I have a 1999 Jaquar XJ8 with 97,000 miles. Up until a week ago, my car was running fine. One day it began to "jerk" suddenly as I was taking off. The Check Engine and Transmiision Fault light went on and the car accelerated very slowly. The best way to describe the sensation is if I was pulling a heavy trailer. Once I accelerated, the car eventually took off and starting running rather smoothly without any hesitation whatsoever. Upon arriving at a stop sign or red light, I experienced the pulling sensation once again. I'm guessing (hopefully wrong) that I may need a new transmission. Any advice or help that anyone could give me on this would be deeply appreciated.
have the same problem?
