I have a different problem, my Jaguar shifts fine at first, once warm it will only go in reverse. Any ideas of what this could be?

Asked by Sep 04, 2013 at 09:47 AM about the 1998 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

98' Jaguar XJ8, at first it's fine once it warms up the car will only go into reverse. The engine has been rebuilt so I was wondering if maybe something may not have been connected properly at that time or if this is a common problem.

I have a 98. A Drum in transmission is known to ail high miles. mine failed at 117K mile. similar symptoms as you stated. Had to rebuild transmission. Good luck

Thanks, I was hoping it would be something simple, guess it's time to start pricing a new transmission.

Go for a rebuild -half the price . This car has transmission manufactured by ZF, a German company. Easy to get parts
