my father has a 2002 x-type and was told by the jaguar dealer here that the transmission required NO routine maintenance as the lubricants and materials used were designed to last the entire life of the car.
i have not been able to find any official statements to confirm or deny this, and can only advise as we were advised by the dealership

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

2003 Jaguar x-type automatically jumps to fourth gear and stays,what can I do?

if the car is jumping shift points you have a transmission control module issue..You must have the module reprogrammed...If you havent serviced the ****** over 30k miles past you may want to have the fluid flushed and cleaned because most failure comes from dirty fliud which leads to overheating inside the ******,so when you give your car gas the ecm tell the tcm to shift as needed. ..

Goes into fail-safe mode with no power. S-type Jaguar

Common tranny problem. This is also known as the "limp home mode". Turn the ignition off for 15 seconds, and turn the car back on. It should kick in normal mode again. The cause is electrical. The system shares the ground with all the engine sensors and a fault with them will cause this problem. Most commonly the coils and spark plugs. DON'T take it to the dealer. The only thing they know how to do is replace the tranny for $5k or more and the problem comes back. When at all possible, get your tranny flushed every 35K miles to keep it working strong. Its a sealed tranny and does not allow for regular checks like an other cars. Ive worked on them in my shop and own an X type with the same problem as yourself with is now fixed. So get the coils checked/replaced, replace the plugs (double platinum autolite works great), and clean all your negative ground wires. This will resolve your issues.

Does a jaguar gearbox fault indicate transmission fluid needs to be changed or that it is low?

it doesnt indicate that it needs a tranny flush thats for sure ,could need topping up though ,try disconnecting the battery both terminals and joining them together for a few minutes to see if it clears the fault ,if it but light comes on when driven then return vehicle to a jaguar dealer as it could be a computer fault and the software is encrypted so its a dealer only diagnostic machine ,Sorry to disappoint you here with no quick and easy answer ,The best models of this car are the diesel turbo with manual transmission ,now these cars do hold their value here in spain

Car hesitate in low gear

I own a 2000 model myself, what ever you do do not do a transmission flush, it forces parts to be misaligned causing more damage than good. take to a mechanic and pull the trans pan replace the filter and let drain the old fashion way. inside the pan is a magnet if its coverd in large metal particles the end product may be a tranny rebuild.

Transmission is beginning to slip

Try having the transmission serviced with a new filter and have a cleaner run through it and flushed with new fluid. Have them put a transmission additive to help with the shifting and see if this helps. If this does not help will probably have to have the tranny overhauled.
