    Good morning everyone,

    I have an 87 Jag XJS which I have driven for 20yrs. This year, when I started the car, it idled fine but after 35mins it just stopped cold and wouldn't start. The next day it started fine, but after 35 mins it stopped. I did the following: drained both fuel tanks and refilled adding dry gas and fuel injector cleaner, replaced the fuel filter replaced the battery, replace d the air filter. After 35 mins, it stopped You could almost set your watch by the 35mins). Apparently it's not the fuel.

    Has anyone ever experienced this before. Does anyone have any idea what's causing this??

    Hi Bob, welcome to the forum.

    I would say that something is getting warm and breaking a circuit. Could be a Relay, a fuse, or a wire or coil. When it all cools down the circuit returns until the next time.
    Where to start. When it occurs do all ignition lights illuminate before you come to a halt. Does it feel like its running out of fuel or does it just all close down.
