Hi all. Im new on here but need some advice? I have a 2007 stype diesel. 77k. Recently i noticed some smoke coming from under the hood. I took it to dealer and they said that the firewall at back of engine was smouldering??? The firewall is fabric!! I thought this was just sound proofing and always thought the firewall was like a foil metal type of sheet/material. Every thing in the car works and no electrical issues. The dealer said that to replaceitem they have to remover engine!! I then phoned another garage and they said that it was soundproofing which may have come away and was touching the cat or dpf, as these get very hot and consequently staryed to burn. They just advised me to rip that bit off . Since then I have looked at other s types and they do not have the so called firewall around the same parts of the engine as i do. Has anyone come across this before or have any knowledge of this. Hope all this makes sense. Advice help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the club, Marty.

I also have  a 2.7 Diesel s type with 77k on the clock.  I have just had a look at the back of the engine in my car and all I can see is the soundproofing neatly in its place.  I would be inclined to find and independent Jaguar expert  --  there is a garage in Northfield that seems to be well respected.

Let us know how you get on.

I posted earlier don't know if it went through but I have heard that sometimes the wabesto heaters on the 2.7 diesel give off fumes and smoke under the bonnet .On another forum some one had a similar thing happen to them. Any sound proofing near the exhaust or manifold should be heat resistant you may even have a rocket cover Oil leak and the Oil is dripping on to the exhaust manifold

Thanks Peter. Do you know the name of the garage by any chance.  Much appreciated.

Northfield Jaguar  ---  1163 Bristol Road South -- B31 2SL

O121 411 1077

The auxiliary heater, which is diesel powered should only come on in cold weather.
