Daxter1987!

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.

Keep up the good work.

And some videos, man!

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: **** 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.

Agreed, The "Death Rattle"

So sorry.

At least the engines are cheap now. Don't rebuild - too expensive. Find one in an "X" that someone mistook for a sports-car and wrapped around a tree.

You should be back on the road for under $3K

We all bow our heads for your loss.

But I gotta ask ya - what color is the oil?

"Once they get a FEW years on them"? Sorry you are having issues, but you have a 2002 that is 15 YEARS OLD and who knows what kind of care was taken of it all these years. I can understand your frustration if you bought a used car recently and are having a number of issues with it, but to say the cars are POS because yours has problems seems pretty harsh. I bought mine used and drove it over 120,000 miles and it had about 165,000 miles on it when I sold it. It was one of the most reliable cars I ever owned and I think there are a number of other members on here that would say the same thing. I was very conscientious about its upkeep though. Pretty much any 15 year old car that hasn't been kept up-no matter what the brand- will have issues. And pretty much ANY 15 year old car will start to nickel and dime you as things just wear out over time.

How were you conned into buying it?

Bought from Jaguar of Louisville, Ky. From the service writer. Only 85k miles, with all service records... it's just a lemon and I can't recommend anyone buy a Jag based on my experience..

Bruce,

This is how I find air/water leaks in a car. Your shop Vac should have a blow side to it. Put one end of the hose in there and the other end in a window you have lowered a bit. Now with some tape and cardboard seal up the rest of the window. You will also need a spray bottle with water and some car wash soap in it. Turn the Vac on and spray around the car till you see bubbles. You just found it!

Simple

PS I have a knock sensor to do in May
PPSS I LOVE my old X-Types have three!

Sorry you are having all those issues. Almost sounds like something happened to it, like an accident. If the car was a lemon since day one I would have thought after 15 years with regular dealer service pretty much everything would have been sorted out by now. Generally with regular dealer service and low miles you have a very good chance of having a reliable car.

Any issues when you first drove the car?

Thumbs down Best of luck to all Jag owners....

I bought a near vintage Jaguar on Craigslist from one of the local Jaguar dealer's service advisors. I was assured it was a fine car, well maintained and regularly serviced... Well, if that is so then I find that even the best maintained Jaguar can and usually will develop into a multi- hundred dollar rolling money hole like this one. Beautiful car, but after my experience... don't buy a used Jaguar, you will probably be very sorry after your purchase. I am very disappointed in the car, the service by the local dealer, and will never look at a Jaguar the way I once did.
