  1. I may have misled everyone by saying "uneconomical" to repair,apologies.I should have said that having looked at the cost of replacement i am not sure i want to payout. The indie i took it to did not charge me for stripping down the ancilliaries(and putting them back) to try and locate the leak. The decision for me is based on whether i wish to keep the car as there are so many of these out there,it will be a long time before these reach Maestro and Montego price rises Thanks for everyones input,maybe a 4.2 V8 should be next.
  2. Hi John, The leak is from the coolant pipes,it is down to the cost that will be involved to find which pipe it is. It requires a strip down to locate the offending items(s) and i am not prepared to take a risk in not knowing what the final cost will be. I have seen that these coolant pipes are notorious for poor quality and with one costing £250 and it could be one of many. I have tried k-seal but to no avail. Many thanks for your input. Graham
  3. After further investigation the car is uneconomical to repair,picking up the car today and then it looks like its on its way to the scrappy,great shame but thats life. Graham
  4. Hi, my s type diesel has a coolant leak which came up as an advisory on the mot. I have taken to the garage to be sorted but after it has been there a week they tell me that they can see the coolant leaking but are not able to tell where its coming from. I feel i maybe should take the car elsewhere and wondered if anyone is able to recommend a garage in the Nuneaton,Warwickshire area that has experience with this problem. Many Thanks Graham
  5. When i bought mine i had to go online and tax it before i drove it home. Kind Regards Graham
  6. Hi Joe, the P1641 is listed on the Jaguar Forums and also listed in the Jaguar documentation, ICARSOFT LR2 i use for decoder.,i use to use ids/sdd but no longer. Since i last posted i have been given the part no. XR8314B192AA. Thanks for responding. Graham
  7. Hi fellow enthusiasts. Further to my post with regards to my none starting V8 i have a code of P1641 which i believe is the main fuel power circuit. I have replaced the fuel pump and it primes ok,but fuel is not reaching the engine. I have checked the fuse and relay can you offer any idea of what i should check next. Many Thanks Graham
  8. Pump fitted no problem at all. Unfortunately my v8 will not start although does turn over and the fuel pump is priming. Pushed into my garage now until i decide what to do with it.
  9. I have just ordered a fuel pump for my s -type. The prices vary widely and the pump is also used in a Ford Focus. Take a look on Ebay and elsewhere of course, i was quoted from £180 - £220,secondhand,but have bought a new one for £42. It has arrived today and fitting it on Thursday so will update then. Good Luck.
  10. i use to use the Mongoose/Laptop system but i now use the Icarsoft as Joe has mentioned. Graham
  11. Hi Mark, i bought the items seperately some years ago and used the mongoose etc on a previous s-type. I see they say this is already setup which if true would be a massive bonus as i found out to set up took me many hair pulling hours. Once i set mine up it worked great,i set mine up for less than £100.00. Since coming back to s-type ownership i have bought a decoder which is doing a good job for me. Good Luck Graham
  12. Hi, i have the same diagnostic reader and when i had the same as yourself the reader told me which cylinder the coil pack had failed on.
  13. It could be a number of things but the favourite is the dcc valve. Maybe the best way is to plug in a diagnostic kit to see what codes are displayed. I had recently had a similar problem,i changed the dcc valve,regassed the aircon,changed the display,but now have a P1462 fault. Open circuit which i have as yet not been able to fix. If you can invest in a diagnostic reader as i have found in the long run can save money when other faults rear their head.
  14. Hi Pete, just to let you know i am unable to make Sunday. Have a great day. Graham
