Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
Is this a V6 or V8 engine? How many miles on the vehicle in question.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
V8 108,000
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok the V8 engine is very strong and we don't see a lot of major issues. Of course this is true on vehicles that are properly maintained. I see engines go over 150k. The biggest problem is the timing chain tensioners fail. I also see cooling system problems that creep up around 100k.
