Having problems with your 2001 Jaguar XJ ?

Transmission A warning light turned on that read: "Transmission Failure". The car then slowed down to a crawl . . . just enough for my wife to drive it to the drive-way. The car had just comepleted a 350 mile roadtrip a day earlier, although it barely has 47,000 miles. Prior to the trip it was serviced by Jaguar. Any suggestions on the problem and whether it is major?

The transmissions in these have several electronic components that can fail and cause this problem. My best advice is to take it to a transmission shop in your area and have them run a diagnostics. If you have an AAmaco in your area, I know that they will diagnose it, tell you the problem, and give an estimate for free.

98 Mercury Mystique. The transmission shifts from 1st to 3rd and will not go into overdrive. This is the second transmission with exactly the same problem. I had a junkyard transmission put in the car 75 days ago. The newer transmission was working fine, shifting through all the gears till yesterday when this condition started while I was driving. There was no particular warning, although the car started stuttering several weeks ago. The stutter feels more like an engine problem and I don't thin

Had clutch on 2002 saturn replaced earlier this year. Was driving down hwy. when car refused to go any further. the engine was running fine, but screeching sound coming from tranny. What happened? Used car earlier in day and all was fine. Do I need to replace the manual transmission at this point?

2005 Isuzu Ascender: white smoke from exhaust on start up. Runs for 5-10 minutes and oil pressure drops to 0. Drives for 5-10 minutes, oil pressure drops and car shuts off. We have had nothing but major issues with this vehicle since we purchased it brand new. First, cylinder 6 misfired - dealership replaced cylinder; next the transmission went (we have never towed with it, although it says we can) - dealer replaced transmission. Now this problem.


You might kill the engine because you run the engine with no oil pressure. need to strip the engine. might jammed all the bearing. ... 2005 Isuzu Ascender

I have a 2003 Passat with 109k miles on it, automatic tiptronic with 4 motion transmission. I noticed the other day all of a sudden it started hesitating when shifting from 2-3 and 3-4, and it occasionally 'jumps' a bit when at idle in drive. Is the transmission doomed to be replaced (which exceeds the value of the car's worth at this point), or have others experienced this with a more reasonable fix? I literally just need this car to get me through 77 more days...


Did you ever find an answer to this problem? I am interested because I also have a 2003 V6 4-Motion Passat and am having similar issues. I only have 86,000 miles on it, but I'm sure if I have to end up replacing the transmission it would not be worth ... 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Transmission "drops" For the routine maintance on our 2000 LeSabre we had our transmission fluid changed (at scheduled time). Several days later I notice when I reached 45 mph I could feel the transmission "drop" into gear. When I took it back, the problem would not repeat. My father thought it was just me, until he was driving and the car it did the same with him. If the car was shut off, what ever the problem, it would "reset" itself and the transmission would do fine. This worked for a while,

2001 honda civic lx - car slipped out of drive and would not accelerate in drive. shifted to lower gear (D3) and it ran fine. next day and ever since it has ran fine in Drive. Check engine light is on with P0730 or p0750 error code. " Gear ration Incorrect" is what the code says. I ould guess it is something with the Transmission since the check engine light came on immediately when the car would not go in drive. What needs to be checked first?

My 97 Ford Taurus is having automatic transmission problems. reverse works perfect, but after taking off the engine revs up & takes a while to shift, then it drives fine until i have to stop. The other day after taking off from a stop light the car wouldn't go over 20-25mph. I pulled over put it in park & it still did the same thing. What can I do? Do I need a new transmission? I have had the car 3 yrs & never did a transmission service.

For the past 4 days, my 91 4-runner idles rough and vibrates. yesterday the check engine light came on. there is transmission fluid, oil, brake fluid, and steering fluid. I allow my vehicle to warm up before driving, but even then it feels like the vehicle takes its time shifting into gear. sometimes when I'm driving, it feels like the car revs high or is driving one gear too low. When I stop, it sometimes feels like my car is grinding in the rear.
