2005 Land Rover LR3 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover LR3 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Land Rover LR3 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Land Rover LR3 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover LR3 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
