1996 Land Rover Range Rover Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Land Rover Range Rover engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Range Rover’s 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
