Your fluid needs topping up, auto matic transmissions actually use the oil to drive, not friction plates as in normal manual transmissions

I have a 2000 Jaguar S Series that won't disingage from park to any gear??? Car runs won't come out of gear ???

Check the obvious first. Is the fluid in the transmission at the correct level and the correct type for the car? Does it smell burnt ? Move on to the mechanicals. Is the linkage that controls the transmission operating? On to the electricals. Do all the connections to the transmission seem intact? Any missing connections? Burnt wires? If all the above appear to be correct then the trouble lies inside the transmission.

Depends in the mileage since the transmission was last serviced. It sounds like low pressure from the pump. It could be just a filter. You did not say where the leaking seal is, but a leaking seal will not fix itself.

After my 2000 s-type 3.0 runs for about 30-40 minutes and I come to a stop it does not want to pull when i give it gas

Without additional information it will be very hard to diagnose the problem.

1. Is it a manual or automatic transmission?
2. When you say pull do you mean that the engine is stalling out or that the car doesn't want to move forward - as in transmission slipping?
3. Have you noticed the transmission slipping before - especially in reverse?
4. Are the fluid correct?

Hi, I've got a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 2.5L and it's been acting strange lately. When in forward gear, it remains in 2nd gear and will not down/upshift (Park,neutral,reverse works fine). The speedometer...

If your transmission is leaking, that would explain the transmission not wanting to shift into other gears. An automatic transmission works off of pressure and when enough pressure builds up the valve body will switch to another gear. The most common places that a front wheel drive transmission will leak is the axle seals, there are two of them, one for each of the front axles. Another problem area is the transmission pan gasket and the transmission lines. None of which are really a hard fix. Do not drive the car if with the transmission fluid level low as you will damage the transmission and will be looking at one heck of a repair bill. Also, make sure that you use dex/merc transmission fluid that is approved for your cars transmission. There are several different brands and types available and although they are all automatic transmission fluids, there is a significant difference in them.

Leaking transmission fluid

This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can
