Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 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, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Land Rover Defender 90 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Land Rover Defender 90 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
