first off, henders thanks a lot, jaguar is lucky to have you! will be bringing car in next week to have to above checked out, maybe ill just blank off the egr, heard its better to do so? there is a bit of a hissing sound when you floor it (jebus i sound like an idiot! :-) ) i guess for the stalling im goin to buy a new battery and see what happens. wow there goes my credit card!
dave alfa11 the timing belt i did a few weeks after purchasing it, just to be on the safe side and because it wasnt marked on the engine. so roughly end february beginning march. mechanic said that the tensioners and pulleys were fine and so was water pump (he said they were replaced not long ago.. he guessed maybe 3-4 months prior) im not sure but its done now. what happens when it stalls is a complete mystery to me, i mean it stall and then 1-3mins later it starts! also what has been happening is that the code light comes on and wont let me start the car, so i have to turn the key a few times before it starts. maybe related? i only have the red master key as thats all i got with the car. sorry for the long read and guys thanks a lot
