Have you looked into the possibility of an O2 sensor? or Vacuum Hose loose?

Also, is this a 6 Cylinder 3.0L or 8 cylinder 4.0L Jaguar S-type?
Are there any codes tripped in the computer that might give a clue?

Car turns over but i'm getting no spark what could cause that or how do i fix that so i get spark

Start with the ignition coil. It should have power to it with key on. Should be battery voltage on the primary circuit to the coil-that's the coil positive terminal. If the coil is good, it could be a bad ignition module-the module cuts primary current to the coil when commanded by the engine computer.
It could be several things-fouled plugs, bad plug wires, cracked distributor cap, bad rotor, crank sensor or pick up coil (inside the distributor), pcm. Test the ignition coil, or try a known good coil.

Engine vibration

Could be several things, bad motor mount(s), vacuum leak, MAF sensor (DIRTYor bad), IAC(idle air control) if it has one, bad plugs and/or wires, cheap crappy gas, dirty or partially clogged injector(s).

engine missing could be caused by faulty spark plugs and wires,bad ignition coils,dirty fuel injectors,leaking egr valve,low cylinder compression,intake vacuum leaks.many things will cause engine to miss, first do minor fix,replace distributor cap and rotor,replace spark plugs and wires,clean fuel injectors,replace fuel filter and air filter,if this minor tune up dont help engine and engine still missing, do a vacuum test and compression test to check condition of engine.engine could be worn out have low compression by worn valves and pistons rings.

Can it have a short in we put cole packs on it new alternator batterie modulare ouder the cole pack but it is still like it is miss firing can you help us been broke down for 3 weeks realy need our car

If the coil pack did not resolve the issue you are experiencing, then you may either have an injector issue, or a faulty PCM-powerterain control module, also known as the vehicle's computer.

My 1995 Olds 88 shakes and has a pretty bad vibration when the car gets up to about 55 MPH and drops down into overdrive. I was wondering if this is a transmission issue or perhaps motor mounts gone bad.

Hello Cransbottom.
The most likely issue here is a misfire.
When your car is at this speed and in overdrive it requires the most power from the ignition coil to jump the gap at the spark plug.
This is because the fuel mixture is very lean and the engine is putting out lots of torque.
The spark is jumping off at the weakest point rather than jumping the gap at the spark plug.
It could be at the ignition coil, a bad ignition wire or the spark plugs.
Remove the spark plugs and look carefully on the white insulator for black/brown streaks down the side. If there are traces, replace the spark plugs and the ignition wires. The wires will be burned on the inside of the boot and the spark will track down there as well.
This is called carbon tracking.
This will also occur on the ignition coils but is more rare.
I have fixed many of these cars with the same symptom as you are experiencing and I believe you should begin with that.

2005 chevy cobalt 2.2 is running rough (putting)

Number three cylinder is miss fire,it does not mean it is the coil,although it could be,remove the coil,and boot,and spark plug,inspect them to see if the plug,or boot look bad,replace the spark plug,and if the boot is burned or distorted,replace it,a fuel injector can cause a miss fire also,but change the spark plug and see if this solves the problem,if not replace the coil,if it is a dead miss,then the coil might be bad,as for the water in the fuel ,the cap is missing,,and 5 dollars worth of HEET will not hurt,also,fuel from the fuel station,can have water in it.It happens a lot.
