Well I checked to see why my service light was on and wow there were alot of codes that poped up but now I have to figure out where to start any advice or if you have had any of theses problem chime in and tell me your experience you had and symtoms you were having when your problem started!!
code PO138 =Heated o2 sensor bank sensor
powertrain control module uses sensor to calculate the air/fuel ratio in exhaust
Cause= o2 sensor defective
fuel system running very rich or less lean
engine miss fire condition -repair
fuel pressure very high or low fuel pump or pressure regulator
code P1294= Target Idle not reached
ECM dectected idle speed not within specified range
Cause= mechanical condition on Vacuum leak
Throttle Cable not free
Idle speed screw misadjusted
Always start diagnostics/repairs with the lowest numbered Check Engine Light (CEL) trouble code. Often whatever is faulty and causing the lowest number code, is also causing bad data or some other engine issues that make the higher number codes illuminate the CEL.
A P0138 can cause all sorts of issues, including a very rich mixture, cat converter troubles, and bucking, stalling, or backfiring of the engine.
Fix the P0138, erase the codes, and see if any other codes come back.

You didn't state what year your XJ is, but going by your handle I would think you have a 2000. If so, check the Oxygen Sensors relay 20 Amp mini fuse in the Power Distribution Center. It's identified in this photo as O2S Relays. This may address the P0138.

Now I think I found some major issues thismorning that is causing all theses codes as well or I should say it wasnt help the codes at all!! I looked at manifold thismorning and there are 2 bolts missing out of it! that would create a vacuum leak and im asumming exhaust leak!! Could anyone inform me on the size and where to source then I callled autozone they said they couldnt get them and I went to ace hardware and they have none as well any advice it would help me out alot thanks in advance!!
Next there is oil laying on the top around valve cover so im asumming that it might need a valve cover gasket and I got checkin the bolts and they were only hand tightened!! I tightedthem up and it seems to be actually running smoother than it was!!
