Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
I have a xj8 year 2000 and she has been into the dealer 3 times.the engine management light is on the the fault meter says it is miss fireing on 3 and 4 they have changed the plugs ,the 2 injectors and inlet gaskets and the have done a wet test (compresion slightly lower on 3 but not much) they reset the light each time and it would come back on after about 3 or 4 days the car has done 64k
Are you loosing coolant? if so check for leaks. If you have lost a lot of coolant and then topped up your system it may be that you have an airlock, fill your system (when cold) and vent air out of the top engine water pipes, then warm engine up and check levels. Air locks can be indicated by the heater not blowing hot or the top of the radiator remains cool when engine has heated up. Also check the action of your thermostat. hope this helps - good luck.

SOURCE: Engine light continues to come
It would not be enough just to have the codes cleared. Whatever caused the warning to come on the first time, must be attended to and rectified. As the warning is still coming on it means the reason has not yet been attended to.
The vibration as you've described it may be caused by the same problem, as it would seem to be coming from rough engine performance and could be related to the emission control.
The jolt you're experiencing would seem to be something to do with the brakes....I would suggest that further investigation is required with particular attention paid to the fitting of the calipers.

Try running a good fuel system cleaner through it. LOTS of questionable fuel going around these days. Consider running cleaner every other month to keep system clean.
