Just over 3 years old, under 30k miles, and my beautiful cat is dead! It was sounding like a machine gun under the bonnet! Jaguar mechanics have found bits of turbo and other debris in the oil. New engine required, now awaiting specialist RAC engineer to inspect it (RAC warranty) before hopefully giving the dealer the go-ahead to do the work. Absolutely gutted!:eek:

Hope it’s approved, an expensive job otherwise!

Do let us know the cost of repair and the limitations of the RAC warranty, it going to be expensive.

New engine will be £17k! RAC warranty won’t cover full cost of labour at my Jag dealer (think it was an option to protect a higher rate, will have to check), so potentially a £2k bill for me :oops:
Dealer is asking Jaguar to offer some help, fingers crossed! I’m now 3 weeks catless, over £1k in the hole for car rentals. RAC will cover 7 days car hire once the final approval is received…

Just reporting what they told me…noise started as a very soft thumping, we thought there was a jackhammer going somewhere in the distance, then more like a stone stuck in a tyre…gradually louder but sometimes going away. Very odd. Don’t suppose I’ll ever get much more detail from Jag, but I’d really like my car back sometime 😕

Update: the dealer asked Jaguar to help with the cost, and they agreed to pay for the replacement engine! So the RAC will save £15k, and I’ll save the £2k excess.😀
I’ve asked the RAC if they’ll help cover more of my hire car costs (over £2k so far!)…the policy only covers 7 days at £50/day. Hopefully as they’re dodging such a huge cost they’ll help me out…
Might get my cat back in about a week….fingers crossed!
