2004 Jaguar X-Type Problems

Transmission 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.

Engine Oil Pan Gasket May Leak

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

Persistent Coolant Loss Due to Small Leak at Coolant Reservoir

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.

2004 Jaguar X-Type Reviews

Bought my 2004 X-Type 3.0L AWD with 51,000 and it now has 135,000. Will not get rid of this car. Best car I have ever bought. Yes parts are a little high but hey it's a Jaguar. AWD is great. No motor issues. had sensor on Trand go out but no big cost.Will do 140 mph and get 22mpg around town and 27mpg on Hwy. What else could you ask for. Oh Yeah IT'S A Jaguar....
I had the same issue with the headlight. Went to the local auto parts store and got a very generic pigtail and spliced it in. About $4 and 30 minutes labor in my garage, good as new.
My driver side headlight went out and melted the plug. I was told it would cost my 1500.00 dollars to replace the plug. Not happy.
