Currently my Jaguar S-Type is jerking when taking off to the expressway or starting from a stop light. Also is stalls when idle at a light. Going up hills is sluggish and slows down and jerk. If as if the engine is not getting the gas needed. Your advise on the problems causing this and what other host of parts creating this problem. Thank you.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube How long has it been since you had a tune up? If never been done and have more than 50,000 miles on car you might consider spark plugs and fuel filter. Also if your air filter has not been changed for awhile you might want to do that as well.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive A good repair shop should be able to properly diagnose the cause of your drivability concern. It is possible the vehicle is in need of a tune up, has a faulty sensor, or fuel system issue.
