Land Rover recommends having your 2008 Land Rover LR2’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your LR2 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover LR2. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Land Rover LR2

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Land Rover LR2? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your LR2’s 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
