Jaguar X-Type X-Type 2003 Jaguar 2.5 L Transmission at times…

Customer Question
X-Type 2003 Jaguar 2.5 L Transmission...
X-Type 2003 Jaguar 2.5 L
Transmission at times gives a very very slight hasitation then shifts with a very slight jump into gear when I'm slowly accelerating from a stopped position. It isn't as smooth shifting as it used to be. It also does the same thing at about 15mph when I slowly accelerate, but slightly harder. When using the passing gear it has done the same thing, but slightly harder. It doesn't do it all the time and isn't as hard as you might maybe think, by my explanation, but I am concerned about it. Is it time for a major overhaul, or can it be corrected with a fluid change or possibly some minor adjustments? If it's major please give me a ballpark figure as to cost.

I'm still waiting for an answer to my question at 9:50 pm 8/12/11
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago

Sorry for the delay.

 

Your problem could be caused by a few things as the transmission was not very strong on the 2002-2003 X types. First the fluid level and condition should be checked. Since there is no dipstick this is not easily done. Since the TCM was replaced the adaptations are cleared and that may also be the cause. The vehicle will need to be driven so the new module can learn your driving style and set the transmission adaptations accordingly.

The TCM was replaced on June 6th. Wouldn't that be enough time for it to adjust to my driving style?

 

How is the fluid level checked?

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago

Yes it should unless we have a battery voltage problem cause by a weak battery. The fluid can be checked as follows.

 

Transmission Fluid Drain and Refill

  • Raise and support the vehicle
  • Place a suitable container under the transmission drain plug
  • Remove the transmission drain plug
  • Install the transmission drain plug; Tighten to 45 Nm
  • Lower the vehicle
  • Remove the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Use automatic transmission fluid WSS-M2C922-A1 or equivalent meeting Jaguar specification
  • Fill the automatic transmission with up to 8 litres of automatic transmission fluid through the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe
  • Carry out a fluid level check and adjustment

Transmission Fluid Level Check

  • Make sure J-Gate shift selector is in the Park position
  • With the engine running and the foot brake applied, move the J-Gate shift selector through ' P-R-N-D-4-3-2' and back to the ' P' position to circulate the automatic transmission fluid until the temperature reaches 30 to 40°C (86 to 104°F)
  • When the automatic transmission fluid temperature reaches 35°C (95°F) check that the selector lever is in the ' P' position raise the vehicle
  • With the engine running, remove the automatic transmission fluid level tube plug, Remove and discard the level plug and sealing washer
  • Use automatic transmission fluid WSS-M2C922-A1 or equivalent meeting Jaguar specification
  • If the automatic transmission fluid does not come out of the transmission fluid level tube the automatic transmission fluid level is insufficient. If this is the case add the automatic transmission fluid in 0.5 litre units into the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe until the automatic transmission fluid comes out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube
  • Remove the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Make sure the automatic transmission fluid temperature does not exceed 40°C (104°F). If the automatic transmission fluid temperature does exceed 40°C (104°F) stop the automatic transmission fluid level check and allow the automatic transmission fluid to cool until the temperature reaches 30 to 40°C (86 to 104°F).
  • Allow the automatic transmission fluid to come out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube until the overflow stops at a temperature of no more than 40°C (104°F).
  • If when the automatic transmission fluid level plug is first removed and automatic transmission fluid comes out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube, allow the automatic transmission fluid to come out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube until the overflow stops at a temperature of no more than 40°C (104°F).
  • Install the transmission fluid level plug, Install a new level plug and sealing washer, Tighten to 15 Nm
  • Install the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Lower the vehicle
