There is no fill tube on either the 5HP24 (1996-2002) or 6HP26 (2003-2006) transmissions. They are both "sealed for death". By changing your transmission fluid you will prolong the life of the transmission. Jaguar only offered a 50,000 mile warranty, so they stand to benefit if your transmission conks out at 90,000 miles. The car has to be up on a lift (or at least on 4 tall jack stands) to check the fluid level or to add more fluid. Plus, the engine has to be running. You check the fluid level from the fill plug, and the plug is right next to the exhaust pipe which gets very hot. If you turn off the engine during the procedure, about 5 liters of fluid will drain out of the fill plug. Here's a video which shows the process for changing the fluid and pan on a 2003 transmission. The procedure is essentially the same for the 2002 and earlier cars, but there are some slight differences in the transmission internally.

SOURCE: 99 jaguar transmission code p1722

This code is an indication that the transmission has excessive slippage, the code is for the input and output turbine speed sensors, based on what i know of this problem the trans has a mechanical problem, that would be low fluid pressure or worn out forward clutches, make sure the trans fluid is not low, if it is ok you will need to have the trans torn down for inspection..

get a rebuilt or used transmission. Jaguar says you don't have to change trans fluid because it should last the "life of the trans" which means it will die just like everything else. Fluid change will do no good. I just went thru this.

Check engine light


Take you Jag in for its 6 Mon/1 yer maintenance schedule check up for the can rest the light. This engine light will come on when the vehicle has reached certain mileage and/or time interval.


Unless, if the vehicle is have some other problems, like fuel pump, it not running the correctly, ERG valve is out, O2 sensor is bad, etc. But if your Jaguar XJ8 is doing just dandy. Then it need to be other type of service; such as, coolant changed, differnial fluid needs to be changed, or the automatic transmission also needs to be changed. GB...stewbison

Where to check transmission fluid on a 2001 jaguar xjr


If there is a red dipstick, check it from here.
If no dipstick, then you will have to go from underneath and look at tranny. There will be two plugs on tranny. A lower drain plug and upper fill plug. You can remove the upper fill plug, put finger in the whole and you should be able to feel the fluid. If not, add some, You can use a rubber hose and funnel or top with hose on bottle to help fill it up

1999 Jaguar. Gearbox fault Restricted Performance light on. No first gear


I would make sure the fluid maintenance is done. The most likely cause is the transmission or transfer case is gone internally.
I would take the vehicle to the transmission shop.
