#1 of 39 Jaguar X-Type: Erratic Clutch Operation

Any questions or comments about the clutch operation or durability of same in the X-Type...post it here.

My X-Type starts out a bit choppy sometimes in first. It's odd that it doesn't seem to do it consistently if it's warm or cold. It's not violent, it's just that the clutch engagement gives more vibrations than I'd expect.
#3 of 39 2002 X-type - l-o-n-g hesitation when easing off gas ?

Any idea what might be happening when easing off gas pedal, downshifting that would make car "hang" between gears before iit goes forward ? Drivers behind you think your brake lights are out because they think you're stopping but foot is on gas. No indicator lights or codes. Ideas? Thanks !

How have you resolved your transmission problem? My transmission has been replaced once and I have taken it back for the same problem to no avail (i.e. when I take my foot off the gas it downshifts especially at 30 mph - a definite driving hazard). Do you have any tips?
#5 of 39 2002 X-Type Gear Box Failure - Transmission
Aug 25, 2007 (3:50 pm)
I have a 2002 X-Type 3.0 with only 15,000 miles. Last week I got the gear box failure message and the car shut down. When I took it to my mechanic, they could not duplicate the problem. It happened again a day or so after that and now my car is back at my mechanic. I even tried the local independent jag mechanic and he said if it was the transmission, he didn't want to work on it since there are so many modules, etc. No one seems to know the actual problem. Since I am out of warranty I obviously cannot get the dealer to take care of it - i'd rather not (for financial reasons) replace the transmission. If anyone can help me narrow down the problem - It will be greatly appreciated.

Could be the gear range sensor, or the cable that works the shifter, or the shifter itself out of adjustment, or an electric ground issue. The computer doesn't know what gear (range) you are in.
#9 of 39 Jaguar X type Clutch
Nov 09, 2008 (7:53 am)
On a brand new Jaguar X Type the car kept stalling while changing gear. What was happening was that the clutch would disengage when the pedal was pressed but would not immediately engaged when the pedal was released. when the clutch decided to engage, it did so violently that the car stalled. It took Jaguar 3 weeks to get the parts and 3 days to fix it and no satisfactory explanation from Jaguar to the cause of the fault. Eight months later the clutch began to slip so badly that he car was undriveable. Another Jaguar repair revealed that the flywheel and clutch springs needed to be replaced. Not bad for a 10 month old car. We are expecting our next failure in April 2009.

No, the problem is not resolved months later -- still does it --- but it's not getting worse. (at least not yet). No lights, no codes, no breakdown so dealer says no problem. And yes it's around the 30 mph range when it happens for me, too.
