I HAD TO REPLACE MY IGNITION COIL. IT IS WAS ACTUALLY SIMPLE TO DO BUT THE DEALERSHIP WAS GOING TO CHARGE A ARM AND LEG TO REPAIR. I ORDERED A NEW IGNITION COIL AND REPLACED IT MYSELF. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS REPLACING A SPARK PLUG.

same issue misfire number 3 cylinder
My 2000 Jag S-Type started cutting out really bad. I took it to the repair shop and had it put on the engine analyzer which stated I had a misfire on #2 cylinder. Coil and plugs were replaced. It is still doing the same thing.

Valve cover gasket leaked oil into spark plug wells shorting out the ignition coils. Gasket and ignition coils had to be replaced.
Engine running rough repaired coil #2 and spar plug
