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.

Ok, time for car school. The vehicle is operated by the computer, every electrical concept that is. When the engine is cold, it starts fine because the computer has placed it in "cold start mode", putting more fuel into the engine than normally would until Once the engine is warmed up, a temperature sending unit or temp sensor tells the computer to change to normal run mode. IF said temp sensor is faulty and is not telling the computer to make said change, it stays in cold start mode, still dumping excess fuel in the engine that is now not required, cause it's warmed up. Like keeping the choke closed on older vehicles. Now I think you can answer your own question, when this no start action is happening after warm up and it always starts fine when cold, what's the first thing you check ? Right, the unsuspected temp sensor. Change that and no more start problem. Have a wonderful day. Glad I could be of service.

Those model lifters are quite notorious for clogging up with hardened oil as they ran a bit hot... my suggestion would be to service all your lifters or replace them up to you and make sure all clearances are correct at tappets and valves :)
Good Luck :)

First, go around the car and tighten all the locking mechanisms.
A loose one will report 'door ajar'
This would explain 1 and 2.
3 sounds like the ride level sensor under the rear suspension.
Have you run over anything interesting lately?

Broken or loose gear mechanism between stick and gearbox.
Or broken gearbox change mechanism. Obviously the former is cheaper to repair...

which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

did you use the interface to cancel limp mode
you know its in limp mode

what was the printout of the diag

its aok to post i have a problem and this is the issues
but in limp mode you have no choice but too use software too fix the ecu etc to reset the mode fault etc

i think its the cold start system with air has an issue

if the glow plug light is flashing and the glow plugs are ok then its a sensor problem and a needed reset of the mcu to clear the error and retest...

from cold...!!

warm engine is prob aok
something air related

is this car a all wheel drive? ie . 2.5 or 3.0 petrol. if so they suffer from transfer gearbox problems the normal being all the oil has leaked out from the drive flange and the transfer box bearings have failed, or it could just be a wheel bearing noisy support the car on stands with all 4 wheels of the ground and get someone to run the car up to 40 mph then walk round the car and listen to each wheel in turn. if it is a auto the gearbox is also suspect. good luck
