Equally the injectors may be leaking whilst the engine is off which could cause some initial smoke on start up. Belched out black smoke, then a few times got a 'Special Programs Off' message before being consigned to limp mode. Also I do not use supermarket diesel, and I find that the occasional fill up of the expensive stuff gives the engine a treat. He says it drives fine, no lack of power, no unevenness or lumpy idle etc. I got a breakdown truck to get me home the take the car to their garage.
Still a bit smoke so blanked even tho egr few months old Car runs no smoke now. If its such low miles my gut feeling will say the injectors are not spraying correctly due to not having long runs to get them red hot and clean off. Had several Saab diesels with the same problem, not the same car i know but worth a look. I had exactly the same issues with the sooty smoke during acceleration when I bought my X-Type. Feb 04, 2011 I am assuming your transmission is a 5speed manual. However, I still see black smoke - not sure what do to? Clutch probably needs replaced but have a mechanic check it out first because it's a fairly expensive job. Feb 03, 2011 Sounds like the clutch is slipping.
I followed him yesterday, and boy is it not normal. . The car now drives like a dream, which is some relief, but under hard acceleration or acceleration in 5th gear on motor ways the car kicks out a very large cloud of black smoke. Cleaning them may be the best bet but i think that engine is a lot of fun to get the injectors out. This was a common problem with Jags up until 2004 reg. Either way you have to put a constant air pressure into the cylinder with both valves closed.
I'm sure it's sitting in 4th if its 5 speed or 5th if its 6 speed doing about 2500 revs for 20 mins once warm! It also put smoke out on any slight incline, without the throttle hard down. Fitted 2 new diesel injectors 4. Blue smoke is better indicator of oil passing the rings. It seems to run reasonably well other than that other than a slight reported loss of power but no fault codes stored. What is the tachometer reading when you experience this jerking in 5th gear? He's had the car about 4 years now, its done about 35k miles. Not a quick fix but it may well help over the next few weeks. If you're smelling fuel it could be an entirely different issue or a result of the coolant preventing proper burns of the fuel.
He floored it in 2nd and I couldn't see his car for black smoke, and then none of the oncoming traffic either. Once you have the cylinder under pressure, you will hear air hissing into the crankcase, but don't worry about it. Re fitted unit but still the same! In the morning start the car and dont rev it at all for about 30seconds and it will just flush the water and crud out. Its a 3 liter engine and a manual transmission. Another thing i do sometimes but on older diesels is park the car pointing downhill for the night and then squirt some fairy up the exhaust and then fill it with water untill it starts to trickle out.
Hi Dave, and welcome to the club. It's coolant getting into the cylinders. Replaced the 2hoses below egr to the intercooler. So put the pipe back on went out for a test drive and all sorted. Have you folks got any further thoughts or ideas? Posted on Jul 26, 2010 same car, same year,same problem. Hi every one New to this site! Posted on Feb 15, 2010 X-type 2004 2 litre diesel estate 84K miles - fine until last six months when black smoke appeared on accelerating - jaguar garage replaced air and fuel filter £156! Hoping its not injector related? At less than four quid it's got to be worth a try.
I got a phone call next day from the garage to say car was ready for collection. Please can some help, it will be really appreciated. I have a 2005 X-Type 2. I'm hoping its not gonna be too expensive, as my step mum will have him sleeping outside through the winter. Hopefully I've given you a start to your trouble shooting.
Now there is barely any sooty smoke, there is no loss of performance, and no engine management light on the dash either. He has no warning lights on of any sort now. A compression test which is easy to do with the tester would answer that. Should only cost a few quid. On a diesel, you'll either have to use the injector location, or a glow plug location. If you remove the cover for the top of the battery you can see where it fits on.
It sounds like the engine is being lugged. Kind regards Benedict White Jaguar X Type Sport Estate 2. Have smelt the smoke and its a mixture or water vapor and little gas. To be honest it only gets really short runs and he tries to drive economically and not rev it. I will post my results, assuming the engine does not blow up in which case I will be sitting in a corner crying. A compression tester hose works great for this. Jason answered 5 years ago The smoke is white? Many of our customers have reported vast improvements when they have changed the fuel they are using, most have reported that improvements have been seen withing 1 - 3 tank fills with a better quality fuel not mentioning any names but try to steer clear of supermarket fuels.
I am an X Vauxhall mechanic and have got a 55 plate X Type 2. One of them advised me that the black smoke on acceleration can be because of faulty injectors burring more fuel and not controlling the flow from the fuel pump. Hi Peter, Thank you for your reply. I'll give him the feedback over the phone so he can have a look himself first. I have looked through the posts and I have done mostly what they suggest, so further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
