Customer Question
2011 jag xf. Smelled...

2011 jag xf. Smelled little oil burning and just took to local guy who has changed oil a couple times and when he dropped pan 3-4 quarts were trapped and has got all over the place alternator, etc. What could cause this?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

5/11/2017 less then 10000 miles

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

No a local guy who works on Jags (a mechanic with his own shop)

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

Running fine, no light came on

Hi, my name is***** oil leaks on this model come from the valve cover gaskets and from the oil cooler seals. Since so much oil was under the car I am inclined to think that you have oil cooler seal leakage. The oil cooler is under pressure and when the seals leak it makes a huge mess. The cooler is underneath the intake manifold in the valley of the engine.

Let me know if you have any questions.
