    Hi all. I have a 2009 x type 2.2 diesel. The battery warning light every now and again will flash then I can go a few weeks without it coming on at all.

  14. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hello, This is the second time when the engine from my 2004 2.0D X-Type shuts off while normal driving. When trying to turn the engine on, the glow plug light was flashing and the engine would not start. Waited two minutes and then it started. I know for sure that the alternator is making...
  15. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi all, I replaced my alternator over the weekend and have a good tip. In the Haynes manual and some posts I have seen that it is recommended to remove the ball joint under the alternator to take it out and put the new one in but the bottom bolts make this very difficult. The best way is to...

    Guys, I could really use some help. I have a 2006 2.0d x-type. A few days ago when I went to start my car in the morning, the car started but as soon as I turned the key it sounded like the starter was struggling to turn over the engine. This same "stuck starter" symptom repeated itself a few...

    My old engine had been abused for so many years that it was no longer salvageable. I purchased a new/used engine from a gentleman outside Pittsburgh, Pa. While the engine is out I decided to make some changes. First, I made a new pointer for the timing marks. Along with being under the 5.3 V-12...

  20. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Morning I'll keep this separate from my existing alternator post as it's not entirely related. EBay has a alternator and the part number matches mine but it advises to check if my current unit uses 'smart charging on fords' . Can anybody tell me what this means and how I know. I have a 04 2.0...
