How Often to Change 2000 Land Rover Discovery Oil

Need more info about 2000 Land Rover Discovery oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2000 Discovery’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Discovery in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Discovery may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Land Rover recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover Discovery. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Land Rover Discovery motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Discovery by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

2000 Land Rover Discovery Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Land Rover Discovery? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Land Rover Discovery engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Land Rover Discovery oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Discovery spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
