Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8
2000 XJR. pressing accelerator - nothing happens - ease off, re-press pedal, acceleration OK. Supercharger only works occasionally. Transmission problems starting to show - drive can suddenly stop but engine still revs fine. Move selector into neutral, back to drive, and off we go.
Now, restricted performance light coming on occasionally - goes out after a while. At idle, car is 'surging' slightly and turnover seems very unstable.
Are all these problems linked or indicative of very big bills ahead ? Transmission last checked about 8 months ago = no problem detected.
Any thoughts welcome !
If its a v8 its gonna be your throttle body its a complete assembly and is a common problem on these models

yes it sounds like a vacuum leak possibly the line going to the brake booster try to start the car open the hood and listen for a hissing noise you may be able to inpoint where the leak is and fix it with a new piece of hose or a fitting

SOURCE: 01' Jaguar XJR Starter location?
If you get just a click you should first check battery charge and all battery connections. The click is probably the solenoid kicking in but without enough battery to turn over the engine.
