    Spare Wheel For XF

    I thought rotating tyres was a thing of the past due to tyres having to be fitted a certain way, that's why there's a directional arrow on them and if TPMS is fitted the wheel has to stay on the same axle it was fitted too.

    2007 S Type 2.7 Code P0404 & Restricted Performance

    I took my EGR valve off and cleaned it, but this has now been some years ago ! I did check if the plunger inside worked when under vacuum, lucky for me ive only had a few little issues which I have managed to fix myself. the last time I had bad smoke and lack of power was my boost pipe had blew off from the intercooler due to a jubilee clip had rusted,

    2007 S Type 2.7 Code P0404 & Restricted Performance

    Hi Peter, Many thanks for replying. I saw one of your previous replies to another member on here advising the use of Millers Eco Plus so I have some ready to use as soon as I fill up with fuel. Thanks again Keith

    2007 S Type 2.7 Code P0404 & Restricted Performance

    Hi Keith, I have tried the Wynns EGR cleaner with some intermittent success, but I was advised to use Millers Diesel Power Eco plus and it has worked a treat as I have had the code P0402 only once, and a quick squirt into the fuel tank did the job and it took just about 5 minutes running the car. Worth a try. Regards, Peter.

    Poor MPG, Lack of power

    Thanks Peter, have only had it 3 weeks and have put two different types of additive in, Wynns injector cleaner and today standard diesel redex. Have also checked the actuator and that seems to be fine. Was thinking injector as next one to look at, (I also have the dreaded whole car vibration between 50-70 which would suggest drive shafts, but could this be linked to injector issues too?)

    Which one should we go for?

    Seems by some of the replies, but sorry guys i don't think you've read the post properly. Sally is looking for a 5 year old car the links are showing specs for second generation from 2015, the video is showing pre facelift. I have recently bought a 2012 62 reg 2.2 premium luxury. I spent ages looking for the spec that I wanted. In my opinion this is the car to go for it has more extras then the luxury or sport versions for e.g heated front screen, power fold mirrors, to name but two. I'm not 100% sure but think with the portfolio, the only difference is piping on the seats and a few extra little trims. Also you have to consider economy, the 3.0 is thirstier and higher on Tax. I find my 2.2 with 200bhp powerful enough.
  11. Hi, I have been lucky enough to own my 2.7 S Type for 9 years without any major difficulties. In the last few weeks I have occasionally had the Restricted Performance light (amber) come on and the car then lacks acceleration and generally has a lack of overall power. If I switched the engine off and waited a few second before restarting, the problem didn't repeat. However, a few days ago this Restricted Performance came on and now refuses to go away. It always comes on once the engine is up to running temperature. I purchased the icarsoft i930 code reader and code P0404 is the result. This code is EGR valve related. I have since tried two tins of Wynn's EGR cleaner into the air intake and toward the end of this process, the cars rpm failed to increase during the treatment. The information on the tin says if this happens, stop the treatment and contact you workshop. I have checked my records regarding the service of my Jag and find that although the car has done 11000 (eleven thousand) miles since the last oil and filter change, the period has been almost two years. I generally don't use the car for short journeys but I'm wondering if the EGR problem could be related? Have any other members had similar problems and if so, what was the cause please?

Can anyone guide me through rebooting the unit? Thank you, Les. I have a problem with my sat nav/radio in my 2008 XF.

I think I need to reboot the unit, how do I do that? Can anyone help me please? Thank you, Les

    Poor MPG, Lack of power

    Hi Neil, and welcome to the club.. Black smoke is a fuel problem, possibly not enough air getting through. You could try an additive with your fuel. I use Millers Diesel power Eco Plus, but there are other such as Diesel Magic. I would also suggest using premium fuel. I did think that the 2.2 litre Diesel had a DPF -- the 2.0 litre diesel has not got one. A more expensive cure could be injector replacement. Regards, Peter.

    Poor MPG, Lack of power

    HI, and hello, neewbie here, have a 2.2 X type diesel, Manual 2007 (No DPF). Has lack of power, poor consumption and LOTS of black smoke on acceleration. Have cleaned and blanked (with 8mm hole) the EGR, have cleaned the intake manifolds, virtually all hoses for turbo cooler etc have been changed. Don't know what to try next??????? any help appreciated.

    lots of snags

    First off hello everyone. im having a neverending saga with my 2.2 auto, first the started to need a dpf regen every other day (car is used for lots of short journeys) which was done then it came up with a red dpf warning and ran rough, so off to the garage it went, they diagnosed a egr valve postion fault, i cleaned it freed it all up fault cleared and has stayed cleared. So today it went off for a dpf clean, however they have called to tell me that it not has a gearbox fault warning on the dash, both egt sensors are reading -40 and it has a torque converter soleniod fault (code P0744) . Im sure that all of these must be linked somehow but does anyone know how.

    Fuel consumption and re-fuelling

    I have a 2011 XF-S 3.0d Portfolio - got it in October. Having taken on board advice from other members (especially Peter - thank you!) and swapping to premium diesel with an occasional shot of Millers Oil additive, I now regularly get 32-34mpg locally and an easy 42-46 on long motorway trips. I also do not 'spare the horses'! If I drop into sport mode I can easily drop that down to low 20's. But that's almost too much fun! Cheers, Jon

    2002 S Type Auto V6

    I've seen steering lock failure several times. There isn't a code as far as I'm aware. However, the problem can usually be fixed by a quick reset on the Jaguar diagnostics. If not then the steering lock module is faulty and needs to be replaced. DO you get any indication of a steering lock error on the drivers display or, as I said, do you hear the relay clunk when you insert the key?

    2002 S Type Auto V6

    Hi Raislin i think we are getting somewhere - as mentioned in my opening post the local garage here ( small garage) in his limited English spoke something about the steering lock and asked if I had ? Code - I’m not sure what he was referring too - but from your post it seems he could be on the right trail - do you know what code he could be referring too- and if yes where would I obtain same many thanks Stewart

    Jaguar XF Colour

    Hi, Karol. Ref to spacesaver spare wheel for 2018 XF, did you encounter any problems fitting the spare wheel into the boot wheel well,I notice the battery is located in the wheel well ,and can’t see how a spacesaver would fit.Need some advice before I commit to buy,
  21. Leo

    Which one should we go for?

    Hi Sally, and welcome to the Club. I had the XF3.0D S, and found it superb. However, what length of journeys do you do? Short journeys will cause problems with the diesel particulate filter, so if that is your kind of usage you would be better off looking at a petrol engine.

    Thank you Clive that’s what we have been mostly looking at, but what is portfolio livery please?
  24. Clive Hunt

    Which one should we go for?

    The only model in my humble opinion to go for is the one I have, the XF 3.0D S in Portfolio livery.

    Do you hear the steering lock solenoid operating when you put the key in to the ignition?
  26. We are looking at buying a XF jaguar but want to make sure we know the ins and outs of this model. We cannot afford a new one much to our regret but probably one about 5 years old. Can anyone give us a heads up of pros and cons and which model to look out for. Many thanks in advance
