  2. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    Hi Guys New to the forum and not technically minded at all. My son and i went to look at a 1998 XK8 today that has not been used for 5/6 years. We took a mechanic with us who commissioned the car enough to start it, engine runs like a dream. HOWEVER, the car reverses ok but will NOT drive...

    Hey everyone, first time Jaguar owner here, trying to fix up my first car so it passes warranty. I recently got a 1990 Xj40 and my gear box isn't in line with the rest of the center console. It shifts perfectly and it drives fine but the leather and chrome housing doesn't fit over the gear box...

    how to get the best out of your gate gearbox.
  5. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi, Last week soon after setting off while toodling along in 3rd gear at around 25 mph in town I got a not too loud but harsh low frequency metallic rattling coming from under the bonnet which stopped when I changed down into second, took a corner and accelerated through the gears and since...

    Hi, Everything is fine on my 166,000 miles X Type 2.0d apart from very occasionally the gearbox baulking when changing into second, normally when changing down. I don't think it's synchro or mechanical as when it happens it's accompanied by a rubbery squeaking/squelching sound that indicated...

    Hi Guys, I’m thinking ahead of an oil change for XF S 3.0D with 8speed ZF transmission. I have 140k on clock and no issues with gearbox at the moment. I have two questions: 1- there are much cheaper oils like Mannol that are made for ZF 8 speed. What do you think about using them compared to ZF...

    I'll soon be converting my X300 XJR from auto to manual box. I already have all the components, but I have a couple questions about the gearbox and flywheel: I've heard that the 3.6L XJS flywheel is considered an "upgrade" from the original dual-mass flywheel used in the manual X300 cars, but...

    Have an ongoing intermittent issue with gearbox on my 2008 X-Type 2.2 Diesel. Hear a slight "thud" when accelerating from 2nd to 3rd, warning lights come on, and car sticks in second and won't shift up or down. Only way to fix is to stop car altogether, switch engine off and on again, and the...

    In first and second gear - worse under load when accelerating - i get a whirring noise which gets louder as the revs climb, the noise drops again after the box changes to second. As i accelerate up through second the same thing happens again. Getting louder as the revs climb then going away when...

  12. XJ8 / XJR (X308) 1997 - 2003
    My xj8 1998 is gradually getting more difficult to shift from park, was working fine a few months ago then would have to be put into neutral to start,(I get an engine failsafe mode message but when in neutral it starts fine) now it is taking ages to release from park and I'm reluctant to force...
  13. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hello All! I'm looking at getting a 2.2 diesel X Type but dread the thought of the FWD. Is it possible (within reason) to transplant the AWD system from the petrol model to the diesel? Has this been done before successfully? Thank you.
  14. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi folks, I was wondering if someone could point be in the right direction. I have a 2.5 AWD Manual X-Type that, a few weeks ago, struggled to get into any gear. It felt as if the gears had moved further away and I could only just reach them. I presumed it was the gear linkages and decided to...

    I used the manual selection mode on my auto s type diesel for the first time in ages today. And after a short time the "gearbox fault" light came on. I turned the ignition off and on again and its gone. I recently had the gearbox oil changed after a leak. They initially put dexron in. But i...

    Recently bought a 2.7D SE S-Type. At certain speeds, In between 30-50, the car judders. I accelerate through the judder and it goes away above 50 or so. When moving at high speed it seems perfectly smooth. No issue. I have been told it could be wheel balance. I swapped the wheels around on one...
  17. XK8 / XKR (X100) 1996 - 2005
    I have just registered with this forum, but have been reading it posts for a long time, a great knowledge base. I have a 1998 XK8 convertible, 87K miles, had it for about 5 years, a joy to drive. I have an ongoing issue with the 5HP24 gearbox, I have done much searching and it is none of the...
  18. XJ-S / XJS 1976 – 1996
    Can any experts advise if you have had the same fault and where to source parts..... My XJ-SC has been in a private collection before I bought it so not doing many miles. On driving for the first few days the manual gearbox was silky smooth. Now it won't get gears. - Standing without the...

    Hi, I'm from Portugal and I want to find a gearbox (with torque) to put in my Jag. The problem is that in Portugal they ask a lot for that part. Anyone knows where in Europe I can find a good dealer where I can contact to get that gearbox? The model of the gearbox is: 6HP26 NR:1068010105...
