2002 Jaguar S Type: my transmission..engine rev..gears engage…

Customer Question
I have a 2002 Jaguar...
I have a 2002 Jaguar S Type, 3.0 and I'm experiencing shifting problems in my transmission. The problem occurs when I'm at a complete stop. As I accellerate, there is a second when the engine rev up and the gears engage. Also, when I'm on a slight hill, the same exact problem occurs.

Has the gear box fault warning ever come on again? DO you have any issues when engaging drive or reverse?

Customer reply replied 11 years ago
No the gearbox fault never came back on. Engaging gears and reverse opeates fine. just the initial acceleration, there is a split two second delay as pressure build up to engage the first gear. Again, this occurance exist during hot temperaature days. vehicle operates fine otherwise. just returned from a 300 mile trip. had only one issue when I can to a stop on a hill and there was a teo second delaay before the first gear engaged
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago
Ok unfortunately this does sound like a mechanical failure as the units in the 2000-2002 S types are pretty weak and do not seem to hold up. There have been issues with the valve body, aluminum case where the servos go into, as well as the hard parts inside. I think you are looking at a replacement or a rebuild.
