This actuator is a very common problem for the Diesel Jaguar X-Type & S-Types Built between 2003 and 2007.
The fault causes the flashing glow plug light to appear and the engine to go in to "limp mode" the problem normally starts out as an intermittent fault but then becomes more permanent.
These Actuators control the waste-gate on your turbo and are not available separately from the dealer, you have to buy the complete turbo for a small fortune.
* I am not affiliated in any way with this company.
A company can rebuild your own turbo actuator and/or supply replacement units from stock when available both options come with an unlimited mileage Lifetime warranty*.

Valve covers (or Rocker covers) are notorious for oil leaks on many types of cars. (Dont know yours) BUT If it is hot enough to boil oil, you have a serious FIRE Hazard ! That could easily burst into flame any time.
Are you sure its not water seeping out of the head gasket? That would readily sizzle on the heat shield and constantly sound like boiling water. Makes more sense to me.
What type of Jag dealer would miss this? Six times ! I would try a reputable local mechanic.
hi. my father has a 2002 x-type and was told by the jaguar dealer here that the transmission required NO routine maintenance as the lubricants and materials used were designed to last the entire life of the car. i have not been able to find any official statements to confirm or deny this, and can only advise as we were advised by the dealership
hello, you might try taking battery cables loose from battery, count to 7-10 seconds, put them back on this should clear computer, also you will have to reset your radio stations, diesel motors are pretty simple, if this dont work then it may have to go to dealer, they do pretty much the same thing.
If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.
if you went to a dealer then that sounds about right. they tend to be expensive. you got to remember though that most the time 90k mile maintenence includes radiator flush, oil change, tranny oil change, emissions checks, possibly water pump check. cooling system pressure check. abs checks, brake checks, steering and suspension checks. there is alot of maintenance that can be done. you need a list of the stuff they are trying to charge you. honestly if they do all the work required then 3300 my not be to bad
