Question about 2003 Jaguar S-Type

Open Question

Gearbox default light and check engine icon on

The "gearbox default" message has come on and off several times in the last week. Now the check engine icon has come on . I don't notice any change in the running of the car. It's a 2003 S type with 40,000 miles. Do I need to get it in to a garage immediately? Is it dangerous to be driving it? I don't want to cause any more damage. This is the first problem that I've had other than the brakes failing at 20,000 miles. I took it to the dealership to have them fixed and they charged me $1200. Since I'm no longer covered by warranty, I'd like to take it somewhere besides the dealership. Any recommendations for Portland, Oregon? Thanks for any help!

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

SOURCE: jaguar s-type gearbox fault when on motorway

Check under the driver side fuse box which below left of the steering wheel if there is any dampness then it s screwing the ecu,this could be due to a seal leak in the window or holes near the axle.ALso the transmission needs fluid to be change as most jag trans fluid need replacing before 75k, clearing the codes will clear the engine light which also improve the cars shifting.

My subaru impreza 2.0 turbo AWD engine has cut out 3 time in the last couple of weeks! the engine just dies no warning lights come on and after a while it restarts as if nothing wrong! no unusual noises...


Could be an air flow fault, check all your air pipes for holes or splits and also check the air flow meter and sensor. just clean them up before going any further.

Also check the earth lead from the battery to the slam panel, and to the gearbox make sure all the earths have a good contact to the car body.

Engine oil pressure warning message+gearbox noise


Oil pressure sending unit fail often and give this false indication, but because the engine will be severely damaged if the pressure is really low so hook up a manual oil pressure test gage to see what the pressure is, if it is within specs replace the oil pressure sending unit.
