4.2 engine in XK and S type

(XJCStu) #1

looking at this car for purchase. is the 4.2 from 2005 the same as the xk8 and have all the timing chain tensioner issues, A drum transmission issues, etc been taken care of by Jaguar? is this the ZF 6HP26 in this car?

The 4.2L is the same as the XK8 and has the metal (latest) tensioners design so no issues there.

All 4.2s should have the ZF 6 speed transmission. It is said to be more dependable than the Ford-sourced 5 speed unit in the earlier models.
