HI All I started to drive my 06 plate 2.0 ltr diesel sport today, as I started to accelerate the car there was what I can only describe as a "Pop" then the car stated to run very lumpy and there was grey smoke coming from the exhaust, and an obvious loss of power. Any ideas on what this could be would be very welcome Thanks

I have had my Jaguar from new and yesterday when I started up the engine I had a beeping sound in the car there are no warning lights flashing on the dashboard or on the outside of the car, the noise is not audible on the outside. What is causing this?

I always wanted a Jag so got one. 2006 model, high mileage but good condition. And well serviced for most of the miles by top Jag garage. But having a few problems. When parking shuddering can be heard and felt and squealing can be heard. Have tried steering additive but no good. Been told belt is new. Plus over last couple of weeks, when I accelerated fairly fast in 2nd gear, plug lights come on and power reduces. Resets when I turn engine off and okay when driving steady. Seems as if there is a bit smoke when putting foot down in low gear. And lastly back end seems to give a bit of a fright when cornering at speed. (But not a might skid type speed) Any help would be appreciated to reassure me I have done the tight thing buying a Jag. Thanks

My 2004 X type, which I have had since new and has always been garaged, has recently developed a burning smell that leaks into the inside of the car when it stops moving. It is a second car and is only used for local trips where we live - it has 75,000 miles on clock and serviced regularly. A very good local mechanic has looked it over twice but is not a Jag expert, and can find nothing. Just reaching out to see if anyone has any ideas before I take it to the nearest Jag service center - which in itself is two hours drive away from where we live, hence my wish to find out what it could be before we drive it that far.

Hi, I have a 2.ooltr petrol X type that has suddenly developed a fault. I I try to accelerate, or climb a hill etc, I lose all power and the message, "cruise control no available" comes up on my screen. The car seems to surge with the power trying to come back in, almost as though the fuel is struggling to get through. The fault will clear if I back off the accelerator and the message clears with no warning lights on. Has anyone else come across this? Thanks.

Answer this question

Lynn, Cambridgeshire

Jaguar X-Type

Hi We recently had a tow bar fitted and since then the car is losing power at about 50 and very chuggy. going through the lower gears, the engine is very noisy and laboured and I cannot get more than about 60 top end and even that takes quite a long run at to get there. Previous to the tow bar being fitted it was absolutely fine and running on full powwer. I wondered if maybe in moving the exhaust to fit the tow bar whether it has loosened some debris that has been sucked up in to the EGR. We have put an EGR cleaner and injection cleaner through. There is no engine management light coming on but the engine is far from well. Any ideas please before I get a diagnostic ? Thanks Lynn

Answer this question

Ross Charles, Derbyshire

Jaguar X-Type

I disconnected my battery to change a nearside bulb and since reconnecting the power I have not been able to reset the time on my radio. The radio did not request the radio code after power loss, but I did lose the preset stations. I have tried all the reset instructions on the internet to no avail. If I hold down the mode button it goes straight to "clock reset" and will scroll through the hours and minutes but I cannot change any of the figures either using the search buttons or entering the digits. Is there a reset facility if all else fails. Any help would be gratefully received, thanks.

Answers

The Father-in-law has called round and showed me how to reset the clock. I have listed it on here because I have not seen this method listed anywhere else and may be of help to somebody else. Press the mode button until the clock reset appears, then use the "volume knob" to adjust the figures up and down, press mode to exit. Ross Charles from Derbyshire

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??

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???????.

Answers

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
