1984 Jaguar XJS Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1984 Jaguar XJS

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1984 Jaguar XJS?

Here’s Why 1984 Jaguar XJS Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Jaguar XJS to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your XJS. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine XJS maintenance. Just follow your 1984 Jaguar XJS maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Jaguar, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your XJS perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Jaguar XJS problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Jaguar XJS Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Jaguar XJS for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your XJS. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 Jaguar XJS? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Jaguar XJS battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Jaguar XJS won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1984 Jaguar XJS engine. See Jaguar's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1984 XJS in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1984 Jaguar XJS? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Jaguar XJS can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Jaguar XJS suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Jaguar XJS's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Jaguar XJS maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Jaguar XJS engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Jaguar XJS radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1984 Jaguar XJS maintenance and repairs.
