1999 Jaguar Vanden Plas Throttle Body

My Jag’s ck engine light is on and the car routinely goes into “traction control fail/stability control fail”. The throttle is essentially disengaged. How do you clean a Jaguar throttle body?

My 2000 Camry V6 had a CEL light come on and the TRAC OFF light came on also. The fix was an O2 sensor. Are your sure cleaning your throttle body will do any good?

If the CEL is on there are trouble codes stored in the computer. You’ll have to get someone to read the codes to see where the problem is. Many parts stores will scan the computer free.
