Check and make sure you used the right type of lube. The reason I say this is a feww years ago i put 90weight in one of mine and it would not shift they are several types of gear lube used nowdays some gear boxes like like automatic tany fluid. Just something to check.

sounds like it is in get you home because of gearbox failure if its the early box with metal sump check selector cable adjustment it critical as the J gate micro switches and the linear switch on the side of the gearbox have to be in sync with each other. on the other hand if it is the later gearbox with plastic sump, which i suspect it will be, check it has not lost some of its oil due to leaking sump, common problem! other wise check fault codes in transmission control module, any codes relating to incorrect gear ratio means internal falure most times
Sounds like low on oil but i dont think this year has a dip stick and its a dealer only job to check the oil level but with a funnel and a breather on top of the gearbox you may be able to add a litre and try it ??
check the oil level in the gearbox with the engine running and in drive ,handbrake on of course ,if oil ok then throw it away as the repair is more than the car is worth ,1988 ?? tops its only 500 uk pounds just look on autotrader.co.uk
are the drive shafts ok ,check the oil level as well,start engine ,handbrake on and a brick behind the back wheels ,now drop into reverse and then wipe the dipstick and check oil level.If you have a later model you may have have it up on ramp and check oil level is to the filler plug level
look in the engine bay and you will find a big dip stick near the back of the engine bay this has a long dip stick on it, thats were you "top up" the atf fluid,, dont over fill the gear box, only add oil a little at a time
hi, you should only use the correct oil for this type of gearbox, available from the jaguar dealer, for the price of posibly damaging the gearbox with the wrong oil you may as well pay a little more from the dealer. regards mark.
