Jaguar x type 2.0 ltr D. - Engine cuts out when driving / turning right - bpmservices

Hello.

I do hope some can help in resolving the intermittent cutting out of the engine that started at the end of August this year. I appoligies for the long story but hope all the details will help to resolve the problem.

I have a Jaguar 2.0 ltr diesel, 06 with 93k 0n the clock. I purchased the car at the end of july this year. The car was driving fine mostly local journeys. Then i was driving the dorset at the end of August for our holiday. We had driven about 50 miles along the motorway when the car lost power but was still running. I came off at the next junction and stop the car in a car park. The glow plug light was on. Not knowing what the problem was i turned the engine of and proceeded to restart the engine. The engine started but when pressing the accelorator it wouldnt go over 2000rpm. I turned the engine of again and the glow plug stayed on. I tried again and all then seemed ok. I drove a total of 750 miles to our holiday and back with no further problems. The car had its MOT in september and all seemed fine until one day the engine just stopped whilst driving along. all the lights on the dash showed up just like they do before you turn the engine over. I restarted the car and all seemed fine. this continued to happen intermittently over the next week or so mostly when turning right at a junction and roundabouts in travelling mode. If you were turning right from a stand still position it would not cut out. I took the car to the garage. They tried a few different thing but ended up refering me to a fuel injection specialist who changed some pipes at the cost of £180. They reported no error codes when tested on the computer. I drove the car home and seemed ok. The next day it happened again and intermittently over the next week. I couldnt get it back the garage due to work comittments. I popped into another garage local to me to get a second opinion and told them of the work that had been done on it. They flagged up that the other garage did not have a good reputation. I booked the car in on Tuesday this week. So far the mechanic has not found the problem. I have trawlled other forums for similar issues and have made a list of potential solutions from the forums to try and help the mechanic as it seems this is an ever increasing problem with this diesel engine. I will update what the mechanic has done as he said it is a process of elimination. If any can help or knows why this can happen then i would be eternally greatfull.

PS.

I have also noticed that when starting the car on these cold mornings that it would cut out whilst ticking over and when i pulled out of my driveway to the traffic lights on my road which is uphill it would cut out and would be hard to start again as it was facing uphill although eventually it would start after 5 mins of trying to start.

Its all very annoying and is potentually very expensive to repair.

Many thanks

The ammount of electrickery often makes modern cars difficult to faul tfind on, normally a fault code will be stored but if this is not happening I would suspect that somewhere you have a faulty connection which is being aggravated by the inertia of turning right. The only possible way I can think of finding it is to try and move the wiring looms/connectors to the left of the car with the engine running in the hope that you can disturb something.

Firstly these suffer with sticking EGR valves that can cause rough running at low RPM.

2nd well known problem on the 2.0D is the wires break internally inside the plug for the airflow meter, turning right exagerating the problem. You wont find a broken wire as the strands break inside. Well documented fault with anyone with jaguar knowledge.

3rd The injectors do loose their coding at around 70,000 miles and need re-coding. One way of detecting this is when very cold start up and hold RPM at 1100 rpm, it may start missfiring or running a touch lumpy, can sometimes be felt at 1750 rpm at 2250 rpm but needs holding 100% steady at the RPM when stationary and you may feel a very slight missfire.

I would suggest a good injection specialist who knows what he's doing will fix it. Wiring to the pressure rail sensor needs to be sound as well

good luck. airflow meter wiring or injectors is where my money is on your discription

Thanks for the quick replies.

I will be seeing the mechanic in the morning and will pass on your suggestions. I will also update what the mechanic has done. Thanks again for all your help.

Thsi engine also suffers from wiring looms chafing on pulleys. Remove the engine cover and see if any of the injector woring loom is close to the top pulleys.

Hello

I got the car back from the Chorley Street garage, Bolton ths morning. The garage tested the wiring as that is what they specialize in. All the sensors related to this type of fault have been checked plus the wiring looms. They may think it is the fuel pump in the enging that is the problem but are not 100% certain. No codes shown on there system either.

I rang around for a Jag specialist and spoke to a very helpful guy (Greham) at Halfway garage in bury, although he could not look at it as he was moving premises. He has though refered me to another diesel mechanic called mark who has been driving Jags for sometime. I took it in yesterday and he seems to know what hes talking about. So fingers crossed that i will have some good news today. I will of course let you all know the outcome.

I have passed on all you toughts as to what it maybe to try and help resolve. The guy above also has the very latest Jag Diagnostics software which may help.

Many thanks

Hi so what was the out come in the end I am having exactly the same problem with my car

Its normally the wiring to the air flow meter, but the break only occurs when the engine moves in the engine bay caused by turning right so when all the normal tests are carried out no fault will be found and often becuase the fault is so intermitant and quick it doesnt flag a fault in the ecu.
