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

Hi guys, I have a 55reg X-Type 2.0d which has been fine up until yesterday when I went to overtake a car, it jolted and I lost all power with loads of black smoke and juddering. Also when the car goes over 2000ish revs it makes a whooshing sound. Any help would be really appreciated, cheers, Ben.

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. If you manage to see in the narrow space you will see black stuff coming out from it. If you manage to feel around it you should feel the split somewhere. Antonello from Berkshire

Roy Scott, Derbyshire

Jaguar X-Type

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

My 2003 Jaguar X-type 3.0 has been running hot only on the freeway...It reads, cruise control not available and the engine light stays on...I pull over and turn off the car for a couple of minutes and start it back up and it runs fine for 10 minutes and repeats the same thing...The coolant tank is full, but when it initially happened the coolant tank was empty, I filled it up and it is not leaking on the ground and has maintained its proper level for a couple of weeks...I went to a mechanic and he cleared the codes and said that it may be air in the system and to run the car for a half hour with the coolant cap off and with the heat up high in the car...I did that and drove the car a week with no problem...I then rode the freeway for 30 minutes and no problem, however when coming back 8 hours later that day on the freeway it overheated again...I then took off the coolant cap immediately after pulling over and stuck my finger in the coolant and it was hot, but not scorching hot... Is my car really overheating or is it just showing it's overheating?

Hope I can help you guys. My engine management light came on, I got in touch with my mechanic and what had happened was the fixing locators on the engine cover had broken or come adrift and were pushing on the wiring loom for the air flow meter. All I did was go to a scrap yard and find a Mondeo, find the loom and cut about a foot off, unplug it then find someone who can wire it in and should be fine.
