Per Jaguar's codes:

P1576 Pedal Position Not Available

I'm assuming your car is a drive-by-wire setup (instead of having a throttle cable, it'd have a potentiometer at the pedal, and the more the pedal is pressed, the greater the voltage output at the pedal, which is translated to a throttle opening percentage underhood by the computer). It sounds as if you have a problem with the pedal, or with the computer's ability to read the throttle angle you're pushing for. Does the car currently drive OK? Or are you having driveability issues? Post up a little more info and we can take it from there.

Reading codes

Check the wiring to the throttle body, check the supply voltages as well. Check fuses too, it sounds like it received a voltage spike and then lost voltage and is now forcing limited rpm.

Code po455 reading on scan...mech. checked all hoses from engine to rear of vehicle all fine...i hate to spend $$$ on someone trying to find...gave my car complete tune up and light still on...HELP

PO 455 -- Evap System Gross Leak

That wasn't a mechanic you went to

All hoses or Evap Solenoids are not fine
& a tune -up is no more than spark plugs

That has nothing to do with diagnosing an evap issue

Need a professional scan tool & evap smoke machine
& a knowledgeable person to do the work

Those aren't codes. PH3600 is the part number for a Fram oil filter for your car, P215.60R16 is your tire size. TQ 10 is not a code either, it's a screwdriver size. When you get an oil change they do not scan for codes. Take the car to a shop that has a scan tool to scan your computer. The check engine light means there is something wrong with one of your cars sensors. Scanning the computer will tell you and your mechanic which one.

Hi; If I get the 'Trans Failsafe Prog" message twice within about 2 hours, The SES light will go on automatically. Since I do not seem to have any real transmission problems, this SES message clears itself in about 24 hours. The "Trans Failsafe Prog" messageseems to be used to indicate other transmission problems as well, like loss of transmission fluid, so be careful. I have a 2002 X5. Cheers. Omer
