Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type
That's specific enough to be spark plugs and/or wires. Depending on the year (engine placement) it might be easy to check yourself but it'd also be relatively quick for a mechanic to do the same. If it were anything more serious like a crankshaft sensor, or the crankshaft itself, the car wouldn't maintain idle long enough to drive. Best to take care of this ASAP though.
