Having problems with your Jaguar XJ6 ?

Where do you add trans fluid and how do you know when it is full

Answers :

Dipstick tube on the right hand side rear of engine, near the bulkhead. Just dip it like you would the engine. And the nice tricky bit, you need to put hte fluid down that little tube! A real pain, use a small funnel and be patient. DO NOT overfill - this can be very bad for an auto transmission. Any need to refill shows a leak, they don't burn oil like an engine does. I suggest you look for leaks if it does need fluid. If you are having rough shifts and no leaks, likely the brake bands need adjusting - a relatively simple job for an auto transmission specialist.

Transmission fluid I accidently drained the transmission fluid thinking it was the oil. (I know, I know - please no comments) added oil which of course over filled the car. I have been told that I must take it into a dealer and have the motor removed to add trans fluid. Help!! Is this the case or is there some other way to add the fluid

My 2000 Dodge Durango will not shift into what appears to be overdrive. I have not shut the o/d off so I know it is not that. Not sure if adding trans fluid will help, also not engine smart and don't know if I add fluid through the tube that the trans dipstick sits in. Vehicle at 70 mph shows the RPM guage hovering between 2500-2900 rpms, occasionally dropping to 2200 rpms.

1st gear wont shift till 3k rpm. If I let off the throttle it will shift earlier. Also when on throttle a little harder or downshift into second, it will slip. Shifts into other gears fine. No slipping in other gears yet. I dont know anything about this truck. Bought it with a blown motor. Just fixed and drove for the 1st time. It is 2wd if that matters. Trans fluid is full w/ ATF 4 and I just installed a new speed sensor cause the old one was leaking.


Here's a few items you could try. First, change the kickdown adjustment (linkage or cable from the throttle lever to the trans. That will change shift points. Next, inside the trans pan on the drivers side about a third of the way back, you should s ... 1999 Dodge Ram

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L 4 cylinder motor. I had the transmission flushed almost 2 years ago and since then have put 12,000 plus miles on it.

I also know that it is very critical not to add to much transmission fluid. However this is my problem. While running and idling in park at normal operating temperature
