Hi, My 2003 JAGUAR XTYPE 2.5 V6 AUTOMATIC, went into limp mode while i was going 80 mph on the freeway. The engine light came on and the limp mode light. My mechanic said its in need of a new transmission, Im hoping for something else. The car will go about 5 seconds and drive with just the engine light on and then the limp mode light will go on and car wont really accelerate. Whats weird to me is before this happened, i would be sitting in the car and listeningto music with the switch on right before you turn the car on and if i started it from that point it would go into limp mode, but i would just put it back in park and turn it off. Then it would be fine once I restarted it. Help! I really cant afford a new car or transmission. Im carless and hopeless right now.
