Jaguar S-Type RecallsFuel May Leak from the Fuel Tank
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.
