I present a multi-wavelength study of the radio-loud quasar PKS2135-147, a variable source in X-ray and UV emission. First identified in 1966, this source is variable on the scale of months to years. X-ray and UV data from Swift are primarily used in this study, and this source has been observed by Swift since 2013. It can be seen that the variable emission from this source is primarily due to accretion rate fluctuations, though there are also contributions from the jet.
