Transmission problems on my 2004 XJ with 34,000 miles

This is my second Jaguar with transmission problems. My 2004 XJ keeps lurching when I excellerate. The other day it did it so hard the transmission warning light came on. It only has 34,000 miles and the dealer says it's out out warranty because of it's age. I've had the car less than a year. Chandra

Ok ZF knows that this issue is a software issue...you will need to have new adaptation software downloaded to the module...this has been the fix for that issue.

Lurching? You mean kind of jerking when accelerating? Another person had a similar problem. To not be repetitive, this great diagnostic article points out to six possible causes of this problem:

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Transmission


The transmissions in these have several electronic components that can fail and cause this problem. My best advice is to take it to a transmission shop in your area and have them run a diagnostics. If you have an AAmaco in your area, I know that they will diagnose it, tell you the problem, and give an estimate for free.

It jerks the car when I brake and come to a stop, what is it brakes, rear end or trans mission?


Probably transmission software fault - the s type is world famous for it - go on-line and search ''THE LURCH'' then compare your symptoms to what is described. If it is the lurch you have a good chance that the problem can be fixed with the latest Jaguar software update.

Should I have the oil in transmission changed?


I would not go by the oil change company recommendation.
It's much better to go by the car manufacturer's recommendation. Look in your owner's manual for the recommended time/mileage to change the transmission oil and filter.

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.
