Servicing

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of having a go at servicing my S-type myself. Is there a list of what is done for the minor and major service?

I will be getting help from my friend who has worked on a lot of old cars but the most complex one he has done is the vauxhall C20xe so whether the 2.7d is a lot more complex to service?

Any advice/guidance would be great.

Welcome to the Club, Geoff.

 

I am not mechanically expert, but there are some members who do their own servicing who I am sure will assist.

 

There will be a list somewhere, but not in the owners Handbooks, as Jaguar Main Dealers like to charge you £140 an hour to do work on your car.

 

I will have a look round on the internet and I am sure that there is something there, and will get back to you.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

HI GEOFF

We have what we call an A service and  B service at work the minor is oil, filters

air, fuel  The major is the same but may change brake fluid, pollen filter. check

pads, wipers, test the strength of anti freeze  take up hand brake if needed not much more just put some grease

on your gear knob and door handle to make it look good and charge you a fortune LOL

TREVOR

 

 

PS, AS LONG AS YOU DO THE OIL, AND FILTERS KEEP AN EYE ON BRAKES

YOU SHOULD BE FINE

just to put anyone's mind to rest we only do work on our own  company

 

trucks lol

Hi Geoff,

 

I found a site in the USA that lists the maintenance schedule for Jaguar cars.

 

I found it under Jaguar Maintenance Service and the company is J E Robison services.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Id honestly check what they are actually going to do before you book it in.  It may state Major service but some, well most, times their idea of a major service is different to yours.   I have done a lot of research on the subject lately and most "major" services mean just a look around your car and an oil change basically.   You would be better off with an MOT and an independent oil and filter change from a good garage. At the average cost of between £200-£300+  id want more for my money.

 

Of course if you can prove me wrong please feel free.  I certainly wont be offended. :)
