One of the 2 Fuel line solenoid valves are shot, each are located behind the rear wheels, behind the little dirt plate cover.

Common fault on Ser 3, and quite dangerous, and costly.

Good Luck !

A FixYa would be nice....Thank´s....John

1989 jaguar xj6 keeps cutting off replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, air flow meter drives ok some times then quits and eventually starts back

If you have put in an after market fuel pump,the presure of the pump might be just at the limit.The same happen to me and it cost me $$$ to be told that my new pump was not OK.

1987 vanden plas won't start

The fuel has to be under pressure in the fuel rail. Quick check for the pressure: pinch off the fuel return line and get an assistant to crank the engine. If it needs a new check valve in the rail. Fuel is just circulating in a loop from the tank. No pressure being generated to enable fuel injectors to "fire".
If FP ok, then check the neutral sw in the trans selector hsng. if not operated when selector is in P or N engine will not start.

Check air flap in the throttle valve body is not stuck in open position. and is free to operate.The idle bleed /cold start valve needs the air flap to be operational.

Check connecting bellows between throttle body and inlet m'fold to ensure no air leaks. If leaking it will by-pass the control in the throttle body.

Not aware of your skills so for me to start getting into the other possibles would be a bit premature.

Ran out of gas and now she won't run!

i would say that you have a bad fuel pump or if you have a carb on it the float inside the carb is stuck check these and i'm sure you will find it's one of these.

The most likely problem is a worn out fuel pump.
