I bought a 2003 Jaguar S type, with the following problem. The car only has 64,000 miles, when i first test drove the car i did not notice this problem, but every once in a while after coming to a complete stop, it shifts hard into first gear and the harder I put down the accelerator from a dead stop the harder it jerks into first gear. The other gears shift normally and make a smooth transition. In your opinion would changing out the transmission fluid resolve this issue?

HelloYes we would first need to confirm fluid level and condition.Since there is no transmission oil dipstick this is not easily done.You also can have your local dealer or Jag specialist shop clear the transmission adaptions and reload software in the TCM which should hopefully correct the problem.Let me know.

Is clearing the transmission adaptions and reloading the TCM software only something the dealership could do or do other shops have this capability? I live in Tucson AZ, and I only know of one other place the specializes in British cars. I have the car up on jacks now and I don't see any leaks around the transmission. I was at the dealer today and priced the trans fluid that came out to about $350.00, is there another way to get the trans fluid without going through the dealer?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Unfortunately I am unavailable for a phone call at the moment but we can continue here til then.Yes the fluid is expensive but you can source it from other places like a land rover or Audi dealer as well as parts stores. The fluid is a shell m1375.4. I do not recommend mixing with any other fluid.The jag took or equivalent is the only one to reset and reprogram the TCM.

Thanks, ***** ***** dealer is the same as the Jag dealer, any idea what the dealer will charge to clear the transmission adaptions and reload software in the TCM?I think this is the next step before opening up the transmission
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Most dealers will charge about a one hour labor fee.

Thanks Richard, I just called the dealer but they were all busy but said they would give me a call back this afternoon. Is there a way I can contact you with the results after they clear the transmission adaptions and reload the software without having to pay again?
