SOURCE: 99 Jag xj8l stopped shifting low gears, only goes in high gear.

You will need to have your tranny rebuilt or get a replacement. As a mechanic myslef, I have seen this a few times in the Jag XJ series. Those people eneded up having tranny replaced as well.

sounds like the governer is sticking. You could do a trans fluid service and hopefully get lucky but most likely the trans will need to be opened tio fix this.

SOURCE: 1998 Jag xj8l lost reverse,

There is no dipstick on your tranmission. There is a fill plug that needs to be removed to check the level once the trans fluid temp reaches 30-40 degrees C. When the fluid is full it will drip out of that fill plug. The fill plug is the 8mm hex on the passenger rear of the trans case.

My 1995 buick lesabre electronic transmission- it shifts at the wrong speeds and sometimes will not shift into high gear on the highway, but sometimes it will work. and sometimes it loses gear on th

First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

Hard shfit into reverse, and no light on gear indicator

I was about to say rebuild it

You need to stop using i say as a former
trans shop owner & hope the damage isn't
done already

You have solenoid issues every where
Delayed reverse
Torque Converter Chatter
Delayed Shifts

Hope the trans was built correctly
Now you need to diagnose the ENTIRE
cars systems,all of them

You have no real shift strategy at all

May be a sensor you don't see associated with
the trans

I can't guess,just spoke my mind

X type will not reverse

Check your trans fluid. Look in the Owner's Manual to see if you have the shift interlock override/bypass button available. This allows the shift lever to be moved w/out pushing the brake pedal.

If it moves w/the shift interlock disengaged, it's likely an issue w/the shifter - not the transmission, but since it's a Jag....well, you're probably going to have to sell a kidney!GL,Td

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.

On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

If I understand you correctly, you have ALL forward gears working, but reverse doesn't?... then the problem is in the transmission itself or the linkage on the trans linkage into reverse.

Tranny in my 1998 jeep wrangler takes off in second gear from dead stop if i punch it it will kick into drive it shifts fine after you start to move

The trans in your vehicle is a 3 speed auto,A904 model,also designated the 30RH or32RH.The trans is totally hydraulic,no electronic controls with the exception of tcc apply,aka,lockup.The vehicle shifts from throttle pressure and a governor.The governor is inside the tailhousing of the trans and is responsible for the road speed signal in this trans.If the valves in the governor start sticking,the vehicle will take off in 2nd gear.The valves can be cleaned,and sometimes jarred loose,but the more pressing concern is why are the valves sticking?The valves will start sticking when other parts of the trans starts making metal.So the governor sticking can sometimes be the symptom of a larger problem.Pull the trans pan and look for metal,and if so, how bad?One way to clear the governor of debris is to find an abandoned road or parking lot.At a complete stop,engage Reverse gear,and back up as fast as you dare.I have backed cars up at 20-30 mph before,but wouldn't recommend you to.This can blow debris out of the governor hydraulic circuits,and free the governor valves as highest line pressure inside the trans is obtained in Reverse gear.Good luck.

No reverse sometimes geo metro a/t

The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.
