  1. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    My 2015 Diesel XJ went for an MOT today. All was fine except that the MOT tester noticed that there was oil on the drivers side exhaust at the bottom of the manifold at the exhaust connection, in front of the particulate filter . The performance is fine and the oil level on the display is on the...

  2. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    Hey everyone, I did try to look around, but was unable to find any definitive answer. I'm new to Jaguar and the XJ. I recently purchased an XJ from 09.2016 Portfolio with ACC, 360 cams and loads more extras. I love it. In all cars I've owned in the past I was able to reset the service message...
  3. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    unfortunately a bad one, I've owned my XF-S Portfolio (2011) for nearly a year and it's been a great car. Recently I've been getting RP which has been getting more frequent until now it's every time I drive. I get the usual mass airflow fault code when I pull the codes. Today I had a good look...
  4. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    Hi Guys and Girls, Hope everyone is having a lovely week. Just wanting to know what oil would be best suited for a 2010 Jaguar x250 XF-S 3.0 Diesel V6 (DPF). On oil cap it does say Castrol, but there are different types, just wanted to know what you guys recommend. Thanks,

    having just completed another European trip following the Mille Miglia, 2700 miles over 14 days the only issue again was another pressure sender. yes its hot engine driving, but starts with slightly erratic engine oil pressure, mostly lower than normal and varying between about 10 and 40 PSI...
  6. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    It seems that there has been a mixup with the oil cans - the right oil for my petrol (2005, 2.5V6, 150 000 km) Jag is Castrol EDGE 0W-30 A5/B5, but instead it was filled with Castrol Edge FST Titanium 5W30 LongLife. It is actually a ACEA C3 oil with low saps for DPF diesel cars. Other...

    Chaps I want to alert you before you suffer damage and don't ignore this even if you do daily motorway trips at 70+mph! My daughter does 100 mile daily motorway round trips at 70+mph in the opposite direction to traffic. About 2 years ago her Audi A3 spat out a conrod because of diesel fuel in...
  8. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    I have oil dripping from below the car. It is black oil and therefore, I presume, engine oil. I have had the car on ramps and looked hard but cannot see where it originates. It seems to be from the rear of the block about halfway up and this area is almost impossible to see. The rocker...

    X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    I was wondering from all the prices that are out there in the least recognized brands, but still delivering the specs required by Jaguar/Ford, what brand of oil being 0-30W the viscosity do you use for a full oil change? And what Filter brands? For a better judgement Castrol now recommends the...
  10. XJ (X350, X358) Aluminium Body 2003 - 2009
    When I did the timing belt / oil pump I put in Castrol Magnatec A5 which I now think was a mistake as I don't think it is a low SAPS oil, so it will do the DPF no good. I really must complain to Halfords for having it on their database for the XJ diesel. I think that I will swap it now before...

    Since there are different sales promotions going on any specific thread title is soon obsolete. So we can post the current ones here. The current promotion is: 20% off mId-month sale for June. Code: MIDMONTH20
  12. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hi all, I changed my transmission fluid (gearbox oil) on my S-Type around 6000 miles ago - maybe less, and no more, and around a year or so ago time-wise. But it has since developed a slow weepy leak from, (I believe) around the electrical connector sleeve. I plan to double check that it is...
  13. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi All I took my x-type 2005 petrol V6 2.1 to an Independent Jaguar Specialist in May for a full service and they use Texaco 5W30 SEMI SYNTHETIC oil. Yesterday I took it to Halfords for a winter check where they said it needed an oil top-up. When I told them what oil was in it they refused to...
  14. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    As above, struggle to get it cheaper than this and garages cant even buy it for this price.

    Changed the differential oil on my 2007 STR today and thought I'd make a short guide. Experienced home mechanics will find it boring/verbose, newbies like me may find it useful. Presumably the n/a 4.2 has the same diff (and possibly the 2.7D?) but I'm not sure about other models. Fairly easy...
  16. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi I have a x type 2.0d 2007 and i am having problems with the car on startup. When i start the car it is very lumpy like it was n't firing on all cylinders or something like, also it kicks out a good cloud of smoke (white/blue) . It soon settles down after 1 or 2 mins and then runs fine when...
  17. XJ (X350, X358) Aluminium Body 2003 - 2009
    I tried a forum-search for "Oil Level", "Overfull", "Dipstick" and other expressions but couldn't find anything relevant. I'm almost sure that I read somewhere here that if you oil level is showing over the Max mark, it indicates some sort of problem elsewhere. Anyone know what it is (or have I...
  18. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    My 2001 2.5 V6 , petrol, X type has now done 50k miles. Its automatic. When should I change the gearbox oil / fluid or whatever you want to call it? :confused:
  19. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    Hi All, Having trouble locating the Oil drain plug on my 2001 S-Type 3.0 V6, does anyone happen to have a photo of the area where it is? I've searched the forum (And generally online), and seen various statements about it being in the vicinity of the Oil filter at the base of the engine toward...
