Overview of Essential Land Rover Range Rover Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Range Rover's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Range Rover may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Land Rover Range Rover battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Range Rover stranded. Your Land Rover Range Rover won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 Range Rover. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover? We can help with that, too!

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Land Rover Range Rover's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Land Rover Range Rover services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Land Rover Range Rover’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Land Rover Range Rover? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Land Rover Range Rover to high mileage oil? If your Land Rover Range Rover has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Land Rover dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Land Rover Range Rover in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
