It had sat for 5-6 days ... but went and tried this morning and it started , it has been sitting in driveway for over 2 weeks ?!? Runs fine now but I did nothing
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Ok fueling issues like a fuel pump can definitely be intermittent. Also low voltage could be the cause but I don't think that's the issue since it just sat and was not charged in that time.
