SOURCE: how do you put in transmission fluid?

This is the one year Honda/Izuzu did not put a fill tube in the engine compartment for the automatic transmission. They thought it would prevent contamination of the fluids. The fill plug is on the top front of the transmission. It requires a small pump to lift the fluid up and into the hole.
WARNING: Do not remove the plug until you complete the following.
To add fluid the vehicle must be completley level, and it helps to have it elevated so you can get under it. The best method is a hoist/lift in a dealership, but I was able to use some heavy jack stands.
The engine must be running and the fluids warm and the gearshift in drive. Be sure to set all of the brakes and use caution.

SOURCE: transmission fluid

Check stik should be on left side of engine. Remove and check. You will need a long spout to add fluid. .

2005 jaguar si start canot put shifter in drive

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You may have a broken shifter cable or it may have come loose. I would check that first. Check your fluid in the transmission. If you have a check engine light on, you need to get the error codes. It may be a bad transmission or components.

I have a 2000 jaguar, can't find where you put in the transmission fluid

You can't add fluid yourself, it is done by the dealer, underneath the car. There is a special adapter needed to insert fluid on the passenger side of the trans just above the oil pan.

You will need dealer or trans expert assistance.

Sorry, and Good Luck!

Dont know wher to check the transmission fluid

Why do you need to check it as it is a sealed unit and as per jaguar does not need to be checked so they say.......

Having said that there is a allen head screw on the right side about 3inches above drain plug. Take it off and see if fluid comes out if not add until it runs out and put allen screw back in. No there is not a dip stick. To add fluid there is a rubber plug or allen screw on top of tranny behind battery box. You will need a long funnel.

99 jaguar transmission code p1722

This code is an indication that the transmission has excessive slippage, the code is for the input and output turbine speed sensors, based on what i know of this problem the trans has a mechanical problem, that would be low fluid pressure or worn out forward clutches, make sure the trans fluid is not low, if it is ok you will need to have the trans torn down for inspection..

you do not have a dip stick.

Item Part Number Description 1 — Fluid fill plug (bench) 2 — Fluid level 3 — Fluid drain plug (large) 4 — Fluid level and fill plug (small) 5 — Fluid level tube

  1. NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    With the transmission in the PARK position and the engine running, use a 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  2. Allow the fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. When the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip, it is at the correct level.
  3. If no fluid comes out of the hole, fluid will need to be added. Continue with this procedure.
  4. Install the special tool into the pan.

Locate where to pour transmission fluid

DO NOT pour transmission fluid into this transmission. This is a sealed transmission and should ONLY be serviced by a qualified Jaguar Specialist. It uses VERY specific and expensive transmission fluid, and if the wrong fluid is used, it will fail shortly. This will end up costing thousands of dollars. If you want to have a local Transmission Service Center do the work, be sure to confirm they know how to deal with the Jaguar.

I know, because I own a 1999 XJR and have already looked into this.

I've heard quotes for changing the fluid range from $300 - $800. A bit ridiculous if you ask me, but a mistake will cost dearly. I've heard Transmissions for these run from $2000 - $6000, depending on who you ask. Jaguar will not even rebuild them, so you would need to find a qualified Jaguar Transmission Shop.
