Jaguar XF Gearbox Repair

Jaguar XF Gearbox Repair by Stephens Engineering

A 2012 Jaguar XF gearbox repair was carried out by the automatic transmission specialists in the Stephens Engineering workshop. The customer reported that when the Jaguar XF was driving at high speed and the engine was hot, the vehicle would default and go into limp mode.

This particular 2012 Jaguar XF was a diesel engine with the ZF six speed automatic transmission (later models have the eight speed unit). The Jaguar XF was brought into the Stephens Engineering workshop and a full diagnostic scan was undertaken. The diagnostic scan revealed ratio codes of slippage in E-clutch assembly.

The Jaguar XF automatic transmission unit was then removed, together with the torque converter. On dismantling the Jaguar XF transmission unit, we found a crack in the E-clutch unit and in addition, the main bushings were not performing well and were letting fluid leak past their running shafts.

We carried out a full rebuild of the Jaguar’s automatic transmission unit and fitted a new drum assembly. The automatic transmission unit’s torque converter was rebuilt in-house by our team of specialists, using ZF parts. Finally, we changed the gearbox intercooler unit as these do tend to leak. The final road test confirmed that the Jaguar XF gearbox repair had been successful and the vehicle was now driving well and no longer defaulting to limp mode.

Is your vehicle defaulting to limp mode unexpectedly? If your vehicle isn’t performing as well as it should, book your vehicle in with automatic transmission specialists at Stephens Engineering and let us get you back motoring.
