newbie jag owner

the ED man

Recommended Posts

Hi to you all,

now that I have retired I have treated myself to a JAG X type 2007 2ltr D with 90,000 on the clock in showroom condition and I love it .

it has the sat nav etc etc cream leather inside even the dog thinks she is lady muck when in it.

but as I have never had a jag before I have to ask , if I put my foot down in first gear the power goes off and I get a light on the dash ( I think its the glow plug one ) starts to flash, if I stop switch off then restart and pull away slower all is OK it only does this in first,

any thoughts ?,

Welcome to the Club, Edmund.

First, let me say that you have a very nice car  ---  nice colour too.

At a guess, I think the issue could well be a fuel one.  I have not driven a manual Jaguar for over 3 years, currently having a 2.7 Diesel S type - but as you car picks up better at a slower speed and is OK  when it gets going I would suggest a fuel system cleaning additive  ---  under a tenner  --  Diesel Magic, or Wynn's ---  that will probably assist.

Hi Edmund, 

The Terraclean is an engine and fuel system cleaning process, I had my car done by a mobile mechanic/technician [James Price  --  07949 137 629] with cost being £126.

It did make a difference to performance and fuel economy. He operated out of Aldridge/Walsall.  He was recommended as the closest by the Terraclean website.

I am located in Sutton Coldfield.
