Oil Changes for 1984 Jaguar XJS

How Often to Get 1984 Jaguar XJS Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Jaguar XJS? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Jaguar recommends having your 1984 Jaguar XJS’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your XJS in the above table. Outside of Jaguar-recommended oil change intervals, your XJS may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Jaguar recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Jaguar XJS. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Jaguar XJS?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1984 Jaguar XJS motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Jaguar has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1984 XJS. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your XJS’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Jaguar XJS

  • Should I check my Jaguar XJS motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Jaguar XJS engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Jaguar XJS oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Jaguar XJS spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
