Question about Jaguar XJ8

1 Answer

When on the motorway at speed ie 60 mph plus (xj8) the car will stall under braking, this can as you can imagine be a little scary. I have had the car connected to a diagnostic machine that reports no faults. The car has covered 60k since it had a brand new engine fitted by Drabble and Allan prior to my ownership. Many thanks Stuart

Have 97 gmc suburban. Has a jerk to it when I'm crusein on highway and from time to time seems as if im hitting a bunch of little bumps an it boggs down. I let off gas it stops what could this b?


Could be the fuel filter. Watch the speed it happens. IE.. Ok at 50 MPH, hit 60 MPH it starts jerking. Clogged filers will give the pressure need, just not the volume of fuel need at higher speeds.

My cadillac 2005 srx has developed a scary shudder around 35-40 mph and again around 60 mph. It shakes the whole car at these points during a very gradual acceleration. It feels like my transmission...the...


Likely a rotating part hitting a resonant frequency. It might be a universal joint on the drive shaft, a wheel out of balance or tire out of round. You might try lightly touching the brakes while maintaining the same speed. If it's something to do with tires or wheels, that would likely stop it. My first car would oscillate violently after hitting a bump in the road, due to a loose suspension part.

Sitting at a steady speed on motorway it stutters


If you are travelling at about 55 to 65 mph and it does this then your wheels need balancing its about £7 per wheel and nothing to worry about, but do get it done asap. other thing could be the brakes but its unlikey you would feel it at speed.

Hi There, My Freelander loses power at about 70 mph on hills on motorways and slows down to 60-ish. I have no warning lights coming on, no drop in revs, no exhaust smoke and no overheating. After easing...


if your vehicle slows from 70 downto 60 with no change in revs ,then the transmission is slipping .. imust say i dont believe that the speed drops back without the revs dropping down too, i am not calling you a liar ,i`m saying you are not making accurate observations , and without those we are just guessing .

Peueot 306 stalls for no reason


If it only stalls when you stop check the hose to the brake booster. They can crack and leak or it could be the booster itself.
