JAGUAR S-Type - S-Type Service Schedules
I have a 2.5-litre S-TYPE, and the service schedules in the Owner's Guide (JWM March 2007) make no mention of timing belt or chain and tensioner replacement. Is there a Jaguar specified replacement schedule?
The V6 models have a self-adjusting chain that is designed to last the life of the engine. We recommend replacing 4.0-litre V8 chains and tensioners to rectify a design fault, not as general maintenance. The only Jaguar engines currently requiring a timing belt change are the Diesel V6s.
