The headlight needed replacing and could not simply be replaced with a replacement bulb as the original had melted and fused into the fittings.

We put $500 into brakes and new headlight. It still needed work to stop a smell of gasoline when the tank was full (another $500 repair) then it started making an ominous groaning noise. With 100K miles, it was just time to trade to something newer.

Repaired another headlight leveler. Takes all day, for a 20 cent piece of plastic. At dealer labor rates would cost $1,000. The Jag reputation needs to reflect this enormous cost for people to understand what the reliability actually is.

The check engine amber light came on while driving on the interstate. All of a sudden the red warning light came on and the engine went into 'safe' mode. The motor was knocking extremely loud. Had the car towed to my home, where it is still. After changing oil,filter twice, the engine will start but makes a loud knocking in the back 3 cylinders. The engine and transmission are not leaking. The engine does not smoke. No compression loss on any cylinders. Possible spring broke? Pulling car into garage, taking out battery, air filter, intake and valve cover on back three cylinders. Will check lifters, tappets, also both cams. Suggestions please contact me thru this web-site or by my email:danielj261-at-yahoo.com.

Threw P0420 and P0333 CEL codes. The P0420 is for a catalytic converter, however on the Jaguar the issue is 95% of the time caused by the oxygen sensor, weird I know. P0333 is for a knock sensor. November: No other symptoms, not fixed yet.
