Yesterday I made the 100 mile journey to purchase a 1996 XJR6. I was happy with the car as it was in good shape mechanically and had a good history.
After a test drive we agreed a price and I began my journey home with the car. 80ish miles into it I decided I would give the car a little squirt up a hill.
After a squeek the gearbox failure light came on the dash and I lost power with a faint burning smell so I pulled into a bus stop to investigate.
I assumed I had span a belt or snapped one but all the belts looked to be in good shape. I restarted the car and it will rev but with a slight missfire and drive. I got it recovered and the mechanic seems to think the problem is electrical but I’m not quite sold on that idea.
Has anyone had any similar experiences?
Will be fixing the car regardless as iv waited a long time to finally own an XJR
Thankyou in advance
