XJ down on power

Bit of a weird one this morning in my 98 XJ


Had a loss of power and cut out on the way to work today.


Felt like lack of fuel so I topped it up, re-primed the fuel pump and off she went.


Drove 80 miles in but she was struggling to get above 2000rpm and 60 mph.

TBH I didn't notice much as the M25 was busy and I usually cruise along at 60 MPH anyway.


Turbo on the way out??

Possibly an electrical gremlin affecting the pump and engine ecu. Might be worth doing a quick diagnostic check.
