    what is the answer sent me telling me to do ?

  • alberman1 Jun 19, 2008

    this jag has "lifetime fluid" meaning there is no dip stick to check level. Nor is any fluid leaking on ground or bottom of trans mission. I STATED in orginal post that CHECK ENGINE LIGHT has a CODE 715 and 730 that translates to loose wire or shorted wire or solenoid. The answers I have received indicate little expertise on Jaguar system. Is there someone familiar with The described vehicle problem ?
    And could they assist me in trouble shooting the codes listed ?

If you have an idea how to do the checking..., It is better check the transmission for any leak, you may change & add more fluid into it. but if the problem goes on again, it was better to send it out into a mechanic...

The P0730 code is incorrect gear ratio, suspects are the wrong type of tires on the car or check to see if the transmission has enough oil.

The P0715 codes means Input Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction. this basically means that the pump is getting weak and causing the torque converter to slip

    stopping the engine allows the fluid to go back to the pan, restarting the engine causes it to go back into the torque converter and the transmission parts. it really sounds like you are low on fluid.

You better check the system programmed on your car.

    1. Check the transmission fluid level, if it's low, you have a leak & Look for fluids that have leaked on the ground below the transmission. Check the transmission case as well. Fluid can leak from seals, gaskets, fluid cooler and lines. Pinpoint the exact source of the leak to make proper repairs.

    2. Place a few drops of transmission fluid on a white paper towel. Red or light brown fluid that spreads easily over the towel is in good condition. Dark brown or black fluid that is gooey or thick fluid needs replacing to allow proper pressure and lubrication within the transmission.

    3. Replace the fluid filter to ensure it's in good working order. Check the old filter for metal shavings, which are a sign of wear and require a fluid flush.

    4. Look at your check engine light to verify it has not come on. If the check engine is on, take the car to a mechanic who can pull the code and pinpoint the problem. Electronic transmissions can detect even small faults in operation, and you may want to drive the car to verify that the problem was not a one-time or erroneous error.

    5. Seek the assistance of a professional if the car is no longer going into gear, slipping out of gear while driving or a substantial amount of fluid is leaking. Fixing a transmission problem on your car early can save you money and help keep you on the road for a long time to come.

Depends in the mileage since the transmission was last serviced. It sounds like low pressure from the pump. It could be just a filter. You did not say where the leaking seal is, but a leaking seal will not fix itself.

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.

Timing is going to be non-adjustable as far as the ignition is concerned. Are you refering to the timing chain? If so, this "should" be good for the life of the engine. If there is a performance issue, I can help diagnose it. Let me know and I will continue to help.

Will not go into gear


The problem can be the shift interlock. Automatic transmission require the driver to press on the brake to free the shifter.

When the brake switch (NOT BRAKE) malfunction, the interlock will not let you to move lever.

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.
