1997 Land Rover Range Rover Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Land Rover's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Land Rover? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Range Rover is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Range Rover transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Range Rover’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
