Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
I have a 2004 JaguarX Type 2.0D. It has just over 68,000 miles done. On 3 occasions,the power almost went down to nothing,and the diesel heater-plug light started flashing. Pressing the accelarator pedal didn't make much difference. It went along slowly,as if it were just idling. The first and second times it happened,I switched off the engine. After 30 secs or so,I started up again,and the car ran perfectly. On the last occasion,the engine cut out. It's been about 3 months since it last happened. There was a space of between a month and 2 months,between each time it happened. Has anyone else had this problem?
Sounds like your EGR valve has failed,They usually become gunged up and stick open or shut which will give you a loss of power.The valve is not the easiest thing to change but also not the hardest,The dealer will have to clear the trouble code from your car though....hope this helps
