Jaguar S type 2001 3L V6 auto gearbox problems

Recommended Posts

Hello, If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. When I select drive I need to move the gear shift across to 4th and move it around to engage drive. Also now I have another problem as a gearbox fault has come up on the display along with a ABS  light that has come on. The car won't shift past 3rd gear. I Have used a diagnostic code reader which indicates a solenoid fault.

Thanks for any help on this matter.

Dave.

Hi Dave,

 

I am not as much a wizard as that Trevor!

 

I would go along with what the code reader has said, initially.  But some S type and x type owners with the auto gearbox have found that an oil change at abut 75k works wonders, even though Jaguar say that the gearbox is for life.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
