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!

  • I'm well into the video, yet still freaked out by all those worms 😱😱😱. I'd be like honey we gotta move out today 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️

  • That big log stuck in the V was the real cause of the rattle

  • Living the dream man!

  • If you put something heavy on the gear selector it will break the mechanism that makes it rise, however the manual states you can still move it. I have the V6 version of this and I love it.

  • 8.28 You might want to look up the word 'lubricity', it doesn't mean what you think it means 😀😂😂

  • jag will break, i know i have one

  • Great video Sam, I've recently bought the same model of car, and am having the same issue with the knocking noise. The dealership I got it from are sorting it out, but they're not believing me about the part you've replaced, and are wasting a lot of time. How's your car going 5 months later?

  • How can you get too many worms on a Chicken farm? Real question

  • So did you fix the engine knock ? Lol

  • I would watch all your videos if your MOM was in them !

  • Yes the shifter knob does malfunction and leave you stranded and there's no way around it other than to wrecker to the nearest Jag Dealer for repair, there was a recall in regards to this very issue of the shift knob not coming up terrible for such a beautiful car!

  • You going to destroy that car before you even sell it especially that transmission have fun well you can

  • I don't use anything because when I was in school as a mechanic the teacher kept telling us that why them additives and stuff create more problems than they help because the way they break down in the oil is not a proper way so it's up to you but I wouldn't recommend adding anything to your engine unless you got the money to back up if anything breaks or you've done a lot of research on that product and sometimes they do lie on their label because it's not food product they don't have to tell the truth on the label and Dollar general there's an oil that they sell there that even on the bottle says do not use in modern engines so be careful what you put in you never know what it is really

  • all 9 to 11 t kilometers on turbo charged engines , only castrol edge 5w30.

  • There is nothing like a oil pan with a drain bolt to get out that slug that hangs around the bottom of the pan a oil extractor will not get that slug out even if the oil is hot.

  • do you like English cars

  • I sold my Range Rover because of the transmission nob don’t rise and I have to keep getting it fix

  • I use archoil in my 2005 powerstroke diesel and I noticed right off that the engine starts quicker and is much quieter. It can also be used in gas engines. I am going to start putting it in my cars. Good stuff!

  • 7:16 does that log come stock with the car or...

  • It’s a 8 speed not a 6 speed

  • Motorkote is great stuff as a insurance, another good one is Lucas oil stabilizer, its real thick (basically a gear oil 75-90 like thick goop), when i managed a lube shop there was a fleet of heavily abused trucks that'd use it every oil change, made the top end quite as new (they were rough af engines, near death) and they swore by the stuff.

  • I always use liqui moly ceratec it’s fantastic. It coats all friction surfaces and the engine runs quieter and smoother

  • "Big salvage "

  • Really the Best one is bestline

  • I got mine 2010 Jaguar XF 111k miles clean title for 5500

  • The same shit happened with my CTS-V V2. Isolator switched and problem is gone.

  • Imagine watching this and then going to buy a knocking supercharged jaguar to find the engine is actually fucked

  • Love the SAMCRAC upgrade to the engine a nice chunk of wood...an extra 30hp right three...

  • I love how you said youre in mexico especially when I know the actual road you were on lol.

  • I use motor Kote, with amazon basics full synthetic. works fine for me, I change at 7000 grand and oil seems fine when I change it. I personally save all my oil from changes for other projects.

  • LUBRICITY

  • As far as I know, it's not the best idea to use those pumps to get the oil out of the engine from the top. I read some years ago that you do NOT want to do that, because it inevitably leaves sludge in the bottom of the oil pan, or sump. If you keep using this method, then the sludge builds up, and builds up over time, until it gets so bad that it can get into the oil passages of the engine, and block them, which can wreck the engine due to lack of oil. You might want to have another think about this.There have been quite a number of cases in Europe where engines have been wrecked because of this. When the oil is drained out of the bottom of the engine, it tends to take a large part of the sludge with it. Just something to think about ........

  • Hey Sam, where is the conclusion video after you got the tune done??

  • I have the same car/color but mine is a 2011. I modified the exhaust and it sounds great. After all these years it still looks great. Never a major issue with the car but brakes are a fortune. I have driven M5’s and AMG’s but take it from someone who has this car for almost 10 years, I would buy the same exact one again new if I could! Btw the checkered flag is not only adding computer control for handling, it stiffens it way up. Sucks for those in the back seat but a true track experience

  • Porsche 911,992 or GT2 2012

  • Just did an oil change to my 2016 Jaguar XF and I'm just finding out about the top way to pull out the oil. Wished I knew this beforehand 😅😅😅

  • This is a brilliant car even the V6 diesel in the UK is awesome. Top videos Sam just a small point Sam this car is a Jag u ar try it, then you will feel its even more satisfying

  • All the cars you buy are priced right but for precision vehicles they seem to be very touchie and cheaply made. At their showroom best, after seeing your videos, at least for me there is not very much to these cars. That being said, you do alright with them for buying them "as is." Keep it up.

  • Sure. It’s pretty simple taking the turbo charger apart and pull it off the engine.

  • A good bit of Brit engineering! Lovely engine, beautiful styling, and as we say here in England " Goes like shit off of a shovel" a cracking motor!

  • I don't know if i would attempt this on an engine like this, but an old school mechanic from my area told me that back in the 70s and 80s they would use kerosene heating fuel or off road diesel fuel as a motor flush. He said they would just dump in about a half gallon right on top of old oil, if it was overfull was not a major concern as this was only in the engine for a few min, but they would run the engine and rev it a few times for about 10-15 min before draining out everything. they would then add another half gallon of fuel and run it again, again fill level which would be low at this point was not a concern, another 10 min or so. drain it again, then fill it up with fresh oil and filter. He said that this would wash out a large majority of sludge buildup and help clear any of the really small oil passages, but like any of the off the shelf solutions was only a band-aid for an obviously bigger problem. When I asked about any negative side effects of the fuel in the crank case he told me that there is a small chance that it could cause excessive wear on things like bearings or rockers, basically any moving part, but that for such a short running time it was unlikely. he also cautioned against doing a motor flush of any kind, either with fuel or with a store bought additive too often, and that he personally would never repeat the process on back-to-back oil changes unless the engine still had a very excessive build-up.

  • Your buddy rich is a racist

  • I this the same motor on the 2010 jag xfr

  • Yeah was wanting to know what oil used that m2c925-A Isn't a retail item yes love my 12 XF portfolio

  • I miss seeing your mom can you show her more?

  • great car....would love one

  • I have been using Liqui Moly Ceratec on a Mercedes C350 and a BMW X3. The Mercedes has almost 200K on it right now, things are still running smooth and shiny inside. The BMW got a liter of Ceratec within a week of purchase and it is coming up on its first 10K mile service (yea, I think 10K is too long, once this first one is done I am going to do the alternating 5K's by myself)

  • does it have a removable roof, no, well its no good

  • Flush yes....friction additives, pointless versus the proper spec oil...total bunkum if using proper oil. And some can clog or narrow fine oil pathways.

  • Iv tried friction nose reduction it works make engines run smother

  • The idea of pumping engine oil out is flawed. The reason for draining engine oil is to increase the likelihood of extracting any heavy particles that might have congregated in the engine. Gravity performs this task better than a pump. Making jobs easier should never be the primary reason for any new technology. Also, too many ads. The first 3 plus minutes was waffle and ads. But you did more later. Boring. There are better ways to impart useful information.

  • is this the same issue that effected early BMW minis?

  • Put your hands in your pockets. Arms waving around are distracting. Good job finding the actual knock.

  • Sam where do you find the auction for these cars.

  • One question: where's mom?

  • what kind of auctions are you talking about and where can a person find them

  • I Have A 22 Lexus LS400 That I Use As A Daily Driver. I'm Shocked At How Poor The Overall Reliability Of Other Luxury Brand's Are! In 22 Years, I've Changed The Breaks Twice, Tires 3 Time's, Timing Belt Twice, Starter Once, And Radiator Once Because I Broke A Piece On It While Changing A Headlight Bulb. Other Than That, My Car Is Still Smooth, Quiet And Reliable As Hell, In Comparison To Cars Like This!

  • Should've replaced that outlet pipe assembly and the rear crossover pipe while you were in there. Very common to leak coolant. Also saw you taking the symposer bracket off... you can pull the symposer out with the charger with just two plugs being released. No need to fight the three t30s off the back.

  • Don’t worry it’ll be broken again soon enough.

  • I have the car that you said to get instead of the R model. Mine is the XF Supercharged from 2010. I bought it from a dealer in 2019 with 36k on the odometer and it was in flawless stock condition. I've put 10k miles on it since owning it and done nothing to it other than oil changes. I got it for 20k (sold for 90k new) and it has every option but the adaptive cruise control. I think I got a phenomenal deal and if someone walked up to me and said what would I sell it for, I'd say 18k.

  • my washing machine had the same issue

  • Did you just say "Luberisity"?

  • Jags are beautiful, but don’t hold value at all. I like this body style much better than the BMW or Mercs.

  • It's beautiful, what a steal the paint job is just wauw

  • Nice job

  • Why does he have to bring race and colour into the arguement it shows defeat and you have nothing else that validates or wins your arguement

  • Shows how ignorant the dealer was about their product.

  • Sir, surely the log you found in the engine was responsible for the knocking? Many thanks.

  • 'People of colour?' So, white is not longer a colour?

  • Jesus christ we went through two sets of tires, trashed a set of front rims, it burned oil, my dad drove the snot out of his XFR! he always hated Saskatchewan, cause the speed limit was slower then Alberta and the rest of canada. My dad drove as fast as he could across Saskatchewan, like we were going from Brandon, MB, to edmonton, AB, and then on to Vancouver, BC. He did between 280-320km/hr clean across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and alberta, we only slowed down once we hit Roger's pass! A jaguar XFR is the best road trip car we ever had! I mean we could have died, sure, but the whole family was loving it Haha! Now that I'm an adult I want an XFR, a 2010, black on black, tinted out with chrome trim and rims, just like his. I absolutely loved that car, so many good memories in that old XFR!

  • My dad owned one of these, a 2010, which didnt have a speed limiter so it did well past 300km/hr. That was actually the first car I went 300 in lol. Beautiful car, comfy for all 4 of us, and dad and I always used to go out at night and race mustang's and corvettes and shit! It was fun!

  • Did you say you are in Mexico? Do you live there?

  • "mexico" 😂

  • Cool looking vehicle

  • interesting my newer subi has a top oil filter.

  • I have used friction reducers for over 30 years in numerous cars and motorbikes from the old Slick 50 (not in the bikes) to X1R and ZX1 for about the last 10. Never had any problems with any of them, sometimes cars taken to well over 100k and all appear to work. I have had 2 instances of unrelated failures resulting in the engines running with a loss of oil pressure where I would have expected the engines to be trashed. In both, after sorting the oil pressure, the engines ran afterwards for many miles and one had chain driven cams which didn't fail or make undue noise afterwards. One car we still have is a 2008 Saab 9 5 aero which we bought at 5000 miles and still have it at 120k and it has just passed it's annual MOT. It has always had zero CO and hydrocarbon emmisions and it still does now at 120k. Main noticeable changes before and after for all the above treatments are reduced noise levels (maybe not so noticeable on a modern V8 as it should be pretty quiet from inside the car already), almost a complete loss of engine braking and on turbo engines they appear to spin up quicker resulting in less lag.

  • Where is stepmom 🙌🙌🙌

  • "Zed F"...

  • Yep , first thing I was going to say was don't use any pesticide. They mother nature do its thing.

  • You can always see if the knock is engine or SC couller by removing the supercharger belt and start it up. I ordered a long block 3800 for a grandprix gtp. Then found out it was a dirt cheap coupler.

  • I've been watching you for years this is how cat James from Albuquerque That Jag is the best looking car you've ever had good luck

  • Can I trade u this jaguar plus money since u only buy this for 7k at the auction...??

  • Man..... it's as if your word shooter is turbo charged.

  • Surprised shocked

  • I can't believe you got this at this price. I got mine for 16k and i absolutely love it, but damn i'd love it even more if it only cost 7 to 8k

  • This is a beautiful car. What are you plans? I am in the market for something like this. I am super jealous of your abilities and long to fine these diamonds in the rough.

  • Lexus LS430

  • It`s still a Jaguar, known for electrical issues. What is a log doing under the manifold? WTF?

  • Are those Raycons?

  • How about a Golf R32 in the price range?

  • I add hexagonal boron nitride and tungsten disulfide (tablespoon and 1/2 teaspoon respectively) to all my engines now and it smooths them out significantly. Idle revs are lower, they have more power and are less burdened, and get better mileage. The smallest grade powders also reduce wear by 55% or so depending on concentration by weight.

  • Had a 2013 camaro zl1 and it had the same problem. Got a good deal on that too

  • It's still a Jaaag. You know you buy a car that ages horrible but it's a Jaaaag

  • A good deal I’d you can live with the timing time guides timebomb on those cars and thousands of dollars of related repair ...

  • What part of Mexico is that

  • I retired about ten years ago. I never once used or recommended fluid additives of any kind. I still don't.

  • I bought a super charged Buick Regal 2 years ago, same super charger, same engine noise, same replacement part. It is a really nice car dirt cheap. Still driving it.

  • Wish you would do follow up on these buys. Maybe I just missed videos, same with the Maserati. So did you get it 100% and sell it or what?

  • Nah an a4 is the best deal. you can get them for nothing and they are super fun

  • dude your scarily obsessive hatred for rich is irritating to hear about. stop your negativity.
