I want to replace the bushings and belts on my '92 that I recently acquired, and a Google review has scared me off the shop that I had been using. It’s an okay garage, but a reviewer claimed he brought his car (make unidentified) into the shop for an oil change, and it was done incorrectly, resulting in severe engine damage.
I have another shop that handles more mundane transport, typically US and Japanese cars, and I trust the owner implicitly. He sometimes does routine things for the Jag. I haven’t asked him yet, but are replacements of bushings and belts on an XJ40 straightforward and be accomplished by most competent mechanics, or do they have to go to Jaguar school to do the job?
