Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

2 Answers

I changed the spark plugs on my 4.0 2000 Jaguar S-type, once completed everything sound good. Several days later I notice the engine had a miss. What can have cause this miss? In addition, the spark plugs gap size NGK recommended was 0.52, but the Owners manual indicates 0.05. Which one should I have used? I;m just concern with engine performance.

    Please be advise, I changed coil on cylinder one and regapped spark plugs to 0.52 and no more engine hesitation. The 2000 S-Type 4.0 Jaguar is running great!

Use the .05. And if you didn't replace the plug wires there's a good chance that it separated it when you we're taking it off. You can replace the wires or get up ohmmeter and check the continuity of the wires

SOURCE: 2001 jaguar s-type 4.0 oil in spark plug area

Hi bravo956
i also have the same problem regarding the oil leak. this is due to the spark plug gasket leaking and you will need to replace them. they are circular gaskets about 1.5 inches across that fit to the underside of the rocker covers and prevent oil from seeping down the long spark plug hole. when i investigated my leak i assumed it was just the rocker cover gasket that was leaking but once everything was removed it is obvious.

SOURCE: jaguar s-type restricted performance

I had the same problem. Restricted performance and running rough at 3000 RPM. I have an OBDII code reader and found that the problem was in the air mass flow sensor, which is just after the air filter. I pulled this out and found it was dirty and had butterfly wings in it. The last shop where I had the oil changed replaced the filter for me but put in the wrong size. Close but no cigar. Bought some *** Flow Sensor cleaner at auto store and fixed the problem. Get an OBDII reader with the ability to erase the codes. Comes in real handy.

SOURCE: How to change spark plugs on 2001 Jaguar S-Type

Once the plastic covers over the valve covers have been removed you will see the coli packs. Remove the 2 screws holding these in place and this will give you direct acess to the spark plugs.

2004 linconl aviador Have code p0301, p316 I


If you are saying everything is ok when the engine first starts but number one starts to miss when at operating temp. Sounds like the number one coil has developed a internal crack that opens up when hot or at operating temp..causing a miss.change it.but before changing the coil check the spark plug wire it may be breaking down when hot..good luck

How do I change the plugs on my 2002 jaguar x-type 2.5 v-6?


Disconnect the negative battery cable. Then start at the front of your engine. Pull the spark plug wire off the spark plug from the boot that covers the spark plug. Remove spark plug from engine block, take new spark plug, check for proper gap and adjust if necessary, and then install new one into block. Repeat for the rest of the plugs. Re-connect negative battery cable and you should be good to go.

P0420 Error code, I had the sparks plugs replaced in dec...now one is misfiring again.


i dont know if this 402 code is a miss code on a jag but usually miss codes are p0300 codes. if you are hearing a ticking and you own a spray bottle, an old mechanics trick is to mist water on the plug wires while the engine is running preferrably in the dark.

Engine that misses


Will be a coil or spark plug but figuring out which 1 is the problem. Best to all because if 1 \is staring to fail others will be not far behind, also cheaper to do all at once labour wise

Missing on acceleration


Remove the air cleaner/intake boot, remove the wipers and upper cowl, remove the crossbeam suport bar (under wiper cowl)
Remove the throttle bosy connectors, remove the bolt on the front lower suport bracket, remove the bolt on the lower side bracket (below intake shock side)
Rthe 8mm nuts on the back where you will see a round black metal bracket, remove the 8 intake 8mm bolts, note they are different sizes, short and long and also they have a rubber washer that sticks to the intake, take care not to loose/drop any of these, especially in the engine.
Life the intake, you dont actually have to remove it completely.
Replace the 2 intake strip gaskets and if it is missing is probably the coil onplug that is bad no the spark plug.
