Look at your spark plugs holes, one or two probably have water in them, from car wash or condensation from the coil cover

I have a 2000 Jaguar S-type with little over 100k miles and I was pleased with its performance on the Highway as it shifts smoothly and puts out great power for a V6. Lately though, it has been shaking...

Hard to diagnose your problem from my laptop but if it shakes in the morning I would asume a cylinder or two are misfiring. I would pull the plugs out and see what the engine is doing. Not an easy task as the manifolds have to come off to get three of the plugs out. Also do you have the check engine light on? If so the codes will tell you what, if any, cylinders are misfiring. Possible lazy coil packs ( one for each plug ), worn out plugs, etc.

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

I ahve a jaguar s-type 1999. Where is the idling valve? My car is not idling well. It's the 3.0 v6.

The normal cause of bad idling on these engines is either air leaks on the top hoses or/and around the inlet manifold. Also sometimes either the throttle body or faulty coil/plug pack.
hope this helps.
