On a Jaguar 2004 S Type with v8, it wants to shift

Customer Question

On a Jaguar 2004 S Type with v8, it wants to shift immediately at startup from a stop. My 2003 S Type with a V6 never did this immediate shift. The extra shift is a bit detrimental to smooth operation (although not necessarily a rough shift) seems in-appropriate at least and a sign of transmission problems at worst. What is the likely cause?
