Jaguar X type: Hi Richard, my 2003 Jaguar X type is shifting…

Hi Richard, my 2003 Jaguar...
Hi Richard, my 2003 Jaguar X type is shifting a little erratically. There are no lights or codes flashing but it's clear something is not right. Sometimes it shifts smoothly and other times it will get squirrelly. I have an appointment tomorrow to have a jaguar mechanic look at it. I was wondering if you think the whole thing is destroyed or could it be something manageable. My question is: is it possible it just needs to be flushed or is it probably in need of replacement?

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

How many miles on your vehicle? Did you start feeling this all of a sudden? How exactly is the transmission shifting?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Sometimes it runs through smooth. When it's acting up its seems like it's not switching gears fast enough and sometimes itt feels like when I'm stopping it shifts down with a jerk. It has 94000 on it. I just bought it last week. There were no engine lights and it seemed ok and my mechanic who I took w me said it probably wasn't major.. I'm pretty stressed out thinking the whole unit is shot..

Hey, are you still there? I'm using my iPhone to send these. I accidentally hit the reply button a few times without writing anything. If your still thinking or weiting an answer that's cool. Just making sure we re still connected

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 8 years ago
OK I can tell you that I do see some issues with these transmissions at higher mileage. The first step would be to have the transmission fluid level checked. Since there is no dipstick the shop/dealer will need to do this for. If you go to the dealer they should be able to perform a full system scan and clear the TCM memory to see if the shifting improves. If no faults are stored then this is usually a mechanical failure.

By no faults stored, do you mean there are no faults reading when the mechanic scans the sytem?

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 8 years ago
Yes. An advanced scan tool will be needed to read the faults in all modules.
