When you own a luxury vehicle like a Jaguar in the Chicagoland area, you want to make sure it’s well cared for and maintained properly, so you can continue to enjoy the well-appointed features and performance of your sedan or SUV. That’s why it’s important to keep up with the recommended automotive maintenance schedule at various mileage or yearly intervals.

How Often to Change Oil

Oil helps your engine run by providing lubrication so that all parts glide smoothly. Without it, these part can begin to grind and cause damage.

You should get your oil changed approximately every 4,000 to 6,000 miles. Be sure to check our owner’s manual to see the exact mileage and learn how to check your oil.

How Often to Change Air Filter

Engines not only need oil, but also air, to function properly. Your Jaguar needs air flowing into the engine bay. However, if the filter is dirty and obstructed, the performance and fuel economy of your vehicle can be affected.

Air filters should be replaced as frequently as you have your oil changed — approximately every 4,000 to 6,000 miles.

How Often to Rotate Tires

New tires typically have a mileage limit of 40,000 miles to 80,000 miles, but you will only reach that limit if you rotate your tires regularly for even wear. It’s recommended that you have your tires rotated every 5,000 miles or so.

It’s a good idea to regularly inspect your tires regularly for sign of damage and wear, such as deflation and low treads.

How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Car batteries can last for up to 5 years on the roads of Naperville and the surrounding suburbs, but an old battery could die to a sudden Chicago cold snap. When you’re nearing that 5-year mark, it’s smart to start thinking about replacing the battery before it dies.

Your Jaguar vehicle’s battery doesn’t require regular maintenance, but it is important to inspect it regularly to make sure it’s still working properly. If there’s signs of damage or wear, like leaking or corrosion, it might be time to replace the battery.

How Long Do Windshield Wipers Last?

While there’s no set interval for when you should replace your wiper blades, it’s best to replace them as soon as you notice an issue. It’s also a good idea to replace them during spring or winter maintenance if they’re old.

If you turn your wipers and and notice that they’re not clearing away all of the water, debris, or snow before your Schaumburg commute, it’s time for new wiper blades. You’ll also want to inspect the blades to see if any of the rubber has been damaged or fallen off.

Your wipers will help to keep your windshield clean, but if you want to enjoy superior visibility, you should know how to clean the inside of the windshield by hand.
