Shifts hard from 1st to 2nd if throttle too heavy. Somerimes throws a hearbox fault code and will not shift above. Shut off engine and restart will allow normal operationSometimes 5th to 6th same but much more rare.If i leave transmission in performance mode is less likely to happen. If i use very light throttle through second i can then drive normalSorru. Gearbox fault. Cantvfc remember the code numberI have been researching this for a long time. If you are unfamilliar with this issue you have some catching up to do. Hoping to find someone who has found the solution. Every thread i read is same situation and never answer back when they figure it iut

If the guy that sold it to you wasn't a gear box specialist the fault will still be with the solenoids as they are doing all the work and found that people are not using new parts or cleaning the valve body's out properly. It actually might even need the valve body replacing DIY on these boxes doesn't usually work to well. Regards Ian

It was done at a Jaguar Dealership. Only reason I know about it was because was on the carfax. problem was not solvedI believe the valve body was replaced

Hi would need the code to be more specific to the fault and I appreciate its been done at the dealer but the symptoms relate to repairs already done. Are you able to get the code please regards Ian.
