Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8
I have a 1999 Jag XJ8L 102000 miles. Car was running fine. While driving it shifted with a loud thud and it lost low gears. Able to drive,but it was in high gear. Had transmission service done at 80000 and new cooling lines installed. Only thing, I replace one of the lines with a new rubber hose and a hose clamp. thinking that it had low pressure while driving. Reverse works OK, It's when you try driving in normal mode that it will not shift through the gears, will limp in high gear. Is it possible that a small leak from the hose clamp may have drained some of the fluid? Or, like my mechanic tells me, I need a new transmission?
You will need to have your tranny rebuilt or get a replacement. As a mechanic myslef, I have seen this a few times in the Jag XJ series. Those people eneded up having tranny replaced as well.
