    No, the engine has parts that are oiled in small intervals and not continually fed for cooling.

    SAT NAV REBOOT

    This is what is in the manual. Also the widows will need resetting and the sunroof if fitted. there is more somewhere in the manual but I haven't time at present to find it. NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc...

    SAT NAV REBOOT

    Sorry I meant an SD card. Withe respect you are getting the correct info on XE Forums. I would suggest that you DO NOT disconnect the battery. Disconnection on the XE can open a bigger can of worms as many things are upset in the electronics. This is not a car that likes amateurs messing with.

    Broken Jaguar XE engine

    The XE engine is not as simple as conventional engines and oil is not circulated in the same manner. There are oil jets that lube parts intermittantly during the engines ignition cycle. This is a likely cause of the problem of oil starvation if the oil gets very mucky even with filtration. The...

    Do not buy a diesel xe - worst car ever

    About 2-3 years ago there was a recall for a camshaft adjustment. Has this been done or did you buy the car secondhand , that may have been used by a rep or a business use car, where the owner couldn't give two hoots about recalls or faults? I would think with the PCP schemes about now and very...

    CAN BUS problem

    If that is a recall situation JLR usually do it FOC. Check TOPIX for recalls on your car. If you are not familiar with TOPIX, register as an independant and follow the instructions.

    SAT NAV REBOOT

    I assume that you have a SIM card in the armrest console? If so remove it, lock the car and wait 10 minutes. Unlock and refit the SIM and that will reset everything. Disconnecting the battery will open a can of worms for you. Jaguar use a back up battery when doing a battery swop. By...

    XE Battery charging query

    You can use a charger up to 5 Amps. I would sugest a CTek charger as these are more suited to AGM batteries fitted to the XE. Initially I used a standard charger on mine but set for a low rate. CTek chargers are more expensive but the way they charge is far superior to a basic charger.

    Jaguar XF or Xe vs Infinity or other premium luxury brands?

    Buzz Lightyear invented the Infinity. Not popular here in the UK so it would be the Jag for me.

    Particle Filter

    Normally you will not detect anything unless you are doing low mileages and then you may see a bit of blue exhaust smoke on low revs. Most likely idling. Otherwise you will notice that the KPL will be recorded lower in your journeys. After the regen the KPL will be excellent. The XE does not...

    stop/start

    The stop/start is dependant on many issues and they are listed in the handbook. The battery power and draw from that when on the move can inhibit it. I did a massive theory into other factors on XE Forums over the past 5 years and only sorted it by uprating to a 90Ah battery. There is also a...

    Can you change your gearbox mode while driving diesel + zf autobox?

    Yes, just press the button. If you use the paddles to change gear then only in SPORT will the gear stay where you chnged to. In other modes it will revert to auto after a few seconds.

    Renewal of Jaguar Select Warranty

    It's possible that the pads are part to blame. Have you noticed the lack of brake dust on the wheels compared with other cars? they seem to be harder and of a different compound. https://www.xeforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9464&p=106321&hilit=brembo+brake+discs#p106321

    Renewal of Jaguar Select Warranty

    Jaguar use BREMBO discs on the XE. There was someone who changed their's recently, themselves, and BREMBO was stamped on them along with Jaguar.

    Renewal of Jaguar Select Warranty

    I bought a 4th year warranty from Jaguar. It was a waste of money as I never needed it. It does include Jag assist but you can buy AA or RAC rescue with your car insurance at a greatly reduced cost over direct purchase RAC was £160 approx for the cover I wanted. I tagged it onto my car insurance...

    Car Covers

    I had a car cover on my old MG and it made moisture collect under it. I then started putting in a dry garage without the cover only to find that in the winter several days later it was still covered in rain water that I hadn't dried off. So my method is, polish and wax with sealant in Autumn and...
