    Car started to get a little warm last night on the way home. When I turn the ac on the fan does not speed up, so I think the Hydraulic Fan Actuator (xw4z-3783-ca) has went out. Ordered one last night, got an e-mail from the dealer. back ordered! Send another e-mail asking how long he expect, he stated not one in the entire country? WTF!

    So I guess I have a 2 ton paper weight in my driveway with no way to get parts to get it fixed.
    Anybody know where I can get one of these actuators?

    Yep, I saw that on ebay. I think that maybe the only option.
    I do not call Tasca or FPG. but neither one show it available on their website.

    I wonder if this is another LS part that is going/gone away?

    I really hope not! I ordered that pump off ebay, just one left.
    Thought about it for a few minutes, just the cost of the actuator alone was $200 (if it was not on back order), so for an additional $55 I get a slightly new pump. I think I would call that a win! Hope the pump and the actuator are both good.

    I see Tasca has rebuilt pumps forsale so they have to have actuators in order to be able to rebuild pumps. That is the confusing part.

    My car only has 159,000 miles, I was REALLY hoping to get a few more years out of her.

    Did Jaguar use this system too at some point in the history of the S-Type, (or any other model)?

    You can always convert to electric fan. That is my plan if it comes to that, after changing out 2 actuators, last one being 2 years ago.

    I have been able to loosen up the actuator and get it to work again by replacing as much of the fluid as possible with TransTune for a couple weeks. I have a 2 yr old actuator in my LS right now and now with every oil change I suck out as much fluid as I can and replace it with new synthetic. This always keeps relatively good fluid in the system. The old never smells old and burnt either.

      That's actually a good preventative idea. I do the same to my power steering fluid reservoir every 6 months.

      Got the pump I order off Ebay in the mail yesterday...guess what I received...a POWER STEERING PUMP! OMG...are you kidding me! Does anybody look at the parts they ship before they ship them! These morons finally answered my e-mail this afternoon and said they are sending the CORRECT PUMP...I guess I will be waiting another week!

      I hope you do better than I did a bit ago with some electronic equipment. I needed the USB version, and they sent the RS-232 version. I sent it back and they said they'd send the correct one. They sent RS-232 again. We went back an forth a while, and I offered that they could send me a picture of the box for the next one, and I could tell them if it said in big letters on the front of the box "RS-232" or "USB." After that, it was an ordeal to get a refund.

      Anyway, I did send them a message about there being no fan pump on 2003 to 2006. No response.

      Yeah, I also do that with the PS fluid when I do the fan fluid. I am already in there, so why not.

      The Ebay seller send the right pump this time with actuator attached. Going to put the new actuator in this weekend and change out the fluid. I hope, fingers crossed, this fixing the fan problem. Keep you all posted.

        Update
        Replaced the actuator saturday morning. That was a bitch to get off, hope I do not have to do that again anytime soon. I was able go get about 1 quart of fluid drained and replaced with new Ford Mercon-V. The fluid did not look bad but smelled a little burnt. I let it idle for 20 minutes with the AC on high, no overheating issues. Have only drove it about 4 miles. Have not drove it to work yet.

        A week later update.
        Been driving the car over a week now and it has not overheated, so I call that FIXED.
        I think I will take the old actuator and clean it with brake cleaner and see if I can get it unstuck and working again as a backup, since the actuators are still on backorder.

          I converted my 2000 model LS to an electric fan. It has a fan from an '03 LS 2nd gen. My fan is just run from a basic all-or-nothing temperature probe/relay, but it has worked well for 2 years.
