X Type diesel low temperature


Recommended Posts


I have just bought a 2003 diesel Sport and have a few issues i am sure someone can help me with

1 speedo only works occasionally and then slowly drops to 0mph everything else seems to work

2 The temp gauge only reaches about 1/4 even in good weather

3 Starter motor occasionally fails to engage but then works fine


Any advice would be awesome

car has done 83000

Hi Craig.


I am not advertising, but I had my s type 2.7 diesel Terracleaned over a month ago and it has made the world of a difference, both in performance and economy.  And my engine has only done 35,000 miles.


Look it up on Google before making your mind up.
