Your 2012 Range Rover Sport’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Range Rover Sport may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover Range Rover Sport. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Range Rover Sport engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Land Rover Range Rover Sport engine failure. 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Range Rover Sport spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
