Im having trouble with my xf ghia, the engine turns over and will idle while the choke is on at 1k+ rev mark, but once revs drop below this, the car will simply shudder and die.
cant find any loose or cracked vaccuum hoses, any ideas on what to do here guys?
maybe adjust idle timing? if so how to do ?
