Why you smell radiator fluid?

If you are smelling the sweet but unpleasant aroma of antifreeze, your vehicle is leaking it somewhere. A lot of the time the culprit is the water pump. They have a weep hole and when the bearing starts to fail it will begging leaking from this hole. I would start by getting myself a flashlight and start scanning your engine's water hoses for a leak. Check the mail hoses going to/from the radiator as well as the heater hoses leading to the firewall. Do you smell the antifreeze odor INSIDE the car? If so, it could be your heater core that's failing.

How can you tell if the water pump needs to be replaced or if its the themostat on your jag s-type?

It is rare for a water pump to stop pumping, even if they are leaking, they are still pumping as long as the belt is there and tight. I would change the thermostst first. There are a few water pumps out there that have a plastic impeller and I have seen them break apart but that is rare.

How do you check to see if water pump leaks?

Most water pumps have a small vent hole on the bottom side of the pump. Inspect with a flashlight and check for staining (rust or color changes left behind after water runs away from the vent) related directly with that vent hole. Also check for play (side to side) in the input shaft (belt pulley or fan pulley Either of these conditions is an indication of a failed or failing water pump.
