Jaguar S Stalling

Hello ... I am a new member out of desperation related to my 2000 Jaguar S 4.0. The problem is that it stalls while idling It stalls while warming, while stopped at traffic lights... anytime! It doesn't appear to be related to accessory status (air conditioner, power steering, electrical accessories).

It has been at the dealer 4 times covering a total of seven weeks our of the last 12. They experience the problem but can't fix it. Jaguar isn't helping at all!

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Does anyone have a clue to the cause and fix?

Thanks, in advance for helping out this novice new member.

    Have you looked into your state's Lemon Laws?

    Maybe you should pursue Jaguar to take back the car. Engine stalls/shutdowns are a serious safety defect/concern.

    Strange they can't fix it. How hard are they trying? Have you asked them to call in a factory tech to help them? You may need to become more proactive here and help this along. I think the S uses Ford's duratech V-6 doesn't it? This should not be a mysterious engine to repair.

    Thanks for the suggestions. As I mentioned I'm not really a "car guy." The Jaguar is a V8 (4.0) and not a six. I suspect in the know was reading the posting ... I was contacted by the factory earlier this morning. They're sending someone out early next week and they intimated that the dealer wasn't working that hard at it. Thanks to all for the comments.
