I had the same problem it would run good in the freeway but if I slowed down it would turn off. If I was driving in the city same thing good until I hit a light. I took it to a mechanic and it had a leak. One of the boots close to the firewall was split open and was observing air. He told me that the only place it should be absorbing air thru is thru the air filter.

If at all possible, have your engine scanned for trouble codes. With that much going on there should be a check engine light that would indicate the computer is holding codes. If there is an auto parts store or repair shop near you, they may be able to scan your engine. you really need the codes in order to quickly diagnose the problem. Otherwise, all you can do is replace parts until you find the right one. You say you changed the plugs? I think on the Sonata v6 engine that requires the entire intake assembly be removed in order to get to the spark plugs. I don't think you could have accomplished this without a knowledgeable mechanic or at least a repair manual. Most people don't realize that the park plugs are buried beneath the intake manifold assembly. I know that a dealership charges about $400.00 to change spark plugs. Your problem could be anything from a bad sensor to the torque converter being locked up.

Sounds like the intake manifold gasket. The original is defective, you can get one at a parts store for <$50 and have it installed by a mechanic.

Engine missfire


Get your local garage to put a scanner on the car. The early s-type used to suffer from ignition coil faults. If a fault has been hinted towards a specific coil then swap to a different cylinder and see if the fault follows wich will indicate a coil fault.

Has the vehicle had its spark plugs changed? every 70.000 miles as they tend to fail if left unchanged. Intake manifold requires removing to replace bank 1 plugs.

Also check the small rubber elbow on the end of the plastic beather pipe wich runs throught the intake manifold branches. Elbow is located at the rear of the engine

Hope that helps

How do i replace the spark plugs in a jaguar 2000?


THE SPARK PLUS ARE LOCATED UNDER THE VALVE COVERS, ON TOP OF THE VALVE COVERS THERE IS A SMALL PLATE COVER WITH 8 LITTLE BOLTS THAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED WHICH WILL THEN SHOW YOUR COILS, UNPLUG COILS PULL COIL OUT AND SPARK PLUG WILL BE LOCATED UNDER THE COILS.
The left side is easy, just pop off the left side engine cover...remove the coils and the plugs are right there. The right side is a whole other matter completely, you need to remove the intake manifold to be to access them. It is a relatively simple job if you are even slightly mechanically inclined. Ensure you replace the upper intake manifold gaskets when you remove the intake manifold.

Problems with 2000 S-type Jaguar


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!
