X Type advise needed please.


Recommended Posts



I bought a 2004 X type 2.0D about 6 weeks ago , but this week the car seems a bit noisier on start up and there is a strange burning smell after a few minutes of driving, the smell seems to disappear as quickly as it appears after the engine is shut off.

Not sure if this could be related but also a loss of power when A/C is used.


Any suggestions please?

Hi Paul,


Thee are several possibilities, but not being an engineer I can't point you to the immediate one.


But if you open the bonnet and get someone else to start the engine you could get a clue.


The engine bay is quite insulated from the cabin and a visual inspection could help.


Are there any fault codes showing?
