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.

Hello,

I need the rod that comes OUT od the gearbox and connects to the flexi-link part of the gear cable assembly. Mine has snapped [The Rod going into the gearbox] - under the car not in the cabin. pls help. I just need that rod.

If it will help... Imagine the gear knob, J-Cage, the cable going all the way to the end, the flexi link and THEN the ROD [of which MINE has snapped] this is the rod supported by a plastic bush [also needed] which goes up into the gearbox. It is this ROD that I need. Can u help please.

Where can I find the inlet to poor gear box oil in to?


Depends on the make year and model, Engine size and transmission type and if it's 4wheel drive or not. Gear oil can possiblt go in the front rear end the rear rear end, The transfer case, The manual transmission. Some units don't use gear oil. Some manual steering gear boxes use gear oil too. Most all gears boxes don't have a way to pour the oil in as they have level plugs in the side at the normal fluid level. These plugs are located on the sides and they frequently can be turned with a 3/8 in drive ratchet extension. If the oil comes out or is just inside the hole with the vehical parked leavel then it's full. Yes they also have drain plugs and they frequently have the same kind and size of plug on the bottom as on the side.

A jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear and a noise from the near side rear


jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear is a common fault in the older s types. most of the time is a sign of the gear box on its way out. is worth checking gear box oil level and oil quality though. noise from near side rear would probably be the damper rose joint which make a knocking noise when they wear.

How to fix oil leak from top of a manual gearbox housing


sorry but its going to be a big job. you need to remove the gearbox to open up and get to the seals. you could try and use an additive in the gear box, its like oil seal for engine you can get it for engines gear boxes and difs and power steering. it sometimes goes by seek and seal, in older vehicles its quite good. you will need to replace the oil it will need to be done twice to clean it all out so it can get a good seal.. i.e change oil run engine get the gearbox to move for 20 min then change the oil as its warm not hot so let it cool down for 10-20 min then drain. put the seek and seal in and top up with oil and run as normal, check after a few days to see if its worked. usual does.

Hilux leaking gear oil


There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???
