1998 Land Rover Discovery Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Land Rover's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Land Rover Discovery? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Discovery towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Discovery's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Discovery’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Land Rover's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
