Catalyst fail.

Post by steviegtr » Wed Oct 09, 2019 6:09 pm

Mil light came on last night so call Jaguar assist with roof button. He's just been out & seems like No 1 Catalyst below threshold. Says probably needs a new Cat at one side. Booking into Dealers tomorrow. Car under 3 years old so I assume it will be no charge.

Update. Car booked in at Hatfields, Wakefield in 12days time. Asked about a loan car. They are giving me a E-pace which I look forward to driving, having had a Evoque. They say they'll need car for a few days so maybe they will put a new Catalytic converter on. Has anyone had to have this done on a F-type. Assist guy said it's not one he's come across on the V8.

No symptoms. The car drives fine & dealer says ok to use until it goes in. They did say they may need it for a couple of days. It was the Jaguar assist guy that said it needed a new cat. I must say I was surprised when he said that & thought it would just be a sensor fault. Car only done 19800 miles.

Update. Went out in car tonight & the engine light as now gone out. It has happened twice since ownership. 1st time in April this year 2 weeks into ownership. Callout said same as this time, bank 1 catalyst under threshold. Code P0420-00. This time he left the light on so the dealer could see it. Just hope they do something other than say well it's ok now. Which it clearly is not. Have the 2 print out sheets to take with me. Anyway fancied driving round in a Epace for a bit. Plus I won't be bothered if it rains.

Had the car in at Hatfields today & it is the No 1 Catalytic converter that has gone. New 1 with all the bits ordered £1000. Glad it's still under warrantee. At least I can still use the car till next Tue when it's booked in. They loaned me a new'ish 19 plate XE very nice car to drive. 2.0 petrol.
