Hello, my name is Freddie and I am new to this forum. I am hoping to receive information that will help me go forward in making a decision about my 2000 Jaguar s_type 4.0. My first question is if I can replace my 4.0 engine and transmission, with the 3.9 engine and transmission? I found out about the recall much to late, with regards to those plastic tensioners. If I am able to make such a swap, I will just take the entire engine and transmission from a 2000 Lincoln LS, and replace all of the plastic tensioners, and have this entire unit placed into the Jaguar that I own. So, if there is anyone with this answer, please notify me at: Bugwa89@gmail.com I welcome all the help that I can get. Thank you all for your support. Freddie

Welcome to the Club, Freddie.

I admire your thoughts about a replacement engine using the Lincoln 3.9 litre.

The body pan/chassis on which the Jaguar s type is based is from a Lincoln and the S type was part designed in Detroit.

A good engineer should be able to assist and advise.

Good Luck,
