Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Does the transmission fault message also come on? Can you supply me with the last six digits of your VIN?

Customer reply replied 11 years ago
A fault message does not appear for the transmission. the last six are M39260
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago
Ok first the transmission issue may be as simple as a stretched or out of adjustment cable for the delayed engagement. There was also a PCM reprogram and a trans adaption reset for the delayed engagement. The fault code is for the variable valve timing. We should first check the oil level and condition. There is also a PCM reprogram for this code so the update along with the cable may repair both problems.
