Motor oil has one job: to lubricate engine parts. However, it contains impurities, and it can capture even more as it greases. That means that, over time, it can accumulate muck. If that isn't bad enough, say your radiator isn't working right. In such a situation, the oil can turn to sludge. The result: oil pump stress, bearing wear, and engine performance problems, and double quick.
Luckily, your Land Rover has a factory oil filter to help keep all that from happening. A housing, medium, and gasket comprise it. The housing attaches and holds the filter to the engine, while the medium captures said pollutants and the gasket closes off the filter from the outside and helps prevent oil leaks.
Unfortunately, no oil filter lasts indefinitely. You'll need to replace the one in your SUV consistently, during every oil change or every other one. That's every 3,000 miles or approximately every 3 months, whichever is reached first. The signs it may be time for a change include:
- Loss of oil pressure
- An engine oil warning light on the dash
- General engine issues
Otherwise, replace the housing gaskets if they get brittle, begin to crack, and oil starts to leak from them. You can access all oil filter parts either from underneath the engine compartment (once you remove the undertray if your SUV has one) or from above the bay itself. Either way, check your owner's manual for more information on this.
Before you go to install a new oil filter, though, be sure you're getting the genuine article.
Why Buy Genuine OEM?
Land Rover designs them specifically for your model. Aftermarket brands, on the other hand, can't necessarily guarantee the required gasket and thread sizes. Using the wrong filter has consequences, too: it can lead to leaking oil, or worse, complete filter detachment, and the latter usually causes some severe engine damage.
