1987 Land Rover Range Rover Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Land Rover's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Land Rover Range Rover? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Range Rover’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 Range Rover’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Land Rover. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
