Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
2000S 6 cyl Jag S model. Occasional miss while engine idling. Diagnostic instrument shows ignition problem #6 cyl which is only cyl that has not had coil replaced. Which of the 3 coils easily accessed under head cover is #6? By phone 2 local shops said intake manifold has to come off, 2 1/2 hrs labor. Nearest Jag dealer, 3 hours away, confirmed that # 6 is one of the upper and easily accessed. I want to make sure the shop I take it to doesn't try to screw me.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

2000-2002 S-Types are horrible for this problem. Especially around 80,000 miles or more.
You are feeling a misfire(s). If no check engine light, then the computer can't determine exactly which cylinder is misfiring. Yes the coils are under the black covers on top of the cam(valve) covers. One per clyinder. I would recommend replacing all eight as the new coils are a newer design and if you just replace one now you will be replacing them one by one very soon. Make sure the tech inspects the cam(valve)cover seals for leaking, as they are bad to leak into the spark plug wells and cause same problem. Also change spark plugs as well at this time. Good luck!

The best way to find out coil problems is retrieving the TC's. If any of the coils is defective and misfire occurs, there should be a Trouble Code stored in the PCM memory. Have your vehicle's computer scanned for Trouble Codes, even if the Check Engine Light is NOT "ON". Many auto parts stores, like AutoZone and Checkers and Auto Repair Shops, offer this service for FREE, you'll get a print out of the codes and their meaning.
On the valve cover gasket issue, there may be small traces of oil somewhere along the valve cover, (heat will make the gasket shrink) but, most of the time, re-tightening the valve cover bolts will take care of it.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
