  1. Hi Carl, I had a problem with the Key on my s type. I had an examination a few days ago with and the issue about the performance was sorted out. Then the keys started to fail and a new battery was needed and fitted but still the car was getting lower performance notwithstanding the new battery. I know a very small but extremely good local business so I went to their 3 man office. They felt that the Key was a failure even thought it was starting the engine just opened by hand, The leading engineer told be that there was nothing at all wrong with the engine but the key was a 100% wrong. I came away with 2 keys that were very different but vert good and the engine was as smooth as ever. If you ever need a new key for your Jaguar look up DUPLICUT VEHICLE LOCKSMITHS [0121 354 1499] - unfortunately for you as they are in Sutton Coldfield. Regards, Peter.
  2. Hi Edward, An expert mechanic could help. I am no expert in these more modern Jaguars. Regards, Peter.
  3. Welcome to the club Wilma. I enjoy my Jaguar. Regards. Peter.
  4. Welcome to the club, Mike — Not always like that. I do quite understand what had happened and I would be quite annoyed myself/ I have always left my old S type with my son on our holidays but we have not had any since the covid rules, but now I will use a trickle charger. Regards, Peter.
  5. Hi Ross, I don't think that the battery is failing. I have the 12v reader and have been told that it reads when the engine on. I get 14.4 when the battery is switched on.. The battery is OK. A battery charger such as a CTEK will tell you the battery level. Regards Peter.
  6. Welcome to the Club, Sukhi. You are a great choice when it comes to cars! I think you will enjoy the cars that you have. I also think that you will like the club as the club members will also enjoy seeing your cars. Regards, Peter.

    Hi Carl, Giving the exhaust system some revs you will find that a diesels lower revs than a petrol engine. My S Type 2.7 Diesel gives me 2,100revs f0r 70 mph, while my X Type 2.5 Petrol used to give me over 3,500 revs for 70 mph. Regards Peter

    Welcome to the club, Kev. I have had the same with my S Type and done the same on the A 38. I would advise a steady run on something between 45mph and 60 mph. Let us know how it goes. Regards, Peter.
  10. Welcome to the cub, Kristian. You father must have been a wonderful man and a massive contribution to Jaguars. I wanted a Jaguar for over 40 years but tieback pocket never had enough money. But the last 10 years allow me to have several Jaguars. I think that you will be a very useful member of the club. My best wishes an regards, Peter.
  11. Hi Peter, We live in a big city and speed limits and sometimes have some poor drivers and think that Jaguar owners drive too slowly when they could go faster. I have been told that I should go quicker when there is the space. I have told them that I prefer to live longer. The 6th of June will see me at 88! Regards Peter.
  12. Welcome to the club, Peter. I used to have a similar Jaguar and I found that the best way of improving fuel efficiency was to drive at a suitable speed. I found that steady driving on good fuel gave me around 35 mph on an steady drive. My X type was taken by two gentlemen who later was placed in a Royal House for 8 years. I never got my car back! Regards, Peter [ A bit older]
  13. Welcome to the cub, Dawne. We often stay in Dorset for a week - favourite holiday town. Look out for me this year. Enjoy you Jaguar, Regards, Peter.
    I don't think that this would be a problem, Ken. Regards, Peter.
  14. Welcome to the club, Robert. I wish I could come over to get in your cars and enjoy a drive. I will just use my 2007 S Type and enjoy here. Regards, Peter.
  15. Welcome to the club, Roisin. Have you any reason why the engine is dead? That would help. Regards, Peter.
  16. Welcome to the club, Marie. Enjoy the ride. Regards, Peter.
