Question about 2005 Jaguar X-Type
Hi, i have an x-type jaguar estate 2.0 d se 2005, when travelling at a constant speed, high or low, at certain speed ranges the engine is stuttering like a lack of fuel type thing. It does not happen on accelerating just cruising or sometimes decelerating.
2nd problem is when the engine is at idle there is quite a loud rattling noise in the engine bay like something is loose not in the engine but attached to the engine, it completely disappears when the accelerator is pressed, ie the revs are up, only occurs on idling. It does fluctuate high and low but is constantly there.
I had the same problem (X-type 2.0d 2004). The stutter was cured on mine by getting the ECU fashed with the latest firmware. This is a known problem and the update does cure it (£28), I didn't bother with all the tests the garage wanted to.
The noisey engine at idle is the alternator belt. It resonates at idle and causes the noise, There is a modified bottom pulley, tensioner and belt kit, but it is rather expensive ~£200 plus fitting (around 4 hours labour). Mondeo's have the same problem but that kit doesn't fit the Jag.
Hope this helps

My Jag expert, told me it was a missing rubber ring (prob corroded over time) that causes the engine to make a noise against the engine connection to the sub frame. He told me the part cost about 5 GPB but he had to take the engine out, so many hour of labour. He then said that it doesn't cause any harm, just makes a noise, so if you can live with it, don't do it.
