STALLING

1993 Jaguar XJ6

Transmission problem
1993 Jaguar XJ6 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles

MY 93 JAGUAR XJ6 STALLS AFTER 20 MINUTES OF DRIVING. THE CARS STALLS AT STOP LIGHTS AND WHEN I SLOW DOWN TO TURN CORNERS. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS NOT ON. THE TRANSMISSON LIGHT COMES ON AFTER STALLING, BUT GOES OFF AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES AND CAR STARTS BACK UP. ALSO THE ANTI LOCK FLASHES ON AND OFF.

Replace theCrankshaft Position Sensor (CKPS)

CKPS is located at the front of engine and provides ECM with information on engine speed and crankshaft position. ECM uses information to control fuel injection pulse rate and ignition timing. CKPS is also used for sensing cranking speed.

Crankshaft Position Sensor & Timing Ring
Locate crankshaft position sensor on front timing cover. Remove clips securing crankshaft position sensor lead. Disconnect crankshaft position sensor lead. Remove sensor and housing as an assembly. Using an Allen wrench, remove sensor from housing. Remove A/C compressor drive belt. Attach Pulley Lock (18G1437/1) to crankshaft pulley. Rotate engine by hand until pulley lock is against crossmember.
Remove crankshaft pulley bolt. Attach Crankshaft Pulley Remover (18G1436) to pulley. Tighten remover center bolt to withdraw pulley. Remove timing ring from crankshaft pulley. To install timing ring and crankshaft position sensor, reverse removal procedure.

Also check/replace the Ignition Coil & Amplifier

Disconnect negative battery cable. Disconnect high tension lead from coil. Disconnect primary coil wires and condenser. Remove coil clamp bracket screws and ignition coil.
Disconnect ignition amplifier. Remove screw and detach ground lead. Remove coil mounting bracket and ignition amplifier. To install amplifier and ignition coil, reverse removal procedure.
