  1. Also change the fuel filter, a partially blocked one can cause intermittent RP (I have the T Shirt).

  3. Joe I specifically purchased Denso due to your previous advice that they were OE and it was best to buy them. In fact not very much dearer than some unknown brands that can be obtained. Many thanks and Regards, John

  5. HI, I also have a 2011 3.0l XF-S, had it for three years come October. So have been through 2 winters with it. Living in West Sussex, I don't often get to see really bad snow or ice (but when it does come, the response is ill-equipped to deal with it!) Being retired, I don't have to go out in the occasional ice & snow, but I have given it a go a few times using the winter mode setting for the traction control. That seems to work fine with normal tyres (Pirelli P-Zero 255/35x20). I guess if you need the extra security, winter tyres would be a good move, but I can't justify them for 2 or 3 weeks a year. Enjoy your XF! J

  6. Hi I use the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 all seasons (all 4 corners) and am very impressed with the performance so far (A rated for rain) but not had any thick snow to test them in yet. I also have 4 Jaguar snow socks for the next "Beast from the East" but they are still in the wrapping and have never actually needed them in the 3 years I have had the car! John

  7. hi looks great all season tyres are usually ok, it depends what winter we get rear wheel drive cars are not the best in ice or snow, but we dont get that much here generally all season tyres are quite good I have used winter/snow tyres and they are far superior in ice and snow and only use them december to march a lot of it it depends on the roads your travelling, if its all main road, there more likely to be kept clear in winter cheers Joe

  8. My XF's intercooler gave up the ghost, splitting at the metal / plastic joint. Warranty company refused to pay, saying that my car has been modified...owing to my private plate. Well, I've won, but it took a statement from the Association of British Insurers, stating that they saw a private plate as an identifier and not a modification. Warranty suppliers seem to consider paying out as a failure rather than a service that the customer has paid for. Mind you, they insisted on photos of the car with old and new plates fitted, whatever that proves. Anyways. Car should be fixed this coming week, with a genuine intercooler as well 🙂

  9. Hi Misfueling device has been triggered. There is a yellow plastic tool on top of the battery to reset it. Basically push it down the filler and lift Look down the filler and you will see a bright yellow flap with a symbol of a manual on it. Instructions are in the handbook or just google it as there are good videos on youtube. Land Rover has the same system. Regards John

  10. Hi My starting point would be to read the DTC codes as without them you really are guessing. John

  11. Possibly a small crack in one of the intercooler end casings. Only opens during acceleration (high turbo pressure).

  13. Hi Paul Can you name and shame please. That sort of Bullshit attempt to get out of honouring a warranty contract needs airing so others can avoid them! Glad they eventually paid up. John
