I had a 3.0L, 2002, manual transmission that did the same under very heavy acceleration or deceleration off a four lane. Amber light would come on, no power , missing etc... I turn it off , set for 30 seconds, start up and run fine..Only did this once in a blue moon. Mostly when warmed up and hot.. Jaguar never found it.. My hunch is that it is a leaking seal on the intake manifold some where, map sensor etc.. one of the electronic air and fuel mixture controlers ( this situation creaes a very strong vaccum that cauese the leak).. it's the computer reacting to the change in this that
"confuses" the engine til you turn it off , at which time the computer resets and adjust to the mixture.. I'd say when they change the spark plugs, removing the manifold to do this..that this condition will be fixed.. I'd bet money.. Good luck, I loved mine..now proud owner of a LR3 Rover..

My air was not blowing real cool and then it just went out all together. Can I just put coolant in or do you think something else could have happened?

Hi, this is most likely a litle late in response to your problem. The fix is in the drive shaft. They call it the prop shaft. It needs to be replaced. The vibration will go away once that is done.

I would recommend you register at jaguarforums.com. There is a wealth of information there as well as here. And for parts you can try Gaudin for parts. Just wait until you get the dreaded "cruise not available".

Good grief. It's now 2013, and you couldn't buy a 2002 X-type with 38K miles for under 17k.

I'm confused by your message. I did a quick search and I'm seeing all sorts of x-types for under 10K. Of course they don't have 38k miles, but the person you responded to bought it almost 8 years ago, so not many around. However, there's one for $8k that only has 56,000 miles - close comparison, and not near $17,000.

Mine did the same and it was the transmission was slipping. It kept jerking when it would be a gear change.

I am looking at a 2003 Jaquar X with 145,000 miles. It has a clean CarFax and was a one owner vehicle. Looks great but am not sure if this mileage is too high. They are asking $5,500. Haven't test driven it yet, just looked at it. Any suggestions or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
