Your car has no transmission dip stick, you will have to have the dealer service the trans, it requires special tools to fill trans.

The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid type and level

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 2001 jaguar s-type

This is a ''filled for life box'' there is no recognised user fill point. But at 2-0-clock looking from the rear of the gearbox is a fill/inspection plug for jaguar service use only, I believe there is a secondary screw in the middle of this plug which is the fluid level. I have never checked this plug for level so proceed with caution.
Why do you need to check level ?

2003 Jaguar x-type transmission problem

if it is a jatco 5 speed box it needs rebuilding or replacing. rubbish gearbox, but double check selector cable adjustment first.try using a fault code reader to check dtc codes in the tcm,[transmission control module] was the fluid clean that you drained out? or did it look dark instead of crimson and smell burnt? did you check the level with the fluid temp between 30c and 50c the correct procedure if not followed and you get it wrong can make a big difference to gearbox performance, but it sounds like the box is on its way out have.worked on these cars since day one.

Does a 2003 x type auto trans need to be flushed or is it a sealed trans

There are no sealed transmissions

All transmissions have a drain & fill

You can have it flushed,but I would never
allow anyone to disconnect any trans lines,
to do so, you chance dibris from flushing to cause
harm to transmission

If you have not changed trans & power steering fluids
on all your vehicles every 3 years, your almost sure to
have a failure at some point in time

There is lots on checking & filling- on the internet- if you
google the question & I expect You Tube Video will
show you how

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.

My car says tramission fault

Could be fluid, pressure, electrical or mechanical.

When fluid low and you brake hard or accelerate hard, fluid runs away from oil pick up and air enters system. This allows clutches to slip and weak band apply pressures.

In any case you need a shop or dealer to scan the transmission module to pull the codes.

Many case this is water in the electrical connections to the transmission under the car.

Pull up rear floor carpet and trunk covering...check for water. Common problem with Jaguar.

2003 Jaguar s-type Transmission fault car wont move

First off check the battery. Try and jump start it. If that does not get the vehicle running you may have a problem with your J gate as it will not start unless in park or neutral. If an internal electrical fault has happened then the micro swith may not send a signal to the ecu to allow the car to start. the J gate is the gear selector by the way
