XF s Engine Blown. Please help


Recommended Posts

Hi all im desperately in need of some advice and help.

I have just received the devastating news that my engine has been written off due to a con rod failure. 

The failure happened two days ago when the car suffered a loud bang and then came to a halt. When i exited the car there was a large pool of Oil collecting beneath the engine. Today the garage confirmed that the engine is a complete write off. 

The car is a 2011,  3 litre diesel XFs variant which has just over 80000 miles on the clock. 

If anyone is able to help here are a few questions:

1: Is this a common problem with this engine?

2: I have been quoted £5000 for a replacement engine. Does this sound like a fair price?

3. What would the car be worth if i didn't have the engine replaced and sold it as is.

4. The car is only 4.5 years old, would Jaguar be of any assistance at all.


Thanks in advance

Hi Gerrad, and welcome to the the Club.

Sad story  --  these engines go on for ever [normally].

It might be worth contacting Jaguar just to see what they could do.

I don't think £5k is too much out of the way for a new engine.

Let us know how you get on.
