Customer Question

2003 jag s type 3.0 auto...seems a lot of slack all f a sudden in trans...stop at light and it bangs into gear when I start to move again..as well as when kind of running between gears it makes funny noise...feels like a valve or pressure problem...o nly started doing this after a big snow fall and icy roads where the traction lock would go in and out

First we need to have the fluid level and condition checked. Since there is no dipstick this is not easily done as a fill / level plug needs to removed with the fluid warmed, engine running and vehicle on a level surface or lift. The fluid pan or cooler pipes may have developed a leak and the fluid is low. For the brake fluid we should also have the brakes checked. The fluid reservoir for the brakes is in the driver rear of the engine compartment. Let me know.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

There also were some factory service bulletins on it, which was why I needed the VIN. However, it seems that Richard may have answered the question, thanks and please come again, anytime.
