Hi Jim,

 

Assuming your XF is a diesel, common issues are the EGR valves getting too sooty now and then.  There are several cures  --  take them off and clean them, which is arduous and mucky  ---  Wynnes EGR Valve cleaner, under a Tenner from Halfords  --  or the cheapest is to press the S mode button and give the car a good  blast to get the valves cleaned out, which can be quite enjoyable.

 

The other thing to do is to avoid supermarket fuel and use the best fuel which the engine likes as it gives you a better mpg.

 

XF owners will tell you their experiences.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
