Hi lansyp, I used to have a 2002 x-type 2.0D. My car occasionally misbehaved in a similar way. I saw an episode of Wheeler Dealers (at least I think it was) and the mechanic Ed China couldn't sell it any better so I gave it a go. It made a big difference to fuel economy, reduced smoking, improved the torque and improved starting. I think it cost around £75-£80'ish at the time and I believe I got my money back on fuel savings that year. Sadly the car was written off parked up overnight in Shrewsbury when a drunk driver ran into it.

The clean helps alleviate the hot start problem but its a software upgrade that fixes it.

Don't know if you've already sorted this but if not there's a £10 voucher off a terra clean on O2 priority.

My review of Terraclean from 2013:

I don't think it will fix your hot start problem. You need a decent diagnostic to get to the bottom of it.

If you don't want to pay silly jag money try Ian Barclay 365 New Chester Road CH42 1LB.
