When to Change 1994 Land Rover Defender 90 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Land Rover Defender 90’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1994 Defender 90’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Defender 90 in the above table. Outside of Land Rover-recommended oil change intervals, your Defender 90 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Land Rover if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Land Rover Defender 90. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Land Rover Defender 90

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Defender 90 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Defender 90’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Land Rover oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
