    what is the answer sent me telling me to do ?

  • Albert Berman Jun 19, 2008

    this jag has "lifetime fluid" meaning there is no dip stick to check level. Nor is any fluid leaking on ground or bottom of trans mission. I STATED in orginal post that CHECK ENGINE LIGHT has a CODE 715 and 730 that translates to loose wire or shorted wire or solenoid. The answers I have received indicate little expertise on Jaguar system. Is there someone familiar with The described vehicle problem ?
    And could they assist me in trouble shooting the codes listed ?

If you have an idea how to do the checking..., It is better check the transmission for any leak, you may change & add more fluid into it. but if the problem goes on again, it was better to send it out into a mechanic...

The P0730 code is incorrect gear ratio, suspects are the wrong type of tires on the car or check to see if the transmission has enough oil.

The P0715 codes means Input Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction. this basically means that the pump is getting weak and causing the torque converter to slip

    stopping the engine allows the fluid to go back to the pan, restarting the engine causes it to go back into the torque converter and the transmission parts. it really sounds like you are low on fluid.

You better check the system programmed on your car.

    1. Check the transmission fluid level, if it's low, you have a leak & Look for fluids that have leaked on the ground below the transmission. Check the transmission case as well. Fluid can leak from seals, gaskets, fluid cooler and lines. Pinpoint the exact source of the leak to make proper repairs.

    2. Place a few drops of transmission fluid on a white paper towel. Red or light brown fluid that spreads easily over the towel is in good condition. Dark brown or black fluid that is gooey or thick fluid needs replacing to allow proper pressure and lubrication within the transmission.

    3. Replace the fluid filter to ensure it's in good working order. Check the old filter for metal shavings, which are a sign of wear and require a fluid flush.

    4. Look at your check engine light to verify it has not come on. If the check engine is on, take the car to a mechanic who can pull the code and pinpoint the problem. Electronic transmissions can detect even small faults in operation, and you may want to drive the car to verify that the problem was not a one-time or erroneous error.

    5. Seek the assistance of a professional if the car is no longer going into gear, slipping out of gear while driving or a substantial amount of fluid is leaking. Fixing a transmission problem on your car early can save you money and help keep you on the road for a long time to come.

Why did my car stall when in reverse gear?


I need a little more info. I presume it is automatic, not a manual trans. Was it multiple times that it stalled when you shifted to reverse? or just 1 time. Is the check engine light on, and/or the D4 light flashing?

Cannot get gears untill engine is warm


assuming fluid is full to cold level is the color light red/pink ? If dark grungy and is same when hot - will need changing . GM trans oil loses its thickness - lubrication qualities due to heat / age etc. Ergo unwilling to engage gear / hold gear . Most cars have shift interlock meaning foot must depress brake too move gear shift = Nuetral safety switch receives pressure from brake pedal if it fails to recognize or is worn then trans will not want engage gear .

Reverse doesn't work. drive slips


Sounds like a transmission problem. It could be just electrical, but sounds like it may be partially internal with the reverse problem you are having. You need to take it to a trans shop, or the dealer.

Code p0671


P0761 - Shift Solenoid C Performance or Stuck Off

This shift Solenoid is damaged. this explains the erratic shifting you are experiencing. replace this solenoid asap if possible. This shift solenoid is responsible for the engagement of the O/D gear as well.

Trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th


DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

1999 Grand Voyager transmission not shifting into high gear


Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.
