Are you looking for the “ultimate in luxury” or just feeling the “need for speed?”

By maxstorm | Posted in Freeman Motor Showroom on Thursday, July 13th, 2017 at 12:42 AM

As a european car enthusiast and lucky to be in the car industry, one of my favorites is the Jaguar XFR-S.

Jaguars have always grabbed my attention, especially with the release of the XF. A Jaguar that actually has room in the back seats for family. The unique design screams luxury and has a very attractive price tag, making it feasible to own one. The only thing the XF was missing was the horsepower. Driving around BMW M5’s and Mercedes E63 AMG’s made me want the same out of the Jaguar. Then, my eyes were opened to the JAGUAR XFR-S. This is still the four door Jaguar XF that fits my entire family with three kids comfortable in the back. I have them glued to their seats with the incredible 550 Horsepower supercharged V8. Stepping on the gas makes me forget all about and AMG or any M series from BMW. The XFR-S has a distinct style, different from any normal Jaguar with it’s aggressive look. With black leather interior and a white exterior, this is my favorite color combination. The black exterior trim especially stands out with this beautiful polaris white paint. With amenities that put any ordinary car to shame, I get the ultimate in luxury. With the horsepower, vents, wheels and spoiler I fill my need for speed.

A timing belt, or chain, keeps the engine internals moving in harmony with each other. Think of the engine like a clock; regardless of how fast the engine is spinning the timing belt/chain keeps the engines assembly from rotating too fast or too slow in relation to itself. The timing belt/chain is very important to the engine as it keeps it from destroying itself.

A timing belt, is made of kevlar, and rubber with high tensile fibers. Newer, or more expensive timing belts are made from HSN (Highly Saturated Nitrile).

Timing belts are usually quieter, however, they are more susceptible to contamination from oil or water leaks and require regular service intervals. Timing chains are metal and don’t have service intervals, but they are vulnerable to stretching.

Timing belts are meant to be serviced. Changing a timing belt out is easier than a timing chain because timing chains are not designed to be serviced. The downside to a timing chain is the expense given it does fail. The upside is that failure with a timing chain is not very often.

The symptoms your vehicle might have if a timing belt or timing chain needs servicing include: check engine light (for timing problems) or misfires that are not electrically caused. The rhythm and harmony of your engine depends so heavily on the proper timing.It is NEVER recommended to put off the aforementioned symptoms as you risk the chance of sever damage to your vehicle’s engine.

We recommend you have your timing belt changed at the factory intervals, and have your vehicles check engine lights checked at reputable service center.
