Inside Line: Meyle

by

Sven Nielsen, Technical Director from Meyle, says the following difficulties may arise with the Jaguar XJ X350 and X358:

Switching problems occur after oil change

Problem:

Transmission oil is highly stressed. It is aging and wearing by abrasion, temperature and chemical processes. This leads to high risk of reduced driving comfort and modified gear changing conditions, up to costly transmission defects! Despite successful oil changes comfort and switching problems still occur because during an oil change for technical reasons only max. Two-thirds of the oil volume is changed. Therefore many deposits remain in the residual oil and in the transmission.

Meyle solution:

– Regular oil change every 6-8 years
– With a mileage exceeding 60,000 kilometres Meyle recommends that the transmission fluid and filters be changed along with the respective components to maximise gearbox performance and service life.
– Any vehicle manufacturer’s individual specifications must be given priority.
– To ensure compliance with professional standards use special tools when refilling transmission fluid and checking the fluid level.
– Only by a comprehensive transmission fluid flushing almost a complete transmission cleaning is achieved. This requires type-specific special tools (available at tool specialists), e.g.:
• Special lift to tilt the car (necessary to run out remaining oil)
• Service station
• Adapter kit for service station
