DRAIN & REFILL Ensure the engine oil is changed at the recommended service intervals as specified in the Passport to Service book.
NOTE: Under severe operating conditions (i.e. regular use in muddy terrain or dusty conditions), the engine oil must be changed more frequently, even to the extent of a daily change. Consult your Land Rover retailer for guidance.
Used engine oil
Prolonged contact with used engine oil can cause serious skin disorders, including dermatitis and cancer of the skin. Wear protective clothing if possible and ALWAYS wash thoroughly after contact.
With the engine warm (to assist oil drainage) and the vehicle parked on firm, level ground, remove the filler cap and position a container of suitable size (at least 6.90 US quarts or 6.60 liters) under the drain plug, in the bottom of the sump.
It is illegal to pollute drains, water courses or soil with toxic chemicals such as used engine oil. Use authorised waste disposal sites to dispose of used oil and toxic chemicals.
Remove the drain plug and copper washer and allow the engine oil to drain into the container.
Oil from the engine can be very hot, to avoid harmful burns, take care when removing the drain plug.
