And the car gets stranger! Coming home from work the fault code [engine warning light went off]. Several starts later seems to have not returned. Maybe the car realised I was close to putting it in a crusher????

Or maybe the slipping reluctor ring just slipped back to it’s original position

A Specialist said that's what has most likely happened. Now its a case of finding if there is a way of securing it in place so it does not happen again.

Has anyone else been able to do this; fix the reluctor on the exhaust camshaft without resorting to spending 2K?


Thanks

I was wondering if it is that ring that has slipped how it missed out on the recall ? Also if it is the ring that is slipping I would have thought that it might be worth

contacting Jaguar to see if they might help out as a good will measure .

Thanks Geoff,

It was never cited as a recall. JLR simply repaired them when the need arose. I approached customer services and they politely said get lost.

The Dealer did offer me a payment plan which included interest! It would have meant replacing so many parts that didn't need replacing. to fit a new camshaft because of the reluctor ring. What I am hoping trying to find is a good old fashioned engineer that can resolve such a problem just by removing the rocker cover.

Regards

Is this a similar issue that other people have posted on another thread about camshaft position updates? I'm not familiar with which engines are involved as I'm new to being an owner of an XE.

In a way yes. Jaguar provided the H027 update which gave the sensor a greater degree of variation to record the reluctor ring positions as being accurate. However many people early in owning the XE reported the dealers were claiming cam chain stretch or even bent camshafts! The real culprit in most occasions was the reluctor ring!
