Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8
There should be a dip stick marked in red for the transmission. you start the car and let it warm up you can either check the level with the vehicle in park or in neutral if the color of the fluid is red it is ok if it's brown then yes you should change it. before you change the fluid if it is a minor slippage try adding a product from lucas oil products it's for your transmission and should help with the problem it cost about 10 for a pint and is a quick fix for minor slippage. this should do the trick...please rate this..thanks

Most cars today including Jags have sealed trans. Be sure that the trans is in fact, slipping. If the car tries to move forward then 'freewheels' when placed in drive, then shifts into high gear @ around 1600rpm, the problem is electronics not the trans. No amount of transmission work or replacement will solve the problem until the electrical problem is found. Many instances of the ABS system signaling a catastrophic accident to the trans. have been a root cause.
