Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2003 Jaguar X-Type 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

My 2003 XType started making mechanical noises in the engine. The dealer thinks it has a bad bearing and would replace the engine because they don't repair them. Is a replacement necessary or is a repair possible and a reasonable alternative?

Do you
have the same problem?

Replacement bearings (i'm presuming crank) are possible. It all depends on how badly the bearings are and whether they have destroyed the crankshaft also?
