Jaguar: Ive got a x type V6 SE Auto 2.5 petrol 2002, Ive..gears…

Customer Question
hello, i need some advice...
hello, i need some advice on the best course of action to take with my jaguar please. Ive got a x type V6 SE Auto 2.5 petrol 2002, Ive got a transmission problem, the gearbos makes a whiring noise as its moving through the gears and it gets more high pitched as it moves up through them. The engine management fault light comes on bot then goes out and occasionaly on the gigital display the text will read gearbox fault. After coming out of cruise control through some road works doing 50mph on accelerating the transmission made a big clunk noise and all power to drive was lost, but after being recovered from the motorway the car was able to drice back on to the drice again?? I havnt driven it since and this was almost three months ago. What do you think the problem is and what are my options?? Cheers, Dan.

I would start by having a look at the oil in the transfer box. If it has any metallic contents at all, than I would start there. They fail often, and cause transmission complaints. The JATCO transmission was not a very robust transmission though. In my experience though those transmission just stop working completely, and usually reverse or first gear goes first.
