I will assume the dealership checked the fluid level, and speed sensor. That being said, you will need a new trans.

Advise Trans or engine problem ?

This is more than likely in your transmission, if your engine revved to 4000rpm and your speed did not increase. Is this a manual or automatic transmission. If the vehicle is newer, within the last 10 years, you could probably have the controller for the transmission plugged in and get the codes for the problem.

get a rebuilt or used transmission. Jaguar says you don't have to change trans fluid because it should last the "life of the trans" which means it will die just like everything else. Fluid change will do no good. I just went thru this.

In your owners manual there is a phone number to file a complaint to the corporation. Do that first of all. I owned a Hyundai that did very strange things although I had strange braking problems which was repaired at a shop of my preference and was reimbursed.

Clunking when car shifts!!

Take the car to a transmission specialist and check the engine mounts and then the transmission. It sounds very much like you have a transmission fault. if the trans requires rebuilding it could be as much as $1500.00 lets hope its external to the trans, but do not leave it get it checked.
