Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

95 xj6 stall

I have a 95 xj6 and the car stall's in the mornig traffic. The transmition light comes on some time and it goes into a slow mode. I restart the car and it runs fine. I have replaced the o2 sensors tried a new air flow meter, replaced everthing around the throttle body and cleaned, put in a new battery and ran BG through the fuel system with a new fuel filter. It only happens mainly in the morning then the car runs fine. Has anyone got a clue?

    800 rpm steady, the throttle body was cleaned and I replaced all electric items associated with.

    As of now the car will not start about ever 4th or 5th time, but turns over on second attempt. Also I replaced the fuel filter.

    Also the car now tries to die but if you hit the gas its okay. This is an intermitent issue, it does it ever couple of days at slower speeds.

  • drife Jan 23, 2009

    Hi m when you start the car.what speed is the engine running at when cold  and when hot, there is a small allen key idle adjustment at the throttle stop you could turn up, but you should not have to as the throttle  body  is set. have you had any other work carried out  to the car lately

You might have to check the operation and condition of your idle control valve. These become clogged over time or wear out which causes uneven idle and stalling when operating under low revs.

Warning light comes on and stalls put in to neutrel starts ok .brake then light comes on stalls start goes in to limp mode ive got 1997 xj6 4l sov lwb thanks andy .turn off start up light gone out ok

Ok Andy, This sounds like a ddefective #2 02 sensor located afther the catallytic converter. This sensor is the critter that turns the light on and that means it is talking to the electronic control module. Either your fuel misture is way too rich or the cat converter is failing. Good Luck-Ned-

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.

92 Jaguar XJ6 stalls after breaking

First and foremost I would demand the dealer to access the situation since I assume you paid them to fix the problem. This sounds like an electronic issue between the transmission and the idle switch. When you brake with an auto transmission it downshifts thus adjusting the rpms to compensate. If this is malfunctioning it could very well stall it..
