Is difficult to ques since the computer cuts the throttle if running in limp mode etc. Try a vag com error read and see if some sensor is the cause, if not then problem with injection.

When i turn my xbox 360 on one light in the bottem right corner flash red and it reads E 74 error but when i unplug the xbox from the t.v it doesnt flash red, does this mean we need a new wire

one red light means the video card is dead not the cord and unfortunately cannot be fixed and to make it worse this error is not covered by warranty, if you want it under warranty tel microsoft wen you ring that it has 3 red flashing lights (RROD) not 1 as this error is covered by warranty

does the screen show anything ? lights, pictures, phone numbers, etc? the screen may be worn out, you can try taking it to your local carrier store and see if they can replace the screen.

2 red lights after x clamp replacement

It means basically that the xbox is starting tio overheat fast. what sometimes happens is those x-clamps have to be tightened in a sequence and tight as possible but not too tight to crack the board or cut the small PCB traces. Open up the console again and just have a look underneeh the motherboard make sure there are no torn green pcb traces ( put simply green lines that connect to a silver blob of solder ) and make sure the screws are tight enough.
