Jaguar - X-type :: Sputters And Check Engine Light Flashes When Warming Up

Dec 17, 2013

I have a 2003 Jaguar X-type that gives me trouble when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. I have to warm it for at least 10 minutes. During that time it coughs and sputters and my check engine light flashes. Once the light stops flashing I am able to drive. What is going on?

Jaguar - S-type :: RPM Needle Went To Right?

What would cause my RPM needle to go all the way to the right (red zone) with no change in the engine. It most often happens the first few minutes of driving, but can happen at any time. The engine does not rev up at all. I have taken it in but they could find nothing that would cause this to happen.

Jaguar - X-type :: 2004 - A/C Gas Smell

I have a 2004 Jaguar X-Type 3.0 that I use as a daily driver. This morning, when I got in the car I immediately noticed a strong smell of gas. I've had an empty gas can in the trunk for a couple days so I wrote it off as being due to that and expected the smell to dissipate after a bit. I turned on the A/C and the smell only got worse. Obviously I've got a leak somewhere, the weird thing is that the engine bay doesnt smell at all and I'm not able to smell it when outside the car. I plan to take it in to get looked at (my poor wallet) but I'd like to have a good place to start.

Jaguar - X-type :: 2007 - Vibrations Begins At 55

I have just purchased this vehicle with only 19k miles. The problem, if there is one is as follows. At about 55 a vibration begins to occur and stays steady as speed increases. Had all of the tires replaced and thrust forced balanced. Yet still this vibration comes in. The car is perfectly smooth before 50. I drove another 07 of the exact same type and it appears that it had the same issue. Any further information that may alleviate this problem.

Honda - Accord :: 1991 - Odometer Stopped Working - S Light Flashes - Check Engine Light Sometimes?

I am a grad student hoping my car will hang in there till graduation next year. I have about 227,000 miles on my Honda Accord Wagon and recently the odometer stopped working, S light started flashing, and the check engine light came on. This only happens sometimes, and the check engine light does not always come on when the S light flashes and odometer stops working. I've continued driving the car to see what happens and so far, no problems have come up. I have driven another 1000 miles and am hoping I can just ignore the problem and continue driving the vehicle since I am not in a position to fix it or get a new car.

Recently I passed my California emissions test and she seems to be running smooth. Any thoughts or warnings as to why sometimes these signals happen?

I have to drive with GPS on all the time to know my speed, but other than that I feel OK.

Accent MC (2006-11) :: Check Engine Light Flashes Then Stays Solid

My wife was about to go into work today and when she started the Accent she said it started rough and revved up two or three times and the check engine light flashed 5 or 6 times. The light stayed on solid after that but there was no loss of power, smoke, low gas mileage or vibrating or any other symptoms after initial start up. I plan to take it to an auto parts store tomorrow (the car is at her work about 20 miles away) and get the code read. What I may be in for? I'm hoping its something simple. I told her to check the gas cap just in case.

Jaguar - X-type :: 2002 - Jerking Like Slipping Out Of Gear When Driving And Shift Up

My Jaguar X-Type has a 5-speed manual transmission, and when I am driving and shift up, sometimes it starts jerking pretty violently like it might be slipping out of gear, and I have to shift into another gear to get it to stop. It seems to be exacerbated if I am accelerating. I can always get it to stop by shifting, but am afraid at some point that it will not slip into another gear and I'll be stranded. I had a mechanic look at it but he has no idea what is causing the problem and I don't want to pay for multiple repairs that may or may not fix the problem! The car's got about 125,000 miles.

Accent MC (2006-11) :: Rough Idle - Check Engine Light Flashes And Then Stays On

I just bought this car from the original owner. She didn't take that great of care of the car. First oil change was done at 8,000 miles for example. Basically if it was broken she would fix it, but didn't do much preventative maintenance.

I just replaced all 4 spark plugs and coils since one was misfiring and didn't want to have to go back in and replace one in another few months. Replaced the AC belt a few days ago since it was cracked and worn. All other belts are fine. I drove the car around for a few hours the next day and it ran great.

Today, the check engine light flashes and then stays on. The car is idling rough at stop lights and acceleration is poor. Previously, the light came on and it was the EVAP system. Not sure which component and I was told it isn't supposed to affect the way the car drives.

Golf IV / Jetta IV :: 2002 GLS 2.0 - Misfire In Rain Only And Check Engine Light Flashes

My 2002 Jetta GLS 2.0 is misfiring only when it rains out. I go to start the car and the car idles extremely rough and seems like it wants to die. I checked out the codes for the check engine light and I got misfire codes p0304 and p0300. Which is a general misfire detected, and misfire on cylinder 4. I noticed that when I misted the alternator during the day around 70 degrees with the car running the car would misfire and almost die out. I know you are not supposed to get the alternator wet, but keep in mind i did not soak it I misted water on it. I misted the coil pack and nothing happened. I replaced the spark plugs and wires a few days ago. But as soon as it rains my car does not idle right and the check engine light flashes.
