My old disel isn't as fancy as your Jag :) but I had a problem like this and it was worse when the weather is cold. I found that 5 out of 6 of my glow plugs had gone. It also used to blow a huge belch of black smoke when it started. Once going it ran normally.

To test my glow plugs I just disconnected the wirre and checkd for continuity with a multi meter from the terminal to the engine block. If the connection is open the plug has blown. Mine glow plugs wern't much harder to change than a spark plug.


Hope this helps

Keeps stalling while driving. idling real crazy when I first start it.


I would suggest looking for a vacuum leak. Listed for a loud sucking sound with the engine idling. Or use some carburetor cleaner and spray around the engine with it running and listed for the idle RPM to change.

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area


Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

It sounds like the plugs are bad or not heating correctly. Running it out of petrol can mess them up like that sometimes.

Real loud knocking noise when starting


this can be a serious problem, sounds like one of your engine valves, has the car overheated recently? if your valves bent, you need to take the engine apart hope i helped

warm up the engine and turn it off then try to turn the crankshaft pulley with a suitable wrench. if its too hard to turn by hand then the bearings might be too tight.

sounds as if you may be looking in the wrong spot. If different gearing is drastically changing the symptoms you may want to check the trans. or torque converter. sudden pop with engine rpm increase and lack of power sounds like possible band breakage in transmission or impellor breakage in torque converter.
