Run fault codes for recorded faults that are giving you these problems. Do not disregard an engine light and continue as it is there to let you know that serious engine/ gear box is about to happen and that can be a costly mistake to make.

SOURCE: 2004 f150 transmission fault light

I have an '04 F150 and I had an OD problem that was the same as you are having now, I brought it to a deqaler they told me that I needed a new trans or a rebuilt trans, I disagreed with them becaus the truck shifted fine until the OD gears. I brought it to a transmission shop and they removed the valve body the found a broken clip that got wedged under the valve and would not allow it to open therefore rendering the OD useless and giving a flashing OD light. it cost me $403.00 to repair and have not had a problem with it since. I would call a ****** shop in the area I had my truck back the next day. hope this helps.

Strange engine shut down

i would also doubt bad fuel.
did the dealer scan the car to see if it set any codes?
this is a fly by wire car that means there is no throttle cable. if there were a glitch in the therottle sensor it would shut down the engine after the computer sensed the throttle not responding. but this should have set a code that would have stayed in the memory

The chain could jump a tooth or two, but normally a chain or gear breaks. You could pull the spark plugs and check compression to find out.
It sounds like one or two injectors may have failed allowing liquid gas to flow into the cylinders.

2001 Jaguar S-Type 3.0

I own an '01 S-Type and have had to many problems to list, however 3 months ago mine started riding rough, the check engine light actually started blinking and it shook pretty bad especially at stop lights (although it didn't shut off) I drove it straight to the shop and they said it was a bad ignition coil (coil #4) - $135 total and it ran fine. 2 months later coil #5 went. I was advised that if you take it to the dealer they will replace all 6 ignition coils at once charging you over $1,000. They are only about $60 a part stores. Good Luck I'm getting rid of my Jag this week! What a pain in the neck beauty!
