2002 Land Rover Freelander Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Land Rover's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Land Rover? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Freelander’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Freelander's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Freelander’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Land Rover's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Land Rover Freelander leak transmission fluid? Yes. Land Rover Freelander transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing.
