Hi guys
I have a 1986 XJ6 and now Ken Stout is no longer, can anyone recommend a knowledgeable Jaguar Mechanic,in the Auckland/North Shore region.
I have owned the car since new and it has just ticked over 50ks.Having a bit of trouble with black @#!? Coming out of the exhaust pipes when starting from cold.I have had the the airflow meter serviced as well as a new cold start sensor but its still doing it,only when cold,after that shes fine.
Any ideas very much appreciated.

Did you get this sorted?
This is a common symptom with a fairly simple & cheap modification to fix.
