2006 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.
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.
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.
