Car taken to Stratstone, Sat Nav Reverse camera and audio all went blank. Still has waranty till June 2018,
Also two recall jobs to do.
They gave it a full health check and found a badly worn rear suspension arm.
They gave this car the same health check 1600 miles ago with a clean suspension report. The car is a 2013 facelift model with 50300 on the clock, I just don’t believe it. Bill £600.
They are also going to charge for the electric fault, not uppedr the waranty,even though after a week they still haven’t found the fault. So they say. Probably just a bad earth,
Their customer service is very poor. Can’t get through to them, but prommis to phone back ,which they don’t do.
The check engine light is on before I start the car but turns off once car is started. The car stalled and lost all power when I tried to excellerate to get onto freeway entrance. When I tried to restart the car the engine won’t stay on and car shuts off as if it has lost power. Also, it almost sounds like a wissle or hissing sound sometimes when I drive at faster speeds. Windows rolled up I can’t hear it, window slightly down I can faintly here it at times.All the lights and electrical things work. Car just stalled and cut off. Car will turn over, idle for seconds, ( I can give it gas and raise rpms but in the end cuts off) and then cut off
On both occasions, one in November 2017 and the other February 2018 water pipes of the cooling system burst. On both occasions the dealer replaced the pipes. However, the question is what is causing the pipes to burst. The vehicle was operating under normal traffic conditions and did not display signs of overheating or loss of power.
It started up once in a while but now cranks but won’t start. It is a 2003 Jaguar X-Type. I had this problem almost a year ago but haven’t had time to work on it until now. I recharged the battery before trying to start it. The last time I drove it, the engine stopped on me but I was able to restart it and get it home. Thank you!
This car was given to me it runs but will not move in any gear. When you shift back to park it grinds or clicks on the park pin. Is it the transfer case transmission or both?? I understand this is a common problem for these cars. Please help.

no sound at present, but the wheels moves up and down while on the lift.
80,000 miles. I've had a coolant leak over the last 2 1/2 weeks. "Coolant low" light would come on and tgan i woukd fill it and than I could drive for a day (50+ miles) and than have to refill again. Just recently showed white smoke/ steam coming from left side of engine and no sounds of knocking, hissing etc. . There is no smoke coming out of exhaust and oil is fine. The radiator fan comes on and there are no light indicators showing issues. Car runs fine, just the coolant leak and now engine smoke/ steam. I don't know what I should be looking for before taking it to a shop and possibly having to spend more than I should. Please help me understand what I should be looking for under the hood and under the engine from below.
