How Often to Change 2018 Land Rover Discovery Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Land Rover Discovery? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Land Rover recommends having your 2018 Land Rover Discovery’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Land Rover recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Land Rover Discovery?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Land Rover Discovery. Land Rover has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2018 Land Rover Discovery vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Discovery's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Discovery by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Land Rover Discovery

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Discovery engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, 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 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 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
