Question about Jaguar Cars & Trucks
96 XJ6 ? try the engine breather as sometimes this can cause this sort of thing ,but i have a XJ 94 4.0 lt and at 55 miles an hour it surges ,well not the engine but the autobox its like it doesnt know if it wants to be in top or third and keeps changing up and down but according to a friend of mine who was a chauffer when these cars were new he said it was a fault present when new ,or in the trade its known as fault of the model .So check it out is it the engine or the gearbox changing gear like mine?

It may be the MAF sensor. In needs to be cleaned or replaced. Located on the throttle body, under the engine cover. Might need special anti-tamper Torx sockets to remove. 2 bolts. One wire connector.
I had to replace mine on 2002 3800 V6. Bucked and shook on moderate to hard acceleration at about 3500-4000 rpms.

Well if sounds like possible a vacuum modulator or if the fluid and filter haven't been changed in say 40,000 miles or more I would recommend changing the tranny fluid and tranny filter.

hook a vacuum gauge to the intake manifold and, check for a vacuum leak in vacuum hoses and, fittings

how about the sparkplugs and the wires, you may need to tune it up, sounds like it misfires under a load, i would start with a tuneup and go from there. the other thing that come to mind could be a bad coil pack, or low fuel presusre,if you have the computer scanned and pin point the cylinder or cylinders misfiring you could try switching coil packs or plug wires to see if the misfire move and if it does you would know if its a wire coil or plug, but if its been a while sence you had a tune up i would start with that.
