Does it not engage at all, or is there a long delay?

It is the shift cable. It just needs adjusted. You need a 15/16 wrench and vice grips. Fung fu grip the center console off the car. Put it in neutral. Then put the vice grips just behind the nut, on the metal. Back off one of the nuts a little, then tighten the other side. It will move the cable inside. Then put it from neutral to reverse and back to neutral and back to drive. The distance between R-N and N-D should be the same. The letters should light up at same distance I mean. If it isnt, go the other direction. If you are not comfortable doing that, have someone else do it. But it is just an adjustment.

Side note......Jags can be high maintenance. You should be prepared for unexpected costs to arise. Part of the joy of ownership....just not knowing if you are going to make it there or not.....lol

You have to remember, it is a new/old Jaguar. After 8 years you gotta appreciate that things will wear. Good luck. The Ford dealer should have no problem adjusting it. After all it is a Ford 5R55N gearbox thats in it.

factoryjaguartech does the car need to be running when doing that adjustment i am goign to try and figure out if i can do it myself can you please explain again (Fung fu grip the center console off the car. Put it in neutral. Then put the vice grips just behind the nut, on the metal. Back off one of the nuts a little, then tighten the other side) does that mean hold the centerconsole tightly and put the car in nuetral i dont understand why you have to hold the center console ? does the center console have to come out then you have acces to these nuts?

Great post,

We noticed JTIS directs us to moving the gear rotary arm (on side of transmission) whilst performing the cable adjustment.

Could you explain why it was't necessary in this instance.

Regards,

Leonard, I don't think you will get a reply from any of these guys, they haven't been around in a long time.

My suggestion is to replace both the shift cable and the plastic piece on the shifter assy that typically breaks. The cable is stretched and by adjusting, you're only getting one gear precisely, the others are now off.

The cable and metal piece can be replaced for under $100.

Default S Type Shifting problems

I have a 2000 jaguar s type, 3.0 litre, with 98,000 miles. About a year ago I already repaired the transmission and it works fine, recently I replaced the plastic part on the shift and adjust the shifting cable and now after I start the engine and put the gear shift lever (automatic) to "drive", nothing more happens, it does not go into gear. I then move the shift lever over to the gear "2" and it does go into gear. After that, I move it over to "drive" and the car runs fine. Please; żAny advice?

on my 2001 s type4.0 it does engage after a delay when i push the stick all the way to D..i've been driving it this way for 25000 miles..would that hurt the tranny? for the past few months i've noticed it is hard to move the stick from park to R or D and i can feel a strong movement anytime i shift between P R N D.. i havn't serviced the tranny at all coz my owner's manual states that it is sealed for life..is it possible for the tranny to live long without any service,esp. i have 100k on it, or it might be dying on me soon...i appreciate any info since my comprehensive extended warranty($3500) is expiring in 2 months and i don't knw what the best to do
