Welcome to the Club, James,

 

I have an S Type but it has the same engine as your XF.  I don't get oily hands any more, but I have never had that problem.  I have a guess, I think most people would like to hear the engine running.  What is the mileage on your car? Diesels do last much longer, and will stand a big mileage.

 

Peter.

Hi James,

 

The car could so with a long run occasionally, and given a bit of welly from time to time.  That keeps the DPF clean and regenerated.

 

I would also give the car a Terraclean service - cost about 160 euros, but it does give the engine a good clean out and gets rid of the carbon deposits ---  it is very good for diesels.

 

Does the engine malfunction warning light come on   --- I think it ought to with a bearing going.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
