Question about 2004 Jaguar S Type
Jaguar 2.7 diseal -s type. when i put my heater on i get a smell of burning in the cabin & smoke from the n/s of the engine compartment behind the headlights & a noise like something ticking or clicking
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.
Hope this helps
