Maintenance

OWNER MAINTENANCE In addition to the routine services and inspections referred to previously, a number of simple checks must be carried out more frequently. You can carry out these checks yourself and advice is given on the pages that follow.

Any significant or sudden drop in fluid levels, or uneven tire wear, should be reported to a retailer without delay.

Daily checks

  • Operation of lights, horn, direction indicators, wipers, washers and warning lights.

  • Operation of seat belts and brakes.

  • Look for fluid deposits underneath the vehicle that might indicate a leak (condensation drips from the air conditioning are normal).

Weekly checks

  • Engine oil level. NOTE: The engine oil level should be checked more frequently if the vehicle is driven for prolonged periods at high speeds.

  • Coolant level.

  • Brake fluid level.

  • Power steering fluid level.

  • Screen washer fluid level.

  • Active cornering enhancement fluid level

  • Tire pressures and condition.

  • Operate air conditioning.

All fluid specifications and capacities are shown in ‘LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS’, page 239.

WARNING

If brake pedal travel is unusually long or if there is any significant loss of brake fluid, contact your retailer immediately. Driving under such conditions could result in extended stopping distances or complete brake failure.

Driving in arduous conditions

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Special operation conditions When a vehicle is operated in extremely arduous conditions, more frequent attention must be paid to servicing requirements.

For example: if your vehicle experiences deep wading conditions, even DAILY servicing could be necessary to ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of the vehicle.

Arduous driving conditions include:

  • Repeated short distance driving (e.g. up to 6 miles (10 km), stop-start driving or idling for long periods.

  • Driving in dusty and/or sandy conditions.

  • Driving on rough and/or muddy roads and/or wading.

  • Driving in extremely hot conditions.

  • Towing a trailer or driving in mountainous conditions.

Contact a Land Rover retailer for advice.
