Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
I had this problem on my 2.0 D. I had changed the EGR valve but it still smoked badly especially on acceleration.
I discovered, upon removing the EGR valve again and inspecting the large hose that comes out of the bottom, that there was a large split in it.
I used some 'Hose Bandage' to test the pipe. It stopped the problem immediately. You will need to replace the pipe properly as the bandage wont hold for long due to temp and pressure I guess.
I had searched many sites for EGR problems and they all suggest changing the EGR, however if you search for split pipe and black smoke you get many hits for that too - especially Ford and Jags.
