Re: Cruise Not Available - Loss of Power

I believe the "no cruise control" warning is the first on the list so that if anything presents this then gets flagged up.If it helps, I'm on my third X Type and any fault codes presented usually bear little resemblance to the fault in question. By way of example and a few years ago I experienced a ...

Re: Facelift Door Mirror Fix

Hi Paul - I'm not happy to admit public ally to such a horrendous act of vandalism. I did it in a moment of panic, it worked and I will get around to a proper resolve when I retire this year. My greater concern at the moment is hardening seals in the gearbox presenting in a harsh first to second shi...

Re: Facelift Door Mirror Fix

I'm not proud admitting this publicly but I squirted silicone sealant in there and this has worked perfectly over the last ten years. 5 minute fix. Obviously a significant bodge (I was late for the ferry) but has stood the test of time. Would I resort to such again in the future. Hopefully not as I'...

Re: Pressurised coolant header tank.

Hi Alec I've a similar problem with my wife's 2005 2.5 Sport. I've plugged various leaks which I believe in sequence were caused by excessive pressure building up and the system merely finding the next weakest point. I think I can smell exhaust gasses in the coolant but will need to get that checked...

Dash Cam Road Rage

Against my better judgement I was persuaded to take a look at some of the "Road Rage" UK type dash cam footage out there on the internet. I couldn't help thinking that in many of the clips, the "dash-cam" vehicle driver either ramped - up a situation, or continued to abuse the other driver to the ma...

Re: Fault on warning lights

Hi DTBQR Welcome to the forum. There is usually someone here that can help. The way you describe the fault I would guess the problem to be a combination of the handbrake release button not fully going back and the micro switch on the base of the handbrake leaver faulty or just out of adjustment. I b...

Re: XJS prices - what's the state?

All very interesting, but. When I went to pay in a petrol station recently the guy behind the counter siad something along the lines of,... nice car Mister. Always liked those Capris. On the up side those old Fords do seem to sell at a far higher premium than our beloved means of transport. On the d...

Re: EU backs ending daylight saving time

I'm with you on this. Why bother changing the clocks,and everything else twice a year. That said. I expect sometime after the end of March (2019) that we will be going back to the good old days when when we even had time zones across England. Did make train timetables a little awkward but then again...

Re: Alternator issue - advice please

Hi David I'm with Paul on this. Exactly the same problem I was having a couple of years ago to the extent I ran out of electricity leaving Norfolk bound for Kent and had to call upon one of the better known Breakdown Services. Their Man told me the alternator was kaput (but I knew it wasn't). He cha...

Re: How do you view the register of cars ?

Is it not the case that under GDPR we (whose data is stored)only need to give our consent to the format and nature that it will be used. Could we not tick a box to agree to this being the case. It is such a shame that legislation designed to protect can also hinder. My thoughts would be on entering ...

Re: XJS Backfire

Hi Dave

I had something similar the other day (albeit mine is an AJ16), On examination turned out to be a number of leaves had managed to get lodged through the air intake and blocked the filter. Actually took quite a chunk out of the paper element.

Hope yours is easily sorted
