2005 Jaguar S-Type Problems

Ignition coil failure may cause the engine to run poorly. The fault can be intermittent and may or may not illuminate the Check Engine Light.

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

Improved coolant hoses that are able to withstand cooling system pressure are available (Jaguar Service Bulletin S518). These improved hoses help avoid engine overheating by preventing the coolant hose from inadvertently detaching from the engine.

2005 Jaguar S-Type Reviews

It's a fortune every time I take it in to the shop, but that isn't a surprise. I've owned Audi's, Porsche's and Mercedes and they all seem to have their share of problems.
