Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
Take the Jag down and get a look at it and get it inspected. Cars tend to spring up on people like this. The light goes off, you check, you think it is fine. But later, it just so happens that it isn't.

Have exactly the same issue on 04 jag x type 2.5. So far have replaced fuel filter, air filter k&n, plugs ngk. Codes cleared, same issue. Seems to appear when air temp is cold and eng is warm.
Am replacing upstream O2 sensors and cleaning MAF next. Will keep you posted if it clears up. Did you ever find the cause?

SOURCE: Jaguar xk8 1997 The throttle
My throttle body problem was diagnosed by the local Jaguar dealer (Barrett Jaguar in San Antonio, TX). They wanted $1200 to fix it. I had read on the internet that the throttle body should be cleaned out first because that could be the problem. When I asked them if they could clean it first to see if that is what is wront they told me that it would not do any good. It was an electronic problem and the whole thing needed replacing. I had my brother-in-law who is a mechanic clean it out for us and reinstall it. We have had no more problems. Can you believe I got a coupon in the mail yesterday from Barret Jaguar for a $143.50 throttle body cleaning special!!!!!! Liars all of them! Don't trust your dealer to tell you the truth! They just want as much money as they can **** out of you.

Just a quick mention - for about a month my XK8 low coolant light came on intermittently. This week with no notice while driving normally I got Stability Control Fail and FailSafe Engine Mode and wtih great difficulty got the car back to where I started from (less than a mile). Two days later (when got time) and after a bit of research, I tried it again - same problem and a very unhappy engine. I then disconnected the battery for 15 minutes (probably more) to clear the engine codes as well as check all the wiring and vacuum stuff I could under the hood (at a Jaguar master mechanic's recommendation). No problems found but the car would start and immediately stall with the air intake hose disconnected from the intake butterfly. After I reconnected the air intake hose, she started and purred like normal. The problem is the BATTERY... It is low - I've known it for a LONG time BUT it always started right up and never skipped a beat. I intend to replace it tonight but fully expect that's the issue. I've had the car 6 years (it's a 98) and had NO problems except a dead taillight asembly.
Hope this is of value...
