Your Guide to 1998 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, your Discovery could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Just follow your 1998 Land Rover Discovery maintenance schedule!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Discovery's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1998 Land Rover Discovery problems later.

Overview of Essential Land Rover Discovery Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Land Rover Discovery for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Discovery. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Land Rover Discovery. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Discovery may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Land Rover Discovery battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Land Rover Discovery could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Land Rover Discovery running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Discovery. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Land Rover Discovery.

Maintaining your Land Rover Discovery steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Land Rover Discovery's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Land Rover Discovery maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Need a new Land Rover Discovery radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Land Rover Discovery maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Land Rover Discovery, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
