TIPS TO REDUCE MECHANICAL PROBLEMS
Only have your Jaguar taken care of by specialty mechanics and shops. Don’t put your Jaguar in the hands of someone who does not fully understand the mechanics and special needs of this car. Your Jaguar maintenance should only be performed by people specially trained with the skills and knowledge to give your car expert attention and care.
GET REFERENCES BEFORE WORK BEGINS
Find out the reputation of the shop and of the shop’s mechanics before agreeing to have repair or maintenance work performed on your Jaguar. Get references. Ask questions from friends and professional colleagues about which shop and mechanics they entrusted their Jaguar maintenance to. Utilize online resources like Yelp to see what people are saying about Jaguar repair shops in your area. Then choose the best one based on your research.
Regular tune-ups are an important part of your Jaguar maintenance. Schedule these at set time intervals between performances of maintenance. Mileage can vary and is not always the best indicator when a tune-up is needed
GET INFORMATION ON YOUR MAINTENANCE
Each time you receive any type of Jaguar maintenance, request a list of services performed on the car. Ask for the products used to do each of the services. The products should include brand names, specifications and other identifying information. Put the Jaguar maintenance records in the glove box or an other safe and clean place. If there is a problem with the Jaguar, you will be glad to have these types of records at your fingertips.

Inspect your tires monthly for even wear-and-tear. Uneven wear on the tires can indicate the need to have the Jaguar’s tires balanced and aligned. Avoid roads and parking lots with pot holes and speed bumps.
WINTERIZE YOUR JAGUAR
In the late spring or early fall months, have your Jaguar winterized by a specialty shop like Ed. Wright’s British Car Repair. Winterizing reduces the wear on the engine during the colder months. Additionally, have the fluids changed and topped off at the end of winter before warmer spring and summer weather temperatures start. This type of maintenance keeps the Jaguar operating under optimum mechanical conditions.

VINTAGE XK Series The Jaguar XK150 is a sports car produced by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961. It replaced the XK140.
Initially it was only available in fixed head coupé (FHC) and drophead coupé (DHC) versions. The roadster (XK150 OTS - open two-seater) without full weather equipment was launched in 1958. Minimal rear seats were fitted in the coupés. There was no seating or storage space in that part of the open two-seater. The open two-seater broke with tradition and was fitted with high-silled wind-up windows in its new taller doors but retained the very simple folding roof of its predecessors.
