Default Transmission Drain.Fill procedure FAQ

Can soneone kindly post pics of fill plug and drain plug for a 2002 jaguar x type 2.5l auto tranny. i read most post reference oil drain and fill but am still not clear. my x type is a left hand drive.

What i do know is this.

1. there is a hex screw behind the battery that can be accessed using a funnel and tubing. Is this the fill plug?

2.where exactly is the drain plug? (photo would be nice)

3.where exactly is the fluid check level?(photo would be nice)

also remember that i have a left hand drive and automatic tranny. any assisstance would be appreciated.
thanks

Here is a link to the Alldata fluid check procedure:
http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/rm...type_Fluid.pdf

Here is the JTIS fluid drain & refill procedure:

Transmission Fluid Drain and Refill
  • Raise and support the vehicle
  • Place a suitable container under the transmission drain plug
  • Remove the transmission drain plug
  • Install the transmission drain plug; Tighten to 45 Nm
  • Lower the vehicle
  • Remove the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Use automatic transmission fluid WSS-M2C922-A1 or equivalent meeting Jaguar specification
  • Fill the automatic transmission with up to 8 litres of automatic transmission fluid through the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe
  • Carry out a fluid level check and adjustment
Transmission Fluid Level Check
  • Make sure J-Gate shift selector is in the Park position
  • With the engine running and the foot brake applied, move the J-Gate shift selector through ' P-R-N-D-4-3-2' and back to the ' P' position to circulate the automatic transmission fluid until the temperature reaches 30 to 40C (86 to 104F)
  • When the automatic transmission fluid temperature reaches 35C (95F) check that the selector lever is in the ' P' position raise the vehicle
  • With the engine running, remove the automatic transmission fluid level tube plug, Remove and discard the level plug and sealing washer
  • Use automatic transmission fluid WSS-M2C922-A1 or equivalent meeting Jaguar specification
  • If the automatic transmission fluid does not come out of the transmission fluid level tube the automatic transmission fluid level is insufficient. If this is the case add the automatic transmission fluid in 0.5 litre units into the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe until the automatic transmission fluid comes out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube
  • Remove the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Make sure the automatic transmission fluid temperature does not exceed 40C (104F). If the automatic transmission fluid temperature does exceed 40C (104F) stop the automatic transmission fluid level check and allow the automatic transmission fluid to cool until the temperature reaches 30 to 40C (86 to 104F).
  • Allow the automatic transmission fluid to come out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube until the overflow stops at a temperature of no more than 40C (104F).
  • If when the automatic transmission fluid level plug is first removed and automatic transmission fluid comes out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube, allow the automatic transmission fluid to come out of the automatic transmission fluid level tube until the overflow stops at a temperature of no more than 40C (104F).
  • Install the transmission fluid level plug, Install a new level plug and sealing washer, Tighten to 15 Nm
  • Install the automatic transmission fluid charging pipe cap
  • Lower the vehicle

Well, the photo in my previous post I took this morning is of my `04. I don't know if they are all hex head but mine certainly appears to be.

Best bet would be to jack `er up and take a peek.

I don't know if Mercon 5 meets the spec or not, but Castrol Import Multi-Vehicle ATF does, and it is a very cost-effective fluid as well.

When you remove the drain plug, you will not get all 9 quarts to come out. Unless the transmission has been overfilled, only 3 quarts will come out at a time. You can then re-install the plug, and add 3 quarts. Drive it for a day or two, and repeat this procedure until the fluid looks clean and red.

This procedure has been described on the Roadfly Website, and several of us have used it successfully.

Too bad Gold_04_X-Type's photos (bottom of post #2) are no longer available.

I've read that some folks have mistaken the check level plug with another bolt on the case nearby it and once they turned that bolt, their transmission no longer had any reverse.

Mine's about the age where I am ready to drain and refill my transmission, so those photos would have come in very handy!

The pictures are still available and they show up when I view this thread. Is anyone else not seeing the pics?

I cannot find the post now, it seems it was by a Jag Tech who said the only transmissions that he ever saw failed had Mercon in them when he tore them apart. Does anyone else remember the post?

I can see them now on THIS computer, so it must have been the particular computer and what security settings are set to in that browser making them unavailable when I said that.

BTW...thanks for the pics!! Very helpful.

I did find this on Bob the oil guy RE Mercon in a Jag.........



"iirc that trans does not take Merc V. when we had a used jag s-type in shop that needed a trans (were a ford dealer) i called jag and they said it was $45 a quart for the fluid. our used car manager said it was crazy, and had our trans tech flush it with merc v. the car didnt make it out of the lot on the first test drive. "i told you so" was real fun to say right then."

Found at this link

I found this thread on the Jatco transmission. I just had the engine replaced. The trans fluid needed filled. The engine is back in, the trans is acting badly, now I don't have reverse. I need to know this (wrong plug) information myself, so I will be researching on it. Please let me know if you find anything in the interim.
I'm not a happy camper right now.

Default Some thoughts... logic check, please.....

Alright.... based on what I've read on this thread;

1. When you drain via the sump plug you should get out roughly 3.5 quarts if the transmission was properly filled to begin with.

2. If it was overfilled you will get out more; underfilled less.

3. Based on the above, regardless if the level was above or below proper fill level the same fixed amount should remain in the torque converter and other parts of the tranny when you drain it.

So..... if someone could confirm that 3.5 quarts is the right amount you need to refill with (assuming you let it sit all night and did the drain/refill the next day without running the car given ambient temperture) in a previously properly filled trans then we can get a roughly accurate measure of how much to add to get it up to the proper level without going through the level check procedure.

There has to be an easier way; were talking fixed volumes (a constant for the math problem) give or take than can be held other than the sump...


Feel free to tell me I'm nuts... I plan to do this next week end would appreciate any further wisdom.

(did the transfer case last week end.... old gear oil was still honey colored with no metal shavings after 53K miles albeit a bit thick and low on volume)

Autoparts from around the corner from my house, arrived home did the

drain and got 3.5 qts out, I refilled with 4.5 qts just in case it needed

more before the drain because I have my 2004 X type 3.0 since 2 years

ago and with 110,785 miles on it and I do not know if prior owner took
care of it and it works fine so far..
