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.”

Your 2011 LR2’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LR2 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Land Rover LR2. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2011 Land Rover LR2 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Land Rover LR2? 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 eventually lead to Land Rover LR2 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover LR2 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
