Jaguar X-Type Engine Oil Pan Gasket May Leak

(53 reports)

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. -

slight weeping on oil pan seal , oil loss is minimal , so will just monitor in case it gets worse , if this is a regular fault with these enginines it would be nice if dealers would sort it. -
Minor leakage from the oil pan drips onto the exhaust on the passenger side and smells a little especially in cold tempertures. Not sure what its more noticable then. I have not spent a $1000 to fix it. Every couple of months I wipe down the area underneath the engine while making a regular inspection. Seems to keep the leak under control - actually its really just a weep no dripping to speak off. -
