Question about 2005 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

Replaced turbo unit, EGR valve and injecters. Still getting terrible turbo lag in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears and lots of smoke. If the revs are kept above 1500 it runs finebut when it drops below this the turbo struggles to kick in and cars behind are engulfed in blackish smoke.....help please somebody, I'm at a total loss? This all started after getting the glow plug light of doom and car reverting to limp mode.

You need the dealer to hook up a scanner and do a full diagnostic during this loss of power problem. It is not something you can fix at home.

Check the transmission range sensor, if you already serviced the torque converter and the ECU is fine, you may need to replace the gear box.

Ensure gear box fluid is at level.

It sounds like the intake on your turbo is not opening up like it should. I recommend you to get it look at more closely or get it replaced.

Yes it's in Limp mode it will only run in 3rd gear.

As for the ABS, there is a wire sensor that attaches to the breaks,

If they don't attach that when the breaks are put back on or if they cut it because they don't know what it is your sensor light will be on.

SOURCE: gearbox fault light and cruise not available

The only thing that will cause a cruise control fault is a loose vacuum hose ussually on the breather hose coming from the valve cover in front to the throttle body. As for the remainder, shut off the car and restart to get you home and avoid the limp home mode. That in itself is an electronic fault in the ground system. Check you coils or replace them with a new set of plugs (autolite double platinum recommendes.) Clean any grounds you may have and then start you engine. You will notice there is no problem then. Run a diagnostic tool to see if there is any fault with grounded sensors like the O2 to keep that from happening again. Don't get the tranny replaced cause thats all the dealership wants to do and charge you $5k. Its not the actual cause. Good luck and let us know if there is anything else we can do here at fixya.

Hi Audi Experts, how can i solve P2195 and P2099 codes on my Audi Q7 3.0tdi?


code p 2195 refers to heated oxygen sensor(HO2S) 1 bank 1--signal stuck lean===causes --HO2S---fuel pressure --injectors---intake leak
also --HO2S 1 bank 1 implausible signal====causes ---wiring---short to positive ---short to ground ---HO2S--- ECM for that code I would be replacing the HO2S and checking the intercooler for a split to loose boost pressure
code p 2099 refers to post cat converter fuel trim bank 2 --too rich====causes ---cat converter
it also refers to engine coolant temp sensor (ECT)--circuit malfunction===causes wiring---ECT sensor

2006 Ford Explorer shifts hard between 2nd & 3rd gears, both up & down, but shifts normal between 1st & 2nd, and in & out of overdrive. All was normal then almost not working the next


It sounds as though your valve body may have a lot of particulates that have entered into it causing the valves to act sluggishly. Unfortunately, this is a condition that can only be taken care of by your mechanic and is not something that the average person can fix themselves.

My 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Automatic with 84K miles. It winds when I put it in reverse and I think I only have 1st and 2nd gear. Additionally it revs high, like over 3000 rpm, delays and then eventually...


It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

2003 tdi automatic, smokes black on every start


Unless you want to scorch the nozzles and risk burning a hole in a piston, do NOT use John Deere conditioner in a TDI. The injection pressures/nozzles are not tolerant of John Deere conditioner. smoke = bad.....high egts....and high egts = melting valves.  Smoke means soot, soot clogs the intake manifold and the vanes in the VNT, And soot from the EGR system. And once that soot is in there, it can harden to what you swear is something melded with your intake manifold's metal. Black smoke on a diesel is power you can see but not use, and the amount of over fueling required to produce it can have disastrous effects on the life expectancy of your engine. Melted or holed pistons, coked up injector tips, coked up rings, stuck vanes in the VNT turbo, all problems that can arise from a TDI that's constantly and consistently over fueled past the smoke limit. Leaving it in 2nd gear will have the turbo revving at a high rate and waring it out prematurely and can cause damage to the Vanes in the VNT for constant over boosting due to high revs. Good luck and i'ld look for a different mechanic who under stands Modern Diesel Racine Design Engines.

Turbo spooling too high


Sounds like the gate valve is stuck. This valve dumps excess pressure when the turbo makes it.
