I have had repeated episodes (3) of sudden engine stalling while at freeway speed. There is no warning, only the panic of realizing that the engine is no longer operating. The car cannot be restarted in any but the Park position; which means I have had to drift over 2 or 3 lanes of traffic, seeking a safe place to park and restart. In all cases (3)it starts immediatley and operates for few months with no glitches. It has been to the dealer twice before. They have changed the Throttle Body and replaced some relays and checked all the electrical grounds. All to no avail; it stalled again on 5/26/01, and the preliminary input from the dealer is again focusing on the throttle body.Does anyone have any information on this problem? Has anyone else experienced the same problem with a 1998 Jaguar XJ8? Any help or comments would be most welcome.
