    Gear box fault

    After a month waiting the part arriving to replace the actuator but it only works after 15 miles driving then issue re-appear. The mechanist put plug in and found another code that turbo got stuck and need to check and replace new turbo charger. I'm not lucky at all as mechanist said replace actuator is 50% luck to fix the issue but he did not said that before :). Please advise should I purchase used turbo charger because mechanist order used actuator already

    Gear box fault

    Hi Cubist, Thanks. My Jag 2008 diesel automatic got this issue therefore I try to find the way to fix it with reasonable cost. Yesterday I brought my jag to local garage then techie plug in to detect code then he said one sensor was malfunction then he need to find out and replace them. At first he will clear the code then message disappear but after driving few miles then message is appear. I will bring back my jag to him to replace sensor if any, then if issue still exist I will ask him to check turbo/actuator

    Gear box fault

    Hi all, I found this topic same issue of gearbox fault then I think it can help. Below is a quote from topic owner but you can read all threads from this link Last, hopefully, update. 60 mile trip today at highish speed, therefore engine and turbo well up to temp, and NO repercussions. So, I now feel comfy that the issue is resolved. Summary of thread: Started with the appearance of a message on the dashboard display "Gearbox Fault" accompanied by flashing glowplug icon and amber light. Outcome: engine in limp mode and auto gearbox not shifting. Diagnosis at local indie: P132A Turbo/Supercharger Boost control A electrical and another, I can't remember what, though. Likely source Turbo Actuator. My comment: How come "Gearbox Fault"? Well, consensus opinion, the display is registering the symptom, not the source. Advised that best route would be to replace the complete turbo assembly. Cost £1400 approx. Don't like that route Find Taylor Motor Services on eBay. They seem to be familiar with the symptoms/diagnosis and offer a recon service for own turbo actuatorunit at £89.95. I opt for this. Postage to them £7.15 recorded dely. Two days later, recon unit received back. (Fastest ever service I can recall.) Recon'd Actuator refitted by indie. Car starts and runs normally. No messages etc. Problem solved. Therefore, by going down the recon actuator route I saved £1222.90 (£1400.00 - £177.10 (£89.95 + £7.15 + local indie investigation and diagnosis cost £80) = £1222.90) OK, you could argue that I don't have a new turbo. But the current turbo is patently operating just fine and at only 50K miles I don't think I need bother too much on that front. So, in footie parlance - A RESULT

    Gear box fault

    Hi all, I got the same problem and it might be battery low voltage because I only have short drive daily let say 40 km/day. Problem is after turn off engine and start next day then the fault still existed. I better send vehicle to mechanic so he can plug in and detect the errors. Changing new battery is also another option

    Brake got rusted

    Hi all, I searched parts for brake from ebay and Amazon then I think Brembo dish rotor, pads are good price. Then I can order and change the rusted one. For caliper I can get it painted but I really don't know if old calipers work well with new dish rotor? If you all have any ideas then please advise. Thank you
