Air suspension fault light came
if your in doubt about the functionality of the suspension system a quick way to check and see if the static pressure system is working properly is totake a floor jack and raise up the opposing side that you have questions..The system stores 228ps in the retantion tank located under the spare tire.As you force the air to one side the recycle valve will release the air to lower the cars' body.You wil hear it come out,then lower the jack,then the air from the tank will refill the lost air....Turn on the car to initiate the air pump to refill the rear tank,you should feel the car raise up in the front evenly.Last but not least my suggestion is if you think another shock is leaking you can 1st check the caping on the shocks...at times they will leak slowly on the caping...it will start as a weeping leak and you cant hear it....you can get some soapy water and lightly spray it around the enter deck mounts location under the hood where the air lines feed into the shocks...if you see air bubbles,then you can easily pack a towel in the leakage until you find a used shock or rebuilt one off ebay....But you fault light wont display a mil.The fault light only comes on when pressure is lost from the shock,or a static line has failed...causing one shock to lower to be lower..The CAN will trigure a fault code as the sensor detects body uneveness..Usually when this happens you will see a fault code,but I doubt this is your issue.

Oil pooling around spark plugs
You will need a rocker cover gasket set which comes with the main rubber seal and 6 sparkplug seals. they tend to harden over time and leak. You need to ensure that the cover is tightened down evenly to get a good seal.

What does lighting strike mean
lightning strike indicates an electrical fault. You should get an error message on the monitor (ODM) which will probably say 'fuse 1'. A common fault that causes this is water on the passenger fuse block which is on the left of the footwell, behind a cover. It is quite common to have to re-solder some of connections (there is a great video on YouTube on how to do it) If the lightning symbol comes up when you turn a corner then it is probably is water contamination.

Jaguar XK8 Trip computer
Friend, your situation could be taking place on ANY vehicle, not just the Jag. Anytime this type of thing happens, no matter what it happens to be, ALWAYS go directly to the ground. Check ALL your ground connections on every ground wire you can find, and the ones you can't find, under the dash that are held to the firewall and any metal braces by a simple little screw that could be loose. I find this stuff is a LOT like connecting a trailer to a vehicle for the lights. Sure it's wired properly, you know what your doing!!! Then you check and tighten the ground wires between the vehicle and trailer and it now works. ALWAYS go directly to the ground connections. That's normal procedure. If it still doesn't work, get out the test light and start checking for power. But then your not doing trailer lighting. Get yourself a wiring diagram and check it closely.
