Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
I would start by checking the EGR valve for heavy deposits. The EGR valve is responsible for introducing already burned exhaust gases back into the engine with unburned air from the turbo charger/atmosphere. Because burned exhaust gases have already been burned they can not be burned a second time and are inert. By reintroducing these gases and displacing the clean air entering the engine this lowers the combustion temperatures and improves emissions. Because of the nature of the job it does it gets carbon-ed up very quickly and starts to stick resulting in the symptoms you have described. It is situated under the engine cover just to the left of the dip stick. not to difficult to clean inside but must be removed. A good fuel system cleaner would also be beneficial. Hope this helps
