What to Know About 1996 Land Rover Discovery Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Land Rover Discovery, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Discovery. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Discovery, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Land Rover Discovery!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Land Rover, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Discovery running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Land Rover Discovery problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Land Rover Discovery

Bring your 1996 Land Rover Discovery to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Discovery's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Land Rover Discovery. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Land Rover Discovery battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Discovery stranded. Your Land Rover Discovery won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1996 Land Rover Discovery's engine run smoother. See Land Rover's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Discovery in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Land Rover Discovery.

Maintaining your Land Rover Discovery steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Land Rover Discovery steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Land Rover Discovery's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Land Rover Discovery services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Land Rover Discovery cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Land Rover Discovery? You know your Land Rover Discovery better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Land Rover Discovery to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Land Rover Discovery engines.
  •  Why are my Land Rover dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Land Rover Discovery in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
