Question about 2006 Jaguar S-Type
It just turns over and back fires but will not run . there is fuel getting to the cylinders and there is a good spark . it was running fine then parked it up for a week or so now having this problem . please help many thanks jim
Give the battery a full charge....un clip the air filter housing and leave it resting in place, put your foot to the floor on the gas pedal and keep cranking til it starts up,dont release the ignition key til it fires up,it will pop and bang and then when it fires up will smoke for a little bit (couple of mins) and then it will be fine.
If that doesnt work you will have to remove all 8 plugs,clean them,pour about 2 teaspoons in each cylinder before replacing plugs then do the same as above.
What happens with these engines is the cylinders get a bit too much fuel in them and it washes the oil away down the bores thus losing comression so it wont start.Instead of starting it up and switching it off briefly,let it run a bit and then give it a little rev before switching off...hope this helps
