    Had to change the transmission as it was diagnosed as running on burnt oil and a faulty sensor.

    Costs of this repair were $8000.+taxes.

    Now I have a 'failsafe engine ..'light coming on after about an hour's drive. It was now diagnosed as APP fault (part #XR819172)= $505.00 + taxes.

    haven't fixed it yet.

    Any suggestions.

I would suggest it was a sensor fault rather than a serious malfunction.
It could simply be a stuck sensor plunger.

Keep an eye on it though, as sometimes things gradually get worse over time.
If it starts to happen more frequently or you get noticable problems or noise, then I would suggest getting it checked then.

Brake pedal goes to floor

From the symptom you have stated, there is a problem with brake system. You have not mentioned whether you have any braking effect on the vehicle when the brake pedal goes to floor. Anyway, you may check the following:
1. Check brake fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir. If the level is less, then you have to go to a garage as just filling up the fluid will not help and the brake hydraulic system needs bleeding.
2. Get the brake adjustment of all the wheels checked by an experienced garage mechanic.
3. Get the Brake Master and Wheel cylinders checked by an experienced garage mechanic.
4. The brake liners might be worn out. Get the same checked by an experienced garage mechanic.
5. Brake pipes which convey brake fluid from Master cylinder to the wheels might be leaking. Get the same checked by an experienced garage mechanic.
Whatever may be the cause of the symptom, do not use your vehicle till you get the problem solved as you are accedent prone without the brake system proper functioning.
Good luck..

I have an 05 2.2 x type sport jaguar which has developed

Hi your car is finding a fault at 40 mph and not storing the code when you cycle the ignition because its not there any more,if the Mil lamp comes on you need to get it to a garage to plug in while the ignition is still on,with a 2005 Jaguar you need dedicated software to interogate it properly and diagnose whats wrong.the most common problem is a boost pressure deviation

Saab 900 auto with "Check gearbox" light

Hello. I had the same problem when the Check Gearbox light came on, it would be very sluggish. It turned out to be a small sensor in the transmission that lets the car know what gear it is in. It started to go out slowly and only sometimes would send the information.

GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE for jaguar s 2001

Replace transmission and sell quickly. I bought 2001 s-type in October 2008. I have not been able to drive it. 1st thing was gearbox fault message which turned out to be transmission. Ford can rebuild cheaper. Next thing to happen was all seals needed replacing. Then all coils needed to be replaced. Coils keep going out. Needs new computer which has 8 year/80000 mile warranty on, but Jag would not honor ($3000). Needless to say my pretty jag sits in the driveway. Had to get another car. Went with Lincoln LS V8. GREAT car!

Hi, if the ar was garaged over 6 years, then you must definitely add oil to the gearbox. probably there is none in it. Generally if you stop a RR Silver Shadow or , stop the car for some months, it will once you drove some km and stop again, lose about 0,5 liter of gear oil. That is the joint that is between engine and gearbox that gets dry. The problem will stop over about a week of usage.
