    Jaguar xf 4 problems

    hi back doors are most probably stiff motors, spray some wd40 in them and they will free off, its a common problem restricted performance will be just pure guess work, you need to get it plugged in to see what the actual problem is water, it got be going somewhere, have you checked the oil, does it still look ok, not gone milky, also most probably keaking underneath, you wont usually see it on the floor as they have plastic undertrays which will hold the leaking water, if i remember right xf have plastic pipes tha fail, if not that a hose or expansion tank, good garage should be able find and sort it cheers Joe

  10. hi unless you state you want them changed, they usually don't get done manual for my S-type R says, for the plugs is 100k or 10 years, but thats with genuine oe one's I change mine every couple of years, there no that expensive and really not that hard to do if your plugs have not been done before, its worth checking, the air filter and pollen filter, pollen filter always get forgotten and can get in quite a state always try to use descent seals for the manifold, I always stick to genuine parts, there a common cause of lean fault codes cheers Joe

    Battery storage

    hi you would be better off with a smart charger like a ctek I know you said you have no supply there, but you could extend the cables, so it could reach another building with a supply as longs as its the 12 volts leads and there fused close to the battery if you can keep the car powered up, you less likely to get any issues with faults and electronics prefer to be kept powered up also on the matter of solar chargers there ok, but there not smart, they will put a voltage out, wheather the battery flat or fully charged, so they can also overcharge the battery and boil it dry cheers Joe


    Hi Got my car insured with Footman James, they only insured my S-type R because I was in the JDC, but was by far the best quote I had with the best policy I've been offered there excess was really low and there uk staff and call centre they also do agreed value a well, which was very good this is the second year I've been with them and renewal came through more competive than everone else cheers Joe
