Good morning gentlemen.
I come to you with hope that you will somehow, off the top of your head, know exactly what I am referring to in my meandering sprawl, and reassure me that everything is fine, or at least that a quick fix with a hammer and duck tape should return this heap of steel to the elegant chariot that it was once hoped.
My wife’s grandfather has allowed me the use of his '91 Jaguar XJ6 and I find myself stuck. I am aware of the engine knock…or ping…or whatever it is, but there is another noise, when accelerating as hard as this boat can.
It seems like power is dissipating somehow, because it doesn’t always happen like this. Sometimes, without letting me know of it’s viriloty, the engine stops with it’s flactulence and launches like the European it dreams to be.
I have brought this to the attention of a mechanic and they don’t think anything is wrong. Am I insane or is this something you have hear of?
There is so much wrong with the car, but this is something that has particularly bothered me.
Please help, I would call and give you a bad immitation but I don’t know when you are live. Love the podcast. Please keep it up, you make Dallas roads bearable. Thank you
