When to Change 1988 Land Rover Range Rover Engine Oil

Need more info about 1988 Land Rover Range Rover oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1988 Range Rover’s oil should be changed according to Land Rover’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Range Rover in the above table. Outside of Land Rover-recommended oil change intervals, your Range Rover may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Land Rover recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Land Rover Range Rover. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1988 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 your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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 Range Rover oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Land Rover Range Rover exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
