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.

    It is a oil pan bolt that takes 8hours to remove the transaxle ,
    Tighten the bolt and reinstall transaxle. What a joke, shame on jag

    My oil pan began leaking at 32,000 miles and even though all oil changes were done by the dealer they chose to not disclose this problem. A problem like this should have prompted a recall especially when it involved 9 hours of labor. Since the leakage was slight and the engine oil level was not reduced it was overlooked. The dealer service department had to have noticed while making the oil changes that oil was splattered so this indicates the ethics of Jaguar dealers.

    Dealer recommended a new seal for about $1200

    Think I will just check the oil level regualarly

    Just found out after getting an oil change. I will take it to a mechanic for repair.

    Your symptoms are correct and had it replaced but it was hard for mechanic to get to it :-(
