I grew up in transmission shops as a child. My dad became a shop owner when I was about 7 and always brought me to work with him during the summer. I started learning transmission basics before I was even in highschool so naturaly, when I graduated in the year 2000 I began my career in transmissions. Since then, I have attended multiple seminars a year to learn about all the new advances in automotive technology and all the new querks that follow.

Question Answered: how much would a transmission replacement be

It would really just depend on what the cause is, if you have a bad sensor or solenoid causing the issue then it shouldn't really be more that 3 or 4 hundred dollars. If you bring your car by one of my locations we will drive and scan your car for free and let you know what it will take to fix it.

Question Answered: my transmission needs to be rebuilt
February 04, 2011, 08:34 AM
Don't listen to that guy, there isn't a transmission that was built in the last 30 years with the reverse assembly built separate from the rest of the unit. Most likely, the teeth were stripped off of the low/reverse friction pack and your going to need some form of rebuild. The first step is to find out if the trans. binds in reverse or not, if you bring the truck by one of my shops we will check it out for free and let you know what need to be done.

It will depend on what transmission type you have, but most commonly you will need Mopar ATF+4. Don't try to cheap out and buy a generic AFT+4, it won't have the right viscocity. Mopar makes it a special synthetic grade.

We have worked on many 02 Jaguars have never replaced a TCM. I would reccomend that you get a proffesional to diagnose your Jag or get a second opinion. The most common issue for an X-type is a bad Valvebody assembly.
Question Answered: difficulty of freeze plug replacement
January 26, 2011, 06:47 AM
If it IS a freeze plug issue, the freeze plugs located on the rear of the motor are between the engine and transmission. You have to pull out the transmission to change them. If you would like to bring you truck to one of my locations, we will check it out for free and tell you what needs to be done.

Check your engine coolant level, it's probably low. Your heater core uses the heat off of your engine provided by your engine coolant.
