2002 Land Rover Discovery Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Land Rover Discovery

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2002 Land Rover Discovery. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Discovery’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Land Rover, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Discovery’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Land Rover Discovery

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2002 Land Rover Discovery. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Discovery. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Discovery. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Discovery can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Land Rover Discovery Tune-Up?

If you’re looking for 2002 Discovery engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Land Rover’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2002 Land Rover Discoverys

  • Will it hurt my Land Rover Discovery to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Land Rover Discovery mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Land Rover Discovery engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
