My X-Type petrol has recently started to lose acceleration until it comes to a complete standstill - slight misfiring , hesitate almost if blockage somewhere . I can drive normally for around 15 mins before this symptom kicks in - only able to clear it by turning off engine and driving briefly before this happens again. I would be very grateful for any advice or solution . Kind Regards

Answer this question

Paul, Worcestershire

Jaguar X-Type

Hi, Ive got a 55 plate X Type 2L TD estate, great car and use it for work. Its done less that 100,000 miles and runs really well a apart from black smoke bellows out the back end when i accelerate. I have tried various petrol stations and injection cleaners but none seem to work. My local garage recommends replacing the high pressure fuel pump but seems a little extreme. Could this be injectors, the injector rail or high pressure pump? Thanks in advance. Paul.

Answers

Hi Paul, when mine did the masses of black smoke thing it was the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve that was full of black tar and goo! In fact the whole inlet manifold gets absolutely clogged because they inject exhaust gasses back into the engine (utter madness) . You can get EGR cleaner in a spray can and clean it all out yourself quite easily. It will be like a different car. Jon Nolan from Yorkshire

Jaguar X-Type

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.

Hi, when I fill my XType Estate at the petrol station it takes an age as I cannot insert the nozzle of the pump without it automatically switching off, so have to have the nozzle on the edge of the filler and very slowly fill up. Needless to say it takes an age. I hope someone can solve this problem for me. Cheers Stuart

Answer this question

Steve Fields, Somerset

Jaguar X-Type

Driving home tonight 25 miles into my journey and the car was going great - then a loud bang from behind me, the car starts juddering. I depress the clutch and the car coasts. I engage clutch and the car picks up, then judders sporadically in any gear with other noises from the engine bay. I've read others say about rushing air. I think I might be getting that as well but the bang concerns me most, it sounded metallic and expensive! The only other thing is that for some while when I accelerated, mostly in 4th and 5th, I heard a metallic growling sound from the rear of the car, whether this is related I'm beginning to wonder. EGR valve was done last year for a constant engine management light fault. Any suggestions?

Hi Barrie, I have a 2005 X Type 2.0 Diesel Estate and just had the same issues. If it is a diesel get the fuel injectors cleaned and use fuel additive to keep them clean. I would advise half filling your tank with a higher grade fuel as they have more lubricants in the fuel. Also give the car a good blat down the motorway to give it a good clear out. Also replace the fuel filter. They need a good blast down the motorway if you are only using the car to travel around town. Hope this helps. Iain, Bolton iain from Lancashire

Hi Barrie I presume you have a diesel? If so the problem sounds like a typical blocked Egr valve. A dirty job but fairly easy - remove and clean the egr and replace preferably with a blanking plate (need solid plate for 2 litre and a 10mm holed plate for 2.2). I also agree using half and half v power diesel / ordinary and a forte or such like diesel treetment will help keep injectors etc clean. Hope this helps. Tony Albion from Tyne and Wear

On my Jaguar I have a problem that sometimes the brake system light used to come on and I couldn't accelerate anymore, so I had to turn it off and turn it on again and it did work again generally. I changed the brakes, rotors and it fixed the problem which never happemed again. Last week the brake system light came on again so I did the same thing, turned it off but this time the light didn`t go off, so I unplugged the battery for a while and it did go off, so I put new tyres, checked brake fluid which is good. So what`s the problem now?

Jason Walker, Surrey

Jaguar X-Type

I have recently bought a Jaguar X Type 2.2 auto Diesel, with 45,000 miles on the clock. For the first 200 miles the car drove fine all up and down through the gears, then it went into limp mode with the glow plug amber light flashing, together with gearbox fault on the dash. I stopped the car, restarted with no faults but after about 5 miles it came on again. I was told this is the EGR Valve, mine has the DPF filter. I had this replaced with a brand new one, again the car was fine for about 50 miles but now I have the same fault back again. If I stop and restart the car it may be fine for about a mile or 20 miles but returns with this same problem. Can you help please? Thanks

I had the same problem with my 2.0D which I bought in Feb with 49k. It turned out to be a corroded circuit board which mean't that the turbo was cutting out, usually a short distance into the journey as you are experiencing. Don't know what the cost was as it was under warranty but the board was replaced and I haven't had the problem since. May not be the same as your problem but good luck : ) Andrew Ogden from Hampshire

I have a few issues. First, when my 2002 Jaguar X-Type Sport is cold and braking it emits a loud whining sound. Also, when cold and braking, the brakes will pulse. Occasionally the ABS light on the control panel will light after the pulsing, but goes off eventually or upon restart. Also, there is a loud click from the gear selector when the brake is depressed and released. I`m not sure if these are interconnected or not? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

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.
