Default Quick oil level check

If you don't want to wait around for the 10 minute timer to check your oil after a run, or if you want to check the oil level when it has sat for some time...

There is a quick check method or a short-cut if you will, you can perform;

1. Open the Hood

2. Get in the car with the key-fob and close the doors

3. Push start button without touching the brake

4. Let all the electronics settle down and then use the Menu/OK button on the left side of the steering wheel...navigate around until you get the "Vehicle Information" screen..

5. Select "Oil Level"..If it says "information not available"...Press the cruise control "CANcel" button twice..the Oil Level will then be displayed.

Great tip, since there's no dipstick. Tired of car manufacturers making it impossible to do basic maintenance just so that we have to take it in just for oil changes... Used to be for the transmission, now the oil, annoying! I'll still change the oil myself anyway.

Castrol Edge Professional E 0w20 is the only oi that can be used for the Jag, just learned about that, this oil change thing, which used to be easy back in the day, is starting to be annoying.

I am told that the V6 engines don't get an oil change until 17,000 miles and the diesel versions go 20,000 miles. Isn't that kind of crazy?

That's because they are spec'd for the high mileage Castrol oil, only sold in Europe and the US dealers..period..nowhere else can it be had..

The OM states and the car will remind you as well; for the V6 it is every 16,000 miles OR 12 months..whichever comes first.

the 2.0d it is 20,000 miles or 2 years, whichever comes first...The car will put up a notice message on your center info screen telling you "Service will soon be required."
