I have a 1984 xj6. My problem is when the car is accelerated, it cuts out and makes a pooping noise, then stalls out.

Its not a stupid question there isn't a lot of info on that old of a jag available to me.I'm trying to find that info so when it cuts out looses power and stalls does it do it every time you try to accelerate?Also when it stalls does it restart right away?

Yes it starts but that's it. Won't move, if I wait about 15, it starts and I can move a short distance, then it cuts out again. I hope I made sense

When you say it will start but won't after it dies what do you mean?Is the transmission inop no gears or is there just not enough power to move the car?

Not enough power to move it pops and stalls out

Do you have a cat on the exhaust of the car?You could have a exhaust restriction.
