  1. Yesterday
  2. Hi. As I have found a suitable XK portfolio to be my next Jaguar, I have reduced the asking price of my car to £4995. I really can justify keeping two Jaguars so this is a beautiful car for someone! The car has now reverted back to its original registration KT07XCZ. Call me on 07743855364 for more details.
  3. hi there as a new member yet an 5 year owner of a 2013 jag xf 2.2 could anyone help me. The stop start function does not work, I also have inconsistent vents opening, and a message on the display screen "system will shut down in 1 minute" appears randomly; I have approached my local dealer and they recommend a new battery at a cost of £434 inc fitting, 1 hours labour; but I can alternatively use a local national battery supplier to replace my battery at a cost of £170 fitted (stop start platinium battery). What should I do?. I also need assurance that a replacement battery will alleviate all above issues on my car. Thank you in advance. Mike.
  4. Recently I solved a water leak from the pipe union between the expansion tank and water hose. This was dropping coolant and in turn causing the alternator to become soaked. If the windings are wet then sparking will occur and the charge output will drop. Now the engine bay is dry again I noticed the battery charge has improved and I can put off buying a new battery for the time being. I really think s-type owners should check around the top of the radiator and the fan housing for any sign of water and if found deal with it, this is particularly relevant to charging issues.
  5. The new car isn't without its issues, most of which i have sorted out now (no thanks to the dealer) but there is one i cant seem to shift... There was a horrific smell of burnt oil coming through the vents in the first week, which i put down to oil spillage / leakage in between the banks by the oil filter. Since then i have had the throttle body off, cleaned most of the oil off and rinsed through with some industrial goo and water to sort that out (all over a catch tank for the environmentalists among us!) What i think this could be is down to a couple of reasons, - Over tightening of the oil filter housing or under (whichever) , a poor or not replaced seal and a cracked throttle body (which is what i had on my old XF). However, just like Google doctor, the internet is throwing up all manner of woeful tales about cracked flex joints in the exhaust and doom and gloom.. Has anyone else had anything similar and if so, what was the cure? I love the car, and the colour and the interior spec (black leather with carbon style trim) but i am really starting to contemplate sending it back and going with my second option of a silver XJ with more toys in Leicester... Can anyone shed any light on the fumes issue? Thanks in advance
  6. Hi Robert and welcome to the club. It is possible that it is a software glitch. I would check the battery just in case it is getting low in this cold weather though Regards, Peter.

  12. Last week
  13. I have a 2004 2.5 SE with 52k on the clock, and also have this issue in similar driving conditions, usually followed by a MIL after the third or fourth engine re-cycle - it happened 3 times to me today. Once I clear the MIL the gearbox behaves for a week or two, then it starts all over again. I've had opinions, each from different experienced sources, ranging from 'change the oil' (done), 'it's a sticky solenoid', 'the wiring gets too hot' to 'replace the gearbox'. I'm going to buy myself an iCarSoft LR v.2.0 soon, and if necessary I'll be visiting these guys in Twickenham: http://www.rimsengineering.co.uk/ Regards, Mark
  14. I have recently purchased a new radiator since although the current one has not failed, it has curved at the bottom and I figure it won't be too long before a leak occurs. What I am going to do is reinforce the new radiator by placing aluminium bar top and bottom of the radiator core and a strut length ways to try and prevent this happening again. I will use zinc-alloy brazing to attach the various aluminium bar and plate, since the zinc-alloy melts at 400°c and should provide a suitable and strong filler. Not going to TIG since I am a beginner at that. Wish me luck, I will work on the radiator around Xmas time and install it when the weather is warmer and will post pictures.
  15. Sorted !! Purchased from Ebay Item No 323215897126. £42.99 inc PP Genuine Jaguar unit Very quickly posted. Worth a look, lots of new jaguar parts resonably priced, could be a jaguar dealer! JOHN.

    Engine knock

    I have had a service about 8 weeks ago and also had a terraclean done at the same time. Would it take this long for the oil dilution to show up. Ill check with garage tomorrow as to what oil they used. Thanks for the info joe worth looking in to👍
  18. hi have you changed the oil, diesels can suffer with oil dilution with leaky injectors and can destroy a engine if missed I'd change the oil first, make sure correct grade and spec is used cheers joe
  19. Hi all, im looking for some advice. I have a 2010 xf 3.0l diesel and its running like a dream since purchasing, but last week on first start i noticed there was a knocking sound which sounds like its coming from the engine. Its now there on the first initial start every time when the engine is cold. After 5 mins the noise goes and the engines back to purring as normal. Any advice would be great thanks.
  20. Thanks Jon. Unfortunately, mine has the problem when there is a passenger 😞
  21. I need my engine rebuilt does anyone the cost to have this job done and a good shop in Denver Colorado.
  22. Hi Paul, I just took my XF out for a spin... Initially no air from any vents. Heated windscreen and back window came on automagically though. After a couple of miles, screen heaters went off and warm air came from the outer & middle front vents on the right; nothing on the left at all! However, when my speed-limiter is sitting in the front passenger seat, she's always complaining about warm air from her vents, so goes a little wild with temperature settings (20 on my side, 16 on hers) that obviously confuses things when she gets too cold and cranks it up again! Maybe the car is sensing the presence of someone on the front passenger seat??? These cars are just too clever, never know what tricks they have! But we love 'em!!! I appreciate this may not deal with your problem - sorry - but mine does just the same when there's no front seat passenger Cheers, Jon
  23. Hi Garry, I used AutoDNA when I bought my XF just over a year ago; you can get the car's history and original specs in one place. Only problem is, you need the VIN, not just the reg and it costs a couple of £s. Cheers, Jon
  24. Thanks Joe, i was looking to but an s type as i miss my old one. Looking at ads online and it is a chore phoning each one to see what each car has. I used to just check on that site , so much easier.
  25. HHi Ray, I`m near Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire. Cheers Rod
