X Type advise needed please.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

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,

 

Is there is leak from somewhere? Run the engine and try to see/smell the location.

 

Jaguar recommend that you should always have the A/C on Auto, so I guess there could be a connection.

 

Regards

 

Peter.

There seems to be a rubbing noise on start up , I think the smell could be from alternator or maybe starter motor. 

Is this a likely possibility ?

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?

 

Regards,

 

Peter
