Why is Your 2004 Freelander’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Freelander’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Land Rover Freelander transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Land Rover Freelander transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Freelander at all.

2004 Land Rover Freelander Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Land Rover Freelander? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Freelander transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Land Rover Freelander’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Land Rover, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Land Rover Freelander leak transmission fluid? Yes. Land Rover Freelander transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Where can I get my  Land Rover Freelander transmission fixed? If you have a problem with your transmission system, don’t hesitate to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Is it okay to drive a Freelander with a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Freelander to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
