  1. hi upper intake manifolds cant leak into engine intercoolers can, which could be proved by plugging off the two coolant pipes flow and return to the intercoolers from the radiator car will still run fine, but inlet temp would be higher, but would prove a point, or you could just pressure test each intercooler disconnect the two pipes to each intercooler, plug one pipe and put compressed air on each one, 1.2 bar should do it, as its the same as the pressure relief on the expansion tank, isolate the air, pressure should stay constant and not drop, if it drops then intercooler has failed, easy fix if its coolant though it should be using water, by the sound of it lots, if its oil burning will use oil, blue smoke oil and white smoke water cheers Joe
  2. hi I'd still try replacing the pcv only other thing is worn piston rings, piston ring end gaps too big though if its doing it only on first start up, there must be something on the heads, because like when valve stem seals fail, the oil weep through when it stands, so if yours smoke on start up, there must be something still passing from the heads cheers Joe
  3. hi if you car has H7 bulbs they should be plug and play, but you usually cant fit the rear cover because there much longer, or you have to cut holes in them, also without the cover they will also steam up on damp days also they may also fail mot, depending on your mot guy, officially they should and so would fitting hid bulbs in the past found fitting ring xenon 150 plus bulbs work well with halogen headlight cars, brighter and mot friendly cheers Joe
  4. hi usually valve stem seals, did you use genuine jaguar ones, some after market ones are really poor quality could also be the crankcase pcv, it controls the pressure in the crankcase, they stick as they get old and cause the pressure to rise in the engine case and cause oil to be pushed past the piston ring and smoke its on the left side of the engine and is like a round disc this is a common problem on higher miles cars cheers Joe
  5. hi centraling is done with tracking usually, so I would get tracking, wheel alignment checked first cheers Joe
  6. Hi All Jaguar Meet at RAF cosford today Good day out, stayed dry at least, great selection of Jaguars took some pics and made a slideshow Cheers Joe
  7. hi I tried philips and osram night breakers upgraded bulbs in my other car but they only lasted a few months I ended up with ring xenon 150, which are brighter and have lasted a good while now there not that expensive either at just over £20 cheers Joe RING BULBS EBAY
  8. Hi All Went to Festival of 1000 Classic Cars & Classic Motorcycle Show, Hosted by Cholmondeley Castle today. took some photo's and made a slide show, thought I would post it up great day and great weather today, plenty of cars to look at. cheers Joe
  9. Hi V130 will work on your car fine have you installed the second dvd with all the module calibration data files cheers Joe
  10. Hi Best place to sell is EBAY By far a larger audiance, take plenty of photos and any service history details sell it as classified ad or you will get stung with final value fees cheers Joe
  11. Hi If you look on ebay for radio code service, they can give a radio code off the serial number on the stereo for around a £1 cheers Joe
  12. hi your better off taking it to a auto box specialist, they will be able sort it if your working with them all the time there easy, car garages these days just want to plug in and reset it, they dont like taking stuff bits any more cheers Joe
  13. Hi These are common and usually caused by a low battery have you checked the battery voltage, should be above 12.5 volts, if the voltage is lower than this battery may need replacing also sometimes these faults caused by a low battery will need reseting with jaguar IDS/SDD before they will clear Ideally you need to get it plugged in to see what faults are listed, generic code readers will only read and clear engine codes, not gearbox, dsc or epb faults, I'd check battery voltage and make sure it does not drop rapidly, you have to wait 40 mins before the car sleeps and the current drop to about 30mA also diesels seem put strain on alternators and these can fail, causeing a short, making the battery voltage drop quick cheers Joe

    2004 S-Type 2.7D when attempting to start, nothing happens.

    Sometimes I get "Gearbox Fault", "DSC not available" and "Park Brake fault" come up as key switched on. If I cycle the auto gear lever these faults disappear but still will not start. OBD scanner records FAULT:00, PEND:02 These are shown as U0121 Lost communications with ABS control module & U0073 Control module communication bus off (generic) I have disconnected the battery overnight and charged fully but all is still the same

      Hi

      These are common and usually caused by a low battery

      have you checked the battery voltage, should be above 12.5 volts, if the voltage is lower than this battery may need replacing

      also sometimes these faults caused by a low battery will need reseting with jaguar IDS/SDD before they will clear

      Ideally you need to get it plugged in to see what faults are listed, generic code readers will only read and clear engine codes, not gearbox, dsc or epb faults,
