Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Land Rover Range Rover

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Range Rover engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Land Rover Range Rover engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Land Rover oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 Range Rover exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
