This us ussually signs of a week Crank Positioning sensor. Get it replaced. If you have a trouble code 335 or 336, that is the discription. (some diag ports have a 1 in front going by 1335 or 1336.)

My jaguar (lpg gas) says limited performance


hi your issue is that your car which starts with petrol then switchies over to lpg for which youll already know ,but the problem lies within the cylindar heads as it can only be 1 of 3 things =1, your valve seals are worn excessively due to the lpg as that runs at a higher heat density which stretches the valves which in turn causes then to wear and that reduces the power ie lack off,as it puts the ecu into limp mode (safe to protect your engine) as its a common fault on ALL lpg conversions.as that is also the knock on effect with your master servo (brakes).as i fix approx 3/4 a month.
hope this help's to clarify what is wrong ok

I have a 2005 S-type 4.5 Jaguar and when it get cold it either won't start or difficulty in starting. What's the problem


Cold weather affects the amperage output on your battery. Chemical reactions increase with temperature and slow down with cold temps. The battery is a chemical reaction greatly affected. Some people have to replace the battery in severely cold weather. Well, at least now you know the cause. I recommend keeping a back up warm battery or purchase one of those aftermarket solar panels that hook on top of the door glass to keep your battery fresh. I think Performance Products carries it. Well, good luck.

2003 S-Type Jaguar


First step is to drive to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts carefully, without heavy acceleration. Tell them you have a check engine light and you need the computer scanned. They'll do it free (a dealer will charge an hour's labor even though it only takes a few minutes). Ask them to give you a printout of the codes, and post them here. Do that as a reply to my post and I can help you decipher the codes as to what they mean and what needs to be done. Was the car sitting in water deep enough to touch the bodywork, or were just the tires touching water?

Reduced power light came on


reduced power messge is not caused by oil pressure. i assume this a 3.0L v6. this engine has a electronic throttle body which is a electric motor that operates the throttle plate that takes the place of a throttle cable. in cold weather the pcv (positive crankcase venelation) system accumulates moisture that will form on the throttle plate, in cold weather the water freezes and causes throttle plate to stick. when the ecm detects any malfunction whithin the throttle control circuit it is put in to reduced power mode that limits throttle position. usually resets after ign. is cycled. there is a service bullitin to re-position pcv hose behind throttle plate to reduce moisture bulid-up on throttle plate. your saturn dealer can perform this service.
