Here’s Why 1996 Land Rover Range Rover Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Land Rover Range Rover, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Range Rover could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Range Rover, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Land Rover Range Rover!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Land Rover, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Range Rover running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Land Rover Range Rover problems later.

Overview of Essential Land Rover Range Rover Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Land Rover Range Rover for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Range Rover. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Land Rover Range Rover? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Land Rover Range Rover battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Land Rover Range Rover won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1996 Land Rover Range Rover's engine run smoother. See Land Rover's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Range Rover in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Land Rover Range Rover? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Land Rover Range Rover suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Land Rover Range Rover steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Land Rover Range Rover's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Land Rover Range Rover maintenance, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Land Rover Range Rover engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Land Rover Range Rover radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1996 Land Rover Range Rover maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
