Diff update

A few of you may remember I had a noisey diff on my S Type, I thought I would change Oil in it , so I put some Lucas sae 75/140 synthetic Oil in it and about 300 miles later the diff is now silent. So if you have the same problem it may be worth a try, think it was about £30 for a couple of ltr's.

Hi David,

 

Jaguar say that the automatic gearbox is sealed for life.  At the same time most people think that a change of Oil at 75,000 is rather beneficial and does cure some problems.  I will be having my car done when it gets near that mileage.

 

Glad you problem has been solved.

 

Peter.

Very pleased with the car now, got the car at bargain price because of wheel bearings , and diff, Jag wanted over £1500 to fix it, I got the bearings through work for £180, done them myself, and £30 for diff Oil, well happy, I must get some photo's up, 2002 3.0 S Type, 125000 miles and it looks like it just rolled out of the factory.

I think around 22 ish Popeye , that's doing about 5 miles from town to town and not much street driving, I was surprised when  I done my first motorway journey, not far I know, from Ely in Cambridgeshire to the 40's weekend in Chatham and got close to 36 mpg, but that was paying a lot of attention to the road and traffic to see what the old cat would do, think the next journey I will brim the tank before and after to get a more true reading, its a lot better on fuel than my diesel Range Rover was, I can tell that by my fuel bill.

that's interesting jampot as I am doing about 8 miles a day to and from work in town and only getting 220 miles from a full tank.

I recently filled her up and drove from Stockton to Liverpool and back which is a 300 mile round trip and tank was empty again. Is this about right I wonder ?

I checked the air filter and it looked clean enough.

I will have to brim the tank and do my normal day to day running around and brim the tank again and work it out like that, as I have never took much notice of the short journey mpg.

I done a long journey the other day and I could only get around 32, so you could say I get around a average of 33 on a long run, I think it depends on so much, quality of fuel ect

Ok I will have to do the same and see how it goes, 'im not to good at working out ltr's to mpg, I am still feet and inches, I think me and the wife are going to Great Yarmouth sometime this week to escape the family, I will have to fill up before and after the journey and let you know the figures, as I said I cant do the lte to mpg stuff.
