Customer Question

I have just bought an 02 Jag X - Type 3.0 V6 Auto, 87,000 miles for £900. The Auto box will only take me down the road in 2nd gear - and only if selected manually. If I start off in Drive, after a few hundred yards the engine is no longer driving the wheels!
Any ideas?
Many thanks,
Steve Glenn

Hello and welcome to

Is there a gearbox fault warning on? Is the shifter illuminating what gear you are in?
