THAT WOULD BE THE "PURGE CONTROL VALVE CIRCUIT". IT HAS TO DO WITH EMISSIONS. THE PURGE CONTROL VALVE ALLOWS VAPORS FROM THE FUEL TANK TO BE BURNED, BUT IN THIS CASE IT HAS MALFUNCTIONED. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME INFORMED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING. BEST OF LUCK.

    SORRY I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE PURGE VALVE BUT THERE IS A STICKER UNDER THE HOOD THAT WILL HAVE AN EMISSIONS DIAGRAM ON IT. THE PURGE VALVE SHOULD HAVE A GREEN CAP ON IT. HOPE YOU LOCATE IT WITH THIS INFO. LET ME KNOW.

Please can anyone tell me where to find the pass lock on a 2001 xjr v8 supercharged jag. It will crank. After having work done on it but will not stay cranked. Had new battery installed, also.


Doesn't have pass lock anti-theft system .What's missing spark or fuel ? May have some other form of anti - theft system . Your best bet take it to a specialty shop that does Jags

Inside my car i smell gas


Hi there:
If you smell fuel there is a possibility that your car has a faulty fuel pressure regulator. When this part fails fuel flows through the vacuum line into the intake manifold and the presence of this fuel gives you the smell. There are other possibilities, but this is the most likely.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

DIAGNOSTIC CODES


Here are the possible causes for the PO171 and PO174 codes:


  • Base engine mechanical problem affecting one or more cylinders
  • Check for air leaks after the MAF sensor
  • Check for air leaks in the Air Induction system (e.g., in the intake manifold)
  • Check for air leaks in the EGR system and in its related hoses and/or valve
  • Check for air leaks in the PCV system and in its related hoses and/or valve
  • Fuel control sensor is out of calibration (e.g., ECT, IAT or MAP)
  • Fuel delivery system supplying too little fuel during cruise or idle periods (e.g., faulty fuel pump or dirty, restricted fuel filter)
  • Fuel injector (one or more) dirty or pressure regulator has failed
  • HO2S has failed (it may be contaminated with fuel, silicone or water)
  • Vehicle driven low on fuel or until it ran completely out of fuel

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Nostart coil not fireing


Fuel Fail 24 is the code for the Ignition Amplifier Module. These are very difficult to find for older Jags because Jaguar does not make them anymore. I also do not know of any aftermarket companies that make them new. I do know you can get a remanufactured one from www.jagbits.com. It will cost you somewhere around $300 but without it, the car is junk. If you need any information on replacing it, let me know, and I will be glad to walk you through it.

My jag wont start


It could be an ignition related issue or fuel.
When it doesn't start does it crank, do you have the ignition lights?
The most common problem of intermittant no star probems is the crank sensor on the front of the engine, they can break down over a period of time and fail when warm. if not then I would fit a fuel pressure guage to the car and run it. Then see what the reading is when warm. If it is nothing (should be 38-40) then I would replace the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pumps typically don't fail intermittantly, they just fail!

How to remove fuel pump from tank s type jag 2002


Fuel pump is accessed through a hole below the back seat. Remove the seat and there is a rubber round cover over each fuel pump. Fuel pumps are held in place with a large round retaining ring that is screwed off.
