Scheduled Maintenance and Potential Repairs
If you’ve invested in a Jaguar, you have an interest in keeping it well maintained. To guide you, the manufacturer has developed a preventive service schedule. For example, your car needs an oil/filter change, fluid check/top off, power antenna cleaning/lubrication, and hinge/fitting lubrication every 5,000 miles. Your technician will also check the belts/hoses, HVAC, tires, the underside of auto, windshield wipers, and lights, concluding the visit with a road test. Additionally, every 15,000 miles, your automobile will need to have the brake system inspected, wheel bearings greased, spark plugs replaced, air filter checked (and replaced if necessary), door locks lubricated, belt checked (and adjusted if necessary), and the throttle plate inspected/cleaned. After 30,000 miles of driving, your vehicle will need a major service visit. This includes an extensive list of points, entailing lubricating several moving parts, replacing and adjusting components showing signs of wear, and inspecting a very long list of parts and systems. Besides routine services, your Jaguar will occasionally need repairs. While anything can happen to any car, a few issues are noted as the most common Jaguar repairs. Some drivers, for instance, note unusual noises during braking. Usually, new brake pads or lubrication eliminate the symptoms. Jaguars made from 2000 through 2005 often exhibit ignition coil failure after about 100,000 miles of driving. Cracking plastic coolant reservoirs have also plagued some models. Unfortunately, the most common major trouble seems to be engine trouble (sometimes caused by the timing chain tensioner) and early transmission failure (most noticeable in the 2000-2006 model years).
