Jaguar Automatic gearbox repair

Jaguars are a luxury, high-quality vehicle, however, they can still develop problems over time, including with their automatic transmission. It’s important to resolve these issues quickly rather than continue driving the faulty vehicle. This could cause further issues and will only cost more to repair long-term. JLR Essex, however, can carry out a full mega flush automatic transmission service for your Jaguar, up to 60% cheaper than main dealer prices.

If you think there is an issue with your Jaguar gearbox functionality due to a single incident, or whether the transmission feels less smooth than previously due to wear and tear, JLR Essex’s specialist team can inspect and resolve the issue for you, using industry-leading equipment. We carry out Jaguar servicing on all Jaguar models, including Jaguar XJ, F-PACE, F-TYPE, Jaguar XF, Jaguar X-Type, XKR & Jaguar S-Type.

Automatic gearbox problems

There are some common signs which signify issues with your transmission:

  • Difficulty when changing gears
  • Noises coming from the transmission, such as grinding, clunking, humming
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • The smell of burning coming from the transmission
  • Flashing check engine light
  • Other specific fault alerts and warnings
  • Difficulty accelerating in some gears

Whether you’ve noticed any of these issues with your transmission or you just want to have the vehicle inspected to prevent any issues occurring, get in touch today.

Why problems occur with automatic transmission

When we change gears with an automatic transmission, heat is generated due to the continuous friction of the clutch plates. It is important to change the fluid in the transmission system, we recommend every 4 years or 40,000 miles, whichever comes first. This helps disperse heat better and lubricates the clutch plates, which keeps the gear transmission smooth and helps prevent any issues occurring. 

If however, the transmission fluid isn’t replaced frequently enough, issues with the gearbox can arise. There are important additives in the fluid, which over time oxidise and break down. This reduces how well the fluid lubricates and protects the transmission. If these additives aren’t replaced, then rust, acid and sludge can build up in the fluid, possibly causing transmission failure.
