My XJ8L stalled on the road when I pulled over it started again
Found a Relay Part number LNA6706AA APA Relay? That the housing is damaged and corroded. Could this have something to do with this problem ? Plus I just had it in the Jag Dealership for a complete tune up new plugs, fuel filter and oil etc this last week ? it was almost like vapor lock but I live in Colorado and its not to hot right now Thank You Doug
Re: my XJ8L stalled on the road when I pulled over it...
Not sure about your problem... did the engine stall out while driving on highway? Were you able to restart after you pulled over? I and many others have had that problem. There was a recall from Jaguar involving the throttle body. Once replaced, I no long have that problem.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Just an Idea. When it dies next time check the relay temperatures, if you can. Once I had a fan relay which would over heat and the radiator fan would not work. After relay cooled down it would work(This usually happened when I was stuck in traffic). Could be a fuel pump relay. If relay is a lot hotter than the other relay could be bad relay. My thought is it will not cost you anything to try it. I think it may be something electrical over heating. 30 years ago my thought would have been the coil, when the coil started going bad it would heat up and the car would die till it cooled off.
3, 8mm bolts hold it to the t-state housing located at the end of the upper radiator hose to the engine. The new T-stat will include a new seal. (if you notice a white milky substance on the old
t-stat you have a problem which may include needing a new water pump, by I digress) Do not put any silicone on the housing or seal.
after replacement, be sure all the air is out of the system, it will need to be "burped" and topped up serveral times before you go on a long road test. Be sure to use a 50/50 mix of Jaguar anti freeze and water to fill the system.
Have you checked for any error codes?
Since your car is an 850 you should check your fuel pump relay, which is infamous for causing intermittent starting problems. Open the hood and remove the fuse box cover (4 torx screws), revealing the relays. If one of them is a green one marked 103 you should replace it with the newer, improved red relay. A used relay is cheap and should do just fine. Also, you should be able to hear the fuel pump working when turning the ignition to on. After doing this a couple of times the pressure becomes high enough for the pump not to engage. If so wait for the pressure to drop before listening for it again. Here's a topic with some info on the relay and how to check the voltage at the pump:http://www.volvo-forums.com/index.php?showtopic=15505&st=80&p=80586&#entry80586 If fuel delivery is not the problem you should check for spark.If you do not have spark the problem is likely coil, camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor. Good luck!
Sounds like it could be a number of things Coil breaking down,ignition module breaking down or a failing relay.Could be ignition relay or fuel pump relay.The relay is the quickest,easiest and cheapest option to try first.
The problem on your dakota is Very Common.
On my 10 year working on Vehicles " On US."
And I Owned a jeep's 93, 97, 2000, 2007,
I recomend Replace the Cam position sensor (hall efect pick-up)
And the Crank position sensor, Located between the Engine and transmission housing.
all times when they come damage, run and stall is the first simptom. but ane day will not run completlly.
Ok.. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
