Question about 2003 Jaguar S-Type

2 Answers

My 2001 Jaguar S Type has no acceleration above 3k RPM when is in neutral. When running at 40MPH hesitates, above 45 runs smooth (flat surface), uphill at any speed starts hesitating. Engine light comes on but code won't register in the computer. Replace fuel filter and nothing has changed. Any ideas?

High idle

Vacuum leaks or fuel pressure, or ECM.
When you press the accelerator you allow more air into the engine. The same extra air can get into the engine through leaks in the Vacuum system. Sometimes using a spray bottle of water and spraying the seams of the Intake manifold on a running engine can reveal the opening. Also spray any Vacuum lines and the Brake booster. A leak will change the RPM.
A high fuel pressure can cause an increase in RPM.
ECM- has a lot to due with timing and fuel demands.
Binding Linkage. Disconnect the throttle linkage and see if the RPM drops. If it does not, shut off the engine and work the Air horn Butterfly and check for smooth operation. It is possible that a mounting screw on the Butterfly shaft has slipped and the flap is binding or dirty.
