How Often to Change 2003 Land Rover Discovery Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Land Rover Discovery? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2003 Discovery’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Discovery may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2003 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 components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Land Rover Discovery engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Land Rover Discovery oil at home? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Discovery spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
