3rd Year Service

Post by JohnG123 » Wed Apr 17, 2019 3:37 pm

Hi

The manual states with engine hot and up to temperature, wait 10 min and check oil. If you wait much longer it will report over filled or when you check it when cold it always does.

Presume you are on the flat? And I mean absolute flat. Mine reports over fill if I am on a very slight slope. Perfectly flat it reports OK and on max.

AWD take 0.5L less oil than RWD BTW. The manual will state not to drive the car if oil says over filled.

What to do...... um. If it was OK on Saturday then I would guess it is OK. I would get engine up to temp. Wait 10 on absolute flat and try again. If it reports over fill again query with dealer.

Not good.

SimpleR has said the correct course of action.

If still overfilled would phone them straight up to come and trailer it back to resolve - as the handbook states, you shouldn't drive the car overfilled.

You can email them the photo whilst on the phone.

I would expect some compensation too for the inconvenience and potentially damaging the engine if you hadn't noticed so quickly.

Unfortunately trust in Jag dealerships is not high - I also did the same check after a recent service.

My 10yr old could do a better job than these muppetts! Depending how much its overfilled it could cause damage so as mentioned be careful

Um again!
I thought that V8 R AWD is 6.5 litres (Service Fill) and 8.9 litres (Dry Fill). So 7L would be too much (presuming they put it all in?)

As you checked on Saturday and it was OK I would suggest you are OK but worth getting double checked or course. The joys of an electronic dip stick!!

Is that right? Mine was serviced yesterday and my man told me that one of the characteristics of this lightweight oil is that it expands like mad when it heats up, so checking when hot will always show overfilled (unless it's very low!). Checking cold should not say overfilled.

I agree about how picky the sensor is - slight uphill incline will show underfilled, and slight downhill will show overfilled.

And the US forum is full of owners believing their AWDs have been filled as RWDs.

So, we must check the oil each week, that's 15 minutes drive to warm the engine up, 10 minutes sitting around to let it settle, 2 more minutes as it's never ready after 10 minutes and then 10 seconds to read the reading.
Roughly 30 minutes a week just to check the oil, is this technology really an advancement?
