Jaguar Australia—XF 3.0L and 4.2L Petrol 2010MY Vehicles—Fuel Transfer Pipe
What are the defects?
The fuel transfer tube inside the fuel tank has been incorrectly designed which can lead to the fuel transfer pipe becoming either kinked sufficiently to prevent fuel flow, or inserted too far into the fuel delivery module which could restrict the flow.
Under certain driving conditions the vehicle will suffer fuel starvation whilst showing a fuel level (<1/4) still available on the gauge.
Power Assisted Steering will be lost once the vehicle drops below the torque converter speed lock-up threshold however the mechanical steering will remain functional with some increase in the steering effort required.
Brake vacuum reservoir replenishment will also be lost once the convertor speed lock up threshold is reached, at this point depending upon brake use the vehicle will lose power assistance, however the brakes will remain functional with some increase in pedal effort. A restart will not be possible until the vehicle has been refueled.
