When to Change 2004 Land Rover Freelander Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Land Rover Freelander’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Land Rover recommends changing your 2004 Freelander’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Freelander may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Land Rover Freelander. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Land Rover Freelander Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2004 Land Rover Freelander motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Land Rover has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2004 Land Rover Freelander vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Freelander’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Freelander by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2004 Land Rover Freelander Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Freelander engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Land Rover Freelander 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 Freelander oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Freelander exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
