Jaguar X-Type Estate 2004

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

Have you checked thet your cam sensor conection has not come loose? Take the plastic cover off the top and it is located in the front under the rail in the middle. It is around £20 off ebay, a Ford Mondao is the same, mine used to cut out but replacing it has cured it 30,000miles ago Roy Scott from Derbyshire

Hi, my S-type 3-0 litre auto v6 petrol from cold and driving around town under 40 mph drives fine, but when going onto A roads going from 40 to 50 or more it judders and holds back. If I kick down I can ride this out but then it starts to judder once again, can you help? Cheers steve from Essex

Jaguar S-Type

I have just purchased a 2003 s type 2.5l se auto jaguar, can I have the headlights adjusted to suit spanish driving regulations or do I have to change the 2 headlight units. How much do these 2 units cost, and can thy be purchased from jaguar directly or do I have to get them from a dealer.

Answers

Ok. I am not a dealer, I am a purchaser of a Jaguar S type 2.5L SE from a friend and to get it registered in Spain has been a pain. If it is a UK registered car then you must get it through the ITV. I have sorted out a number of people who do this. They only want to do the paperwork and hand the rest to mechanics etc. who charge! I can give you the name of the person who has done everything, including purchasing and fitting of the needed headlights, the new insurance, all of the paperwork and at a reasonable price. What is your estimate for these costs? You can contact me Tel. 699 15 75 38Best Regards: ColinColin Cameron from Spain

Speedometer and odometer does not work. Gas and temp and rpm gauges work. Do I need to pull instrument cluster and send it off for repair?

Answers

Speedometer works but the tachometer and the accumulative milometer don't. I have just been able to get the radio and clock etc to work but the battery lost power. This is being recharged, the battery is quite new. We had a problem to enable the car to get through the Spanish ITV, the driver`s air bag light was fixed. Do you think the technician could have disturbed the wiring behind the module for 'revs, speedo,petrol gauge etc and the other illuminated signals? One especially the amber signal for the engine. We are so far from a Jaguar dealer and they are not very interested when trying to find Euro headlamps to replace British types. We have done this ourselves, we now have Spanish registration plates etc. This is a lovely car but we want it perfect. Would appreciate if you can help!Colin Cameron from Spain

Jaguar S-Type

Hi all, I've got a problem with my S type 3.0. The bonnet release cable has come apart somewhere under the bonnet so it cannot be opened on the pull lever inside the car. I removed the mesh from the grill and saw the catch mechanism holding the bonnet down it was fairly easy to release, but I didn't realise there was another on the other side of the bonnet! I can see some of it but it`s covered by a small metal box around 4"x 3". How on earth can I get around this? I've tried everything and cannot think of a way around this one. Has anybody got any ideas at all? Thanks everybody.

That happened to my 2001 s type I took a wire coat hanger, bent it straight, then bent smal hook at one end, poke it through the cooler-grill and then over to the left inner side to catch the latch of the actual puller-cable of the bonnet. pull quickly and the bonnet will pop open Kieran from Hampshire

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?

Answers

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

Jaguar X-Type Estate 2009

On two occasions, the cover under the engine has come loose after my Jaguar X-Type Estate after it has been in a garage to be serviced. Inevitably, the garage says that the original problem was nothing to do with them and that it was probably due to accidental damage. Is it common for this cover to come loose on X-Types? Is it actually necessary to replace it with a new one? Does it actually achieve much i.e. improve air flow, reduce engine noise, keep engine bay clean?

Answers

Yes, I’ve had the same fault with mine. The cover has actually come loose and chomped on some wires meaning I’ve got to get it repaired. However, I’ve been advised the cover has no benefit to the car other than to show it’s a Jaguar once you lift the bonnet. John Smith from Shropshire

I removed mine completely, after as you say it interfered with wires beneath. I am assured that other than making the top of the engine tidy its only other purpose is to keep it clean. phil hoare from West Midlands

Jaguar XF 2009

I have a 3ltr Jag XF which had the DBF Full See Handbook Amber light come on. I was advised by Jaguar to apply the "regeneration procedure" which I did and the light went off. This occurred 2 weeks post warranty (and my annual Jaguar service which did not advise of high soot levels). Three months later the same message came up but went straight to red, without any warning. I am now advised the Filter cannot be regenerated and it needs replacing at a cost of £2,000!!

I have a Jaguar X Type 3.0 which gives me problems when I try to pump gas. The pump nozzle won't stay on - keeps clicking off and won't let the gas flow steadily into the tank. Never ever had this problem with another car. Can't figure if it's something I'm doing wrong or not. Has anyone had this problem?

Try holding the base of the filler nozzle at the 9-o'clock position in the filler opening; use the notch where the door latches as a guide.It is designed this way! Bill from United States of America

In the United Kingdom are you allowed to retro fit the metal Jaguar to The Bonnet of the car?

Answers

I live in Australia now but I bought my S type in the UK where I was living, before moving to Australia and takinhg my pride and joy with me. I am pretty sure you can retro fit the metal Jaguar to the bonnet. I bought one once off e-bay, but when I went to put it on I realised it was going to look crap and that I would have to drill holes into the bonnet, which I am not keen on so I decided against it. Do you really want to put huge holes in your bonnet? In saying that I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed as all the pre 2001 models have them and who's to know that yours didn't come with it factory fitted? No-one would know so just do it if you don't mind drilling the holes in your bonnet. Angela from Australia

Hi, I have a 2005 X Type Jaguar Estate, my problem is filling the car at a petrol station. The petrol pump nozzle when put into the filler keeps cutting out as if the tank is full, so in order to fill it I have to keep the nozzle out and let only a small amount of fuel in . It takes about seven minutes to fill a half full tank. As I'm on the forecourt so long I'm concerned I'll be charged rent!!! Can anyone solve my problem please? Thanks Stuart.

Answers

Fully Insert the nozzle and rotate through 90degrees so that the cut out sensor isn't at the bottom and it should pump just fine Tony from Moray

Hello there, I wonder if anyone tell me why, after switching off the engine, do I hear a slight noise coming from behind the dash, roughly to the right of the radio/cd player area, it sound's like a cooling fan which is used in PC's to cool a heat sink, but I have been told that there is a processor in that location, but it seems to run the whole time? What is it please.

Answers

Hi Ron, Although I dont have an answer to your question, i have the same noise. I dont thinks its a problem as the car runs fine. Regards, Paul. Paul from Worcestershire

I have the same noise on my 2004 diesel. Sounds like some sort of humming noise coming from the dash. I did think this might drain the battery over time but have had the car 12 months now and had no problems with it. Rob from Shropshire
