Hi guys/gals

Just bought myself a 2005 X-Type Estate Sport 2.0 Diesel. Came from a long line of Japanese and german cars but needed something with a bit more room as i will be starting a family soon.

Car seems to be relatively hi spec with the carbon dash and sat nav with black leather, lovely big thing. 

Notice though the glow plug light flashing with reduced power but no engine management light on, thankfully i bought the car from a garage who is going to fix for me i hope

 

Thanks

Steven

Welcome to the club,  Steven.

My younger son, also Stephen, has an X Type Sport 2.0D.  Yours has a few optional extras more than his car.

I think you will enjoy your Jaguar experience and I hope you will enjoy the club.

Regards,

Peter.

haha Joe, i never noticed that lol

i certainly did not pay that!

Also noticed that near the front left of the engine bay, infront of the engine, behind the radiator there seems to be a blue aftermarket silicon hose? any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi Steven,

My son just had this issue.  This hose is a replacement for one of the ones/pipes the seem to run from the exhaust manifold to the turbocharger.  The original must have failed, as did my son's, with a significant loss of power.  My mechanic repaired his hose/pipe and the car is now running quietly with bags of power.

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Steven I hope you didn't mind but I ran a MOT check on your new purchase and it showed its 

Never failed a MOT and as never had a advisory---Great car history . And she looks good " enjoy"

HI

The silicone hose, will just be a replacement, silicone hoses are better last longer, handle more heat and much great pressures

sometimes if there just standard elbows or straight, siicone hoses are available and make a much better replacement

cheers
