Jaguar—S Type and XJ diesel vehicles—Diesel Particulate Filter
What are the defects?
When these vehicles are driven under a unique driving pattern where the vehicle is predominantly used for short journey distances, under slow driving style and light throttle application, excessive soot and hydrocarbons may become trapped in the Diesel Particulate Filter (DFP). The DPF on 2.7 Litre V6 diesel engine vehicles may exhibit smoke and/or fire from the underside of the vehicle, flames emanating from within the rear exhaust tailpipe or an orange glow from the underside of the vehicle.
