Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Engine failure mode light came on and engine light came on. Do I absolutely need a throttle body replaced? The car runs fine except I hear a small clunk noise when warming up. What about timing belt problem that could contribute to this, is it a possibility? 2001 Stype with 97,000 miles

The s type has a timing chain - not belt, so does not need to be replaced until showing signs of wear or becoming noisy. Why do you think you need a new throttle body? Has the fault code shown this to be the problem, get the car scanned correctly to see what faults are recorded. Engine mode faults can be caused by many things from oxygen sensors to speed sensor failures to corroded wires or plugs. hope this helps - good luck.

Car wont start


Check the intake elbow to be absolutely certain it doesn't have a rip or tear in it (them) where it connects to the throttle body, and on Mass Airflow Sensor. There can be no leaks there. Get a spray can of Mass Airflow Sensor cleaner and clean the MAF. Remove and inspect the ribbed elbow, checking for holes worn in it that could leak air. If the amount of air entering the throttle body differs from what is sensed by the MAF sensor, the mixture will be wrong and make the engine run poorly. If there is a leak before the MAF sensor it doesn't affect the running of the engine. If you haven't run Fuel Injection cleaner in the gas, try STP Super Concentrate (2 small bottles or one large). Also check vacuum lines are not cracked (if so replace them). Throttle body must have a good seal to the intake manifold.

The following diagnostic codes P2104, P2111, and P2112 the engine failure mode appears car wont move turn it off and on again and its fine with just the check engine light Happens several timesaday now


all the codes point to throttle body. clean throttle body, especially around throttle plate. check for loose wires, if problems persist. replace throttle body. p2104 is tac system forced idle, p2111 is tac system stuck open, p2112 is tac system stuck closed. clean throttle body good, and see if this fixes it. then go from there. have a good day !!

03 t'blazer, starter replaced, car runs ine but


You need to clean the throttle body, and possibly replace the Idle Air Control (IAC) motor. Use a baby bottle brush with nylon bristles and some carbureator cleaner to clean the throttle body and the back of the throttle blade. Take intake hose loose from engine have someone in car hold gas pedal to floor( engine not running) spray carb cleaner into throttle body and brush with bottle brush. When clean re attach the hose (engine will not start with hose un hooked) and start the engine. The engine might be hard to start the first time because of the extra fuel in the intake, but it wil start. You will need to run it a few minutes to clear the extra fuel, then try the ac and see if the idle is better.

Idles fine sounds good but when u have incline or give it alot of gas it goes into reduced power mode and throws up two lights and two codes p1515 and p1516. Once in reduced power mode u cant do anything...


These codes are related to the throttle body and the throttle position sensor. Check to make sure there is no binding at the throttle body. The problem could also be the stepper motor that drives the throttle plate.

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low


yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

Check Engine Light & Dashboard Reads Reduced Engine Power


The reduced engine power happens because there is a problem with the electronic throttle control . Some people call it drive by wire ! The gas pedal has sensors inside , position sensors , connected electrical to the PCM - engine computer , the throttle body on the engine has a DC electric motor an also has position sensors . These are also connected to the PCM electrical . The PCM reads the position sensors which indicate how much your pressing on the gas pedal . then hopefully it opens the throttle the same amout .

The throttle actuator control (TAC) system delivers improved throttle response and greater reliability and eliminates the need for mechanical cable. The TAC system performs the following functions:
• Accelerator pedal position sensing
• Throttle positioning to meet driver and engine demands
• Throttle position sensing
• Internal diagnostics
• Cruise control functions
• Manage TAC electrical power consumption
The TAC system includes the following components:
• The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors
• The throttle body assembly
• The engine control module (ECM)

Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
