I`m the owner of a rather immaculate x-type 2.0 d sport saloon and in November of last year I had to replace the manifold/turbo and actuator at a cost of £1400 +(ouch).All has been fine since until yesterday(Saturday)when motoring down the M6 my turbo blew(yet to be officially diagnosed) leaving me with no acceleration(0 to 50 in 5 mins)Breakdown truck/mechanic arrived and relayed back to my home in Stoke on trent.The previous work I had done by a jag specialist I believe was guaranteed for 6months to be confirmed tomorrow(Monday)when I get in touch with them.It would seem I`m looking at paying out a similar fee again because I`m told that the turbo only cannot be replaced on its own.I`m a pensioner and whilst I have the funds to have it rectified it will hit my bank balance hard.I would welcome any help in this area.My email is clank19@hotmail.co.uk

                            Many thanks,Peter

Peter,

 

Have you a friendly independent mechanic who could give you advice, they can usually get the genuine Jaguar parts cheaper also ?.

 

Do you live anywhere Sutton Coldfield ? that's where the other Peter lives (Old Peter) he has a very good mobile mechanic that he has used for years. He would probably be able to suggest someone else if that is too far away.

Sorry we live in Staffordshire, thanks for your answer, could you please let us have Peter's contact details to see if his mechanic would travel, I would be prepared to pay his travel expenses, alternatively could he  suggest someone a little closer.  Once again, thanks for your help.

 

I am having great difficulty logging on every time, so could you please pass on my email address which is clank19@hotmail.co.uk

 

Kind regards

 

Peter

Check out post number 49 in the independent garages thread. It's a fella in Stoke.

 

I hope you get things sorted.
