The plastic coolant reservoir is prone to leak. The reservoir can mysteriously lose coolant or coolant may pool under the engine compartment. If this occurs, the coolant reservoir should be inspected for cracks. If leaks are neglected, the reservoir may fail and cause the engine to overheat.

2000 Jaguar S-Type Problems
Ignition coil failure may cause the engine to run poorly. The fault can be intermittent and may or may not illuminate the Check Engine Light.
Premature automatic transmission failure is common. Diagnoses of the fault will be necessary to determine if repair or replacement is the proper repair.
The front and/or rear window regulators are prone to failure. A failed window regulator will require replacement.
The small plastic lines or tubes that carry the hot coolant to the radiator may become brittle and break. Coolant can leak out and cause the engine to overheat.

2000 Jaguar S-Type Reviews
My 2000 8 cyl S type was a lot of fun to drive; unfortunately, the high cost of repairs took all the fun out of it. Every month or so, there would be another $1,000+ bill; the best thing I ever did was sell it and buy a Honda.
My 2000 S-Type 4.0, car was purchase used, bank repo in 2005 with 48k. Soon as it hit 100k in 2010, the problems bgain. The same issues tention rods and timing. This is going to be the 3rd engine for this vehicle. This vehicle will be sold or trade in by the first of the year.
I have a 2000 S type that has been relatively trouble free for for the past 10 yrs. I bought the off lease with 25K miles on it. Recently had to replace the passenger window assembly, and the odometer has not worked for the ast two years. The only fix for this is to replace the instrument cluster, and it seems that I must go to a Jag dealer to get this repaired. I have to drive 80 miles round trip to find a dealer. Sucks! I really want to keep the car but I'm pissed that I can't find someone else to fix my ride.
This is the best car I ever owned and I intend to keep it as long as I can. I have no major expenses just maintenance upkeep, a very reliable car for either long or short distance.
