SOLUTION for x-type Transmission fault error
I had this very same problem. My 02 x-type would get transmission fault code and then shut down into limp mode. If I turned the key off, shifted gears a few times and waited I could start up again and sometimes drive for several miles before the code came back. GOOD NEWS, I thought maybe the vechicle was overheating the tranny or something like that and then after it cooled down I could drive some more. I discovered that my gas station had switched to the 10% ethanol addative about the same time I started experiencing "strange" mechanical issues. I decided to try switching my gas to the non-ethanol gas from a Phillips 66 station that advertised 100% REAL GAS. The problems mysteriously dissappeared!!!! Remember that you MUST use PREIUM gas as per the MFR. Well the 02 3.0 can't handle the 10%ethenol in it's gas. Something else you can try if you can't find REAL GAS is to use the OCTANE boost from your local auto parts store. Pay close attention to which brand you buy since some can harm your fule system. As a side note; I also own an 04 s-type with a 3.0 under the hood. It looks different from my 3.0 and has no problem running on the ethenol added gasoline. However after the horrible mechanical experience I had with the ethenol in the x-type, I now use 100% real gas in both. I have been transmission fault free for 5 months now.

SOURCE: 2005 jaguar xtype how do i adjust headlights

If I am understanding your post, I believe you do have a levelling
system and it should be near your light switch on the dash. It is
the type of switch that you depress first, it then springs out and
you turn the small knob (just like your instrument panel lights
adjuster next to it.) What you do not have perhaps, if your car is
not fitted with HIDs (high intensity headlamps), is the automatic
levelling system which is a legal requirement when HIDs are fitted
due to the high power of the lights....

if you don't have a self-levelling system then you'll have a manual
system, operated by a knob under the light switch so that you can
adjust to compensate for a heavy load in the rear of the car.

Testimonial: "I did see the little knob on the dash under the headlight switch. i thought it was to dim the dash lights i will check it out and let you know. "

How do i fix gearbox fault warning in a jaguar x type 2002, some times, the engine does not rev after starting and goes off on it's own.

you need to get the fault codes out of the tcm (transmission control module) to help sort that out but check the fluid level first. the jatco gearbox in that model year xtype auto are very unreliable

02 jaguar xtype automatic all whell drive,when i'm cruising in fift gear with a sudden accelaration,the rpm revesup and it souds like the car is not in gear but if i lock the shifer to 4th gear the...

When you're in fifth gear and lets say you hit the gas to pass a vehicle for instance your automatic transmission has a detent or a kickdown function which will lower it down a gear to give it more torque/hp for that range in order to pass. I would say that function is at fault. There are 2 ways this functions either by electrical or mechanical means.(mech. which would have a detent cable similar to shift linkage) yours is electrical. You would need to get this checked at a local transmission shop ask for an estimate first, since it's not slipping it won't be too bad. Avoid jaguar dealer at all costs they will screw you royally (I'm a jag owner and do my own repairs for that reason)
