I have a 2001 Jaguar S Type with 125,000 miles. It runs good, mileage is good. Problem is when the car has been driven for a while and then sits for a bit the engine spins over for 30 seconds before starting. When it does start, although it runs clean, there is a distinct odor of raw fuel. Cold starts are great as are immediate restarts anytime. Puddling injector? HELP
The car does not have a fuel pressure regulator. It does sound like you have a injector problem. It also could be in the fuel tank, the cars were known in that year to have a hose for the transfer pump to come off. It can cause all sorts of problems but it sounds more like a injector good luck

This could be a similar problem that happens with the XJS's, when you shut the vehicle off, there is fuel being dumped into the system and in essence the vehicle is " slightly" flooding itself.
That would explain why it doesn't do it when it's cold, but does it after it's been driven a bit.
On my XJS, this is the case, but it always starts.
Give this a try, after you have driven it a while, try to start it normally, if it doesn't after 5 seconds or so, turn the key off completely, then try to start it again.
