No oil leaks but I have a bad drive line vibration at around 50-55 MPH And again from 68-72 MPH .Dealer service manager has driven car and agreed there is a problem and is awaiting information from Jaguar technical. So not holding out too much hope of a quick solution from them given their poor track record so far..Another problem to add to the list for this new model.

Yes I had oil leaks in first two weeks mine was the front differential oil seal, jaguar as ever wanted photographs and took 48 hours to authorise the repair, but after it was completed all ok.

I have it confirmed that it is the front diff seal so will be done asap :(
hmm, Cat woman it might be a good idea to add this to the known list of faults....

with a new car the oil is so clean it looked like water and as I had a water leak from the defective header tank it was not easy to tell the two apart as I frequently park on rough ground not a pristine drive, it sounds like Alan's was easier to see, perhaps a more defective seal than mine?

Maybe something you all need to pay attention too..... hopefully not :shock: :roll:

Alan I hope Jag don't take 48 hours to authorise the repair as they did with mine resulting in it being off the road for a week.....

+1 for the failed front diff oil seal.
Pos.k how soon did yours fail mine was obvious within the first 10 days like Alan.

for the wider group hopefully this is one of those that as soon as its in regular use it will become apparent if its an issue and if hasn't happened early on you are likely to be ok

is it a faulty part or poor assembly I wonder? not sure which would affect more cars though....

Given I park in the street I'm not likely to happen across this, so I shall start placing some newspaper under the front end for a few weeks.

Blimey last time I had to do that was when I was 18, living at home, driving an MG Maestro and my parents giving me hell for dripping oil all over their driveway!!

:D :D yes I remember only to well the "joy" of various BL cars of that vintage :shock:

It only seems to be affecting a tiny number of cars (3 to date on the forum) so you are probably fine, but if you have chance in the morning to check, what you are looking for was in my case it was a small saucer sized deposit of what looked like water at first but on closer inspection had clear oil globules on top, almost like you would see after emptying a baby's bath water which had Johnson's baby oil in it. That has been 15years plus in my case since I have done that so the analogy might not stand up to scrutiny :roll:

Hi all, had a nice bloke enquire about my car this morning.... Turns out its.... Alan the founder of this post. I was getting some fuel on my way to a deer farm in Devon to get some antlers for ye old barn! He advised me to check that nothing was leaking out the old girl.... Can't see anything obvious in my usual parking place. He aslo had a pat for Annu the wolf in the back of the car.

Was feeling a little smug....I dont have ICTpro and my ICT was working without fault, got to 2400 miles with no squeaky back end, then spotted the oil spots this week.

Car has gone to Stratstone this morning, just had the call to say I am being transferred into Jaguar courtesy car as opposed to Stratstones as car is off the road awaiting a decision on the front differential.....

There is a Topix technical bulletin for front diff oli,leak so a recognised issue. Should be sorted soon I'd think

1.6l with the twin Webbers or the 2.0i with the fuel injection? And did your digital dashboard work (for more than a week?).

I also had a MG Montego Turbo and loved the insanity of that engine with a crap chassis that couldn't put the power down :D
