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.

I am so fed up with this transmission fault. It's been in shop for months at a time I wouldn't refer this vehicle to my worst enemy if I had one.

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?

my Jaguar slips from shifts 1-2 only but the problem has increased recently with slips even on soft pedals. I am currently thinking of replacing the clutch plate and pressure plate....anyone knows if this is possible for autos? Need to purchase the same. Also would be nice to know if anyone has identified jaguar part outlets where such parts can be bought.
