I have a Jag x type 02 with 37,000 miles. I was driving 15 mph approaching an intersection when the car banged and bucked very abruptly. The force was similar to riding over a railroad crossing at a high rate of speed. The car continued to buck and bangto a stop. I was towed into the dealership. They have not been able to duplicate these symptoms and suggest I take the car, drive it until it happens again. I do not feel comfortable doing this. Can you suggest any solutuins? The diagnostic equipment does not seem to find anything.

Re: Gear box fault warning on dash with symptoms
This could be a cv-joint issue. but i would lean toward the gear box. it divides the power to the front and rear of the car. if it somehow became locked up and could not correct for different speeds at the fron and rear (for instance while turning) this this type of issue may occour. I have heard of this issue before and they replaced the gearbox... no issue since. but then again it may have been an isolated issue.

listen look under the steering wheel it should be to the left side panel its a small box color grey metal disconnect it also disconnect the battery for 15 minutes connect the battery and connect the gear box it should clear codes if not turn your switch off an on 3 times or 4 u will hear a chim sound that means u reset the gear box if that doesnt work GET YOURSEL A FING NEW GEAR BOX HAHHAAHAHAHA STRAIGHT UP DUDE
not exactly,but you need to have the code read that making the fault display...Normally if the car starts jerking u have a tcm issue.This can be caused be several things,but first check the code and let me know what its saying,Does it drive any different?Make sure you get the ****** flused at 30-40k miles its about 300 bucks.Keep me posted
jaguar x-type 2ltr diesel 2004 the glow plug warning light flashing, was told dirty fuel on fault code all fuel changed and filters. No problems for 20 miles untill engine was put under power on high revs went into limp mode, warning light glow plug falshing again? any ideas thanks.
I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.
It sounds like your Throttle Position Sensor (TPS); located in the throttle body. (Diagnositic test may point to alternator or TPS; I experienced the same issue and although replacing an alternator is easier on the pocket book, it doesn't correct the problem; which will get worse.)
(My story) The amber transmission light would pop up; after a restart, it'd go off. Eventually this led into the engine dropping into safety mode (15-20 mph); while driving city/highway without fail everytime; inbetween driving distance became less and less. (prior to this I had taken my car in several times; each time they reset the computer and $$replaced my alternator, as suggested by my mechanic).
As soon as I drove it off the shop to my house, it dropped into safety mode; amber warning lights. Drove it back to the shop; had to replace the throttle body (the only way to replace a bad TPS). It can co$t anywhere from: $1700.00-$2,000.00 parts and labor. Shop around; because my shop diagnosed the problem part wrong, I got a deal (but it still cost me...). Since I had it replaced (April 2008), I haven't had a problem since. Jag Heaven (a parts company located in California) can ship parts anywhere; it was cheaper to do this than buy the part from my shop $aved $$$. Good Luck, hope this helps...
