Land Rover Service Schedule - Defender Disco Range Rover

The Defender has been available in a variety of engines including 2.5L petrol, 2.5L Turbo Diesel, V8, Tdi, Td5 and now the latest Puma 2.4L turbo diesel. Generally speaking the Land Rover Defender service is possible for the DIY service enthusiast. Especially the earlier models pre the Td5 and Puma engines. The later engines and vehicles have a lot more electronics which can make servicing a challenge.

Land Rover Discovery has been available in a variety of engines including V8, Tdi, Td5 and now the latest Discovery 3 and 4 with the TDV6. The Discovery service is possible for the DIY service enthusiast on the Discovery 1 model with the Tdi and V8, while the Discovery 2 with the Td5 and V8 gets a bit more complex. The Discovery 3 and 4 model engines and vehicles have a lot more electronics which can make servicing a challenge and may be better handles by a qualified Land Rover Service Centre.

Early Range Rovers are easily maintained and serviced by the DIY mechanic especially the trusty V8 engine. The later Range Rover are of course filled with electronics so you may need some special Diagnostic equipment to do a proper service.

However to perform a basic Range Rover, Discovery or Defender service all you really need is to know when you need to check what, this you can get from a Defender service schedule. You will need to change the engine oil regularly and replace the fuel filter, engine oil filter and air filter. Then you also need to check the other fluid levels like gearbox oil, transmission oils, brake fluids and steering fluids. The service schedule also lists other routine checks that need to be done. Check below for the relevant oils and fluid quantities as well as the filters that need to be changed. Check the Land Rover Oils article for a detailed explanation of what to look for in a good quality engine or transmission oil.

For any more advanced servicing or Land Rover Repair it is best to consult a Land Rover service and repair guide.
