Question about 1984 Jaguar XJ
Where the fuel pump inlet sucks gas from the fuel tank, there is usually a little mesh bag protecting the pump from sucking in particles from the fuel tank. You may want to check and make sure it hasn't come loose or has a hole in it allowing you fuel pump to **** in dirt. When your pump is off, the suction goes away allowing the dirt to go back into the tank. When it's on, it'll **** the dirt back up causing loss of fuel.

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
