Welcome to JA. My name is***** am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade. I will be happy to assist you today. Hopefully we can get this resolved quickly. Please do feel free to send me your name so that I know who I have the pleasure of speaking with. You will receive an offer of a phone call by the system, this only needs to be accepted if you wish to speak to me, I can otherwise continue to answer your questions via the thread. At times you may experience a delay in receiving my message, let me assure you I will give you my full attention, but may need time to type out the reply.
Do you have the registration number of your Jaguar please, I can get the details up then.
The system should send a link but if not we can work around this, give me a second please I will retrieve the details for your Jaguar.
I have attached an image of the engine on your Jaguar S-type, you will see on the image the numbers 5 & 6 these are the camshaft actuators and are I suspect the parts you are trying to identify. The camshaft sensors are number 3 & 4 which are at the rear of the engine.
I hope this answers your question but I want you to be 100% happy with the answer so do please feel free to ask any further details if there is any point which you are uncertain of, by replying to this thread. I am happy to help.
Thank you for using Just Answer
Just to confirm this sensor would go through the cam area and would fail as you have described.
Hi thank you for the picture Chris please give me a second to look closely at the picture.
Just to confirm it is the one I have circled red, this is the engine oil temperature sensor
Marked 12 on the previous diagram.
There should only be one, please give me a moment to recheck the diagram, I am just going to open up my jaguar programme on another computer to ensure I have the correct details for you, I have a feeling that this diagram is the earlier 2003 version, and changes were made.
Please bear with me one moment please
Thank you for your patience, I want to ensure I give accurate information.
Just opening the programme up now.
The fuel trim should be controlled and the crankcase will be regulated by the breather valve, but yes if the system is not sealed, this can have an adverse effect.
Yes is would need the inlet manifold and rocker cover removing, it the leak coming from the actual sensor or is it the seal around the rocker cover?
Thank you for waiting, I have the information now, this was only on the later engines, and is the variable timing actuator / solenoid.
The first image I sent was up to 2003, this engine didn't have the VVt system.
It is very likely just the O ring leaking as looking at a picture of the actuator, there should be no access for the engine breather system to enter the unit.
The number I have is AJ810570
