this is a old model and it should have a cold start valve or it should have a coolant temp sensor, replace the colant temp sensor which is usualy located on the thermostat housing or on the intake manifold and this will sove the clod start problema!!

Underneath the pollen filter housing under the bonnet the ECM (engine control module) is located,If any of the drains are blocked you could be getting water into the ECM....Just a thought...Hope this helps

notorious for being very hard to time both carbs ..sim. probs.haunt many multi carb . set ups just ask any one with old triumphs .if carbs have never been rebuilt i think it might be time .if they have it might be time to replace .if replacing try finding ones with a fule management system.

this may be a sticking air flue meter take a matchstick .and push it into the hose this will let more air in if this works change the air flue meter

First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?
Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.
When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.
when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.
