Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

I recently bought a 2003 X Type. I really like the car and I am enjoying it, but I have my first concern. Yesterday the check engine light came on and I noticed the car was shuddering just a bit while idle and sometimes it feels like it is going to stall, but never does. I took it to Autozone and they were able to get this error code indicating some type of electrical problem. They advised a tune up would likely solve the problem. Does anyone have more specifics on what this problem could be and perhaps how much it will cost to fix? Thanks.

If you didn't do it go back and ask them what the error code(s) was, You can then look it up on once you do that you will have a better idea of what area of the car you are having a problem with, I do not think a 'tune-up' will be enough to cure the problem, it is more likely to be a Lambda sensor fault (due to the age of the car). If it is this it's no big deal details on how to change them are on the same site.

The other option (in the short term) is to put some engine cleaner though the car Cataclean or Redex etc but make sure you buy one suitable for the car.
Sometimes this is a quick fix if the sensors are dirty, but the problem will return if it is the lamda sensor.

There are other areas that will also do this so you really need the code(s) to find out where the problems are.

Hold the dealer accountable, for starters! It could be the thermostat, a coolant leak, a severe engine problem, who knows? You shouldn't have to concern yourself with diagnosing and fixing a car you bought yesterday, unless you bought it as-is.

Oil light stays on until car warmup. 3 miles drive time at speed of 35 mph

not good, but do not panic until you check actual engine oil pressure

that being said...take the concern seriously because the light turns on when oil pressure is less than 10psi

have you changed your oil recently?
did you use the correct type 5w20

have you checked actual oil level?
I have seen a lot of town cars that burn oil and you may actually just be low

Check oil level first
Check oil pressure second

if both check out then you have an oil pump problem or a more serious engine concern

keep me posted!
