You be the man, man. The fact that you started an entire Blog on some of the fine points of Jag Repair is very commendable!
I know that many of us here will look forward to continuing additions to your Blog - heck, I've Bookmarked it / you already.
Nice straightforward stuff.
Please know I look forward to you posting some videos for us D.I.Y. 'ers. I am sure the moderators here will agree that links to your blog, and maybe even some videos , will be a welcome addition to this (best of all of the availible) Jag forum. Even though most people here post when they have a problem, a few "How To" posts will be well received from everyone.
(You might even get your own "Sticky's" on the top of a page or two!)
Please don't be shy. Post like crazy.
Kindly know I was very interested in your "Reset the Windows" part of your blog. I have been loathe to post my question about a similar problem - having searched fruitlessly through the forum - maybe you can help.
Even starting a new thread in response would be nice - it would make it more "searchable" for others that have the same problemo.
My problem is the Sunroof. Just ever so much of a hint of wind noise. It just needs to seal up - "press up", if you will - against the seal just a gnat's a** more. I have held little strip of paper all around the window seal looking for the leak, to no avail. I cannot bring myself to light a smoke in the car to see if that might help me find it, and trying to drive while running my ear around the seal is out of the question.
Will your window reset work for this, or possibly make it worse? Is there a screw or something to make it seal ever-so-little tighter?
Your enthusiasm and attention to instructive detail are not going unnoticed on this forum. check the "Viewer Count" out some Friday Eve or Saturday morning, you'll see hundreds of people poking around here.
Im having A problem with my car. The video I will post is the same noise that my 2002 X-Type makes when i start it. I just changed the front 3 Ignition Coils and Spark Plugs. any Ideas on what the Noise is. Thank You
Link of the Video:
That sound in NOT clicking it's a low end knock,(rod bearing or wrist pin). Be very careful with the RPM you put on the engine or you will have a hole in the block or pan.This is my opinion from the sound on the video, I have heard this way to many times before and it never ends well.My opinion: Shit it off, drain the oil, refill with 10w40, no need to change the filter. Start it up BUT DON'T rev it up, just idle no more and see if the noise is less or same . In my opinion in either case it sounds like a engine rebuild but it might save you a tow bill if you can limp it to a reputable garage. With that loud of a knock if you hit 3000 rpm you will be sitting on the road side. Your knock sensor should be screaming at you but they only adjust the timing for bad fuel, carboned combustion cambers, ect) which is called a PING not a knock and is caused by uneven burning of fuel in the cylinders which leads to the pistons SLAPPING the bore walls and adjusting the timing helps stop this.It's not that simple but you get the idea.
