1994 XJ: oil changed..indicator..trans..shifting fine

I have a 1994 XJ...
I have a 1994 XJ 6 and transmission went into limp mode the other day, I had just had the oil changed and fluids checked the day before, and am wondering if a loosely returned level indicator for the trans could have caused the issue. thats all that I nocited, and now it is shifting fine, as it was before limp mode...any ideas?

Hello,Customer Thank you for using our service!

 

A loose dipstick should not affect transmission operation. More likely an air pocket was created when the trans was refilled at the shop, after the service. Once the air was gone and pressures returned to normal, the trans came out of 'limp' mode.

To be on the safe side, always follow Jaguar's rcommendation to check fluid level every 3000 miles, with fluid replacement every 24,000 miles.
