Oil changing

Hi

The gearboxes are supposed to be sealed for life, which is absolute rubbish

well worth changing the oil, will prolong the life

but I would only use genuine zf parts, I think your has the ZF 8HP45

I use something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/genuine-jaguar-xe-zf-8hP45-automatic-transmission-gearbox-pan-sump-filter-7L-oil/263773343119?hash=item3d6a1dcd8f:g:3Z8AAOSwBgZdNgHr

for a few reasons, it left the factory with that oil, the TCM is submersed within the oil in the gearbox and when you change the oil, some oil stays in the torque convertor and it can only be drained completely by removal only, mixing different oils is always a bad idea

cheers

Joe

P.S, here a link to work shop manual to make things easier https://www.dropbox.com/s/ee2nxkx6fgqmb25/workshop_manual.zip?dl=1
