Having problems with your 2002 Jaguar X-Type ?

Had the EGR changed on my 2.2d X Type Jaguar and now the fuel economy according to the trip computer is 35/39 instead of 42/44 mpg. If I disconnect the battery will that cause the ECU to reset and establish new settings for the new EGR?

94 Jeep Grand Cherokee diagram panel flashes on the "miles to service" message, clock won't stay set. I suspect that at some point my husband disconnected the battery, and the system needs to be reset - but there aren't any instructions for this. Additionally, the security alarm clicks while the door is open, and car is off.Shuts off once you close the door. I don't use the key system, Jeep wanted over $75 to put in a new battery & reset, so I've long since lost it. There must be some series of

A P0401 code sets. I have done the egr valve three times on this car. I have cleaned the intake and the exhaust tube five times. The last time was only 1000 miles ago. The egr valves are new from the dealer. When the code sets it causes a rough running and hard starting. When I take the egr valve off it is stuck part way open. Any suggestions on what is causing this and how to repair it long term? I run a fleet and this has happened to other viraras as well. thanks.John.

My car alarm seems to go off about 6 or so hours after i have set it, usually at night or near the end of a shift at work, i thought maybe i left a light on or something and thats causing it to go off.. But i have checked everything... I've had the alarm sound before when i've left interior lights on, but that was after only a few minutes after being set.. I'm thinking my battery is draining and the alarm is being triggerd...i dunno, i'm a bit lost...Would a new battery fix this?

2008 Ford Edge. On board computer requires constant reset by disconnecting the Negative Terminal from the battery for a few minutes then reconnect. It then runs perfect until it requires another reset. Is there a permanent fix for this? When the computer requires a reset the symptoms are: Transmission doesn't operate correctly Engine runs sluggish etc... Once the onboard Computer is reset it runs perfectly. Does anyone know what the cause is and the cure?

Before I had my 1999 Mercury Cougar serviced, I had the odometer set on the ''distance to empty'' setting. After it was serviced, it was returned to me with it set on the ''miles traveled'' setting. I tried to reset it, but there is no response to any button I press. The time on the clock is wrong also, and I can't seem to change that as well. The battery was disconnected prior to servicing, but everything should have worked after it was reconnected. Any suggestions on what might be the problem?

94 chevy suburban with 5.7. New dist cap, rotor, plugs, wires, fuel filter, battery, and last year new ign coil, module, and ecm. I set the timing to 0 at tdc with timing advance unplugged and when I plug advance back in, it hardly will start and when it does it is very very rough to where it will not stay running.


Sounds like timing is a little late. try a SLIGHT advancement (1-2 degrees) of the timing. keep trying until idle smooths out, listen for pinging on a steep hill in top gear. if engine pings at all other than at full throttle, timing is too far advan ... 1994 Chevrolet S-10

My sons 1990 626 ran great. I change the oil and reconnected the speedometer cable that had vibrated loose. took it for a drive to make sure I didn't have any oil leaks. It ran for about 5 minutes and just died. Left it set for a couple of hours, it started right up and ran great for about 3 minutes and shut off like I turned the key off.

I have a 1996 Yukon. Sometimes when I go to start it, it seems like it has no juice from the battery. I will crank VERY slowly and sometimes click. However, it will eventually catch. Also, it tends to run as if it's not getting much fuel for a minute or so after this episode. When this happens, the current drain causes the clock to reset. It only does this occasionally and it doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason. This truck is new to me but the PO had the cable from the battery to fuse box

Fuel Pump I have a 1993 Nisssan PU 4cyl It has been setting for 3 almost 4 years not running. The truck was given to me to give to my son for his 16th b-day but when they put in a new battery it will only crank thye sprayed either into the carb and it will run only untill the either wears off could there be a lot of water in the tank from setting so long. or what might cause the fuel pump not to run. It ran just fine last time the truck was used.


Well dew, the worst thing for a car is to sit unused for a long time. After 3-4 years, the gas is bad, and you probably need to take the entire fuel system apart and clean it, or replace it. That would include from the carb/or injectors all the way ... 1993 Nissan Pickup
