Land Rover recommends having your 2002 Land Rover Discovery’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Discovery in the above table. Outside of Land Rover-recommended oil change intervals, your Discovery may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

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

2002 Land Rover Discovery Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Land Rover Discovery motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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.
  • 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
