Your Guide to 1997 Land Rover Discovery Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Land Rover Discovery and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Discovery. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 1997 Land Rover Discovery!

Land Rover knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Discovery perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Land Rover Discovery problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Land Rover Discovery

Bring your 1997 Land Rover Discovery to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Land Rover Discovery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Discovery may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1997 Land Rover Discovery's engine run smoother. To learn how often Land Rover recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Discovery, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1997 Land Rover Discovery.

Routine upkeep for your Land Rover Discovery suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Land Rover Discovery suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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 might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Land Rover Discovery engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Land Rover Discovery? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1997 Land Rover Discovery maintenance.

  • When should I have Land Rover Discovery alignment checked? 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 does my Land Rover Discovery need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Land Rover Discovery? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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.
