55 X Type 2.0D sport 61000 miles

Hi
Only had this car for about 4 weeks, so don't know alot about it's history other than what is stamped in the service book.
After collecting my car I drove 70 odd miles home with no problem, however, a few days later the glow plug light started flashing and the car dropped into limp mode. Stopped the car and resterted engine and car continued to drive perfectly, a couple of days later did it again, then has been OK for 2 weeks and has now done it twice in 2 days. I bought an ELM327 v2.0 OBD2 reader which came with ProScan software, but it isn't showing any DTC's. I can't spot any pattern as to when it happens, seems completely random. Do I need a better code reader or are there really no codes stored? Thinking of starting with checking and cleaning EGR & MAF and changing air filter, strange thing is it runs perfectly well otherwise, the only thing I would say is it sounds a bit rattly on cold tickover when cold, tried putting screwdriver on the auxillary belt tensioner, can feel vibration but not to the extent that I can hardly hold onto the screwdriver, although I think that I just don't have the experience to judge whether the tensioner/pulley need replacing. Just trying to get some tips from more experienced Jag owners, it's my first, love the car apart from this irritating problem.

Any advice appreciated
thanks
Kev

Addition to my previous post, now that I think about it, I suppose there is a pattern, so far it has only occured when I have been accelerating, not whist cruising along at a steady speed, nor whilst decelerating. Just checked car again for trouble codes using different piece of software, still reporting no stored DTC's

Thanks buckMR2, that's what I was thinking. Also does anyone know if 2005 X Type 2.0D sport has a DPF? and if so, could that be causing this to happen? i.e.perhaps not enough long runs.

Had exactly the same happen on my 2.2d, turned out to be the egr valve, changed under warranty and no problems in the last 3 years.

2005 does not have dpf hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies, no DPF, so one less thing to bother about. Got a day off work tomorrow, so going to have a go at removing and cleaning the EGR valve. Did a 90 mile trip yesterday, mainly motorway and no problem at all!!

The 2.0d does not have an electronic EGR, so very doubtful to be your issue. Suspect a turbo or fuel system fault. I'd put money on the turbo actuator. P132B if you can get the codes out of it.

OK, have booked car into local Jag specialist on Thursday for service and diagnostic work, will let you know if they find anything. The Turbo Actuator Repair thread looks interesting, and would certainly explain the intermittent nature of the fault, I have an AA 5 star warranty, doesn't cover everything, but I do have turbo cover included, unfortuantely it doesn't cover injectors though. So waiting till thursday now to see if they find any error codes with their equipment.

Quite right jagfix, the ecu had the code P132B, although everything working OK at moment, so keeping an eye on it for now. Would be interesting to have a look inside the actuator to see if those welded connections are breaking down as described in the link given by goudy. Any way got a list of other things to work thru first, the most urgent being corroded rear brake pipes, how did the dealer I bought it from get it thru an MOT only 1 month ago? beats me.

Could be the turbo, rather than the actuator. My turbo was bunged up, thus restricting the actuator, thus giving the code you have. Dealer changed actuator..... Same problem. Changed turbo..... Fine for a year.

If it had been out of warranty, I would have removed the turbo and sent it to Midland Turbos for refurbishing. I think it would have cost about £200 plus labour to re,ove and refit.

Thanks Richard. the mechanic suspected the same thing as you have described (dirty turbo), however they looked st the turbo and apparently it is clean, light hasn't re-occured yet, if it does I'll consider recon turbo. So did your turbo give you trouble again after only 1 year?
