1999 Jaguar XJ8 Question: Transmission Fault?

 

Question

I went to back up and my car that has alot of power, acted like it was in Neutral and then jerked real hard? I drov off and it seemed o.k. but as soon as I had to stop and tried to go again the Transmission Fault message appeared & it took off very sluggish. I turned around and parked it. Could this be due to low trany fluid or is my tranny gone? I need help I have no clue on what to do?

    The next step is to have it looked at by a repair shop, then the determination can be made as to what is wrong. If you don't have a shop, look here: http://repairpal.com/directory?distance=10&sort_by=relevance&address=95670&car_brand_names=Jaguar

    I have a 1999 jag. xj8. your problem has the same exact symtoms, I spoke with German Auto Service in Roseville, they removed transmission and found the front drum snap ring broke. John called errickson industries they sent him a updated part were the weld snap ring into drum, they use a steel drum and it works fantastic.

    Does the transmission have to be removed to do this repair?

    The exact same thing happened to me its the tbs sensor on your throttle body. for about 400.00 send it to a plaace called bba in Massachussetts. They will test and rebuild your throttle body and guarentee it for life. Or you can go to a Jaguar dealer and pay 2100.00 for a new throttle body and another 400-500 in labor charges~!!!

    Can you help me with this? How much did you end of paying (total)? Can you explain exactly what repair had to be done after the $400
