UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 2 months ago

When was the last engine tune up .

In some cases we find water in the spark plug holes i suggest first you remove the covers and pull the coils.

check the coil boots for water dirt and possible engine oil due to bad plug seals.

Firing order is .

Drivers side. 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A .

Pass side . 1B, 2B, 3B, 4B .

If the engine is 2002 and later the firing order is /

Drivers side 1.3.5.7.

Pass Side . 2.4.6.8.

Both Firing orders for right hand drive Jag.

Sort out the misfire clear codes and recheck for malfunction codes as the P1638 and 42 could be due to the misfire codes .

When checking for codes after clearing just switch on the ignition Don't start and wait 5 seconds then check for codes if you just have the P1638 and P1642 then we have another problem .
