my x type 2 ltr d 2002 se v when started lurche in 2nd and 3rd limp added arch oil hope to clean jets still same no turbo serviced with local garage 2 months ago what can i do
Hello and Welcome.
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise..
Im afraid I need you to clarify exactly what you mean when you say "... limp added arch oil".... ??
Plus - what do you mean when you say.. " arch oil ar6400 d addative..."...??
Too - are you saying the turbo is not working ? If so - has that been tested / do you know for sure its not working? A non working turbo will not cause surging...

Hi. The car does not perform as it should as it doesnt accelerate well even with foot on floor. It does hesitate on acceleration and then it does a skippy just as a learner driver! I dont have any confidence that in an emergency it will get me out of trouble. It does low mileage - 2500 a year. Im sure this doesnt help but i feel something else is faulty. There are no management lights on in the dash.Any ideas?

Hello again Bernie -
Thank you for your reply -
I need to just ask then in view of that - in a bid to cure this..
What exactly has been checked on the engine - ?
Any parts replaced at all?
What exactly was the additive you used - was it for the fuel / engine?
Have the filters been replaced at all?
Has the fuel pressure been tested?
Last - please give me its FULL reg number so that I can ID exactly the car you have and its systems..

Hi. Last service did filters etc. The intercooler hose was replaced as it was split and chucking 'oil/fluid' into the engine bay, was a jag part and done 2 months ago. Not sure about pressure testing on fuel. The Arch additive was for fuel. BJ06JJU is reg 2.0l diesel. I anticipated a need to get a computer linked to it. Thanks

Hello again -
Thank you for that info.
You might need to get it on test equipment yes - but not fault code general garages do. There wont be fault codes if there is not EML - engine light / fault message on the dash.. but what may become necessary is to have fuel pressure test equipment on it.. it does sound like you have a fuel supply issue here -causing the running issues you describe..and without test / pressure test equipment, you have no way of knowing if thats the cause.
What you need to do before that is to check carefully for any rips / tears / spits in any of the inlet air side of the engine - un metered air into the engine will cause these symptoms - so check all for that. Check all hoses / pipes are tight etc too.
If the fuel filter has not been changed in the last 12 months - given the fault you have - replace that. Its worse as you say doing low mileage - sediment settling and clogging will severely restrict the fuel flow.
Check the air filter too - and the tubing for restrictions..
If its still not running right after doing the above another thing you can do / try is - disconnect the Air Flow meter - the wire connector to it.. and re try a drive. If power is restored - then you have a faulty air flow meter and that then needs replacing. ( You could try this first before the above )
If you Still have troubles - there is a known issue that Jaguar have issued a TSB on - that is hesitation at or around 1900 rpm.. If you feel its like that - you need to speak to a local dealer- there is a software update that they need to perform on the car to cure that...
Other than as above- you are then needing to check the fuel pressure as mentioned - and also back pressure tests for restrictions in the exhaust system.
Working through as above should see this sorted for you Bernie.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
