1990 Jaguar XJS Q&A

1990 Jaguar XJS Question: Engine stalled while on road driving in outside temperature of 90+

I was driving my 1990 XJS on open road, the outside temperature was 90+ when suddenly the engine stopped. Fortunately I could pull off the road and I let the car sit for about 45 minutes. Next I tried starting the car, it started immediatly and I drove about 10-15 miles and the engine quit again. I waited about 30 minutes started the car and continued for about another 10 miles when the engine quit again. I continued to stop start this way and finally got home. The car has 69000 miles and I am the original owner and this never happened before. Any help in solving this problem is appreciated; I am not comfortable taking the car on the open road. -

Answer 2
Did this work? I'm having the same problem with my 1987 xjs and nobody can tell me what the problem is. I've spent hundreds of dollars and nothing works. -
Answer 3
My Jaguar expert determined the problem to be the "REFERENCE SENSORS". He replaced both and my 'sudden engine stop' problem never re- occurred. -
