Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

Jaguar x-type power loss

I've got a 2004 (53 Reg) x-type 2.0d with 94k on the clock. At about 88k the engine managemt light came on, i also noticed a lack of power at around 2000rpm and black smoke. I had the fault codes read : maf malfunction. I replaced the maf and the light stayed off for a day and then came back on. I blanked off the egr and all the power returned. however the problem soon reappeared so i removed the plate and cleaned and refitted the egr. The light is now on full time, and the car hesitates and splutters between 1500-2000rpm. There doesn't seem to be any whistle (suggesting a leaking air hose). The car also tends to stall very easily, but restarts immediately. Fuel cons is about 44mpg. Any ideas??

    I have a 2003 model, with the same problem. It stalls, or sputters, when accellerating at about 25-35 mph. The check engine light comes on, stays on for a few days or so, then comes back on. If you have find out what's causing this, let me know.

My glow plug light flashes intermittently with engine loss of power or failure. \\please advise.

Common problem is the EGR valve. Best starting point is for you to have a scan done to get the stored fault code. Do you have the 2.0 or 2.2 engine?

The fuel heater light on my xtype started flashing and the ABS lights. After a few more short journeys the ignition engine warning light is now on and staying on . I've also noticed a loss of power and...

I had a very similar problem (did not have the abs light) but had the other lights. Changed fuel filter as the problem seemed to be a fuel pressure problem. Turbo was back and no flashing heater light, engine light will go out after about three cold to hot starts as long as no other problem exists. It's worth a try as it is a cheap and relatively easy repaire to do. If not the answer take to a garage who can interrogate the computer.

The button or the fob will not work with low or no battery power - you need to use the key. There is a keyhole on the boot under the trim or under by the reg. plate lights according to what facelift model you have.
