If you check, the replacement the dealer installed in your car was likely a "certa" unit which is another word for a factory rebuild. Therefore a rebuilt transmission will not be anything "new"
If you press the issue, you will likely get Jag to replace yours with another certa unit. You may need to make a bit more "noise" though.
In choosing a private shop to do this work, ask around and see who has a really good reputation."Branded" shops are franchises and as different as dogs and cats when it comes to quality. If you have friends with a similar car, see who they have used. If you use a private repair shop ask who they "job" their trans work out to.
It may take a bit of shopping but you likely will find someone who can do the right job for you!

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

SOURCE: white smoke, water vapor at
Water vapor coming out of the exhaust at initial start-up is normal; that is condensation that collects when the engine is not running. White smoke at start-up depends on a couple of things. Tell me, where do you live? When the weather is very cold, all engines will emit steam (white smoke) when they are first running; this stops after the engine has been running a while and is warm.
In short, if this is only happening at first start of the morning and goes away over time, there is nothing wrong.
If, however, the "white smoke" continues and never stops, you may have a blown head gasket.

First off check the battery. Try and jump start it. If that does not get the vehicle running you may have a problem with your J gate as it will not start unless in park or neutral. If an internal electrical fault has happened then the micro swith may not send a signal to the ecu to allow the car to start. the J gate is the gear selector by the way
