First Jaguar new member

Recommended Posts

Hi all well I joined a while ago but just took out premium membership, thought I would say hi now I own a 2001 S-type SE sport 3.0 V6 and at 39 years old I love it.  Apart from the gear box fault which seems has now developed, didn't pay a great deal for it but loving it.

I'm hoping the gear box isn't going to be a big head ache.

Any way look forward to speaking to you all over time 

Has full jaguar service history and covered 87'541 miles I guess low to average for the age.

Hi Jim 

Thanks for your feedback, I have a Obd2 code reader but it won't read my car for some reason maybe my car is not obd2 compliant which would mean going to a garage I guess and having the code read just a shame I can't read it myself.

But yes that will be the starting point and thanks for the advice on the oil.

Hi Karl

I have a OBD2 scanner and it works a treat on my s type it tells you the problem and resets the on board computer. i plug her in to my Girl often. the make is Konnwel KW808 bought off ebay £23 great buy. shame you live too far away you could have borrowed it ( im in Rotherham)

On the S Type..... they are a Great motor. I'm on my second one. I Just Love em. Just today ive been upto Darlington then called off at York round trip of about 180 miles mostly in cruise and she never missed a beat. Good look in rectifying your problem as i'm sure you will

Chipper 

hi I now got a scanner sealed A139 works great gave me a code and told me it's preasure solenoid c which is part of the solenoid pack, however think I'll have to look at it as the only solenoid packs I can find online come from USA and not entirely sure which one it is.

First port of call is to try and make sure it's not just low on oil as this would also cause a preasure issue I should think, unless anyone else has had the same issue and can recommend trying anything else.

But yes if anyone is near bury St edmunds in Suffolk I have a code reader should you need one.

Hi Jim 

This is quite helpful if not a little disheartening as I don't have that sort of money to get it fixed at a garage.

The car was bought privately and he did write a receipt for 28 days warranty however I have tried numerous times to contact him regarding this and he completely ignores me so without taking my chances and going through the small claims court I'm at a lost end but I will certainly look at the wiring to see if there is anything obvious first

Just out of curiosity and for the near future has anyone succeeded in finding one of these springs (56947J-S1 4-3 pre-stroke spring) in the UK as to get one from the USA the postage is like ridiculously high.  I'm just thinking worth having one for the sake of few quid in the event of having to go inside the box as if this is broke might as well change it why we there

Hi Karl,

You could try the David Manners Group.  Give them that part number and see what they say.

If they have one, their shipping costs are not that high.

I got a part for a member in Loughrea Co.Galway and as the shipping cost to Ireland were quite expensive, I delivered it to him on my way to Balinderreen last June!

So if their shipping costs are high, I could pick it up and post it to you quite cheaply, as I live only 10 miles away.

Regards,

Peter.
