Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6
I took my car to jaguar dealer (Jaguar 1995 XJ6), My problem was that the car stalled in idle. The changed the oxygen valve sensor for large fee and I still have the same problem. The car runs great, but I am driving with one leg on the gas pedal to hold the RPM from falling below 650 RPM to prevent the engine from stalling.
Any idea what to do next?
Mike, There is a sensor unit on the air filter coming into the car. Just buy one from a junk yard for about 20 dollars. You can change it yourself. with a screwdriver and it has a plug in on it.That sounds like the problem and the dealer never sees it either. Byron Kittrell

I had this problem with my wifes car. I went through the car top to toe and found more than one problem causing this intermittant issue.
I found a weak crank sensor, when warm it was intermittantly losing a signal, replaced it and the problem was a little better, I then found that the throttle position sensor was also intermittantly not within the range it should be, replaced it and it helped, I then was getting the oxygen sensor code and that was only due to the car stalling, nothing to do with the o2's, I finally traced the final issue to the integral harness on the valve body inside the transmission, I replaced that harness and fitted a new transmission speed sensor and the car has been perfect.
I know you have several issues here that could be your problem but you now have a base to start from.
Last thing is the car may just need an engine set-up if you are no longer having any codes. This is only done by the dealer using there WDS computer system. The perform a oxygen sensor orientation test, they set-up the kick down and also set-up the Throttle positon sensor (TPS).
Hope this helps.
