Customer Question
I have the coolant...

I have the coolant level low on but the coolant is just below the max level and when I drive sometimes the amber engine light comes on with a message saying restricted performance DSC not available

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No it hasn't stalled it just creeps very slowly

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?

XF 2008

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XF yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yesterday when it happened I topped up my windscreen washer and the problem went away. I have done nothing soo far

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all that's happening
