The car has been shaking everytime I'm in park or everytime time is started. Also, when I'm driving and I come to a stop or light sometimes it doesn't want to take off. It looks like if it kicks out of gears from drive to neutral. What do you think is wrong with it? How much do you think it will cost to fix it?
I have an 02 Jaguar S-type 3.0 liter with 86k on it. I bought the car cheap because the owner thought it needed new coils. What I found was the spark plugs were old so I replaced them, due to the fact you need to remove the intake manifold to replace the right side spark plugs, I found mismatched spark plugs. I also found moisture down in the plug wells on the 3 coils that were not firing. My solution was to replace all the spark plugs, clean and dry the coils and coil boots and apply WD-40 (water displacement - 40) liberally on the boots and in the boots. I put it all back together and it runs like a champ. No more check engine lights and no more stumbling and misfiring. So if you have the time to dismantle and inspect the coils and plugs its a good way to save some money. Or you can just replace the coils and hope the moisture doesn't build up again. Good Luck!

Check out the idle speed control. If it's defective/stuck/etc. it can cause problems like this. I've only have experience with the device in older cars with the older models of the idle control so i'm not sure exactly the specifics of the newer ones, else i'd help more.
check you motor and transmission mounts. if one of them are wore out it will cause the car to do this. i just fixed a mazda with the exact some problem yesterday, but the situation was in reverse. runs like a champ now
Check to see if the brake lights are working. The park-lock is usually deactivated by the brake light circuitry. She should be able to drive the car if she turns the key one click, puts the car in neutral, and then cranks the car. Gotta believe the ford solution will work on the Jag, since Ford owns Jaguar.

It's happened to my Jag S type V8 (2000) twice- resulting in the car being towed to my mechanic.
It's the J-gate shifter-- it's plastic piece that fails when stuck in park (it's not your transmission going out, but that will happen by 60K miles).
Way to avoid getting stuck is to first pull the parking brake before shift from drive into park. And keep the parking brake engaged when you shift from park into drive or reverse (after you have shifted, then release the parking brake). I know it's crazy, but it works! Jag even addresses this in the Owner's Manual.
Beware: the car is a piece of junk- I can't wait to get rid of mine- going on 4 years and nothing but problems, spent over $10K on repairs....
