After a number of years it is possible to remove over 1mm of the face, so reducing the overall thickness of the flywheel. 1mm (0.040in) does not sound much, so what’s the big problem, I hear you say?

If either the manual adjuster needs attention or a clutch cable’s automatic adjuster fails, then the clutch could slip. This means that, under hard acceleration with the clutch pedal released, the engine revolutions will rise, without the road speed increasing accordingly. Clutch faults like this can result in the expense of replacing the entire clutch kit, when only the clutch cable needed either adjustment or renewal.

Rectifying clutch faults can be expensive, time consuming and inconvenient. On most front-wheel-drive models, replacing the clutch kit often requires the transmission and part of the suspension to be removed. On some cars, because space can be at such a premium, it means that a technician might have to remove the entire power-plant.

A clutch cable can also snap without warning, rendering the pedal useless. As the clutch kit relies on friction to work, it does wear out gradually and so an adjuster is provided in many vehicles. Sometimes, an automatic adjusting mechanism is integral with the cable. Alternatively, clutch cable adjustment can be performed manually.

Jaguar X-type short circuit problemSome models built between August 2003 and August 2004 had insufficient clearance between the battery's positive cable and the number one cylinder fuel injector. This could cause the cable to chafe on the injector nut and result in a short circuit.

If the car was stored for more than a year, drain and refill the system using a name brand antifreeze. Use a mixture of 30% to 50% antifreeze (no more than 50%). Check the hoses for cracks, especially around the clamps. Give all the hoses a good squeeze; any hoses that are suspect should be replaced.

Step on the clutch and try to engage reverse gear. If you can, lift off the clutch and back the car out into the driveway and stop. Try first gear. With the clutch working normally, you are ready for a short test drive. If you cannot get the car in gear, and the clutch is moving as it should, the clutch friction disc is very likely stuck to the flywheel, the pressure plate or both.

Check the knockoffs or wheel nuts for tightness/torque. If the car is on jack stands, remove them and get the car back on the ground. Make sure the handbrake is set or chock the wheels.

Jaguar X-type sensor problemA number of X-types built between February and March 2004 had sensor issues. The yaw-rate sensor has been known to internally delaminate, which could result in uneven and unexpected application of the brakes.

The simple diagram (pic 7) shows the ‘Guillotine’ action if not done correctly: the pin will shear. Then, there is the common sight of a new pin fitted into a worn cross-shaft hole (pic 8), not difficult to see the pitfalls here. Even at Jaguar in the 1960s, the service departments would drill out the 120/140 cross-shafts to fit the larger parallel XK 150 locking pin considered a safer bet (especially as the stronger clutches were also causing extra stress).

As mentioned earlier, Jaguar experienced complaints from owners of XK 150s when new. One modification put into produc-, tion (rather crudely) was to make a spring-assisted clutch pedal: once pushed to a certain point, a spring-loaded lever assembly helped pull the pedal further in its travel, easing the leg pressure necessary: crude but effective and cheap to introduce or retro-fit.

Let the engine warm up without revving the engine or “blipping the throttle” but don’t leave the choke fully engaged; ease it in as the engine warms up. Take a good look around, checking obvious problems. There may be smoke as the various components heat up. You can verify thermostat function by feeling the top radiator hose. When the thermostat opens, the top hose will warm up quickly. As the systems come up to temperature, keep an eye open for leaks.

Jaguar XK clutch cable fault

If you are experiencing XJ clutch problems they can be recruited to replace your Jaguar vehicle's clutch if your clutch cannot be repaired. Clutch wear should be monitored so that you are able to keep your clutch in working order and you can keep abreast of when you might need to recruit a reliable Glasgow vehicle mechanic to perform a XK clutch replacement.

Check the fluid in the clutch reservoir. Top us as needed (or change if the car has been stored for more than 18 months). If low, check the hose and slave cylinder for leaks. Have someone depress the clutch pedal while you observe the movement of the slave cylinder pushrod. If the pushrod is not moving, or moving only a little, bleed the clutch system. Fluid inside the dust boot of the slave cylinder indicates a failed seal in the slave, and that needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
