Usually, you will have to change the oil on your Jaguar every 12 months or every 16,000 miles (whichever comes first). It is always best to consult with your owner’s manual to confirm what your specific model requires. Keep in mind that off-road driving, racing, sport driving, and heavy towing will all affect your oil change intervals.
Most auto repair shops will charge between $300 and $350 for an oil change depending on the oil you choose. Labor costs are around $50 to $65.
The four standard types of oil include conventional oil, synthetic oil, synthetic blends, and high mileage oil. Conventional oil is more for light-duty vehicles on the road, usually, your Jaguar will require a more powerful oil. Synthetic oil is a little more expensive than the standard oil but it lasts longer and it also functions best at either high or low temperatures.
