Had a similar problem last winter (Jan 09) with my 55 plate X Trail and the problem seemed to get worse the colder the weather became. Visited local X Trail dealership in Preston Lancs and they told me that as the weather gets colder diesel starts to thicken and that in all probability the fuel filter was starting to get blocked thus restricting the flow of diesel. According to the service schedules the fuel filter wasn't due for changing, but I have to concede that changing it sorted the problem.

Hope this helps.

Bernard.

Most likely water in fuel filter check How To section T30.
