2005 Jaguar S-Type ProblemsTransmission Failure Common
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.
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.
2005 Jaguar S-Type QuestionsTransmission went out. I can't put the key in to start the car (2 answers)
on/emergency break NOT on. And I cannot drive nor reverse.
If I turn the motor off and start the car, sometime 5-6 times, the emergency break light goes off and I am able to proceed. It's annoying and I know there must be a bigger problem. How is this problem resolved?
2005 Jaguar S-Type RecallsFuel May Leak from the Fuel Tank
The fuel delivery module (FDM), jet pump module (JPM), and cluster valve (CV) seals on the fuel tank may not be seated properly, and may allow fuel leakage if the fuel level is above the affected seals. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank to see if the revised seals can be used for the repair. If they cannot, the fuel tank assembly will be replaced. The recall began January 29, 2007. The Jaguar recall number R176.
