When to Change 2002 Land Rover Freelander Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Land Rover Freelander’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Land Rover recommends having your 2002 Land Rover Freelander’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Freelander may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Land Rover Freelander. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2002 Land Rover Freelander Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Land Rover Freelander? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Freelander’s 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Freelander spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
