Jaguar S-Type recalls

 

For Models: Jaguar S-Type

Engine, January 29, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fuel delivery module (FDM), jet pump module (JPM), and cluster valve (CV) seals on the fuel tank may not be seated properly, and may allow fuel leakage if the fuel level is above the affected seals. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank to see if the revised seals can be used for the repair. If they cannot, the fuel tank assembly will be replaced. The recall began January 29, 2007. The Jaguar recall number R176.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A problem with the Electronic Park Brake module, which controls the application of the parking brake, may unintentionally apply the parking brake without warning or indication. This condition can cause the rear wheels to "lock up," which could lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the Electronic Park Brake module with the latest production version.
