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 2004 Discovery’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Land Rover Discovery. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2004 Land Rover Discovery Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Discovery engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Discovery’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Discovery exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
