Not advisable since limp mode is designed to protect drive train and occupants and can actually shut down

Hi,
The problemcould be with the throttle module. Do check for the same. If you could let us know , what repairs were carried on the car, we could help better.

SOURCE: Jaguar xk8 1997 The throttle

My throttle body problem was diagnosed by the local Jaguar dealer (Barrett Jaguar in San Antonio, TX). They wanted $1200 to fix it. I had read on the internet that the throttle body should be cleaned out first because that could be the problem. When I asked them if they could clean it first to see if that is what is wront they told me that it would not do any good. It was an electronic problem and the whole thing needed replacing. I had my brother-in-law who is a mechanic clean it out for us and reinstall it. We have had no more problems. Can you believe I got a coupon in the mail yesterday from Barret Jaguar for a $143.50 throttle body cleaning special!!!!!! Liars all of them! Don't trust your dealer to tell you the truth! They just want as much money as they can **** out of you.

SOURCE: jaguar s-type restricted performance

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.

2009 Jaguar XF - misfires on the drives side bank, smokes uncontrollably when accelerating and restricted performance indicator/check engine light stays on.


And what codes do you get from the car's computer? That's what the "check engine" light is telling you to do.

Smoke is typically a bad sign. Blue smoke is an indication of oil getting into the combustion mix. White smoke is more likely coolant.

On a 2000 jaguar xk8...if the check engine is on is it safe to use?


have it checked out right away as it could be something that can cause expensive damage to the car. to say what it is without having the code checked and repaired could be a bad way to go.

The dealer repair shop for my 2000 Jaguar XK8 said I have a grounding problem causing my car not to charge properly. The conections on the battery checked ok and the braided ground cable checked ok to the...


Check to see if you have a ground cable from the battery to the engine block. Then using a volt meter check the voltage coming from the altenator to the battery. Voltage should be 14-15 volts. There again the engine needs a solid ground from the battery. With ground attached to engine and you tested it and found that the voltage was not as i described then the altenator is at fault. Be sure the radio and a/c is turned off during test. hope this will help you.

It just needs resetting.Hold each window switch down until you hear a click at the top and then go down all the way and hold until it clicks at the bottom of its travel.A low battery will cause this sometimes or a  battery change.Tony/Hills Motors, San Mateo, CA
