Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
Sometimes the car will not start after showing a warning TRANSMISSON Problem but after waiting for a while will start; at other times it will switch into FAIL SAFE MODE with restricted engine performance shortly after having started and driven for a mile or two- eventually it will come back to full power after a few miles or 30 min- basically unpredictable and repeated behaviour. it twice has cut the engine on the highway with complete loss of power- barely able to make it to the emergency lane and stop. Once the engine cut after the air conditioning suddently seemed to have stopped.
meanwhile i have come to realise that something has not been ok with the cooling system. Can one make a mistake after refilling the system-airlock??? since i had to repeatedly top up the coolant but now seems to hold the level?
