    Thank you for that info. The reason I put in the request my jag stopped on me the same way another person on this site quoted. After reading what he had to say I beleive I have a trottle body problem because my car stooped running I putted over and it re-started again. Could you tellme where the trottle body is located because if the fuel pump had of gone bad I don't think the car would have re- started. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I was on the freeway moving at 50 - 55 mph and it stopped running I pulled over and restarted it. Went about a half mile it happened again. The 3rd time it happen the car would not restart until about 8 trys and 15 mins. Then it restared and ran just like nothing happened. Give me your opion

It is mounted to the body in front of the tank.  You will find it on the driver's side behind the rear tire.

    More than likely you are correct.  Does the car still run now or does it alway sputter and stop running?

    Your throttle body is where the tube that takes air from your air filter ends.  I know that might be a little confusing but that is the best I can explain it.  If you take that tube off you will see a butterfly valve there.  When you press the gas pedal in that butterfly button will open.  Now you can either clean it with Carburetor cleaner or you can take it off and replace it if it has failed.  However, there are many things that can cause your car to stall out.  What were the conditions of the stall?  Had it been running long?  Where you moving or stopped?

    That's a tough one...I would try a couple of cheap things and see if that can keep it from happening again.  The first that I would do would be cleaning out the throttle body like I posted before.  The second thing I would do would be to put a good fuel injector cleaner in a full tank of gas.  My personal preference is Greased Lightening and where I live there are two places to get it, O'Reilly Auto Parts and Napa Auto Parts.  If you don't have either of those near you let me know and I will suggest another but that one is the best hands down!  Also, when was the last time that your fuel filter was changed?
