When cam belts, ie rubber, became the norm many people shunned those on favour of chain driven. The only problem with the XE is the designer who put the timing chains at the back of the engine. In theory they should easily last the life of the engine. As I mentioned my old MG Magnette was well over the 100000 mile mark when I sold it. I must admit it had regular oil changes at 3 month intervals and always had done. My grandfather owned it before me and bought it from the man, who when new, let my grandfather look after it for him. I bet that engine went on for another 100000 miles. It had an oil pressure of 45-50 psi all the time we owned it. I personally think that the 2 year oil change it a load of rubbish and it should be done annually. That is why, if, chains are failing, it could be the cause.

I don’t know how common having the chain at the back of the engine is, but I know it’s the same mistake BMW have made. Like you say they have every intention that the chain “should” last, but those BMW engines in particular were very unpredictable.

I think the BMW issue made Watchdog in the UK, but don’t think BMW ever did anything to rectify the issue officially.

Edit: found the watchdog BMW info

May be some argument to stick to Jag official servicing and repairs based on BMWs response, as they were only helping owners who’d strictly used BMW official garages at the time.

Update time...

Car went into garage today & I was advised that the error indicates an issue with the catalyst gases.

The Catalytic Converter has been changed & they don't think its an issue with the sensors.

The dealer has said that they don't know what the problem is but that they will continue to try & get to the bottom of the issue.

I'm wondering if its time to call it a day & return the car ??

Its been 6 weeks since I bought the car & I've had it for around a week during that time.

They have increased the warranty from 12 months to 24 but even with that I'm becoming concerned.

Whatcha all reckon?

EGR valve possibly or the sensors in the exhaust. Give them another chance but tell them if it's not fixed this time then you will reject it as you have lost faith in the car. I bet it is something simple that is so simple it's overlooked. Tell them that you want a Jag FOC on loan until it's fixed. The fact that they have extended the warranty is a point of them trying to sort it out. Get that in writing as in two years it will be forgotten.

They have loaned me one of their Jags since this started.

It's a Jaguar dealer & the extra warranty will be added onto the 12 month Jaguar Approved Warranty that the car came with so will be in black & white on their systems with a confirmation letter to me.

I've been happy with the service from the dealer, its just the car that's been playing funny beggars :roll:

Well at least they seem decent with you and that extra warranty is worth it. I am sure they will get to the bottom of it and if not they will involve the specialist technicians that come from Jaguar. They will have to fix it anyway if you reject it, so they can sell it on.

Code P049B. Mine came on one day after I refilled AdBlue (Coincidence?). Decided to delete it before my vacation drive - after 600km the engine management light came up, drove the 600km back, car behaved normal, checked the Code: P049B again. Havent been to a garage yet, there is no Jaguar expert in quite some range (Austria). I don't know if my local garage can do anything: Im not convinced in them findind the issue and I don't want to replace all the maybes that can cause the problem. Drove the car solid 24k without any issues (86k on the clock). Any suggestions what to do?

Thanks for the link. Does somebody has experience in changing the egr valve? Expenses etc.? Is it visible when opening the hood or is located underneath the engine? Would like to check wires etc. before talking to my garage.
