Jaguar 3.0 V6 Engine Rebuild
Common Jaguar 3.0 V6 Engine Failures
The Jaguar 3.0 V6 engine is the same platform as the Land Rover 3.0 TDV6 and therefore suffers from the same failures.
Our most common engine rebuild at Dieselheads is the 3.0 TDV6 (306DT) platform, this engine suffers mostly from crankshaft issues much like the old 2.7 V6 engine. The crankshaft incorporates weak points between the rod bearing journals & counterweights, over a period of time these points are stressed to the point of failure and in some cases this can even snap. Other issues similar to the 2.7 V6 are fuel injectors & heat damaged/melted pistons.
We include a new OE crankshaft with all of our engine rebuilds on this. The crankshaft is a vital component that is essential to creating a high quality engine that will last.

Jaguar 3.0 V6 (306DT/AJD-V6)
In 2009 the 2.7 V6 platform was upgraded to the 3.0 V6 engine. This has an increased capacity and also incorporated twin turbocharging, oil pump, improved timing chain tensioner and surrounding oil galleries. This engine is fitted to the Jaguar XF, Jaguar XJ & is still being used in the Jaguar F-Pace. The block itself is slightly changed on the newer versions of the 3.0 V6 as well as the oil pump, this is known as the 306DTA engine.
