The plastic coolant reservoir is prone to leak. The reservoir can mysteriously lose coolant or coolant may pool under the engine compartment. If this occurs, the coolant reservoir should be inspected for cracks. If leaks are neglected, the reservoir may fail and cause the engine to overheat.

2001 Jaguar S-Type Reviews
Beautiful looking Car and great looking interior with a really impressive motor - thats where it ends. Cheap bushing that doesn't last and cheap bits such as the expansion tank which is prone to cracking causing the engine to overheat. The transmission (auto) is rubbish and the Achilles heel of the car. The interior plastic cannot take the climate (desert) or UV and cracks easily. Jaguar reeks of style and quality thats why this car does not deserve the badge - it is shameful and I am a Brit who has owned many XJs and XJs. Please walk away from this car at all costs.
