Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
The leak is most likely the pump itself or pump gasket. I also see issues with the thermostat housings which can drip down from the top and look like a pump leaking. To find the problem a pressure tester needs to be installed to the coolant tank.
I usually find the leak with the tester. The best method is to clean the area very well then put the tester on it looking for the leak. Also on your vehicle you may have a leak from one of the hoses under the intake which will run down the front of the engine.
The cost for the thermostat, water pump and hose replacement will vary. To give you an idea to replace the radiator, bypass hose, thermostat, and water pump it about 5-6 hours labor. The heater hoses will be additional as they run under the intake. The parts are about $475.00 but I would need your VIN to be sure. I also see issues with the thermostat housing. Sometimes if the engine was running hot the brass inserts can strip inside the plastic and the housing would need to be replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
it is located behind the wheel hub of each tire in front...it rest inside the hub and held by one torque head bolt and the other end connects to the sensor harness.
