2007 Jaguar X-Type Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2007 Jaguar X-Type


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.

The small plastic lines or tubes that carry the hot coolant to the radiator may become brittle and break. Coolant can leak out and cause the engine to overheat.

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.
