Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
I have owned my 1998 jag xj8 from brand new and until last week it has run perfectly, the engine starts fine and will keep running if the revs are kept above 2k. but as soon as i ease off the throttle the revs die away complely and being automatic its almost impossible to drive like this as when engaging drive the car either stalls or screeches through the garage door. any ideas ?????
Is the check engine light on ? find dle air valve mounted on throttle body ,remove an clean with spray carb cleaner , or look for vacum leak.

Obviously, without the vehicle in front of us, we are all guessing here, but it sounds to me like a vacum or air intake leak as well.
