There's a plug in the pan with a about a two inch tube inside the pan when the level get's to the top of the tube it runs out. I know dumb idea but if you have to fill it you need to force fluid up through the hole with a syphon gun.

I have a 2000 Jaguar S Series that won't disingage from park to any gear??? Car runs won't come out of gear ???

Check the obvious first. Is the fluid in the transmission at the correct level and the correct type for the car? Does it smell burnt ? Move on to the mechanicals. Is the linkage that controls the transmission operating? On to the electricals. Do all the connections to the transmission seem intact? Any missing connections? Burnt wires? If all the above appear to be correct then the trouble lies inside the transmission.

How do i fill my transmission fluid in a a 99 jaguar xj8

There is no fill tube on either the 5HP24 (1996-2002) or 6HP26 (2003-2006) transmissions. They are both "sealed for death". By changing your transmission fluid you will prolong the life of the transmission. Jaguar only offered a 50,000 mile warranty, so they stand to benefit if your transmission conks out at 90,000 miles. The car has to be up on a lift (or at least on 4 tall jack stands) to check the fluid level or to add more fluid. Plus, the engine has to be running. You check the fluid level from the fill plug, and the plug is right next to the exhaust pipe which gets very hot. If you turn off the engine during the procedure, about 5 liters of fluid will drain out of the fill plug. Here's a video which shows the process for changing the fluid and pan on a 2003 transmission. The procedure is essentially the same for the 2002 and earlier cars, but there are some slight differences in the transmission internally.

How do you check-add transmission fluid?

Apparently, there is no dip stick on Jag S-type. It sounds like there may be a "level" plug in the drain plug underneath, and a fill plug in the side of the transmission. Some additional clues at:
It sounds like it could be a little complicated. You may want to call a dealer or shop for a quote to check the level?

How do I top up the transmission fluid on an S Type Jaguar Registration Year 2000

Hi, to check the fluid, first raise the car and level. On the rear of the trans next to the driveshaft there is a hex plug (5/16" allen head). Remove the plug when the transmission is warm and running in park. Fill the trans with Mercon V until it runs out, then re-install the plug. On my 2002 s type it has the instructions imprinted in the rear of the trans next to the fill port.

Where do you put in transmission fluid

on that car you most likely need to get under the car and remove a plug from the trans itself to fill it. Remember to have the engine running when you fill and check the level.

Adding transmission fluid to 2001 jaguar s-type

On a 2000 s-type 4.0 There is a combination drain plus check valve on the bottom of the Pan and a fill hole on the back right side. Use WD-40 to help free up the allen-screw in the middle of the drain plug. Hold the drain screw while opening the level checking screw. If it is full, a small amount may run out. If light red fluid runs out it's OK. If brown, You got a problem. It uses special fluid! Take it to have it done in a Jaguar service facility. Or educate yourself on how to do it.
