sounds like you have a ford mondeo and not a jag too me .please re describe the symptons .i have a xj6 4 litre and its a lovely car ,never goes wrong and if it does i polish it and then works fine again .JUST WISH I COULD AFFORD THE PETROL ,at over a euro a litre i can afford to use it on a sunday ,and as for the road tax?? good job the insurance is cheap at my time of life
check fuel pipe from tank.there might be some or sever kink.Also worth a chat at fords as they have a lot of exp with mondeo.check the air filter,it might be blocked.this problem also occurs when the ECU gets locked up.check the glow plugs if they are ok then you need to calidrate your injectors.
You need to have the fault codes read,this will point you in the right direction,the revs die as it is going into limp home mode to protect itself,by turning the ignition off and then on you reset the ecu untill it detects the fault again.
The glow plug coming on on the Diesel Mondeo is an engine management fault indicator. The car goes into "limp mode" when this happens or in other words safety mode is triggered. This explains your loss of power.
To find the cause of this light coming on - the car will have to go on an OBD scanner at a service shop which will read the codes stored in the cars computer and give you an answer as to what is causing the fault to show.

hi there, you will need a diagnostic check carried out to locate the exact fault, most garages have the equipment to carry out these checks so you won't need to visit your ford agent, a common fault on the engines is the camshaft sensor these cost around £20 and are very easy to replace, however once you have it tested you will now your exact fault, hope this helps
