Engine light flashing

My 2002 Jaguar x type has the engine light flasing. I took it to Autozone and had the error codes read it said cylinder 5 misfire and something that had to do with the airflow. I have since gotten a message saying cruise not available and gearbox fault what do I have to concentrate on to fix this Because there are so many things it makes me believe one problem fixed will solve most or all of these errors.

The most common problem for a misfire and a flashing check engine light is the ignition coi on plug.
Each spark plug has its own coil pack. With a coil pack failing it will also cause a airflow code as the car will start to run rich. With the vehicle misfiring it can also inhibit the Cruise control but it will not necessarily bring on a gearbox fault. The most common cause of the gearbox fault light coming on as you describe is usually a weak battery.
I would replace the coil pack and have the battery tested.
Thanks and good luck

    My Jag Mechanic said it was the head gasket as well. Didn't make sense; I've been messing with engines too long to buy into that one. - sort of like going to the doctor for a splinter removal and being told its really a cancer. Non sequiter.
    Anyway, replaced the # 2 coil and the plug for good measure myself and went happily on my way.
    I and my bank account thank you

Flashing Check Engine Light

Hi, flashing check engine light in car means a lot of things which can be related to any part of the car. So for you to detect what the exact problem is, you have to take the car to Auto zone for the car to be scanned after which a code will be retrieved and interpreted to detect what the problem is.
When my 2002 Jaguar x type had the engine light flasing. I took it to Autozone and had the error codes read it said cylinder 5 misfire and something that had to do with the airflow.
With that the problem was easy to fix...
Take care

What does it mean when my 2002 f150 service light

a Flashing CEL light usually means a mis fire, if the flashing s in groups ( ie of 5 ) it is indicating the cylinder number. If you have a straight series of flashes, it is a general misfire code ( P0300 ).

Go to an autozone and have the codes pulled, get the actual code number, not what the guy thinks should be replaced, and post a comment back to your problem.
