    when I first start the car engine seems to run normal. After about a minute or so, engine fault and cruise not available light flashes. Rpm's will not go above 2500 and max speed is 15 to 20 mph. the model is a 2002 Jaguar X-type.

    Do you mean that your Jag loses performance when the check engine light is on?

I had the same problem and found that the PCV breather hose was leaking, creating a vacuum leak. The codes for the error have translated to "bank 1 too lean, and bank 2 too lean." Check your PCV breather hose (it is located just above the intake air filter box) and see if that looks like it is leaking (you might hear air escaping too). You will also have to reset the computer afterwards to get rid of the error. The computer can be reset like the first solution explained, or take it to an auto parts store and have them use the code reader device to reset it.

Hi

First line of attack, is to reset the on board computer, which are notorious for giving problems, especially if you have run down the charge on your battery.

Disconnect both battery terminals, switch on the ignition to start 5-6 times, to erase the computers memory, and then reconnect the battery, with the positive terminal first.

Then give her an extended road test, to see if a problem returns.

Good Luck !

If you think I have been of help, give me a FixYa rating please.

John.

What causes cruise control to work when truck cool but will not once the truck warms up?


suggest checking cable on accelerator throttle arm in engine bay where it connects from cruise control to accelerator throttle arm on engine. Thinking if it is loose it may get looser when hot.
Check connectors on electronics in engine bay on cruise control.
Check sensor for speed. Is it ignition maybe a scotch lock connector that expands with heat and cruise control looses sensor for igition pulses. How does it sense speed ?
Is it magnets on the drive shaft maybe the Hall efect transducer is close to exhaust pipe under car and is being affected by heat.
Is it front wheel drive ? check for a pulse sender on speedo cable in engine bay maybe this is getting cold.

Check cruise control cable is oiled adequately in cable sleeve .

check vacuum connector is ok in engine bay also ?

98 crown vic charge light goes on and needle goes to full charge when excelerating?


Sounds like the voltage regulator has failed.
Check voltage at the battery with the engine at idle and again with the engine at cruise speed. Voltage should be around 13 volts at idle and 14.5 volts at cruise speed.

I want to know how to use my cruise control in my 1994 Toyota pickup. It has all the buttons and the capability but the words are scratched off and i don't have a manual.


Generally... There is ON/OFF - SET - ACCELERATE/RESUME, COAST/DECELERATE. Cruise is available at speeds above 35mph or so. Sometimes there is no main on/off. Cruise on a turn signal stem has a button that pushes in on the end, push when at desired speed. resume/accelerate slides to right, is spring loaded and return left when released. the same lever when slid left is coast/decelerate. Momentarily sliding accelerate and releasing increases crusing speed by a couple mph. If brakes are used cruise disengages, sliding resume returns you to cruise speed after braking. Coast/decelerate disengages cruise, when at desired lower speed hit set. On some, hitting set not needed, when coast is released speed is maintained. Variations may be up/ down instead or may be steering wheel face mounted. Please rate answer. Duct tape is like the force, it has a dark side.. a light side.. and holds the universe together!

Loosing power at cruising speed


have you had the transmission flushed? it seems to be caught in a limbo. where the calibration of the speedo and the transmission are not compatable. Now as wierd as that seems it happens usally like when going up a hill if you have a manual trans. and cruise locked in. it cant hold that speed and moves to a different speed if you dont down shift. Or perhaps your cruise control cable is slipping. is it vacume over mechanical? pop the hood and make sure all your hoses to cruise control are tight and no leaks.

replace the 2 large rubber o-rings in the intake manifold - passenger side - behind the 2 large plastic valves with electrical connectors. probably 3 or 4" in diameter.
