1988 Land Rover Range Rover Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Land Rover? 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 my Land Rover tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Range Rover’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Range Rover's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Land Rover Range Rover transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
