Jaguar s type 2000 3.0 V6

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my jaguar 3.0 v6 (2000) it start 's fine from cold and ticks over normally at normal revs but when you press down the accelerator pedal the revs wont go over 3000 revs. When the pedal is pushed flat to the floor a lot of smoke is produced from the exhaust and a strong smell of fuel then the engine cuts out. The car contains no error codes and the engine management light does not come on. The car can be restarted again straight after but the same problem occurs when you depress the accelerator pedal. I have changed the spark plugs and coils and checked for any vacuum leaks but fault remains

Welcome to the both Mike and Andy.

The problem of mucky injectors usually comes down to  the lack of the occasional blast which often works. 

And for a few shillings you can get an injector cleaner to add to your petrol -- Wynns have a good product, and there are quite few others on the market.

I often give my 2.7 diesel a blast with s button on, to taking the "J" gate into 4th gear manually and a couple of minutes seems to clear any cobwebs.

Regards, 

Peter.
