I have a 2000 XJ8L with 119,000 miles on it and prior to me replacing the throttle body I was receiving the high gearbox temperature, failsafe mode and then the after awhile the limp mode message would eventually come up and the car would not operate properly. I would turn off the car wait for awhile(maybe and hour or so) and then it would allow me to drive it a few blocks and the same thing would happen. As previously stated I just had the Throttle body replaced and the oil changed and filters changed on 3/10/11, but yesterday I got the high gearbox temperature message AGAIN! What could cause this? Car just off warranty Sept 2010 for my Dad kept renewing warranty until he passed. Can you help me with this?
