I've had this problem and I believe its a common problem with S types. There is a white plastic slider that wraps around a metal strut and moves up and down as the window opens and closes. The problem is that the plastic slider breaks if the car door is slammed when the window is half way down, When this occurs the slider breaks free and the wire that pulls it up and down wraps itself around the motor and jamms everything up. The fix is to replace the window regulator as a complete unit. This fairly straight forward and worth the effort as you most likely will be replacing the other regulators if you keep the car for a while. Buy the regulator either from Jag dealer or OEM part which is approx 1/2 the cost (I found mine on ebay!). Make sure your get the correct unit, left, right, front and rear are different. Take off the door panel, its all clips except you need to unscrew the two scews under the rubber insert in the door pocket first. After you have removed the panel remove the black plastic cover as well. You need to detach the glass window from the regulator, This is done by punching out the brass insert in the middle of the plastic plug that is pushed through a hole in the glass. Be careful, if you hit it too hard you can break the glass, I ended up drilling it out as this was easier. Once you have the plastic plug out the glass is detached and you can remove the regulator. This is just a few screws, the only tricky part is to get the angle right to pull it out the door frame. Installation of the regulator is just the reverse. Good luck.

No, the seals will not cure themselves, it will continue to leak until it is repaired.
because the transmission was not worked for more than a year, the seals dry up, when you start the engine the dry seals can rip or wear.

Hello. Actually you will have a lot better results if you go to one of your local discount parts houses, and buy a HAYNES SERVICE MANUAL. They sell them for your make and model for about $20.00, You will not have to use the printer ink, paper, or even have to find something to put the papers in. These manua;ls are fairly comprehensive, and easy to understand. Thank you for trusting FixYa.com to help get you going.

Keep in mind that one or more conditions as low
coolant level, defective cooling fan or fan control (overheats at
idle), plugged radiator, stuck thermstat (overheats all the time) could cause to overheating.
Also, the 12 cyl. engine is a hot-running engine to begin with, so if you've changed thermostats, did you install one that opens at a lower temperature?(that depends on your local climate too, but your thermostat may be stuck-closed, or opening at a higher temp than desired). Here's a link to good start: test_thermostat
"Never run an engine without a thermostat because the thermostat works as a system flow regulator as well. What this means is the thermostat has a specific opening that regulates the flow through the cooling system. If the coolant is allowed to flow to quickly through the radiator the coolant will not have time to transfer the heat it has absorbed. This will cause the engine to overheat"
