Missing Cylinders: 1998 Jaguar XJS Convertible

This next car comes as a tip from David in Tampa who writes: The programmable fuel injection alone is a thousand dollar proposition. I’d imagine it’s easy to troubleshoot with manufacturer diagnostics. Thank god I don’t have space for another project because this looks like a month of my life that could’ve been better spent loafing on the couch.
