Jaguar Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is Gavin can I help you with this ?
Yes the timing chains are a big issue but you say the next day it would not turn over did you drive it home then it just would not turn over the next morning ?
A timing chain 90% of the time fail while running it would also turn over via the starter motor and just not start. Are you confident around engines to do some simple checks .
Could you check the engine turns over by hand for me.
So what happened when you first tried to start the car did it turn over at all .
Are you just getting a click sound.
Like a metal on metal screech.
That sounds more like starter motor / ring gear I really could do with you turning it over by hand but if you are not confident with doing that that is fair enough.
Do you have a set of large sockets.
ok If i give you a $5 phone request I could give you my phone number and I can hear the noise you do not have to it is just an offer .
Can i have your phone number please.
