Hi I'm after selling my xtype with 102k miles on the clock. It's running fine and I've just taken the egr valve off and given it a clean and going to get the error code wiped with my mates diagnostic kit Anyways I'd used my car and drive home from work about 20 miles, got home and a man came to view it He asked me to turn the engine on and then removed the oil filler cap n immediately shook his head and said there was too much 'Back pressure' and went on his way Now there was a bit of smoke coming out but nothing excessive really and baring in mind the engine was hot I didn't think that would be a big issue Can anyone help me out with some advice

Following a short fast-ish run at 60 mph on the M5, last Wednesday (to clear out any crap in the system), on checking out my oil level today Sunday I was met with oil slicks all around the windscreen reservoir area offside.

Following a short, sharp sprint on the local motorway (to clean out the system), a few days later checking my engine oil I noticed oil had sprayed from the engine/off side onto the area around the windscreen res unit. I have cleaned it up and given the car another fast run and nothing to indicate where the oil shot from. The car still runs well and no oil leaks show. I hope the problem is not an eye watering repair. Can anyone give advice?

Answer this question

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?

When my Jaguar X-Type diesel gets warmed up trying to keep speed steady I start getting a miss, but soon as I put my foot down a bit the miss goes and when I go back to keeping the pedal steady the miss kicks in again. I had an egr valve replaced 2015, fuel pressure switch 2015, diesel cleaner 2015, all in Jan 2015, service in April 2015 and all filters changed, changed to shell diesel plus, but still have the miss.

Hi, my car is diesel 2005 Jaguar x type 2.0D SE. This car has been parked at a garage without running for about 3 month before I bought it. Now my car is having long cranking and after about 1 minute cranking it starts. And also I noticed at about 70 mph car goes to limp mode. Once engine stopped and restarted it runs nicely and comes again. I heard that I need to replace EGR, but why long cranking? Will I have to replace the fuel pump which is inside the tank? ( no smoke on running) Thank you in advance. Kunku from Sri Lanka

Inter cooler pipe left side near the abs block, in front of the alternator belt. They are a common fault, they split. Replace it with with a silicon one.

Roy Scott, Derbyshire

When the car is locked and you try to unlock it the driver`s door will unlock always but the other 3 will not unlock, even from the inside. The batteries have all been changed, the fob unlock pushed twice and it makes no difference. This is an intermittent fault. Starting the car and shutting off sometimes clears it. I have been in touch with main dealers and non have seen this fault. Any suggestions as it could happen where we are locked in the car? Jaguar cars say to see the main dealer then let them know but if someone else has this it would help. I asked at the Jaguar Driver`s club but they have not heard of it. Thank You
