JAGUAR RECALLS LATEST XF, XK OVER FUEL PUMP

By Mark Kleis

The 2010 Jaguar XF, as well as the 2010-2011 XK models equipped with the 5.0-liter engine have been recalled due to a faulty electric fuel pump which may cause the engine to unexpectedly cut out.

The issue only effects the models equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 engine, and the issue occurs as the fuel pump is not properly activated due to the failure of the fuel pump relay not energizing after a vehicle start-up cycle. As a result, the lack of fuel could cause the engine to cut out unexpectedly, potentially causing a safety concern.

As many as 5,048 Jaguar vehicles could suffer from this issues.

Jaguar will begin fixing the issue on August 30, 2010.

2010-2011 Jaguar XK, XF To Be Recalled For Stalling Issue

By Bengt Halvorson

2010 Jaguar XK CoupeEnlarge Photo2010 Jaguar XFREnlarge PhotoMore than 5,000 late-model Jaguar vehicles are being recalled for an issue that might cause the 5.0-liter V-8 engine to stall with little or no warning.

In certain Jaguar XK Coupes or Convertibles from the 2010 or 2011 model years, or in 2010 Jaguar XF models, the fuel pump and fuel pump relay may fail to operate as they should after a restart, leading the engine to stumble, then stall.

The problem, which is considered a safety issue, and thus reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), doesn't appear to be linked with any mechanical failure. To remedy the problem, dealers will perform a simple software upgrade.

Such issues are very unusual for Jaguar in recent years. The brand has a greatly improved reputation for reliability and trouble-free ownership and has continued to do well on most well-respected metrics of quality and satisfaction. Just last month Jaguar placed second among overall brands in J.D. Power's annual APEAL study.

The issue, which we noted through a weekly summary from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, was reported by the automaker on July 21.

According to the official NHTSA brief, the recall will begin by August 30, and any owners with questions should contact Jaguar at 800-452-4827.

Jaguar recalling 2010-2011 XF, XK models over potential fuel starvation

by Chris Shunk (RSS feed) on Jul 27th 2010 at 10:31AM

Jaguar's new 5.0-liter V8 has seen its fair share of praise since its introduction, but even the best petrol mill is worthless without fuel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website indicates that 5,048 of the automaker's 2010 and 2011 XF and XK models equipped with the 5.0-liter engine are being recalled for a faulty fuel pump relay.

The problem can reportedly occur if the in-tank electronic fuel pump isn't properly activated when the fuel pump relay is energized at vehicle start-up. When this happens, the engine could receive inadequate amounts of fuel, resulting in the vehicle abruptly stalling with little or no warning, which would potentially result in an unscheduled (is there another kind?) accident.

Beginning August 30 of this year (or possibly earlier) owners of affected vehicles can simply take their faulty cat to the nearest Jaguar store for a free software update that should fix the issue. Hit the jump to read over the NHTSA press release.
