Hi!

If everything goes as planned I will order an XF next week for delivery in march (don't want it delivered in the middle of winter), and we will go strait on a weeks holiday when the car is delivered.

But that left me wondering - what does the owners manual say about running in the engine?

Hi! :)
There is no specific run in period, this is done on the production line, however I would advise you take it easy for the first 1000 miles because.. well because I do! :lol:
And obviously let the engine and gearbox get up to temperature before you do anything other than gentle acceleration. :)

Hi, from the manual

RUNNING-IN
Apart from a few precautionary
recommendations, there are no strict
running-in procedures for this vehicle.
By observing the following advisory
precautions you will ensure maximum engine,
transmission and brake life for your vehicle:
Engine
• Allow the engine to reach operating
temperature before operating at engine
speeds over 3 500 rev/min.
• Vary the speed frequently.
• From 1 500 kilometres (940 miles)
onwards, gradually increase performance
of the vehicle up to the permitted
maximum speed.

Thank you!

Just one more question - how do you monitor engine temperature in the XF?

I don't recall a temperature gauge from the test drive - and can't see one on pictures of the instrument cluster?

Thank you for your answers.

Can anyone tell me why they haven't designed the XF to show oil and water temperature :!: :?:

this is the only point on the XF I wish too:
I miss a water temperature gauge (even if it would be in a digital display) :(

because the time the motor reaches propriate temp is not the same in summer and winter (where I live)
