Hi, you might find that what you need to do is buy a fuel cleaning additive this goes into the fuel tank when you top your tank up this then cleans all the fuel lines and cleans all the injectors out properly doing this should solve your problem.
Once you have put it in your tank it usually takes about 30 miles of drive time to clean the whole system through it might be also worth getting the fuel filter cleaned if this has not been done recently.

Make sure you buy the correct fuel cleaner ie petrol or diesel then follow instructions on the bottle and you should find that over time this will solve your problem. I recommend to all my customers to use this about once every 6 to 8 weeks or so to ensure smooth running and maximum fuel efficiancy try and use a better brande product such as red x these tend to work better than shops own brands.

These can be brought from most petrol stations or car spare shops.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Air conditioning sometimes takes a while to start blowing air

Do you mean it takes a while to blow air or cold air? I am going to assume you mean cold air. Sometimes it can take a few seconds for the refrigerant to get up to speed. Especially when real hot outside. If the air is not getting cold for a long time you may have a leak. Refrigerant systems are sealed and in theory, with no leak, will always blow cold. Before you charge the coolant in your system fix the leak first or you are wasting your money. If this does not answer your question please be a bit more specific. Good luck.

No idea what the problem is either. I have a 04' LT that started doing it as well. Doesnt matter hot or cold, does it randomly. Usually when I come to a fast stop then resume speed its sounds like grinding in the dash and while hitting the gas I get NO acceleration, let off for a second then its good. Its happening more often now than before. Does anyone have any ideas?

When braking at high speed the front wheels start shaking.X type jag

If there is no vibration or other problems prior to braking, the brake rotors may be warped. If the rotors are at a exceptable thickness they can sometimes be resurfaced. Otherwise replacement of them is always another option.

Heater only blows hot when accelarating 2004 dodge stratus 2.7 could it be a thermostat or a sensor

You may just be low on coolant. When the car sitting cold open the radiator cap and check the level in the rad. Fill the rad. up and then the overflow tank to the cold line. Check this and get back to us.

Intermittant hot/cold air from heater

Had the same problem with my Mazda6 awhile back. Took it to the dealer and they found the radiator wasn't holding pressure. They replaced the whole radiator under warranty (WHEW!). Not sure how to check for that kind of thing, but it's a start.

Immobiliser won't unlock on XJ TDVi


I suspect the cold weather was the fundamental problem, usually emanating from a battery voltage drop, and kicking in the on board computer gremlins.

Jags just don't like it !

Lets hope the weather improves for you there in UK, and your little gremlin does not return.

Good Luck !
