2004 jaguar xj8 when...

2004 jaguar xj8 when I put it in drive doesn't want to drive off have to push pedal harder to move off

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XJ8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet I was going to use a mechatronic out the same year jag but not sure it will work since the solenoids seem to be a different colour

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Can you replace the solenoids and the bridge seal

Transmission fault code stays on even when you shut vehicle off and restart. Prior to the code staying on I was able to drive the by putting it in reverse then back into drive and then drive off slowly and it seemed to do the trick seemed like a pressure issue so after driving that day park the car over and woke up to the transmission fault code staying on I haven't driven the car sinceI would but it is 9:02 pm in.West palm Beach florida

Ok this could very well be a transmission problem like the TCM/valve body but it could also be an engine management problem like an issue with the electronic throttle.

Since the fault warning is on we need a Jag compatible scan tool to read the current fault codes. We can try using a generic OBD II scan tool to see if any faults are stored in the ECM.

Let me know.
