Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?

Answers :

You will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

I changed the oil but my dip stick is showing way too much oil, what is going on? At first I had a hell of a time getting the drain plug out, but finally did. Drained the oil, replaced the filter, replaced the plug (with a New one). Now dip stick shows too much oil. Tried to drain more oil out but dip stick still showing too much oil. Did I do something wrong?

Hello, I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4.0 I-6) and I happened to look underneath it this morning to discover a minor damp spot on the garage floor. Upon further looking, I noticed a couple of oil drops on the drain plug. I looked further up the pan & noticed it was also damp all the way near the oil filter. I did an oil change about a month ago & may not have wiped it all completely, but that should have dissipated by now. I've been doing some research & came up with some possible pro


Hello Michael; This may sound too simple but I've done this before and know for a fact that often times a oil filter gasket will stay on the mount when being removed, then you've got two on there and it will leak easily. Another thing to check is you ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1985 toyota r22 pickup(manual trans.) when i get on freeway and get up to about 45mph, in 3rd gear, the engine starts to bog down and i can not go any faster. it sat for 4 years with gas in tank.

The problem may be the gas that sat in the carburator. Gas goes bad faster in smaller quantities. Have a look inside to see if you have "gummed" up passages, or jets. Don't forget to change the fuel filter.\015\012Good luck. (I have an 89, and ... 1985 Toyota Pickup

Had tappet cover gaskets replaced and new spark plugs, next day it started to blow blue/white smoke, worse on start up. Its never smoked before, in fact every clean tail pipe, but now it black with all this smoking. Could the PCV valve been damaged in some way while doing this work?
