So you have the 4 speed automatic transmission? 2WD or 4WD? Which engine, 4 cylinders or V6?

If you have an automatic transmission take the XJ out for a drive that is long enough to warm up the transmission fluid good, then park it on a level surface place it in park and leave the engine running. Open hood and look fore transmission dipstick (should be located on left side of engine [from front] back near fire wall) remove, wipe of with clean rag and reinsert, remove again and check for the level of the fluid according to marks on dipstick, at the same time look at the color of the fluid red is good, brown and burnt smelling is bad. If red and not burnt smelling but low add in small amounts of fluid until normal level is close to being attained. A little less than normal is OK, OVER FULL IS BAD. Take for another test drive if fluid is added.

Post back what your findings are.
