Question about Jaguar Cars & Trucks

I have a Jaguar XFR Sport 14 plate - I was told by the garage that I would need the cambelt changed on the next service which is now due. I thought it was a chain when purchased 3yrs ago.

I would definently Replace the timeing chain before it breaks. because if it does break when its running it will cause catasrophic failure. such as bending valves and possibly breaking a piston. every so many miles your chain should be replaced as with the belts. it is a safty precaution. A little money spent now will save you a lot later.
hope this is what you were looking for.

SOURCE: cambelt or chain

Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.

Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.

VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.

Had Cambelt & waterpump changed on my 55 plate citreon C4 1.4 vt. within 2weeks, a metal rattling noise occurred,the car cut out & lost all its oil.

It is possible that the cambelt was not tensioned correctly or the tensioner was not thightened correctly

I have a new transmission and brakes. also just changed oil. now i am being told i need to change fluid on diferential and metal shavings are coming off the cap. can this be possible? also they told me it...

I think they are taking you for a ride. The differentials should be check every year, but only to add oil. Yes some can die early, but there are differentials out on the road that are 40,50 years old and still running fine. I suggest you find another garage to go to, and next time some one says metal shaving, tell them to let you see and go to the vehicle and have them get some out for you. And if there were shavings, which I have seen, there would also be noise coming from the deferential, a low hum to clanking. To let you know shavings are metal slivers and not the normal wear that looks like gray mud.

Volvo s40 late 2003 105000km. Extra service price

Hi,you should change cambelt pully(there is a bearing inside pully before it worn out completely,it will cause high friction and heat to burn out your bell and rattling noise).buy cambelt pully from the dealer then take it to the garage ask them to put it in for you (labor about 30.00 dollars)...the rest is ok to wait until 150.000 miles.
good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:

Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

How many miles be change cambelt on peugeot 307 on a 51 plate

you should change the timing belt at 60,000 miles or every four years (which ever comes first) this is because the belt will deteriorate due to stress,temperature,ect. replace the belt tensioner while tou are there..

Jaguar glow plug problem

The Glow plug coming on, and the car going into limp home mode, is a default safety feature that occurs when the engine management system picks up any kind error message from the many sensors now used on the car.
I've found the glow plug light problem with my Jag, it was the air filter. Apparently Jaguar servicing change it every 3rd service (not a good idea). I changed mine, it is a new car. I had the EPR valve cleaned and a major diagnostic carried out by a local garage (who had the Jag diagnostic software). It turns out I also need a new Turbo; the actuator is sticking (£759.00 plus 3 hours labour). But hey, the main limp home mode problem is fixed and I can drive my Jag confident it will accelerate when press the gas.
