Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

2 Answers

Engine light comes on after about an hour, sometimes stays on

When the light comes on , some times, not all the time, the car will spit and spudder under accelleration like its going to stall, I replaced air/fuel mixture module about a month ago, and a week later again the same problem. If i shut the car off for a day or two, the light goes off, but eventually comes back on again, and under hard accelleration again spits and sputters. could it be another sensor like oxygen or temperature? I dont want the car quiting on me someplace and we all hate that damn engine light.

When the light comes on and then goes off , you will have to have it scaned again, it may have another code in computer, thats the down side to computered cars and trucks, they never seem to be what the scanner says it is, a seasoned michanic or tecnition knows how to read between the lines when it comes to this, thats why the back yard michanic can't work on thies cars anymore. Its to hard to explane the whole process but anyone that has worked on one will basicly tell you the same thing.

Difficult one this,what to advise ?? not using car and it stays off ,sounds like a dirty connection ,oxygen sensor would only make it read high on the gas machine and fail its mechanical inspection.the missing -well could be anything from coil to crank sensor but try putting a set of bosch plugs in the ones with the three electrodes thats for a vw golf or cordoba .the things work wonders and are far superior to junky champion.Also another trick that sometimes works is to disconnect battery and hold the leads together for 30 secs ,this should clear the faults and put the light out at least.Another thing to do is give it a good polish and treat the leather to some creamy stuff and polish the wood,now i know it takes hours but its a jag and its like an old woman,it likes to be pampered and talked rubbish to just like er indoors .Well it works with my jag and dont forget to polish the chrome especially the chome exhaust manifold cover

The dinging from the dash is the Air bag system check. Check that the bulb in the dash isn't burned out. The stalling and spitting could be clogged converter. Check how much exhaust is coming out of the tail pipe when you rev it. The smoke could just be from a leaking valve cover gasket.

good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.

This one has the old points and condenser system?
I have had condensers cause this same condition before but your comments of bad gas or carburetor needing work or replacement are very possible.
Is it a specific "timed" miss-fire or does it seem random.
Let me know.
