Low mileage on the Jag to be having this problem. Usually the misfire on these engines is a weak coil, and they won't set a code. The 3.0 is derived from a Ford design and it uses direct-acting mechanical bucket tappets (DAMB) for the engine they put in the S type from 2000-05.
The adjustments are done with shims. I don't have access to the mfrs. specs on this computer..It is at my shop... If the tappets are not overly noisy you should not need an adjustment, or an adjustment that would keep the valves from sealing and opening.
I suggest running a compression test and a cylinder bleed down test on the wet cylinder. This information will be helpful in further troubleshooting and would eliminate a couple of possibilites.

I hope this helps & good luck with the Jag.

What does the error code P0304 mean?


A p0304 is a cylinder misfire on number 4 cylinder. Possible causes are faulty spark plug wire, bad spark plug, or faulty ignition coil. Depending on how many miles are on the vehicle, you may just need a simple tune up.

How do I change the coils on a 2000 Jaguar S-type 4.0.


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!
