Hi Ray,


First, welcome to the club.


With regard to leaks in an S type, I had one into the boot and found that the ingress of water was occurring because the rubber seal was a little twisted.  It could be the same for the passenger footwell.  The rubber seals can wear out.   Check that is is not coming in through the door at the bottom.

Hi Ray,


The 2.5 litre V6 is the engine used also in the x type  --  I had one for almost 2 years and 15k miles.  Jaguar discontinued using it in the s type due to lack of demand when they brought in the 2.7 litre Diesel engine, plus the fact that they never sold any in the USA where the 3 litre, and 4.2 litre engined cars were more popular.  A friend of mine bought one in 2001 and still has it without any problems.


When I bought my first Jaguar I was told by the dealer that I would never buy another make.


The s type, notwithstanding it is a rear wheel drive, holds the road very well and is a real drivers car.


Just enjoy it.

after reading many horror stories about the 2.5 petrol s type, i thought id made a huge mistake, i feel much better now,

still cannot find the leak in passenger footwell. is there a used parts thread on here for the s type, i just love driving mine, who knowes i may upgrade to a newer one. also if i took it to a garage, could they update the computer, would i and the car benefit from

this given the fact shes running ok, would i need to take it to a Jaguar garage, im sure they charge more than a local garge, would like the cheapest option as im disabled with limited funds; thank you so much, regards  ray

There is a topic on this site about independent garages, Ray.  It is well worth having a look at it,  --  you might find something fairly local.  Main dealers are a bit expensive and there are quite a few garages that specialise in Jaguars.


Has your car got the touch screen/satnav built in?    .   Maps can be up dated but Jaguar charge a lot for a disc update.  I bought a Map update from MY SATNAV UPDATES for £29 which is reasonable.


Used and new parts can be source from various sites on the internet.  Just google what you need and you will get some options.


I lost the cap for the screen wash reservoir --  slipped down the side of the engine compartment and is probably somewhere in the from bumper -- and I got a new one for £3.75 via eBay with free P&P. It would have cost more in diesel to go the main agent and is probably cheaper online.
