Question about 1991 Jaguar XJ6
Hey, the gears in my car go in with a 'clunk'. The car barely moves forward when I press the throttle. However, if it gets to the higher speed, it runs fine. That is, above 60mph. Is my tranny in 'limp home mode'? I don't wanna go pulling it out when I don't know what the problem is. Also, my ABS light has been on since I bought the car and the ABS doesn't work. Will this affect my tranny in any way? Please help me.
If you have checked your automatic transmission fluid, and its OK.
Does it smell burnt ?
Sounds like you have a mechanical problem in the transmission.
The ABS light on is another problem.
This is usually associated with a rear ABS sensor faulty, due to corrosion in the rear hub.
Give me some feed back !

Yes it's in Limp mode it will only run in 3rd gear.
As for the ABS, there is a wire sensor that attaches to the breaks,
If they don't attach that when the breaks are put back on or if they cut it because they don't know what it is your sensor light will be on.
