I am going through the same thing right now on my 2000 S-type. I found that my car does it more often when it is humid or raining and the accelerator seems to affect the on and off of the light. I have alot of automotive experience myself and I hooked a scan tool to the car and it gave a throttle position percentage at 85 to 97 at an idle. On the 3.0, there are three output wires on the throttle position sensor and I monitored them and only one is not responding right. The check engine light is not on. It may be a ground or other wiring problem. I have not explored the problem further but I expect to have to replace the TPS. The Jaguar dealership here wants about $150.

its your Power Steering ur pressure pipe needs changing that's all. that's the inlet pipe in ur power steering. check under the lid of the reservoir u will find cream lick stuff. take the front wheel and under wing cover off and its just 2 bolts easy job to fix.

What does engine failure cause?

Your question is sort of backwards, perhaps you meant what causes engine failure? Engine failure causes...the engine to fail. If someone told me their engine failed I would take it to mean that it stopped running, or wouldn't start.
