16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

possibly the EGR valve is blocked.
one way to clear it. by taking it to a high way. drive in lower gear and more speed to clear EGR.
otherwise remove the egr valve and connecting pipe and clean the build up carbon.
jaguar x-type 2ltr diesel 2004 the glow plug warning light flashing, was told dirty fuel on fault code all fuel changed and filters. No problems for 20 miles untill engine was put under power on high revs went into limp mode, warning light glow plug falshing again? any ideas thanks.
the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.
Check up glow plugs (4 pieces) and glow plug relay placed inside left bottom area near clutch pedal. It is no.4 relay from left to right. Verify also all electrical cables. In most cases the glow plug relay is out of order.
i also have done a diagnostic test and it states a turbo overboost condition and it drives fine locally but loses power on the motorway and struggles to reach 80mph? any suggestions please email me at [email protected]
[email protected][email protected]#@$ PRNDS- Limp mode. one of 4 possible issues. Transmission control module ($1000) Valve Body ($1200) Clutch Discs ($1500) or the Housing/ variable disc unit - whole transmission ($3000).... get an extended warranty PLEASE! a good mechanic can pull the codes and tell you what work should be performed. These transmissions ****. Next time QUATTRO !
The car has entered into fail safe mode. It wil not allow the engine to rev high but allows you only to get to a mechanic or to get some oil into the engine. What's the level like? Is there any trace of leakeage?
