What Does Your Jaguar S-Type Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Jaguar S-Type transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Jaguar S-Type transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your S-Type at all.

2000 Jaguar S-Type Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Jaguar's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jaguar? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your S-Type’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my S-Type transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Jaguar S-Type transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jaguar. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
