2004 Jaguar S-Type Problems

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.

Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.

A plastic component in the HID head light may fail and cause the head light to point toward the ground. The adjuster—which is very expensive—needs to be replaced to fix the problem.
