Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

Power gone and heater light flashing (2.0D)

I have a 2004 JaguarX Type 2.0D. It has just over 68,000 miles done. On 3 occasions,the power almost went down to nothing,and the diesel heater-plug light started flashing. Pressing the accelarator pedal didn't make much difference. It went along slowly,as if it were just idling. The first and second times it happened,I switched off the engine. After 30 secs or so,I started up again,and the car ran perfectly. On the last occasion,the engine cut out. It's been about 3 months since it last happened. There was a space of between a month and 2 months,between each time it happened. Has anyone else had this problem?

Sounds like your EGR valve has failed,They usually become gunged up and stick open or shut which will give you a loss of power.The valve is not the easiest thing to change but also not the hardest,The dealer will have to clear the trouble code from your car though....hope this helps

In my Grand Marquis 1999 while i am driving suddenly o/d off light is flashing what is the problem, is that possible to be transmission oil ? thanks


Not the trans fluid

Oil only cools,lubes & applies pressure to
the clutch drums & bands

You change trans & power steering fluid
every 3 years or 30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

Changing trans fluid DOES NOT FIX ANYTHING

You have to have the OD light issue diagnosed

How often should i tuneup my 2004 nissan maxima


Same as on all your vehicles

The same as you have done all your life

Tune-ups went by the wayside 25 years ago

Spark plugs etc--every 3 years or 70,000 miles
Filter -every 3 years or 30,000 miles
Brake fluid every 2 years
Trans& Power Steering every 30,000 miles

Set up your own schedule from past experience

I assume you keep no log book, if have to ask

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving


A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

We think it could be the engine management system - would recommend going to a reputable garage for it to be reprogrammed.
