Engine Performance problem
1998 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I own a 1998 Xj8 that stalls intermittently on the freeway and starts up immediately after stalling. I recently had work done on the car after having parked the car for roughly one year. I had three mechanics diagnose the car, saying that I needed to replace the secondary timing tensioners.
The recently had the following work done two weeks ago, the mechanic:
- Replaced all secondary timing tensioners replaced (the top left & right, and the bottom).
- Also replaced the timing blet, the surpintine (pardon my spelling) belt, timing chain, all spark plugs, the water pump, thermostat and housing, valve cover gaskets.
Because the car would not stay running after having the above work done, I also replaced the fuel pump.
But now the engine dies intermittently when I drive my car on the freeway.
I was told that it may be the trottle body. However, the current trottle body on the car is know more than three years old. Before I spend more money unnecessarialy does anyone have a suggestion as to what may be causing this problem.
Thank you in advance.
