Had our 2 lt JTS for two weeks now, can anyone advise with the following (might not be anything unusual for these cars!) itís done 36k & is a 04 plate
Slow to heat up - Or at least the temp gauge would indicate it is, Iíve started from cold checking the top hoseÖwhich remains cold for a long while then warms quickly as the stat opens, I just canít help thinking itís far too long?
Also, temp gauge never reads above the mark set between 50 & 90 does anyone know what this mark is?
Fuel gauge - Light comes on, add £30ís worth drive around light still on although the needle has moved upÖa bit. Park overnight next day itís up over half! Over a week later (short journeys) it still in almost the same place, go out today start up itís still the same, then 5 mins later itís down just below the half mark!!
Gear change - Quite stiff could the linkage require lubrication? The box also tends to be at bit stiff selecting gears, improves as it warms.
Engine - Idles (more so cold) not the smoothest, again this might me a characteristic...Iím I just being too picky?
How does the JTS engine differ from the TS, does it have any known weakness/odd characteristics (cam belt aside)
Is there a workshop manual available?
