Change Automatic Transmission Oil Every 60,000 Miles on Jaguar XJR

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The automatic transmission oil is synthetic and Jaguar claims it never needs changing. However, to prolong the transmission life our technicians strongly recommend changing the automatic transmission oil every 60,000 miles.

Use only Jaguar-approved fluid and carefully follow the Jaguar instructions for refilling the transmission.

Car would have an occasional very harsh shift from first to second gear. The transmission shop found the level two quarts low and did a complete service with new approved Jaguar fluid. Transmission is operating smooth and normal.
Had transmission filter and fluid changed for preventative maintanence. No problems associated with the transmission at this point.
