How Often to Get 2001 Land Rover Discovery Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Land Rover Discovery? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Land Rover recommends changing your 2001 Discovery’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Discovery may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Land Rover if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover Discovery. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2001 Land Rover Discovery Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Discovery engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Discovery’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
