Question about 1988 Jaguar XJ6
1988 jaguar xj6 4.0L v6. engine cranks over great has spark but will not start. I can run the car off of ether or starter fluid, but once i stop spraying it dies out. I hear the fuel pump kick on when i cycle the key but it seems as though it wont stay on. Any help would be great. Thanks alot (fellow jaguar owner)
Fuel pump is bad or plugged fuel filter it seems. Crack the line from the filter leading towards the engine first. If gas starts squirting out fast, you have good pressue. If not the filter is plugged or a bad pump. How old is the fuel filter by chance? If original its plugged up by now

Have you tried using a mallet and tapping the fuel tank? Don't beat the **** out of it, but try a few smart blows.
