Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
I have change the fuel pressuar sensor two times and still haveing the same problems the fuel always seem to be empty and when i go to put fuel in the car it only takes 6 gallions of fuel then when i drive it gets no power and acks like it going to cut off
Have you done a fuel pressure & volume test? If the fuel pump is going bad, it will have the same symptoms. When was the last time the fuel filter was replaced? Are you sure it's a fuel related problem and not another sensor? I would get ahold of a scan tool and monitor tps, iac and some other sensors too. Make sure maf signal is reading good, those also get dirty and/or shorted out causing similar issues. Egr is another problem, if it's got some carbon stuck in the pintle, it will cause a lean condition.

Fuel Pressure Sensor ---at fuel tank ??
You obviously are not testing a thing if you
replaced it even once
There are a couple of reasons for your issue
& they have to do with the vehicles system strategy
You need a repair shop to look that up & then diagnose
according to a recommended proceedure to resolve
A bad fuel sending unit will make the car think your less
than 15% fuel in the tank & possibly reduce power or
shut off--on some cars it will,yours has to be looked up

SOURCE: my jaguar s type has
Had this problem on a v6 3l petrol. No codes present.Connected laptop to diagnostics and drove jag for a few miles.Found fuel pressure to start off at over 55 psi but slowly drop to 20 psi and less until car came to a halt.
Waited a couple of minutes hey presto car starts,pressure back to over 55psi running fine for a while.tested power supply to fuel pump,ok at constant 12 volt. Changed inline fuel regulator and fuel filter,still the same.Checked fuel tank for any possibility of a vacuum occurring,no not that either.Had to bite the bullet and change the in tank fuel pump,problem solved runs fine.This car had also been to jags and because no fault code appeared it must be alright! I have learnt that over my forty year mechanical experience that common sense basics must also be checked out and not totally depend on computer fault codes.Hope this helps.bw Johnnyman.

Hi I think your problem is connected with your Air mass meter if you look at your engine from the n/side it is situated just after the air filter box it has a spring clip at one end a flat metal thin box with a lead attached and a jubilee clip at the other end. Hope this helps my 4.0 lt x300 did the same thing

Testimonial: "thanks for the advice, this was changed 7 months ago but i will check it out again"
The rubber pipe feeding air from the intercooler to the bottom of the EGR valve is probably split - this was the problem on mine - exact same symptoms!

The transmission is faulty - most likely one (or more of) the solenoids for the clutches on the planetary gears are defective and it jams the gearbox, causing the engine to stall.
You will have to put the car on a diagnose machine to find out exactly what part has failed. But replacing it/them will be in all cases a complicated and expensive job: they are inside the casing of the transmission and it will have to be taken off and dismantled to replace them.

Hi Tony, If the car ran out of fuel the fuel rail will be empty. Pressurized fuel must fill the rail before injection is possible. The pressure of the fuel in the rail should be somewhere around three point eight bar. Crank the vehicle for about forty seconds at a time and then allow the starter to cool. Repeat until the car starts. A better method is to identify the fuel pump relay, remove it and bridge the switching connections, but that can be dangerous unless you have a knowledge of electrical circuits. Regards John
