Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Mike Too right, feel free to share. Car on SORN until my mate can have a look, Even then I have no faith in the car even though I am attached to it. With 70% of new cars in China being returned to dealers for defects and reliability issues JLR deserve to go to the wall. They've lost their way ...

In the Post today:-

Who would have believed that this was £53.47 plus Postage, if you showed someone and asked how much do you think?, the reply would be a couple of quid not more than a Fiver and that would be generous. I must have a screw loose somewhere!.

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Mike Definitely a money pit. Stopped now though. If my mate can't fix it without removing the engine I'll contact ASM and scrap it. Good job we have a reliable BMW second car to run about in now. Beginning to look again at Mercedes/BMW for caravan duty so we'll see before the XF, now 10 years ...

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Folks Well got the car back 3rd July they could only do two of the pipes 218 and 219, they didn’t do 217 because they said the engine had to be removed to do it, as with the plastic coolant inlet bracket. There must be even less room in the engine bay in an S Type than in the X350 to be able t...

Re: Binding NSR Parking Brake

Hello Peter I would suggest the piston in the calliper is seizing. The clue being how hard it was to wind it back. Eurocarparts do an exchange service for the calliper at a reasonable cost, note wait until the end of a calendar month for the best discount. Bremtech do the same sort of scheme. Check ...

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Folks Update Pipes have arrived from SNG Barratt, and I've coated them in POR 15 Black protective paint. IMG_6565.JPG You'll notice on the packaging Jaguar labels. No wonder they cost so much. Car booked in at Stokenchurch Services 25th to have them fitted and correct coolant refilled, only be...

Re: eco Stop/Start not working

Hello m5jlm Assuming it's not simply switched off, if the battery is even slightly worn out it will stop working, check the fitness of the battery. You probably would not notice the degrading of the battery having no trouble starting the car. The further it degrades more alarms will occur e.g. DSC n...

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Mike Funny that, I've been looking at 350's lately, Chiltern Jaguar have moved to Junction 5 of the M40 Stokenchurch in the last year or so, thus they are very close neighbours and have loads of Jaguars in their showroom and lot. It's like a permanent car show all these shiny Jags. My friend j...

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Mike Had a look at the Viper site, very interesting and worth a mental note. There are 4 metal pipes, one long and three short (thin walled mild steel conduit) under the engine between it and the under tray connecting hoses together. They all have various bends and kinks in them and are thus a...

Re: Coolant Leak

Hello Folks Well re-Taxed car 1st June, 5th June:- car dumped all the Coolant Fluid on the drive in the yard after a short journey to Marlow and back.
