Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
Hi, The engine light on my x-type comes on intermittently. It stays on for a few days at a time and then it's fine. A few days later and it is on again! The car seems to function fine irrespective of whether or not the light is on.
I have extracted the Diagnostic Trouble Codes via the on-board display (by pressing the button on the indicator stalk whilt turning the ignition key) and have 2 codes:
Despite best efforts I am unable to determine what they mean. Can anyone help? Thank-you in advance.
I had a similar problem and discovered that the oil breather pipe which goes under the shroud had a large split.
This meant the engine was ok under little or no load, but coughed a lot under acceleration.
A temporary solution was to take the tube off and wrap it in cellophane. run it for a bit accelerating hard and eventually the ecu and maf sensor get their act together and the car runs smoothly again.
Engine light still on on the dash, but Im told this should go of after a few cycles of running.

I have had this problem on and off with my '02 X-type. I have taken it to a place where they will read and interpret the error codes for free. Every time it came back with a evap leak code. We had the dealer look the entire car over twice, but they could not find anything wrong. So we asked him if we should be worried. His response: "Nothing to worry about as long as the engine does not cut out or does into "limp home" mode." What it comes down to is that some of the sensors on this car are a little too sensitive. Even something as simple as hitting a bump can cause this code to pop up. There seem to be several possible solutions:
1: replace gas tank cap
2: replace air filter located behind the golve compartment
3: Open the hood. Remove the plastic cover from the engine block. There will be several hoses running between the engine block and the plastic over you just removed. Check those for leaks. (They get hot from being so close to the engine block and the rubber gets brittle).
4: Have the fuel nozzles cleaned/replaced
5: Clean out the air intake
Essentially I have not done any of this because my engine is running lean (meaning it is using less gas than it should). Seeing as though it is running fine, I can't see paying what the dealer wants per hour to look for something they have looked for twice already and didn't find.
I'd say try any of the above, but I cannot guarantee a solution. I'm sorry.
Thanks for using FixYa!
