New member here. Love my S Type Diesel Sport - really great looks and drive, I've owned for about a year and found lots of really good info on this site. I enjoy it so much more than any of the Audi/BMW/Mercedes company cars I've had. I really don't want to lose my Jaguar, so wondered if anyone could help.
It's been running great but one evening last week it started to idle a bit roughly, it was fine when driving. I could feel a bit of a vibration through the steering wheel and transmission tunnel where my leg was. Was ok later that night on a short trip, started ok etc. But in the morning I couldn't start it (it usually starts very quickly). A couple of times it fired up and I could rev a bit but then it would just die.
I had Green Flag out and they said it seems like a fuel starve issue, more than likely a fuel pump, fuse or filter. When I put the key in the ignition I don't hear any whirring like I think I used to, presumably that would be the fuel pump doing it's thing? I can't find very much at all on replacing fuel pumps/filters etc online, although I think I found the relay which is on the top line of relays in the boot fusebox - unless of course anyone knows different!
Is it best to kick off by changing relay, then filter, then if needs be the pump? Is the pump quite straightforward to do as a relative novice? Any tips on doing the fuel filter please? I've had a couple of oil changes/other work done in the year I've had the car, but not the filter.
I can have someone look at this but of course I can't move the car off my drive. I also quite like doing this sort of stuff - makes a nice release from the day job!
Appreciate it's a bit of a wide question but would really appreciate any pointers.
