How Often to Change 1999 Land Rover Discovery Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Land Rover Discovery? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1999 Discovery’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Discovery may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Land Rover recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Land Rover Discovery. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Land Rover Discovery?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1999 Land Rover Discovery motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Land Rover has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1999 Discovery. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Discovery’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Discovery by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Land Rover Discovery

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Land Rover Discovery? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Land Rover Discovery engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover Discovery oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
