XJ8: that has a new throttle body..fault code..slipping..low speeds…

Customer Question
I have an XJ8 ('04)...
I have an XJ8 ('04) that has a new throttle body. Recently I've experience fault code P0782 and noticed slipping at low speeds. Car has 113K miles. I planned to have transmission flushed and new fluid added. Do you think I should have the TCM reprogrammed? How likely is that I need to have the ZF6 replaced?

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

The first step would be to have the TCM adaptations reset and the TCM reprogrammed. If the code and/or symptoms return then yes the unit will either need to be reconditioned or replaced.
