Rpms going up and down and trouble shifting gears

So I have a 2003 Jaguar S-Type that has automatic and a button for standard too. The automatic side wouldn't shift gears and made a loud sound when rpms would go up and down very fast. I started using the standard side and the rpms move up and down but not as bad. Lately when in idle the car the rpms go up and down when parked. My dad checked the transmission fluid and that's fine and full. Not sure what this could be but I want this looked at and don't know where to start.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have a 2005 Jaguar X Type 3.0L..

I have had this issue. I however had been to the automatic car wash earlier. I had driven back home and everything was fine. It sat for an hour or two then I went around the corner.. it began stalling. The engine light came on so I slowly made it to AutoZone. On the way the rpms were jumping. And it wasn’t wanting to shift past 2nd.

I had the codes ran. Apparently, water had gotten inside the engine and the only thing to do was to dry it out by using it. Cautiously. Like in a parking lot super slow but in motion. I did start off on idle and it was better by the next day.
