Diagnostics

Hi X300 owners, In the October Issue of Car Mechanics there is quite a good look at the diagnostic system on the X300.

Well done on doing all that work Doug.

Re: New member, x308 possible engine seizure

Hi F-B, Should be good,I take it it's a 3.2 as well. Never had to change an engine in the X308 but the people I've spoke to in the past about it say it's a pretty straight forward procedure. If that was me I'd check everything else is the same as well. But I'm sure you've done that anyway. Tensioner...

Hi Dan and a warm welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have found the main issue that that sends these wonderful cars to the scrap yard and that is RUST :( .

Re: Restricted Performance

Hello Tattyhead. I would suspect a faulty coil pack on cylinder 3 which is causing the misfire. Once changed you'll probably find the other codes will disappear. After clearing the codes you should have the P1000 which changes to P1111 after the drive cycle is completed :D . Good luck. Let us know h...

Re: Restricted performance mode

Hi Jag190902, Now there's a question,some always go with Jaguar only parts while others refuse to pay the higher price and go with aftermarket.
