Customer Question

2002 X-type 3.0 140K miles Intermittent hesitation/jerking. Seems to become more frequent as car is driven longer. But jerking can happen as soon as ten minutes into the drive.
JA: Are you fixing your X-Type yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No - I took it to my shop but they said they couldn't check trans fluid because there is no dipstick
JA: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?
Customer: I don't know- I bought the car 1 year ago.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: There is a check engine light for a Catalytic converter code- mechanic told me not to worry about it.

The computer should be tested again, but this time the TCM needs to be checked which is for the trans. He's right, you can't check fluid and the O2 sensor code won't cause this.

The scan of the TCM should show us better information though.

Thanks, Ron
