Land Rover Discovery Sport Maintenance Schedule
If you’re the proud owner of one of these adventurous SUVs in the Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and South Valley areas, it’s important to stay up to date on your Land Rover Discovery Sport maintenance needs. To help you know when to bring your vehicle in to the dealership for routine service, our team at Land Rover Albuquerque has put together this guide!
Every 16,000 Miles
The 16,000-mile service appointment is a very important one, because this is when you’re due for your oil change. Make sure to have this done regularly, and never go more than one year between oil changes.
Oil is crucial in keeping your engine at its best, as it’s what lubricates the rapidly moving parts, and regulates the temperature by dissipating heat. Operating with old or dirty oil can result in decreased efficiency, and eventually, some serious damage.
The good news: As long as you get your oil changed at regular intervals, your engine is likely to be in tip-top shape for many, many years. The technicians will also replace the engine oil filter and conduct a road test at this time to ensure everything else is in working order.
Each time you hit 32,000 miles, you’ll once again be due for your 16,000-mile oil change. You should also replace the air cleaner element and pollen filter at this time; this will prevent any debris or plant particles from the environment from getting into your engine compartment.
Land Rover Discovery Sport Maintenance at 48,000 Miles
At the 48,000-mile mark, you’ll want to change the brake fluid. This is important in ensuring proper braking, especially if you’re an adventurous type who likes to give your SUV a real challenge. You should also complete your 16,000-mile service again during this visit.
65,000 and 96,000 Miles
When you hit the 65,000-mile mark, you’ll be due for another oil change. You should also replace the pollen filter, engine oil filter, and air cleaner element.
When you’re due for your 96,000-mile service, you should replace your brake fluid too. At this service visit, also replace all flexible brake hoses; these hoses have the important job of carrying brake fluid to the caliper so that you can brake properly. In addition to replacing these every 96,000 miles, they should also be checked regularly for any holes.
128,000-Mile Maintenance for Your Land Rover Discovery Sport
As you reach 128,000 miles, you and your Land Rover Discovery have probably spent many happy years together. Continue to keep it in great shape by getting your 16,000- and 32,000-mile service at this time. You will also need to replace your spark plugs to ensure your engine continues working properly for even more years.
At the 144,000-mile mark, you’ll want to change the following fluids:
- Engine oil
- Automatic transmission fluid
- Brake fluid
- Rear locking differential oil
- Transfer box oil
You will also need to replace the accessory drive belt and engine oil filter, and have a road test conducted by the technicians.
Maintenance at 160,000 Miles
At 160,000 miles, it’ll be time to change the engine coolant. This is important for temperature regulation, and it can help prevent your engine from overheating.
