Stype sump gasket

Recommended Posts

 Jaguar S Type 3 ltr petrol 2005.

I have a minor Oil leak I think from the sump gasket. I was quoted £560.00 by Guy Salmon to replace it.

I understand it is a huge job but for that kind of money I'll put up with it.

Any suggestions???

Hi Roy

two choices I would think, if its really minor (I have the same) just keep an eye on your Oil level, and top up as required, or get a quote from another garage, dare I say Halfords...

I had quite a bad leak so had to get it sorted. I was told there is no point in just changing the gasket because the sump tends to deform.

The price at my local independent Jag garage to fit new sump, gasket and labour was £280 + VAT

Thanks for that, I'll see if I can find somebody local.

Hi,

I have the same symptom with my 2005MY 3.0 SE. However the leak (well more of a gentle seep) has been apparent for the last two years without really impacting on Oil loss. In fact I haven't noticed any difference on my dip stick level. I did at the time I first noticed the leak start to panic a bit as I had visions of a big invoice to fix it. I traced the leak to my engine Oil pan gasket. However this was only possible with the plastic engine underbelly air deflector removed. Oil was evident on a number of engine components e.g. a/c pump, alternator, steering rack and gearbox bell housing. The oil was also dripping from some of the oil pan bolts. I cleaned the whole area with brake cleaner and monitored the "leaks progress". I decided the leak was so insignificant I have parked it for now. However all that said I have decided (when it's really necessary) to carry out the work myself as my motor industry experience tells me that it can be done with fairly minimal equipment. I do expect it to be a lengthy job though.

The parts I bought in readiness for the inevitable job:- Genuine Jaguar sump gasket - £35 ish - engine oil and new filter of course - £65 ish and the most import part was the engine lift bar - between £39 and £90 although I bought the cheaper one and I'm very impressed. A pair of ramps, trolley jack and a pair of axle stands are also a prerequisite. Have a look at the link below and you will see that it's not such a difficult job (depending on the confidence level) and can save a lot of money.

Thanks for that Budgie, mines the same just a seep, I like things right, however, same as yourself I,ve decided its a job for the backburner.

If you get round to doing yours and its not too difficult maybe you could let me know, use yours as a practice run and maybe you fancy doing another one now you have all the gear.

Best Regards

Lol! Roy - like your style.:thumbup1:

I'll certainly post it when it's done - but don't hold your breath as it probably won't be any time soon. :smoke:

Cheers
