Preventative maintenance

A simple part, like this heater valve from a Jaguar S-Type, can create MAJOR headaches if preventative maintenance is ignored. Note the pink stains from leaking engine coolant/antifreeze.  If left unrepaired this valve would have continued to leak. This leak would have shorted out the delicate climate control computers.  We have seen this happen often and the repair parts cost over $2000.  Replacing the heater valve at the first sign of trouble is your best line of defense against a high repair bill.  This $290 part can cause over $2000 in damage if left unrepaired. Fresh antifreeze/coolant will also help prevent corrosion to the delicate engine cooling system components.  Car manufacturers recommend flushing your coolant every couple of years to keep corrosion problems from developing. Let us MAINTAIN your car so you don’t have to worry about high repair bills.   20130227-094403.jpg


A lot of things going on

The shop has been extremely busy and we have even sold most of our Pre-owned Jaguars and Land Rovers. Don’t worry we always have some interesting cars coming in looking for new homes. As a matter of fact we have a beautiful 2001 Jaguar S-Type that just came in.

A few of our major winter projects have gotten underway and I’m sure we will have enough time to complete them before the spring motoring season. We are in the process of building up several high performance engines, including a Jaguar Super V12 and a Bullet Proof Land Rover 4.6 Liter V8. We even have a very rare Land Rover Diesel Forward Control and a Daimler SP250 Roadster to prepare and get ready for the spring.

We have been replacing a lot of faulty transmissions lately. Even though the new car manufacturers consider their transmissions “sealed for life”, we still believe it is a good idea to change the fluid and filter on these vehicles. Here at Authorized Imported Cars, we have the proper tools, parts, and diagnostic equipment to enable us to properly service these transmissions. It is a computer aided process to service and fill these transmissions to the proper fluid level – there are no dipsticks for checking the level. Servicing the transmission is not something an enthusiastic car owner can do on a weekend with a few tools and and some fluid like in the good old days.

This weekend we will be away at a technical training program focusing on the BMW Mini Coopers. We will gain some fresh hands on knowledge about the new drivetrain diagnostics, coding, and programming. Mid-March we will be traveling to Florida for the National Technicians Training Conference to keep our Jaguar and Land Rover expertise up to date.
