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.

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.
Slow oil leak also,jaguar told me I have to lift the engine to repair shouldn't that be a recall or on recall maintain? My check engine light has also been on,and the car says faulty box ,does that means the batteryB.
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
