My check engine light has been on for a while now, so I took car to jaguar ,when I got my estimate of all the things wrong it was 10,000 Drs I laughed. The car started to shake while steering, that's all I wanted them to check. I had breather hoses etc have holes, engine oil leaking slowly,needed to clean brake fluids,needed rear and front sway bars, need windshield wiper blade, mind u I just replaced, I also needs both cracked headlight s with bulbs which all I needed was a bulb eBay 12 Drs, the list went on. I did my research and told them to just fix the breather hoses and walk problem solved , I still need 92 censor ,sway bars, they also said I needed tires and alignment ,for which I also had done before I took car there. I do have a small oil leak from the gasket, but I never have to put oil in between oil changes. Jaguar is the biggest ripoff ....don't go, but I'm slowly fixing everything that's I need ,but my car runs great... So beware all these things go wrong with this car.
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
my car is park i have the motor running the motor get hot form runnung' the rpm revs up and a red scenter light come on and im selling moyor burning smell 'can you please tell me what is going on,
I discover 93rd oil on driveway which I found out it's oil under gasket,i was told that they had to remove the engine to fix and wanted like2thousand from jag to fix and my engine light stays ok,i just keep changing it I and left it alone if I look I Google ,u don't need to lift the engine to fix the problem.however I just started to get a burnt smell,
I bought this car with 39,xxx and it now has 76,xxx. It has dripped oil since I've owned it and I just now got it fixed with a new oil pan gasket. NO more leak!
Dealer claimed it couldn't cover it under warranty 3 years ago, having to pay $1400 to replace...
