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?
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
