  4. Hi, I was hoping to collect some info before I buy a Jaguar and thought this site would be a good place to chat about it. I was hoping to buy a Jaguar XF, but I seem to read a wide range of figures around its MPG. Granted, MPG does take into a lot of factors, but was hoping for some "real" figures from Jaguar owners. The model I am looking at is a 2015 XF 2.2d R-Sport (200ps). With this being my first delve into the exc saloon range and pushing my budget a little, id like to have all bases covered. It will be used for general family use, so from long trips down the motorways for days out to every day errands around town. Any tips, advice or experiences would be gratefully appreciated. Michael.

    ZF 6HP26 Automatic Transmission Gearbox

    Welcome to the Club Martin. The gearbox oil is supposed to be for life, but most drivers change at around 60k to 70k. My s type has 77k on the clock but had a new engine at 28k so I have not had it changed yet, but I will in 3 years time. Regards Peter.

    Automated locking on pull away

    this is where it gets weird... if I use central locking, the door will open on the inside lever fine... if the car auto locks then it seems to go into deadlock and the door will not open until the CL button is pressed... the inner handle is non affective..

    2.7 t remap? Experiences?

    All, Have booked the car for the remap this Friday and am hopeful of a positive outcome despite the usual concerns I think many people have. Will post an update on the process and outcome once it's done and I've put a few miles on the clock to gauge performance etc. Cheers again for the input. steve

    Solar Battery Trickle Charger

    I bought this one -> https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AC1LLQY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I rarely use the car, so I pop it out of the garage and leave it to sit for the day with the charger connected. And just in case, I've printed a STOP! warning that sits in front of the speedo in case I attempt to start the engine with the charger plugged into the OBD connector, which is an absolute no-no! Cheers, Mark

    DSC not available ?

    Might be an ABS sensor. More likely to be brake servo. Prevalent fault with the later S-Types, Is it a diesel?

    DPF close to breaking point!!!

    I hope you get it sorted bud... It's always a shame when you throw some much money at something for it not to be fixed. Sometimes the basics are overlooked and you get transfixed on an issue that isn't there. If you've done so much work to the DPF and Differential Pressure Sensor then you can pretty much rule them out. In all honesty (and I know it doesn't help you now) personally I would have suspected it wasnt the DPF before doing all the intake and injector testing. Either way I don't know your mechanics reasons for swapping the DPF and sensor so without actually knowing what has been diagnosed it's very easy for me to sit here and criticise. It's not unheard of for DPFs to require replacement but their price makes me kinda wanna rule out any other stuff before hand. Good luck!

    X Type 2.2 Turbo Actuator

    Cheers, I have seen their advert. Sounded OK to me. My old Mazda used a version of the Ford 2 litre diesel. I ran it for. 7 years with no hint of any turbo issues. So I am a tad miffed with the Jag.

    Automatic dipping of mirrors

    So the workshop manual may have generic sections, because I haven't seen it mentioned elsewhere. But, while investigating that, I decided to clean and lubricate the folding mechanism. After blowing out spoonfuls of grit and spraying with PTFE, they worked perfectly. 😀 Until I put the covers back on, that is. 😣 Guess I'll have to remove and disassemble them completely, which is something that may happen any day from now. 😉

    Alarm Sounding whilst driving

    Hi Chris, and welcome to the club. My first thought would be low battery: You bought the car yesterday, and it may well have stood around a bit, and had some short journeys before then. These cars throw up random electrical issues if the battery is less than fully charged. I would get a CTEK battery conditioner (or similar) and charge it for at least 24 hours, to see if that helps. I trust that you will go on to enjoy both the car and the club!

    Power Steering Problems

    Welcome to the Club, Michael. Rich has given you a very good answer. You are quite right to make an enquiry about a slight shudder, as small issues can grow into big issues which can not only be dangerous but also expensive. I had a similar problem with a Rover Sterling many years ago -- I thought the steering was getting a bit heavy and as the car was less than 12 months old and still under warranty I took it back to the main dealer and the whole steering rack had to be replaced, and, thankfully, at their expense. Regards Peter.

    Photography

    Took my baby for a very quick photo shoot the other day after a wash and wax. Anyone know of any stately homes which can be used as a background for photography? Free of course! Where there are little to no interruptions.

    Rear entertainment

    Has anyone here got the rear entertainment for their XJ and had issues with digital signals? Has anyone found a way to overcome these issues?
