Has anyone experienced this problem in their XJ’s?
The car starts easily enough (even though the cold-start injector
doesn’t work) and will pull away o.k. first up.
Once the temperature needle starts to move though, the car will
miss-fire when you try to move off after a stop (in Brisbane
morning traffic, there’s lots of those). Sometimes the engine will
catch after a couple of seconds, othertimes it will stall
altogether. Just wonderful in traffic, the following drivers are
so patient as you try to get the thing started - not! The symptom
gets worse as normal running temperature is approached but once
fully warmed up, the symptom suddenly disappears and all is well
I have replaced the extra air valve, but this made no difference.
This car does not overheat, even in heavy traffic in the Brisbane
summer, where temperatures well over 30C are routine. Normal gauge
reading is 95C, where the green starts. She’s just a b**** until
she gets warmed up.
Any suggestions (maybe don’t take it out in traffic)?
