Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
I get a lot of black smoke from the exhaust and a large cloud comes out when i change up and put my foot down
This is almost certainly a split hose - mine was the large hose coming out of the bottom of the EGR valve.
Speaking to a parts guy at my local Jaguar dealer, he said that the new part is uprated as Jaguar are aware that this is a problem.
The split allows more air in and results in the ECU changing the mixture and over fuelling - Black smoke is an indication of un-burnt Diesel. As well as the black smoke you may also notice a whistle/whine or sucking noise when you accelerate and a lack of power / lumpiness at around 2000rpm.
Hope that helps!

Check the EGR vale, examine the hose from the intercooler to the manifold for splitting, the ERG (Exhaust Gas valve) collects unburnt fuel, cools it and via the intercooler, sends it back the fuel tank, if the ERG is not working it will blow the unburnt full through the exhaust, Splits in the hole draws air in and causes the same problem.

Try millers diesel additive, available from Halfords for around £12 for 500ml. I have a 2004 2.0d sport xtype. It was blowing out white or grey smoke when the turbo kicked in. I took it to a specialist who told me get the injectors ultrasonically cleaned. But try millers at 4 times the recommended dose. It worked wonders. There is no smoke at all any more. ( After a blast down the M4 ). Black smoke will mean probably a split hose somewhere. Try it. £12 is nothing..
