So my 2017 FPace S with 22K miles is requiring coolant...the dash light came on,..twice now in it's short life.

Does anyone know if this is a known characteristic of this engine ?
Has anyone else experienced this and can I simply top it off with a quality brand of coolant, or is this a must visit to the dealer?

Hi

I had the low level coolant warning on a 1hr drive.

Did not panic as the engine temp remained normal.

Saw some white smoke when I arrived home (not much), open the bonnet to cool down the radiator and checked the coolant level: very low.

Saw some red coolant on the ground.

Refilled a bit and will be on my way to Jaguar on Monday: the car has just been serviced (3 years) 48hrs ago.

I Also noticed something new: the alternator belt making noise when strongly accelerate: its a first (might be something else).

They (Jaguar service) did not update the GPS either, some (new) roads confused the GPS while driving (new = 1 year rd).
I also wanted to have a roof rack: what a let down : unless it is installed by the factory, there is no option, I mean absolutely no option. Tried all suppliers to get some sort of universal system. They all said the same: this car is not allowing anything. Jaguar suggested to buy another car for my boards or to get a new jag.

the last but not least, I want to change a whole set of tyres (40K/3 years): only the continental can fit: no tyre supplier would install anything else as specs from Jag says any other brand will damage the differential... ouch $450 per tyre...

I love my car but it’s a costly love...

The Belt noise could be caused by the coolant leak. Getting coolant or even coolant in steam form on a belt will cause it to squeal a bit.

My warning light for low coolant came on and I added the orange stuff to the line. 1 month later the same thing. There was nothing on the ground around my 17 F-PACE so I thought to look at the dipstick to see if it was getting into the engine. No Dipstick. It was going in for scheduled maintenance so they diagnosed that the coolant WAS leaking into the engine warping both heads. It had overheated in 2019 and this is the after effects. I only have 38,000 miles and its garage kept so this is very disappointing. It has been at the Dealer for 2 weeks with no word on when it will be done. They did give me a 2020 to drive while mine is there so no complaints with dealer or Jaguar warrantee..so far. I really love the car but not sure I want to keep it after warrantee is up. Any similar issues or thoughts??

ouch! I've been behind the long term costs and annoyance of issues after an overheat (random misfires despite replacing everything from fuel pump, lines, injectors, valves, plugs, gaskets, etc) and agree, unless they're replacing the entire engine or extending at least that portion of the warranty it's not worth it. I'd see if they're willing to work out a trade-in/trade-up to the 2020 (or 2021) if that's what you're looking for.

what did they do about the initial overheat? or anything mentioned during oil changes? coolant has a pretty obvious effect on oil. then again they pump it out these days so maybe they never even saw the used oil? I'd be worried about excess wear on internal parts, were there excess metal shavings on the drain plug?

It overheated due to the belt breaking because the supercharger pulley wheel froze up. They replaced supercharger and belt along with water pump and pulley wheels.
Your right, they just dump the oil out without seeing if it has a milky color. I’m leaning towards another make of car. My first Jag and I do love the car but this will not go away if the block isn’t swapped out as well. No idea about shavings as I haven’t talked to the mechanic...yet. Thanks for reply...

Did you purchase the car new? If so, you should have at least a year left on the warranty. Let them fix it, then decide how you want to replace it. Me, in your shoes (as I almost am), would just get a new one to keep as long as the warranty covers it. But I can understand your reluctance to get another.

Dealer called me today to say they are replacing the entire engine. It’s under warranty so my only question is.....do I get another 5/60k? I can live with that but I will know more next week!!

nice! that's exactly what I would expect and hope for in the same situation, especially if it's potentially been churning sludge for the past year or two

I would guess they'd offer 60k on the engine, but definitely ask. it wouldn't be too much of a reach to ask for an extended/certified warranty too

just curious how much is a new engine if it shows the price on the invoice?

I have a 2021 F-Pace P400 that has consumed almost 3 quarts of coolant in 16K miles and the dealership keeps telling me that is it "normal usage". They pressure test and find nothing. When I park the Jag, you can smell the sweet smell of coolant, but there isn't a leak anywhere so I continue to think I have a head gasket, cracked block or some other issue that hasn't nuked my engine yet... nothing on the dipstick either and I check obsessively. My RR Velar P340 is doing the same thing at a slightly slower rate. Same dealer examined it, same story - "it's normal, we see it with all these V6 engines. Just top it off and it will be fine"

I've owned more than 25 cars, and I've never experienced this issue, and I've never had a dealer try to convince me that it's normal. Time will tell, or I may trade these glycol sipping twins off before it becomes a bigger headache.

Cheers and Happy New Year!

I just had a coolant leak and the pipes below the supercharger were leaking. The coolant leaked onto the engine and evaporated, causing "smoke" to rise out of the hood. There wasn't any coolant leaking on the ground because it was all leaking on the engine. They had to remove the supercharger and replace the pipes - a big job. $2,000 later it's all fixed up.

I have a 2017 F-Pace with the coolant level warning turned into a new water pump and replaced hoses (one really expensive hose due to being under the supercharger). Issue is still ongoing I will keep you posted, but check you hoses.

I Believe I experienced similar thing over the weekend. I have a 2017 prestige, I called dealer and they said they have some CPO warranty. You think it will be covered or it will be out of pocket ?

My guess is it will be out of pocket but I don't know for sure. I'm way out of warranty so I don't take it to the dealer any more.

I have a 2017 First Edition with 40k miles and just had the Y-Pipe coolant failure under the supercharger which seem to be a common issue for many of us. My shop is quoting $1,400 parts and labor (including 6.5 hours labor. Wondering if that sounds right?

Mine was done a couple of months before the warranty expired, so I can't comment on the cost, but the labor hours look about right (and probably straight out of the book).

Just had most of my coolant system replaced. Water pump, various lines, and gaskets. Dealer covered the costs but the bill ended up being 1,800$ to include resealing the right side timing chain cover.

$1400 sounds about right, or maybe even a little on the low side. You're probably getting off fairly easy. That's one of the few known weak spots in the supercharged V6 platform and shows up on several Jag and LR models.
