Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8
Car initially doesn't want to move then after a thud. "Gearbox fault" and slowly builds speed. If you can keep moving doesn't seem so bad i.e. can do 50mph (didn't do more than - I was being cautious) reverse seems OK. Been told need new gearbox. - Seems a bit drastic?
I'm not familiar with the jag but my ford is similar( no dipstick). I'm led to believe these are designed to prevent overfilling, which can blow out the seals. I undo the top pipe which goes to my radiator to cool the trany fluid, then get a 1/2 metre length of plastic tube to fit between the disconnected pipe and a 1 litre bottle of fluid. I then squeeze the fluid in that way....no more than a litre at a time, then try driving it again..Hope this helps.
