Question about 1993 Jaguar XJ6
I have a 1992 XJS 5.3 V12
The engine is very hard to start and will not idle above 800 at cold start. It will cutoff after a few minutes. The exhause on right side is cold telling me the cylinders on right not firing. The fault code showed the oxygen sensor on the right bank faulty. So far I have replaced that sensor and fuel filter. FuelPump is working but I have not verified pressure yet.I have disconnected the battery to reset fault. When I turn over starter I do get some dark smoke from right exhaust.
Replacing the distributor cap and rotor should solve your problem
with it loose it could not get the proper clearance and the damage to it sure isnt helping

i really think your timing belt has slipped a tooth if its not firing on one side check
there is spark that side
fuel/gas going to that side
the leads,plugs are ok
even the distributor can be playing up but mainly the computer is telling it not to fire that side ...
