JAGUAR XJ8 ODOR PROBLEM

2000 Jaguar XJ8 • V8 2WD Automatic • 54,000 miles

The car has 54k miles. It ran fine until recently. When I start the car in the morning it is running very rough and jolts when I put it in reverse. If I do not let it stand running a while before driving it, the car has toltal loss of power and reads "restricted preformance". The problem has been getting worse. Where do I start?
What is happening to my dream car? I have also been smelling an odor when starting the car as well. Help. Sos.
