Re: Low Coolant Level Warning

If the level is correct and the warning persists, then the sensor must be at fault, that is not a code you would have to clear. New sensors are relatively inexpensive and I think a pretty easy DIY fix.

Re: Starting issues

Thanks Mike,

I will have another look, but certainly not as obvious as that pic on mine, perhaps I am being daft. Is the position the same on normally aspirated vs supercharged engines?

Re: Starting issues

Definitely same thing, though part number is XR858700. Does seem to be tucked away under air inlet, with no easy access as far as I can see.

Re: Starting issues

Ok, had another look today, still unsure where this sensor is, sorry! See picture below, is that it? If so how on earth do you get to it as the air intake sits directly above it?

Re: Starting issues

There was no end to the story, as the sensor is still sitting on the shelf in my garage! Never got round to fitting it and the problem seemed to cure itself...

Re: Newbie / thoughts - 1998 3.2 XJ Sport

Agree with Andy, aftermarket parts fine for most jobs, but transmission oil must be the proper stuff, though you can still get cheaper than £300. It will exasperate you at times, but when it's running well nothing finer!

Re: knocking from rear wheel

Does the noise persist when driving? Most knocks are suspension or wheel bearing, the latter may be a more constant grinding noise. First thing is to remove the wheel and check for any obvious suspension issues. Difficult to assess wheel bearings as the usual method of looking for play when rocking ...

Re: ANTI LOCK LIGHT on X300

Agree a sensor most likely culprit, a code reader will tell you. Sensors are available from Eurojag, only a few quid and dead easy to fit.

Re: Aftermarket Parking Sensors

I fitted one that goes around the number plate on my old X300. Ok it only has 2 sensors on it, at either side of the number plate, but it worked well and was easy to fit, splicing it into the reverse lamp wire. I am pretty sure you can still get them, have a look on eBay.
