Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

What is the problem with the transmission? Were you given an estimate of the repair cost from a shop or dealer? If so what kind of diagnosis was done?

Richard,
The problem: For a period two weeks I have noticed twice that very rarely the car would not accelerate when driving at 45-55mph speeds, but would suddenly regain everything back to normal. After about a month suddenly one day when I started the car, it would drive forward but would not shift beyond the first gear; after a while it stopped moving forward and would only reverse.
So far I have shown it to the dealer and aamco. Dealer says to replace the tranny; didnt give much info. AAMCO would not say anything until they opened it up. Right now I have two options; one is to take it to an independent mechanic who said he can do it for 3200 bucks (max); he thinks that this tranny is similar to ford's. Option two is to risk high cost and give it to a local AAMCO dealer who said it can cost me anywhere from 3000 to 5500 bucks. A third mechanic (who seemed to do diligent research on this problem) said that it would cost him between 4200 and 6k, depending on what parts he needs to order from Jag.

Ok it is definately a mechanicla problem in the transmisison. At my dealer this job would cost about $5800.00 parts and labor. This is installing a Jaguar reman unit. There are non Jaguar reman units which will be slightly cheaper. The price of $3200.00 may be for a used transmission. Which ever way you go find out what the warranty is on the repair. The Jag unit is warrantied for one year unlimited mileage. Also make sure that the warranty will cover both the part cost as well as the labor costs.
