Question about Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Will not shift into 4th gear

My 1996 Jag xj6 was working fine and I stopped for gas. When I stepped down on the gas to quickly accelerate to highway speed, the car would not shift out of third gear. Now it starts off in third and stays in third. I don't think it is even starting in second (in Normal Shift Mode) and it won't start off in first gear in (Sport Shift Mode) Can anyone give any suggestions on what broke or came loose? I had a Pontiac act similarly and it was a vacuum line that came lose. I had a Ford van E150 that had a similar problem and it was a shift cable that broke. I don't know that much about the Jag yet, but I am sure I can fix it if I can find the problem. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Terry terryhume-ctr@centurytel.net

Check for a vacuum line failure or vacuum actuator failure if you have one other wise check for the down shift cable connection.

You best bet would be to look for the vacuum diagram and just take a day to make sure all of the lines to the engine and tranny are all correct. If its not it and while bucking the car feels like its going to turn off on you then it maybe a fuel delivery problem.

Take it to a transmission shop that has a Tech 2 scanner. The tech 2 scanner will not only scan the transmission but can also recalibrate the shift points. Other reason to why it wont shift under WOT it low transmission fluid pressure so check the fluid level and have a pressure test done on the line.
The 4L60E is a great transmission but there are some things that don't work well with them like some shift kits. The ECM is program the shift points which get's messed up if done wrong. best upgrade on the 4L60E was to swap out the servos for corvette servos or after market performance one's all for under $100.00 and in most case better then a after market shift kit.
Good luck and hope this help. take care not to burn up the transmission.

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

replace your transmission as. your clutches have burned and, the cost of repair would be prohibitive.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

What gear can I used for highway D3 or D4


use d4. d4 is for normal driving. d3 is to down shift the transmission in case you wanna pass. use d3 only if you want to down shift because if you leave your car in d3 on the highway, it doesnt allow the 4th gear to engage, causing your engine to run at higher revs, not only wasting more gas but also making your engines life last less. hope this helps. if you need more help, let me know. goodluck

When shifting from 4th gear into overdrive, power is lost and it feels as though there's no gas being supplied. Can only drive in 4th gear, no higher.


At what speed are you shifting to overdrive? If it is below highway speed, then you are lugging the engine

1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem


I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.
