Jag XF service recommendation

Hello,

Hope you can help me. I am a very proud owner of XF 3.0 V6 Diesel S Portfolio 2009 and for the last 7-8 months I have a "service required" displayed on the dash. Service indeed is overdue and was due is May but because of Covid it was difficult to get it organized. I have contacted my local Jaguar dealer and they informed or suggested a date in 3-4 weeks time, at the earliest and not guaranteed due to the backlog,  so I'd like to get it done sooner together with an MOT which is due at the end of October.

So, my question to the forum is, would you know or recommend any garages around Kingston Upon Thames area that I could contact and progress with the service and the MOT. It doesn't have to be a Jaguar authorized garage but I suppose it would help.

Hope you can help.

Tom

You've had a service required message for 7/8month's you should never ignore such a message, because if a Regeneration of the Diesel Particle Filter Fails Diesel can be Dumped into the Engine Oil in the Sump and then all sorts off problems can occur like the Engine Revving it's Head off which has happened some year's ago with some XJ 358 model's and not just jaguars, In a XJ forum some members when doing a service themselves would add a 1/2 to 1 litre off Engine Oil Less that what was recommended.

Because if there's a failed Regeneration of the Diesel Particle Filter, Diesel will enter the Sump pushing up the Oil Level above the required level so with less oil added there's hopefully a safety level. And the service required message you had could have been a warning to get a Engine Oil and Oil Filter service done because the Engine Oil could have been contaminated with Diesel which could and can damage an Engine.

I hope you get your service done and enjoy your XF.

Regards Tom.
