    Problem: Vehicle shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and also from 4th to 5th (overdrive) when using a "Heavy Foot" on the gas. Under slight pedal, it shifts fine between 1st and 2nd, but always "bumps" into OD? No warning lights until last week. Problem first started at 97,950 miles... Currently at 98,998 miles with no change in problem? Instrument panel (odometer display area) now shows "Transmission Fault Warning". Haven't had the car looked at to determine the problem, but this is the only issue the car has given me since I bought it? FYI 3.0 V-6 Sport Model.

    Seems like the car is put in limp mode and is only operating in one gear. Probably 3rd. Funny smell also may be transmission fluid burning?

    At 100,000 miles the lurching became bad at times. Bad when cold, smoothed out after warming up after about 10 minutes. On my home from work this morning, I went to pass another vehicle, put foot in pedal mildly and the transmission lurched, jerked, bucked, & kicked. It then shut down into about 4th gear & now the transmission does not change at all. It is stuck in probably 4th gear. What a crock that a high end car like this conks out at 140,000 miles. I guess Ford didn't turn the Jag company around like I heard!!
