Question about 2000 Jaguar XK
How do You remove the plastic clips to pull the hose from the air intake tube that goes to the valve cover. I want to remove the top of the air box to replace the air filter and at the same time get the plastic air intake cover out of the way to get to some coolant hoses that are leaking. I want to remove the section from the top of the air cleaner to the top of the throttle body. There are 2 bolts that connect this intake tube to the throttle body the air cleaner top is held on by metal clips that pop off but the hose to the valve cover has plastic clips surrounding the end of the hose. I don't want to break them off. Thanks for Your Time Johnny B 2000 Jag xkr

Thats the part load breather pipe. you should be able to remove it by squeezing the plastic clip together by hand but it may have hardened by age making it difficult and can break be carefull not to break the stub on the cam /valve cover if in doubt cut the pipe off carefully and fit a new one. by gentle twisting/squeezing they nomally come off

step 3Remove Solenoid I think its an EGR solenoid - regardless, its bolted on to the side of the valve cover. If you can unplug it - be my guest. I couldn't, so I used a socket and unbolted it.

To many to list. Could be something as simple as a loose gas cap.
Have someone check for trouble codes with a diagnostic computer.
Double check your manual. Is this a check engine light , or a service engine soon light. The former is a sign of trouble , the later is just a reminder to have your scheduled service done.
