Just below 6000 rpm on mine... also.. I could also only find 5 gears... its very easy to go through 2 gears instead of one. The other gears are there, just be gentle with the change lever and you should be fine.

If you still cant find them, put the bike on its centre stand and rotate the back wheel manually and change the gears by hand ...you should find em all.

All the best.

That is a typical RPM at that speed for most 6-speed 4 cylinder engines. The reason for this is that they have a much lower power output at lower RPMs (due to lack of torque), and the engineers want for you to have SOME acceleration to get up little hills.

Its a 2005 mk5 golf 1900 tdi when you get up to 70mph you get a massive vibration from the front of the car its worse if you dip the clutch ive removed the gearbox had it stripped and tested o.k,ive...


if it were engine/gearbox you would feel the vibration at a specific rev range (say 3000 to 3500)but you say that when you put your foot on the clutch it gets worse....at 70 mph....so look for something from the tyres,wheels,bearings,rotors,drive shafts,
the first thing is to have the wheels dynamically balanced(up/down/sideways)then check bearings......,going up in cost,always start with the cheapest parts as these tend to go quicker.

Dear kev4,

The problem seems to be originating from your gearbox. The gear box has two main components that convert the torque of the engine to the tailshaft; the 'torque converter' and the 'bands' within the gearbox. If at higher rpm the car starts to rev higher and slow down then it would suggest that one of these two components are slipping or not functioning correctly.

To fix this problem you will have to take your car to a gearbox specialist who with either reccomend a replacement gearbox, a overhaul of the orriginal gearbox or if you get lucky a new torque converter. Unfortunately this car be a costly opperation but is quite important in reguards to the life of the vehicle.

Reguards luke.

Jaguar X SE 2.5 gearbox problem


hey johnhoile,

Sorry to break the bad new to you, put you most likely need a transmission depending on what codes are stored in the system. I have dont numerous automatic transmission on x-types all they all started with a gear box fault light on.

If the codes have something to do with a incorrect gear ration that is a guarantee red flag for a new transmission

Grand CherokeeTransmission needs high engine revs to work


Hi Ghecham,
I have done some research and it sounds more like the torque convertor may be the problem,As the speed sensor would affect the whole speed range and not just the range under 3500rpm's
I will continue to check on other possible causes while you are having the other parts replaced.

Thanks again
