I have a 99 jaguar xjr. Automatic 4.0 liter supercharged. When accelerating from stop, the gears don't shift properly in 2nd and 3rd gear. There is a slight jerking motion when it shifts into those gears. Does this mean my transmission is giving out? Will a transmission oil and filter change fix this problem?

When key is turned on there is nothing, no warning lights, elec is sys is dead. After a while everything works again. Is this a problem with the ignition key component or some other part of the ignition system? Local dealer knows nothing on this.
