First,you need to put a code reader or scan tool into the connecter under the dash,and tell me what codes you have ,if any.

The LS will not go over 3000 rpm in park,as a safety feature.
I can not see it in park screaming away, so maybe I misunderstood the issues.
Is the tach just not coming down to idle speed?

V6 or V8 ??

My 2003 S-Type is misfiring when it reaches 3000 rpms. it read codes p1111, p0333,p0332,p1316,p0305,p0303,p0301,p0300.

Think you have a problem with the computer but what i have no idea to be honest ,its going into limp mode as these vehicles have a limit to the RPM you can achive on static standing .These vehicles can only be revved to 3000 rpm when stationary as this i do know from when i take this type to the test station and the sound test states 3500rpm but only 3000 can be obtained ?good job iam well known at the test station .So i would suggest that consult the dealer with the view of doing a mapping of the computer to see what the problem could be.So firstly what i would try is to disconnect the battery in the boot and join the leads together and leave overnight to discharge the memory in the computer and see if this cures the fault .
