Check the fluid on your transmission dip stick. The engine should be running in 'park' to check the level. More important is the colour. The fluid should be red. If it is slightly brown and smells burnt it is a sign that one of the brake bands has been slipping causing wear, friction and therefore heat. If caramelized change the fluid and the (internal) transmission fluid filter. Consult with an auto transmission specialist who should be able to assess the state of the transmission from the debris trapped by the filter.

There is no gearbox dipstick fitted to this model car. it is the ford 5n box that is ''sealed for life'' If the box is still operating okay the fault may lie in another system and its symptoms could cause a gearbox warning. The best thing would to get the codes read and see what ''pending codes'' are stored along with the current meaning of the gearbox code registered in the system. A jaguar main dealer or specialist will have the equipment to access and read the stored history. hope this helps - good luck.

check the colour of the transmission oil. IT should be a bright cherry red . If not have it changed as that may be the burning smell.. Have a pressure test done to check for internal faults . Clean the oil filter and have a band and clutch pack adjustment done while the pan is off. Run fault codes as the fault may be from a bad TCM unit not allowing correct change times.

Jaguar s type 03 gearbox fault warning light on dashboard, gear stuck in 4, reverse engages ok, what could it be?


sounds like it is in get you home because of gearbox failure if its the early box with metal sump check selector cable adjustment it critical as the J gate micro switches and the linear switch on the side of the gearbox have to be in sync with each other. on the other hand if it is the later gearbox with plastic sump, which i suspect it will be, check it has not lost some of its oil due to leaking sump, common problem! other wise check fault codes in transmission control module, any codes relating to incorrect gear ratio means internal falure most times

Jaguar s-type gearbox fault when on motorway


Check under the driver side fuse box which below left of the steering wheel if there is any dampness then it s screwing the ecu,this could be due to a seal leak in the window or holes near the axle.ALso the transmission needs fluid to be change as most jag trans fluid need replacing before 75k, clearing the codes will clear the engine light which also improve the cars shifting.

Jaguar X SE 2.5 gearbox problem


hey johnhoile,

Sorry to break the bad new to you, put you most likely need a transmission depending on what codes are stored in the system. I have dont numerous automatic transmission on x-types all they all started with a gear box fault light on.

If the codes have something to do with a incorrect gear ration that is a guarantee red flag for a new transmission
