Check air filter and clean throttle body.


Check the pressure at the rails..

Sounds like you may have some dirty fuel injectors.


Are you sure it's a 1998 XJS? In thought they quit making the XJS in 1996! I have a 1996 XJS and all info I have says it was the last year they were made.


Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator.
