Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

When my 2003 Jaguar X type 2.0 Diesel manual is cold it is very difficult to get into gear, particularly reverse. Is it possible to adjust the clutch so that it opens with a little less depression of the pedal?

    sounds like you have wrong oil in gearbox, once the heavy oil heats up it thins and allows your g/box synchros to work as they should, experienced this with other cars and changed to a slightly lighter oil but still within spec

Why is it difficult to get x-type into reverse. It is a manual 5 speed., 2004 Jag


Most common cause is a worn clutch ,but obvious your american and not used to manual gearboxes as their is a knack for this and that is lift clutch a bit as you pull it into reverse or if the fault is in the gearbox stop the engine put in reverse and restart engine ,also select reverse more slowly ,ever seen inside a gearbox and how the reverse works ? lots of extreme pressure on the changing mechanism .

A few things can cause your symptoms. Check the slave cylinder, see if the res. is full, any leaks, or if the pedal changes if you pump it. If it checks out then you may need a new pilot bearing, throw-out bearing, and/or clutch assembly.

Volvo v70 2.4 2002 manual. When cold its difficult to engage 1st gear


#1. Try putting in second gear, then go to first.   #2 Try putting it in reverse, come off the clutch just enough to move the car slightly, then put into first.
Let us know if either of these work or not.
