    Which Jag to buy?

    Hi Wasi Welcome to the Ownersclub. We haven't heard from you regarding an x type, i'm in East Lothian if you want to meet up at Straiton. I can show you my x type and tell you what to look out for. Regards Tom.

    Spare Wheel For XF

    I thought rotating tyres was a thing of the past due to tyres having to be fitted a certain way, that's why there's a directional arrow on them and if TPMS is fitted the wheel has to stay on the same axle it was fitted too.

    Hi new to club and 1st jaq

    Hi Anthony. Welcome to the club. Good on you getting stuck in and cleaning the EGR and the manifold, you should also have a look at the Jubilee Clips on the EGR and Intercooler hoses because they Corrode and the hoses can get blown off. Replace them with Stainless steel clips. The hoses can also split especially the one from the EGR down to the intercooler some members replace them with Silicone hoses. Regards Tom.

    DPF full

    Hi Rik. I think when you have a red light, you have to get a forced regeneration at a garage. Doesn't your handbook explain what to do, what i'm led to believe is if you have a yellow light you can go for a 20/30 minute drive after the engine is up to normal temperature (ie a Hot engine ) to get a complete regeneration. When a Regeneration is starting with my car I find that the the engine revs are idling higher than normal ( up by about 150 revs ) or the exhaust is making a louder noise than usual ( as if there's a hole in the exhaust ) if this is happening don't switch off the engine and go for a drive. Diesels are meant to be Driven as some members say give it a Italian tune or sometimes drive it as if you had stolen it. In nearly 6 years i've never had a warning light come on, i've certainly had a few Regenerations and they can occur when your not suspecting it ( I was recently driving to the Cairnryan ferry and after travelling some 120 miles I pulled into a service station and yep a Regeneration was taking place so just carried on driving and the engine idling revs were back to normal after about another 10 miles ). If a Regeneration is interrupted ( ie the engine being switched off diesel can enter the sump pushing up the oil level witch can cause problems ) which is why most member's put less oil into the engine than is mentioned in the Handbook. I only use 5:5 litres instead off 6 litres and use a Low Ash C1 Oil WSS M2C 934B this is the oil jaguar are now using and we advise to use only genuine jaguar oil and fuel filters. There's also a debate about what diesel too use some members say to use Shell V Power Diesel Or another premium diesel. I hope this has helped in some way, when buying a car it is usually recommended by members to get all fluids and filters changed and then you know how things are within the engine . Regards Tom.

    AN XF Sportbrake Newbie.

    I should have mentioned that there is a government web site that you can check the cars MOT history when you enter the Reg Number. Regards Tom.

    AN XF Sportbrake Newbie.

    The best way to find out if the car is an S model is to get the Vin Number usually on the nearside at the bottom of the windscreen, and then contact Jaguar to find out which model it is. The car in the video doesn't seem to be an S model because there is not a S badge on the lower spoke of the steering wheel. Some Dealer's can miss sell cars and even with the x type, Jaguar had miss sold them and owner's had to get the VC 5 forum changed. As mentioned above get the Vin Number. Regards Tom.

    AN XF Sportbrake Newbie.

    Hi Paul. The normal 3-0 litre engine is about 240 bhp, but the XF model with the S badge have an upgraded engine with 275 bhp. Regards Tom.
  12. Hi Les. You should check for any codes because showing a gearbox fault could have nothing to do with the gearbox.

    Which oil to use?

    I'm just going with what Castrol told me, Castrol Magnatec 5/30 is a A5 WSS M2C 913C/913D and not a Low Ash C1 Oil which we are supposed to use in a car with a Diesel Particulate Filter. At the time when jaguar dealers could only sell the Castrol Oil in 1 litre containers, they did suggest that i could use a C2 Low Ash Oil that i could purchase from oil suppliers. Regards Tom.

    Which oil to use?

    Magnates 5/30 stop/start WSS M2C 913C/913D is not a Low Ash C1 Oil the number you need is WSS M2C 934B. I had to phone Castrol who were very helpful as i got know help from jaguar, and they said that i needed a Low Ash C1 Oil WSS M2C 934B and I could only buy it from jaguar dealers in 1litre containers so i looked elsewhere. I think that's why jaguar have gone onto Shell helix ultra WssM2C 934B C1 Oil. Castrol Magnatec 5/30 stop/start will be a good oil for the engine but won't help with the car having a Diesel Particulate Filter. Give Castrol a Phone as they are very helpful.
