I had the same problem. Restricted performance and running rough at 3000 RPM. I have an OBDII code reader and found that the problem was in the air mass flow sensor, which is just after the air filter. I pulled this out and found it was dirty and had butterfly wings in it. The last shop where I had the oil changed replaced the filter for me but put in the wrong size. Close but no cigar. Bought some *** Flow Sensor cleaner at auto store and fixed the problem. Get an OBDII reader with the ability to erase the codes. Comes in real handy.

I had the restricted performance light code come on twice while on the freeway although the performance was not hindered. I took to the Jag dealer & after thorough exam, the Master Air Flow Sensor was replaced & under my extended warranty. Not an expensive part.

I would try pouring in a can of 'Seafoam' available at your auto parts store. It cleans the inside of the carbs/injectors.

You might have bad connection in wire harness, Wiggle the wires while reving the engine. Do this at night to see any sparks in the dark. Look for sparks around the Spark coil. You may need new coil.

Engine temperature coolant sensor


Your description indicates the engine/coolant thermostat is faulty and allowing at least some coolant to continue circulating so at higher road speeds the engine is over cooled.

My Jag s type is giving me a reading that says RESTRICTED PERFORMANCE and it bogs and sputters at 2.5 - 3 RPM. What the heck is going on?


Ignition coils can cause these problems, and a code scanner can tell you which one or more that are bad. If there are more than one that's bad its cheaper to buy a set.

2003 Jaguar S Type R 4.2L SC. Check engine light on with rough idle and computer statement stating that performance is restricted, engine will not exceed 2500 rpm? Any Hints?


Rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repairs. It may be as simple as bad spark plugs and wiring, or worse, fuel problems from the injectors back to the fuel tank. A worn O2 sensor can cause improper fuel/air problems.

Jaguar s-type restricted performance displayed


Its most likely the coils and spark plugs, sometimes caused by oil leaking from the valve cover gasket. The coils deteriorate over time from engine heat and need to be replaced at 90-100k
Local garages don't have the Jaguar diagnostics terminal and are unable to do more than find basic error codes with a reader. Its important to get this fixed because it's causing damage to your caltalytic converters. They are expensive.
