Hi Gerry

This is a common issue with the Jaguar S-type.

If you are parked on an incline the vehicle can get stuck in park.

You will need to rock the car back and forth while someone disengages park, so when you park on any type of incline, apply the handbrake first, before you select park.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

Leaks oil under right side of car not burning oil just puddles while parked

Did you check your oil filter to see if the leak is coming from there. Sometimes when the old filter is removed the old o ring sticks to the block. When the new filter is put on it leaks from not getting a proper seal.

Intermittent Gearbox Fault

Suggest you get the TCU codes read (Jaguar dealer or well equipped auto box specialist). Suggest you don't go component changing without a believable diagnosis, could be TCU, could be pressure or speed/load sensors, lots of things, many not as expensive as a new TCU!

Shift lever

There is a lock out solenoid that is turned on when you depress the brake pedal so you can get it out of park, it is a safety feature, if the brake light switch has a problem the issue of unable to get out of park will occur, check and make sure the brake lights work when this problem happens, if they don't then you either need a brake light switch or the wiring to the switch repaired.
