Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L

1 Answer

Transmission Fault I have had some trouble with my transmission - at first it drove fine only in the "sport mode" position - if it wasn't in the sports mode, you would hear grinding. I just rode it like that for about 12,000 miles, and now it finally gave out. It is in its safe limp home mode of 5th gear, and I still have a reverse and park that work. I have heard it might only be the tork converter in the transmission, but is it possible I need a new one all together? I love my car and don't want to send it to the junk yard or leave it in the yard as an expensive yard decoration - any suggestions? Help! Tammy

You can get a rebuilt transmission, including repair it will cost you about $3-4k. I had the same done to mine.

Why is the sport mode light flashing on my 2000 Cadillac Catera?


Sport Mode Indicator Lamp and Automatic Transmission Warning Lamp (STL)
The sport mode indicator lamp illuminates when the vehicle has been put into the sport mode by pressing the "S" button on the gear selector. When this lamp is illuminated the vehicle will have slightly firmer shifts and increased performance for part and full throttle situations.
This lamp will also flash when there may be a problem with the automatic transmission. The transmission control module (TCM) performs a continual self diagnosis of certain control functions. The lamp will flash only when an error is detected. The TCM will store in memory a current and/or history trouble code when a problem is detected. I'd have it checked out !

Hyundai automatic, sport mode not working


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

Probably need a second opinion that you can use in court.
Hope you got a bill and have proof you paid the money you paid.
Someone should be able to pull trouble codes for a starting point.
Its possible the transmission was not the original problem.

What is the function of the button near the auto transmission gear with writing c and s


It stands for "Sport" and Comfort", it changes the way the transmission shifts. Read a more detailed description below.

In C, the transmission starts from a stop in 2nd gear unless the kick down switch is activated (pedal to floor from standing start). The transmission will shift at lower RPM's. This is used for everyday driving. The S mode will cause the transmission to start in 1st gear regardless of pedal position and shift at higher rpm. This button has NO effect on suspension, Mercedes have separate suspension control switches.
If this helped please rate my help.

Just scanned my 1999 300m. It went into safe mode while me wife was driving it home- 2nd gear only. It had a code P1714 and P0700 come up on the scanner. I can't find anything about the P1714.

The green (S) Light on the instrument panel comes on (and remains on). What is that for? What is the solution, if any? Thanks


this indicates the transmission is operating in "sport" mode. there is a switch to the rear of the transmission shift lever on the center console. depress the switch to take the transmission out of sport mode and the "s" on the dash will disappear. Press again it will reappear. Sport mode will operate the transmission in a sportier feeling shift pattern and will use more fuel. The switch is labeled "mode". It frequently gets depressed when I lay things in the console.

Transmission trouble. fluid looks fine. absolute


It sounds like you might have blown an axle. Especially if there has never been any transmission problems before. You said the fluid looks fine, and by that I take it to mean the fluid is clean and red, and its full. A blown axle will make the click noise, as the splines on the end of the axle are trying to mesh with the splines inside the transmission. The problem could be in the trans., but I'd pull the axles out first and check them, as axles are a lot cheaper and easier to change than a transmission.
