Re: Service Warning Light and oil dilution issue

I'm sorry, I still see no actual evidence only reports of individual circumstances skewed by those who complain on forums and those who have no issues and don't post about it. Every manufacturer has issues with their DPF system. The customer service response in how it's dealt with is the difference ...

Re: Service Warning Light and oil dilution issue

But where are your figures of vehicles affected? I've read all these things before. I've also read Vauxhalls handbook stating DPF equipped vehicles should not be parked in long grass due to the risk of fire during and shortly after a regeneration cycle. How many actually caught fire? The same Vauxha...

Re: Service Warning Light and oil dilution issue

I've worked in the automotive industry for 15 years, not affiliated with any manufacturer and have have seen this issue consistently since 2007. Back then, particularly in Peugeot's and more often Police cars of that manufacturer, why that should be I can't say. What I can't get my head around is if...

Re: Service Warning Light and oil dilution issue

You will hear the engine cooling fan running if it is mid cycle, engine idle is also slightly higher. Revoke, I'd be interested to see your evidence of "Normal driving can never invoke passive regeneration" as mine does and I'm sure a substantial number do? I am not affiliated with Jaguar in any way...

Re: Service Warning Light and oil dilution issue

And a cheap oil would likely be higher SAPS, lower grade base oil and additive pack, in turn increasing fuel consumption and requiring DPF regeneration more often, thus dumping more fuel into the sump making the oil thinning worse, causing problems elsewhere and being a false economy. Castrol and Ja...

Quick Detailer is really a finishing and protection product rather than a cleaner.

Re: Grease on body near front passenger wheel

Rubber boot enclosing the CV joint, keeping grease in whilst dirt out. Might just be the clip has worked loose, wouldn't expect the boot to perish in 5 months or so.

Re: Diesel Jaguar E pace issues

If the engine isn't getting up to temperature to run a proper DPF regeneration the system automatically overfuels to raise the temperature to run a "short cycle" regeneration. If the engine is stopped during this process, that additional fuel can be dumped into the sump, thinning the oil and reducin...

Re: incontrol's Bug ?

I have no other issues with the car but covering up to 300 miles a day before lockdown, a functioning media system is a priority for me. I get the feeling the Jaguar have already washed their hands of this system and are developing a new system for the next generation cars. My neighbour has an RR Sp...

Re: incontrol's Bug ?

The SOTA update is not available to everyone yet, I don't know how JLR decide who is eligible and in what order but my car is a January 2020 build, UK car, and SOTA is not available for me. The car was delivered to me with outdated software which Parks Jaguar called "phase 3". The WiFi facility and ...
