I’m saying the Jaguar Xe is a good car but the diesel do have problems just like other brands have to.

Really good response guys thanks I am more confident now, she just hit 95k and got her fully serviced there so hopefully many miles to go.

I mentioned it to the private garage and they said the engine is healthy but seeing as all you chaps are XE experts I was wondering if you could have a quick look at the video and see what you'd think ?

As mentioned it's looking for a rattle in a bag of rattles 😂

I would recommend the use of a headset.

Sounds to me like a normal healthy diesel.

if its not a silly question why did Jaguar not change the dipstick length to one that shows correct level.
