Ignition System Components

  • Spark Plugs: These are key indicators of your engine’s health. Inspect them every 30,000 miles and replace as necessary to keep your Jaguar roaring optimally.
  • Ignition Coils: These should be inspected for wear during your regular servicing. Malfunctioning coils can affect engine performance and fuel efficiency.

Vital Filters

  • Oil Filter: To maintain your engine’s longevity, replace the oil filter at each oil change, usually around every 7,000 miles depending on your specific model.
  • Air Filter: An essential part of the engine’s breathing system, this should be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
  • Fuel Filter: Important for optimal fuel efficiency, your fuel filter should be replaced every 30,000 miles to ensure that no contaminants clog the fuel system.

Additional Elements to Monitor

  • Transmission Fluid and Filter: Recommended to be replaced every 60,000 miles, these are essential for the smooth shifting and longevity of your transmission.
  • Serpentine Belt: Inspect this crucial component for wear and tear every 40,000 miles and replace as needed.
  • Coolant: It’s advisable to replace the coolant every two years to prevent your engine from overheating.

Expert Tips for Jaguar Maintenance

  1. Specialist Servicing: Jaguars are complex machines; always choose a mechanic specialized in the brand for the most accurate service.
  2. Use Premium Materials: Always opt for high-quality or OEM parts to maintain the integrity of your Jaguar.
  3. Software Updates: Keep your vehicle’s software up-to-date. Many of Jaguar’s systems are digitally controlled and benefit from the latest updates.
  4. Regular Inspections: Seasonal check-ups can help preemptively identify issues, potentially saving you money and hassle in the long run.

Great family owned business, run a cool father and son duo. I’ve been taking my cars here for over a decade.

I’ve come across 2 types of mechanics over the years: 1) fixes what needs fixing, checks everthing else out, tells the customer what to keep an eye on/expect in the future. 2) fixes what needs fixing and EVERYTHING else that it touches.

PB Foreign and Domestic is type 1) – straightforward, steady, and honest – which is why I keep coming back and I suspect it’s why the same guys have been working there for forever too.

Best service, best price, they do a great job and are honest! Family owned and operated. I will continue to take my car here. For regular oil changes and maintanance, George is awesome and everyone he employs, this place is great no complaints! Always will look at something if you have a concern like I did. Minor and didn’t Rip me off like most places would have.

I truly feel like I’m getting the service that’s required and not being upsold on things I don’t need. The price is always better than anywhere else I’ve looked and repairs done timely. They always call if the estimate given to me ends up being different, sometimes it’s lower and if it’s higher they clearly explain why and if it’s absolutely necessary or a recommendation. I trust them.

If you want a local independent family owned car mechanic that is honest, trustworthy, reasonably priced, and not trying to nickel & dime you these are your guys! Aaron is especially a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond at my last oil change to help me on a few things that would have taken tons of time to figure out on my own, you can tell he enjoys helping people (when they aren’t too busy) and is just a personable good natured guy which is so great to have in a car mechanic. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

We really love PB Foreign and Domestic! They have served us well for years on 3 vehicles and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend over dealership or other local facilities. They don’t try to upsell you on things you do not need. Super friendly and can usually get you in within a day or two. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment.

Porsche Cayman – my car was overheating so I had my car towed to PB Foreign and Domestic Car Repair. The team was able to repair my car ( I needed a new radiator and water pump) and they gave me very fair pricing. I will definitely come back for my preventitive maintenance.
