Jaguar s type not getting enough fuel under load

Asked by Jul 11, 2014 at 05:08 PM about the 2001 Jaguar S-TYPE 3.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an s type 2001 3litre that sounds fine
when idling, and revs with no issues, but
when you put it under load it simply isn't
getting sufficient fuel, and starts to fire on
fewer cylinders. It doesn't cut out and will
return to idling fine, but simply judders
under load. Any ideas what may be wrong?

Check plug,s

I've eliminated things like plugs. It's fine when the cold start is active but as soon as it turns off it splutters and simply doesn't get enough fuel.

Check fuel pressure,may have a weak fuel pump.
