer ordered the replacement transmission. No external fluid leaks, just internal to the cyl's. When the odometers are bouncing off 100,000 miles, they tend to require pretty significant maintenance. For the money, I don't believe you can buy a more beautiful or elegant car for the many. If it still doesn't work, get out the test light and start checking for power. Forget the Jag specialists, look for a local independent shop specializing in suspension and alignment.
I will never regret having owned a Jaguar. All this in just about 15 months of ownership. The problem in my Jag was the hydraulic cylenders that raise the top. These Coupes are a thing of the past. I was originally told it was a ball joint. I had that plus the control arm changed they come together.
Std Std Locks, Power Door Std Std Steering Wheel, Tilt Std Std Windows, Power Std Std Drive, 2 Wheel Rear Std Std Differential, Limited Slip Std Std Traction Control Standard in Canada. As the chunky old fluid is washed away, leaks appear. I checked the internet and found hundreds of blogs of complaints involving the exact same problem. I just hope it isn't too much. The design was meant to be reminiscent of the Jaguar E-Type, and chief of design Geoff Lawson oversaw a pretty stunning rendition. But they do not always leak, because the chunks of congealed oil act as leak-plugs, which means the problem worsens with age, while remaining invisible. Is this the right solution? I have exactly the same problems.
