Hi, have the usual problem of rear nearside knocking when going over bumps, or hitting potholes etc. Over the past year, have had 4 sets of drop links, replaced the anti roll bar bushes, fitted new shocks and changed both the upper and lower arms. There is no movement in the hub bush or front bush,,, I'm at a loss. It either knocks once or occasionally get a reverberating knock. Three different garages have had a look, and they all changed the drop links,,, hence the number fitted. Any ideas anyone??

When my car stops in traffic the engine starts to rev up to 2000 rpm. It then drops a little when when I engage the clutch , the temperature starts to get higher. If you turn the car off it will go back to 1000 rpm. Could anyone explain what the problem is.

Can you tell me why my front washer pump works fine but the rear washer and head lamp washer do not they just seem to have stopped checked for blockages in the lines and found none also checked power to pumps and both are receiving full 12volts to them , could there be an eating problem and if so where do I start looking???????.
Sounds like the jet is blocked. If you use screenwash solution it builds up and then blocks the jets. Try removing the hose and running through with hot but NOT boiling water and see if it passes through. If this clears the problem then only use water without any additive in future. Happened to me on my front screen washers and this fixed the problem. Jeff Steeden from Yorkshire

Engine light on smoking on low rev badly no power dudes Absolutely boots out smoke.
Diesel X type ? Could be a number of things, eg: 1. Fuel air ratio so possible fuel filter, air filter or dirty Maf sensor. Pretty easy and cheap to change / clean. 2. Pipe adrift or split from turbo or under airbox. (left of battery.) 3. Turbo actuator pcb board has a dry joint or damaged connection. Disconnect arm and 3 bolts. Unclip cover. Possible soldering required. 4. Turbo actuator arm has restricted travel due to soot buildup in the turbo. Variable vanes unable to move as needed, requires cleaning. consider turbo mod. Can see on youtube, drill and tap hole on side of turbo, can clean with Mr.Muscle. I have done this, it works perfectly. 5. Injector issues. dirt stuck in nozzle, irregular spray patterns, ultrasonic cleaning could work. injector damaged internaly, found with leak back test, for most people new injector required.

Hi guys i plugged in a obd11 tester to see wot was wrong with the car. I get DTC codes P1646 ANDP1647. So i dont really get these bank 1and bank 2 so to simply put i changed the first o2" sensor the one at the front on the exhaust manifold right by the water pipe with the grey plug. Then i changed the one on the other exhaust manifold the one with the grey plug. The reason i say grey plugs is theres four sensors up front 2 with grey plugs and 2 with black plugs. Also i changed the spark plugs to the original spec. Im doing the back brakes tomorrow im hoping changing the sensors has done the trick. I will reset the DTC codes and see if it done the trick.

Black smoke problem. This has gradually got worse over the last year. Driving around town i don`t have the problem. Take it on the motorway driving at 2000rpm plus after 30/40 mins you can feel the car holding back. You then get a burst of black smoke out of the exhaust, then all is ok for another 30/40 mins. I have a injector cleaner in at the mo. Wynns professional. I have cleaned the E.G.R valve. Just a bit sooty/ tared up. After putting the diesel additive in i drove the car in 4th 3000rmp plus for 20 mins, no problem with the stutter and black smoke. Once i went into 5th, reducing the revs the smoke started again. It feels like possible exhaust fumes building up then clearing. Any idea`s. Ray

Since I had a new egr my car over revs when accelerating for a short while then settles, could it be because of the fitting of the egr?
Susan, take your car to an engine diagnostics expert and have him/her plug into the OBD and ask for the ECU to be 'told' that there is a new EGR fitted.. the ECU needs to be told this so that it can learn how to communicate properly with it and understand the signals the EGR is sending to the ECU.... while it is connected, have him/her do a diagnostic scan to see if there are any other fault codes coming up. It won't be as costly as going to Jag dealer. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi I let my Jag idle for an hour reving it up every now and then and there was still steam coming out of the exhaust. Is this normal? The temperature went up as normal and the fan kicked in as normal. The water level stayed constant so it wasn't using any water. Thanks Andy
Andy, part of the by product of combustion of carbon based fuel.... have a look when you are following some modern vehicles and they occasionally drop what seems to be a fair amount of water from the exhaust... burning fuel creates carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide water and a host of other gases. water vapour condenses at a lower temperature and reforms as water.. that's why some exhausts rust from inside out !
