    Had the same issue with my 2003 x-type 2.5 liter at 35000 miles and 6 mo. ownership. I won't bore you with all the details, or the revisits to the dealer. Result- Jaguar ended up replacing the transmission on their nickel. Same thing happened to another lady with a 2002 x-type. I now have 50000 miles on it and no hesitating.

SOURCE: engine cuts out and shudders at 3000 rpm won't

P0332 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low Input (Bank 2)

This sensor signals the engine-control computer when detonation is detected, momentarily retarding ignition timing until detonation ceases.

Most computer-controlled systems use knock sensors to ****** timing when the engine is experiencing pinging or knocking.

Obviously, a faulty knock sensor produces problems that appear to be ignition-system-related. If the knock sensor system does not provide an engine detonation signal to the PCM (powertrain control module), the engine detonates, especially on acceleration.

  • The first step in diagnosing the knock sensor and knock sensor module is to check all the wires and connections in the system for loose connections, corroded terminals, and damage.
  • With the ignition switch on, be sure that 12 volts are being supplied through the fuse to the knock sensor module.
  • A quick check of a knock sensor is to watch the ignition's timing while the engine is running and the engine block is tapped with a hammer.
    • The noise should cause a change in timing.
  • The knock sensor can also be checked by tapping near the sensor and watching for an AC pulse on a DMM or lab scope.

I had the same problem and found that the PCV breather hose was leaking, creating a vacuum leak. The codes for the error that I received have translated to "bank 1 too lean, and bank 2 too lean." Start with the PCV breather hose and see if that doesn't fix it. You will also have to reset the ECU afterwards to get rid of the error.

SOURCE: x-type jaguar automatic (gear box fault)

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

SOURCE: Hesitation in engine

There are more than just the two causes listed by Jigsaw_9077. I also have a similar problem with my '02 Jag. s-type 4.0L. Very rarely will airflow cause a "miss-fire like" hesitation unless there is a complete blockage of airflow (such as a broken valve or something of that sort) and will most likely ALWAYS have that hesitation, just just bellow 1500rpm. Richard_drin is partially correct. Fuel can cause this hesitation and commonly at lower RPM. If there is a fuel issue, a new fuel filter or a fuel rail/fuel injector flush should help or fix the problems unless there is an electrical problem with the fuel injector or the fuel pump is bad (a fuel pump problem is normally at higher RPM). The first step to finding the actual problem (because it can be one of many) is to change the fuel filter. If the hesitation is still the same, have a mechanic check for proper fuel pressure. This shows if your fuel pump is operating correctly and your fuel lines are not obstructed. If it is determined that there may be an ignition problem, like a check engine light with a miss-fire code like mine is doing, then find the cylinder with the miss-fire and and swap the coil pack with another one that appears to be working properly. (ex. miss-fire code on cyl. 5, switch the coil pack with the one from cyl. 1 and clear the code) If (or when) the check engine light comes on again, have it scanned for the miss-fire code again. If the miss-fire is from the same coil pack, replacing the coil pack should fix the problem, if there is a miss-fire from the same cylinder as before, then you know that it's some other ignition problem. Now you have narrowed your problem greatly, and haven't spent any money on a mechanic (or parts if do the work on your own car like myself). This is where I am at with my car right now, but I have not yet found the solution yet. When I find it, I will update to give you more info and save you from paying a mechanic for doing all of this research for you.

My 2003 S-Type is misfiring when it reaches 3000 rpms. it read codes p1111, p0333,p0332,p1316,p0305,p0303,p0301,p0300.

Think you have a problem with the computer but what i have no idea to be honest ,its going into limp mode as these vehicles have a limit to the RPM you can achive on static standing .These vehicles can only be revved to 3000 rpm when stationary as this i do know from when i take this type to the test station and the sound test states 3500rpm but only 3000 can be obtained ?good job iam well known at the test station .So i would suggest that consult the dealer with the view of doing a mapping of the computer to see what the problem could be.So firstly what i would try is to disconnect the battery in the boot and join the leads together and leave overnight to discharge the memory in the computer and see if this cures the fault .

Do you know the Purpose of a Map Sensor? I am getting charged $200 by auto shop. My Jaguar's "Check Engine" light is on. There is also a reading on my dash that says "Cruise Not...

Hi, the MAP sensor detects low vacuum in the intake manifold and essentially tells the computer you are stepping on the accelerator. The computer uses this data to increase the fuel/air ratio for acceleration. If your car is hesitation when you step on the pedal, this sensor may not be operating properly. For us to help you better, we would need to know the trouble codes the shop is reading on their scanner and also the symptoms you are experiencing.

Where is the transmission fluid check ? my 2002 jaguar xtype is hesitating when I begin to go speed up, ie from a stop light. Im trying to check the transmission fluid but cant find the dip stick for it.


Because of the similarity to other plugs and fasteners on the transmission, the potential for loosening an incorrect fastener, instead of the level plug, exists. There is a risk for internal transmission damage if the improper fastener is removed.

  • Removal of the reduction gear brake band bolt can cause total loss of drive or a substantial reduction in the performance of the transmission.
  • Removal of the parking pawl rod plate retaining bolt (located next to the XYZ switch) will result in problems/gear lever movement restrictions.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Connect the approved Jaguar diagnostic system.
  3. Make sure J-Gate shift selector is in the Park position (P).
  4. With the engine running and the foot brake applied, move the J-Gate shift selector through "P-R-N-D-4-3-2" and back to the "P" position to circulate the automatic transmission fluid until the temperature reaches 30 to 40°C (86 to 104°F) on the approved Jaguar diagnostic system.
  5. When the automatic transmission fluid temperature reaches 35°C (95°F) check that the selector lever is in the "P. position raise the vehicle.

Car is boging out in park and will not go over 3000 rpm in park and throttle all the way to floor. also i get the scent of burned oil coming from underhood. on a 2000 jaguar s type

If it only stops at 3000 rpm in park, it probably has a governor to prevent you from revving it over 3000 rpm with no load on it. That isn't very good for engines. As long as it goes over 3000 while driving, don't worry about it.
