1997 XK8 Transmission Failure. Will 2001 XK8 transmission work

I have a 1997 XK8. Transmission slips in forward gear. In reverse it backs up in a strained crawl. When foot is removed from accellerator, car abruptly stops as if transmission in 2 different gears at same time. Will a 2001 XK8 transmission interchange with the 1997? I have found several things that will interchange and several things that will not.

I had a similar problem with my 1997 XK8. Apparently the transmission will not last much more than 100,000 miles. You need to replace the clutch in the transmission - cost between $2,500 and $4,000.

Starting in about the mid 1980's automatic transmissions changed from fluid shifting to electronic shifting. In other words, your shift is by an electronic solenoid controlled by the computer. There is no Shift cable gong to the transmission. Just wires. You need to look for a loose or dirty electronic connection to the transmission.

Check transmission fluid level Almost all transmission slip problems originate from not enough fluid

V70 poured new Dex3 auto trans in. Reverse gear stops working after a few days equal 500km, but all forward are still ok.


Sounds like your transmission is going bad. If your transmission is slipping only in drive or forward gears, then it could be just that it is low on fluid, but when reverse starts to slip it usually means rebuild/replace transmission.

Good luck

check for any electric switches on or around your shifter . but the slipping worries me its hard to say your interpretation of slipping and mine are probably very different

My transmission on my 2001 odyssey is not working. all gears forward and reverse the transmission just slips what do i do ....


You might try changing fluid & filter. If that doesn't cure it, then it's off to dealer or a transmission shop.

1997 chevy blazer awd - no reverse and slipping in forward - oil good no leaks - whats this?


It sounds like the sun shell inside the transmission that is faulty, and that is due to a manufacturing process..
Unfortunately, this problem requires a rebuild or replacement of the transmission. The same thing happened to me about a month ago with my 97 Blazer. It cost me $1200.00 for a local transmission shop to rebuild mine.
"
The "sun shell" connects the reverse input drum to the sun gear. The 2/4 band wraps around the reverse drum. When the reverse clutches are applied the sun shell spins the sun gear. When the 2/4 band is applied the sun shell holds the sun gear from spinning. This is why when it breaks you lose reverse, second and fourth"
