1987 Jaguar XJ6 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250000 miles
I have a 87 Sov with square headlights. Never had a major prob for 20 years until now. While driving, it will suddenly start backfiring, turns off and stops. It works fine until this happens. It feels to me like for whatever reason, the engine suddenly starves of petroll. Air hoses, cooling hoses, fuel lines, electrical, and all connections had been checked, cleaned and replaced. What I have noticed is that just before the engine starts backfiring, I can hear some ticking sound coming from the glove compartment. These ticking sounds like wires are touching each other. But I amnot an electrician. Can anyone help. I would gladly donate soon as I can afford it.
have the same problem?
