I bought an incredible Jaguar XF R at the Junk Auto Bank sale. It was sold super cheap because of an "engine knock" which was misdiagnosed and it is just a simple $20 part... This car is easily as good as the BMW M5, E63 and E55 AMG, and Audi RS7 if you compare how much they cost. Also make sure you check out the Jaguar XF Supercharged, it's nearly as good and even cheaper!

    Two things never ever flush an engine with over 50k, and always drain your oil from the sump, leave it over night, to get all the gunk out.


    Sam, I had some extreme results with *CERATEC* from Liqui Molly! I use it on my Jaguar XE 20D as well as my three VW’s TDI, and although I use diesel prime from Liqui Molly as well, I seem to also have some extreme results with royal purple Max-Clean Fuel System Cleaner and Stabilizer. Sam you know someone who can help me fix my diesel pump on my Jetta... the O-ring is leaking from the side.... and I can’t do it, sadly :o(

    Anything put together by thought is limited, thought has divided the world. Is intelligence the activity of thought, or it is outside the realm of thought, which then can use thought? To inquire into the nature of intelligence, one must carefully examine the only instrument we have, which is thought.

    How about this. Quit your chanel and get a real job you loser. You obviously need money. You got recommended to me by ALgone and I gave it a shot. I pay for premium to not hear commercials and bam! First 5 minutes is you begging, and I mean begging for money. Get off your knees good sir. If this is the new tactic to make people listen to you swallowing sponsor nut, as a way to still reach premium subscribers, that sucks. Lol. Anyways i will hit the not interested or don't show me anything from this chanel button. How bout next time if you absolutely have to have a commercial block do it in the middle atleast, the end preferably. Adios.

    Yes Slick 50 is highly recommended. It protects the surfaces and helps the heat transfer. The engine feels freer and smoother. Also put some in the gearbox if its a manual. Beware of FWD gearboxes with lsds mind. The gears change so much smoother and quicker with about a 50- 100ml added

  • LiTenUpADP

    I have used the BG product line. My indy MB mechanic suggested their friction modifiers because of their warranty on engine failure. I have used the flush and it, for sure, cleaned out a clogged lifter on my Silverado. No more tick tick tick. Not a bad idea every 20,000 miles. I still change the oil every 4,000 miles or so because I have heard way too many stories from mechanics that say the extended intervals are baloney. Oil is relatively cheap. Repairs aren't.

    I had the same issue with a knock in my 2000 vw Jetta vr6. Turns out it wasnt the engine knocking.... it was coming from some weird hollow plastic tube that goes into the intake called a intake shift rod. The rubber bushings were shot. Fixed it myself for 25 buck. Every mechanic I brought it to told me it was a knock in the engine and the engine had to be replaced lmfao. Good thing I dont give up easily. Most people would have junked the car.

    The Jaguar XF was rated one of the best values under $20k for a super/turbocharged luxury sedan. Theres nothing wrong with them, they just depreciate faster than anything else.

    Jag/Rover group, worst crap on market. IF you see any, run. AR9200 is best friction modifier due to WS2 and MoS2, it lowers max engine oil temps by over 10 degrees. Only one that really works well. If you ask me, nothing else is worth any money at all.
