anthony bateman, Northumberland

Jaguar X-Type

I have a Jaguar diesel estate 2.0.cc 2005 with problems, it runs great but when the engine gets up to temperature and is trying to keep the throttle at a steady speed I start to get a miss. Also it seems to use a lot more fuel than it should as I don't horse the car, when I put my foot down a little it runs fine but when going back to keep the throttle steady the miss kicks in again. It`s had a new egr valve fitted in Jan 2015 and fuel pressure switch, also had a service with all filters changed and sometimes the throttle will stick in higher gear as if the choke is stuck on. I have checked under the bonnet for any loose wires or connections but can`t see anything, could it be something electric that is heating up and making the car to misfire or is it something to do with the throttle?

Answers

Lift the bonnet, remove the oil filler cap and then pull the plastic engine cover up and off. Then put the oil cap back on. Have a look around where the six injectors enter the engine and you could see one of them has a damp oily deposit around it. If you see this, then this is the area of the problem. Start the engine and it may show the exhaust leaking from here and making a chuffing sound. Most likely problem (but not conclusive) is a leaking injector seal. In any case it will be a leak in this area. Note, if one is leaking it may be worth replacing all six as they have all done similar miles. Ian Graham from Kent

I have a Jaguar X-Type 2.2 diesel 5 years old. After 1 hour and half of highway driving the coil warning light began flashing on my display. There were no other warning lights but I did notice a loss of power (no turbo) when I accelerated. I turned off the engine and then started again and everything returned to normal. After 1 hour again the same problem, it happened 4 times and everytime I switched off and started again and the problem disappeared. I changed the battery a few months ago. Even if it was not cheap I suppose it’s not a high quality battery. Could it be the cause of the problem? Thanks.

At around 50 mph my Jaguar X-Type Estate 2d has a slight misfire and blows out smoke (not black). I have had a new turbo plus EGR valve. Any ideas would be much appreciated as my local garage doesn’t know what to do and it is driving me mad. Could injectors behave like this?

Answers

I can’t help you mate, but I’ve recently bought a 2008 X-Type Sports Premium 2.2 diesel and mine has been doing exactly the same thing. At speeds of approx 45 -50 mph there is a sudden judder and misssing, like you could be in the wrong gear, but it isn’t that. Baffling ain’t it? Kev from Staffordshire

Mine has always done this ever since I bought it; second hand with only 20,000 miles on the clock. Always at around 50mph and the garage have no idea. The smoke might be clearing of the exhaust, which lots of cars do, but is equally worrying. Now my front driver’s window does not completely close and whistles. It maybe time to say goodbye to this one! Margaret Marks from Suffolk

My O5 X-Type does the same. In my case the injectors go out of sink. I took to my local John Dandy Motors and they recalibrated the injectors and all was ok. John Tipper from Gloucestershire

Jaguar S-Type 2006

I have a strong smell inside my Jaguar S-Type coming through my heater. I think it smells like exhaust fumes. It`s an S type XS turbo diesel 2006 model. Any suggestions as to the cause?

You may be required to change the oil separator. Has the car been serviced regularly? Rick Hanson from Staffordshire

The problem with the car will be down to the auxiliary heater unit which is located on the passenger side (UK vehicles) front just behind the bumper, nearly in line with the fog lamp, this is the exhaust outlet for the heater unit. There was a rectification for this fault of fumes entering the car by Jaguar, this was free of charge during the warranty period, however now it would be chargeable. The alleged cure was to reduce the fuel flow into the heater by fitting a restriction in line. I am sure if you ask your dealer, they should be able to provide you with a copy of the recall sheet. I am about to modify mine with a extended exhaust outlet pipe to take the fumes away from the front apron, the pipe is available from any Webasto or Eberspacher supplier or of course ebay,. It is a flexible aluminium convoluted tube which is very flexible, this can then be fitted to the very short stubby pipe under the front corner and run away from the front area to stop the problem. If your fumes are not just fumes but a lot of smoke, this is unburnt fuel, as such it is more than just poor outlet. The heater itself has a gauze wire inside, rather like a Brillo pad without soap. The fuel is sprayed onto this pad and ignited, this then forms a very good heat source from which the heat is taken and then passed into the water system via heat transfer. Obviously the heat is not in direct contact with the water. If you have excess smoke a Webasto or Eberspacher dealer could service the unit for you and replace the gauze pad and service the injector. Hope that helps someone out there. If you need to know anymore or I can help in some-way, feel free to send an email to info@mercuryarv.com Kind regards Simon Edgecombe from Kent (Mercury RV)

According to my local garage he says it is a faulty injector, which is leaking and the pressure is forcing diesel fumes back through the injector building up under the coupling and the heater is drawing it in. To fix the problem he says he will take the injector out and replace the ring which seals it and this should cure the problem what do you think? Is this feasible? Tom Masheder from Lanarkshire

Hi, I have had the same problem, it was the flexible hose on the auxiliary heater exhaust, located front left wing, access via lower access panel., I managed to replace it with a section of a truck night heater hose. cost £20.00 Roy from Leicestershire
