Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
My '96 XK8 has developed a 'lumpy' idle. Sitting at the lights in D, you can feel it juddering slightly. I can't decide whether it is the engine running slightly rough at idle speed or the torque converter/gearbox 'sticking' slightly (or indeed something else...). Either way, it isn't quite right, but as soon as you push the throttle you're away as smooth as anything. Any thoughts?
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: my 2005 audi a4 is running lumpy
Don't laugh,have you try the Champion #344 copper plug
I'm assuming you has a 1.8 liter Turbo A4
Back in my racing day,I use high energy Jacobs Electronic to boost the spark. They call for copper plugs!!!
Go to a good auto part store and look up a set of Champion plug for your engine.
