CAR TURNING OVER, THEN STALLS

1998 Jaguar XJ8

1998 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 13000 miles

I had an accident and was hit from behind. Car turns over and then stalls. Fuel switch has been reset, but no result. Since reset car will not turn over. Is it possible that the timing jumped due to the impact? Could it be the fuel pump or fuel cut off relay?

Hello. Thanks for the donation. Much appreciated

Reset the inertia fuel cut off switch again. See if it starts firing up again. Sounds like the alarm/immobolizer may be tripped lock and unlock the doors a few times to reset the immo system. The timing should not jump due to a collision !

Hope this helps
