Re: 02 JAGUAR X TYPE 3.0 CHK ENG LGHT ON CAR SHAKES AS...
Go to checker and have them run the code for check engine light. it will probably come up as a lean code bank 1 or/and bank 2. on my x-type it was an o-ring in the intake that was cracked mechanic found it with by spraying carb and choke cleaner around the intake components.the shaking.... if it occurs at higher rpms is your car being in limp home mode i think about 3000 rpms will go away when intake problems are solved. car cutting off ? take it jag maybe a weak fuel pump,clogged jet pump or clogged fuel filter just did all of the above to my 02 x-type 3.0 sport w/ 75,000 miles.

Very common on this car is the EGR valve, it is basically an Exhaust Gas Recycler it reuses the unburnt fumes from the exhaust and pushes them back through the engine to burn again. If this part has failed or has become dirty which is quite often the case on Diesel cars then it would certainly cause the smell in the cab and the ticking.
It's worth mentioning that these can be very expensive around £250 at worst but in most cases you can remove them your self and clean them with carburetter cleaner, don't use anything else though.
Inside the EGR valve is a small sensor not dis similar to that of an air sensor, just spray it with the cleaner leave it to dry naturally and then refit it. if it has worked you will notice the car will feel more responsive to. and the ticking would stop.
probably an intake problem easy.... air filter? harder leak in intake somewhere try the carb and choke cleaner start car and spray around intake components. i don't know about the sensor itself. cruise not available will come on when car is in limp home mode and the shaking will occur like in your last post at high rpms. i'm not a mechanic but have recently had similar problems.
could be an exhaust leak, or a bad gas cap. gas caps have a vent that allows air to escape from the tank safely, if you notice a depressurizing sound when you take the gas cap off it should be replaced, it's possible that the air is building up in the tank and leaking out somewhere it shouldn't be, in which case this is very unsafe so please be careful if you must drive it this way.
The sulphur smell is the result of the emmisions control system. I have an 06 Expedition with the exact same engine and emmisions system as yours. When the engine is cold, you don't smell that sulphur smell, but as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature, the exhaust gasses smell sulphury. Nothing wrong with your ride - they all do that. The dealership sometimes spray the underbody with some type of rubber to protect the vehicle against rust. This rubber stuff sometimes get sprayd on the exhaust as well and then you will smell "burning tires" after driving the vehicle. This will go away after a few thousend miles though.
