Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type

Open Question

My 2002 x type (manual) just shuts off sporadically, 5 times in one day, then it might run perfect for a month, today its back to shutting off on me, it will turn right back on, however then it starts raceing like I am in the wrong gear?? and if I move it to drive it sounds like something is dropping out of the car. Both lights are on, the ! and the engine when this happens. My mechanic cant figure it out as if I do tow it to him, it starts right up and works fine. Please SOS!

I have not got a jag yet, I am thinking about buying one I have owned bmws and audis. ALL CARS FROM europe have electircal probs. I dont know why, this prob sounds like a ground prob. I would check the controil mode on the firewall. Bmws always had a fuse there that would short out on the hood and cause the same prob. I just moved the fuse panel/controil down lower and never had the prob again. I know bmw are different but a car is a car.

SOURCE: 2005 Jaguar XJ8 won't start after going through the car wash.

Underneath the pollen filter housing under the bonnet the ECM (engine control module) is located,If any of the drains are blocked you could be getting water into the ECM....Just a thought...Hope this helps

SOURCE: Problem with 2005 Jaguar XJ8L

Hi Tracy.
Yes its a new one to me too !
I presume its an automatic model ?
Possibly the gear selection inhibitor switch is at fault, due to water ingress ?
Have you tried starting in neutral ?
Do you hear any clicking from the engine starter at all, when you turn the key ?
If you do, then suspect the starter motor at fault.
I see you posted this on Dec the 6th, so expect you have located the problem by now, if not hope I have been of some help.
Best Wishes !
John.

Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.

Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.

Definitely do not let them take anything apart, that is a ridiculous idea.
The error code should tell them almost exactly what is wrong.
However, again, this could be a similar problem a lot of cars with variable valve timing are getting which is a failing intake cam sensor. This DOES NOT require pulling the engine apart and is VERY EASY and CHEAP to replace. A $30 sensor does not require an engine teardown.

Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

MY 02 KIA SEDONA STARTS UP AND RUNS FINE FOR 20 MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF THEN AFTER ABOUT 10 MINUTES STARTS BACK UP THEN SHUTS BACK DOWN AFTER DRIVING FOR LITTLE WHILE AND KEEPS REPEATING THE SAME.WHAT...


Sounds like the same problem I have been having with my 2002
Sedona for the past 6 or 8 months. It would run OK for several days,
weeks, or months, then just quit. If I let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, it
would restart and run fine for at least the rest of that day. About 2
weeks ago, I was fortunate that it happened when someone was
with me, so I was able to determine that it was not getting any spark.
Since then the problem has gotten worse and more frequent - it was
happening almost every day and would take over 1/2 an hour before it
would start again. This morning was the last straw. I drove for about 4
miles and it quit. Took 1 hour and 10 minutes before it would restart.
Drove another 2 miles and did it again. This time it took 1 hour 35
minutes before restart. After 1 more mile, it quit again. Took 2 hours,
this time. Made it another mile and BAM! - did it again. My bro towed
me home. I determined that it is most likely NOT the crankshaft
position sensor, because 99% of the time they either work, or they
don't. Very rarely does it cause in intermittant problem. The most
likely suspect is the engine computer. That was always a likely
culpret when I worked on GM cars. Today I installed a $50 junk yard
engine control computer.
I am crossing my fingers!
I will know on Thursday, as I have a 50 mile trip to make.
I will post again on Thursday, to let you all know.

Just purchased a 2002 Nissan Sentra and 3-5 days later the car began shutting off when stopped on several occasions and starting back up. Lastly the car shut off while in park and would not start up again...


Next time it does it. try hitting the fuel tank. a couple times if necessary. if it starts back then your fuel pump is dieing. some times when the pump heats up they will stop working, only to come on latter. let me know

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003


I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.
