Common problems found with a Jaguar X-Type include oil leakage, transmission failure, overheating, failure of the front axle, and persistent coolant loss. Other problems include brake failure, cruise control problems and short circuit issues.
Degraded engine gaskets, faulty oil seals or wrong connections in a Jaguar X-Type can result in oil leakage in the engine oil pan gasket. Additionally, a defective oil drain plug, a worn-out oil filter or a missing oil filler cap can lead to oil leakage. Transmission fluid leakage, water leaking into the transmission, or an open circuit in the electrical system can cause premature automatic transmission failure.
A leak in the cooling system, mixing an incorrect concentration of coolant and distilled water, or a defective thermostat can cause the engine to overheat. When the two bolts holding the front axle become loose, they can lead to dislocation of the front axle from the transfer case. Small leaks at the coolant reservoir, a faulty radiator cap, a malfunctioning exhaust system, or failure of the water pump can cause persistent coolant loss.
Loss of fluid pressure in the brake system, a faulty anti-lock brake system modulator, or a worn-out master brake cylinder can result in brake failure. A blown fuse or an unadjusted brake pedal switch can cause failure of the cruise control system to switch on, engage or maintain a constant speed. A loose connection on a hot wire or on a neutral wire under a terminal in a junction box can lead to short circuit problems.
