Hi guys i plugged in a obd11 tester to see wot was wrong with the car. I get DTC codes P1646 ANDP1647. So i dont really get these bank 1and bank 2 so to simply put i changed the first o2" sensor the one at the front on the exhaust manifold right by the water pipe with the grey plug. Then i changed the one on the other exhaust manifold the one with the grey plug. The reason i say grey plugs is theres four sensors up front 2 with grey plugs and 2 with black plugs. Also i changed the spark plugs to the original spec. Im doing the back brakes tomorrow im hoping changing the sensors has done the trick. I will reset the DTC codes and see if it done the trick.

Black smoke problem. This has gradually got worse over the last year. Driving around town i don`t have the problem. Take it on the motorway driving at 2000rpm plus after 30/40 mins you can feel the car holding back. You then get a burst of black smoke out of the exhaust, then all is ok for another 30/40 mins. I have a injector cleaner in at the mo. Wynns professional. I have cleaned the E.G.R valve. Just a bit sooty/ tared up. After putting the diesel additive in i drove the car in 4th 3000rmp plus for 20 mins, no problem with the stutter and black smoke. Once i went into 5th, reducing the revs the smoke started again. It feels like possible exhaust fumes building up then clearing. Any idea`s. Ray

Since I had a new egr my car over revs when accelerating for a short while then settles, could it be because of the fitting of the egr?
Susan, take your car to an engine diagnostics expert and have him/her plug into the OBD and ask for the ECU to be 'told' that there is a new EGR fitted.. the ECU needs to be told this so that it can learn how to communicate properly with it and understand the signals the EGR is sending to the ECU.... while it is connected, have him/her do a diagnostic scan to see if there are any other fault codes coming up. It won't be as costly as going to Jag dealer. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi I let my Jag idle for an hour reving it up every now and then and there was still steam coming out of the exhaust. Is this normal? The temperature went up as normal and the fan kicked in as normal. The water level stayed constant so it wasn't using any water. Thanks Andy
Andy, part of the by product of combustion of carbon based fuel.... have a look when you are following some modern vehicles and they occasionally drop what seems to be a fair amount of water from the exhaust... burning fuel creates carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide water and a host of other gases. water vapour condenses at a lower temperature and reforms as water.. that's why some exhausts rust from inside out !

The jaguar started consuming more fuel than before, I've tried new spark plugs and wires, replaced a sensor, and it's continuing to get worse. There appears to have no fuel leak that I can see. What can it be?

Hi, When I start my car there is a dull sound and all the lights on the dash go off, you'd say typical starter motor problem but I've changed that twice, thought it was the battery and changed that also, after a few tries it'll start and once running will start all day but if I park up overnight then the problem comes back... Thanks

Hi, I had my jag standing for 3 years due to illness. I'm now able and had charged the battery with a good charger. I fitted the battery back in the car and nothing, no dash lights just nothing. The battery is a couple of years old and it still looks like new. Can anyone help? Cheers!
Hello my temperature setting is stuck on cold because my red selection button does not work. The blue button does work by the way Alber5 from United States of America
Kevin, have you tried another battery or using a booster pack or battery? Your old battery has not been used for three years at all and it is older than that.. and will have deteriorated and sulphated.. it is probably in need of a replacement.. and Alber5 from the US of A.. wow.. nice to know.

2002 X-Type Jaguar driving down the road I start hearing a beeping noise, then the dash went out but the radio still worked. When I parked the car and returned to the car it would not start. when I turn the key I get nothing. The only thing that has been changed is the radio and this is the second time driving the car.
