Oil change intervals

Hi everyone.

Because my Freelander 2 is close to 75000 km, I'm wondering, besides the engine oil, what other "oils" I have to replace (differential, gear box, etc.) and what are the intervals.

Looking forward your repplies.

Thank you

CG will suggest cooking oil for the BBQ. Only engine oil the rest will be top up, such as the lubriciant oil etc.

At least CG has a reliable supply of quality chicken for the BBQ.

Don't forget not to be shocked when the new oil turns black almost straight away. Unlike petrol engines which stays quite clean for a while.

This one caught me out - as a newby to diesels - as I was about to challenge the garage - until the great people on this forum put my mind at ease with their knowledge - and wit Very Happy 2007 FL2 GS Manual Army Reconnaissance Green + freel2.com sticker Smile

Yes for the diesel engines is normal for the oil to turn black very fast it's not a problem.

Still, Blacklr said that won't be needed to change other "oils" than the engine oil durring the normal operation - it's only needed to check the oil level in the differentila, gear box, etc. If so, can enyone tell me how to check the oil levels in that parts?

There is a sticky thread in this Maintenance & Modifications section, named "Service schedule".
There you will find all informations that you'll need.

Thank you for the service intervals list.

Can you tell me also how can I check the oil level for differential, gear box, etc. and, if needed, how to top up and what lubricants (oil) is needed for each part?

Thank you!

I wouldnt bother, if your sticking with the LR service schedule you should not need to check transmission oil levels between services.

I have had mine nearly 4 years and have never checked it. I check the oil level from time to time, but it doesnt use any. Freelander 2 HSE Lux 2013MY - Barolo Black with Ivory Leather. Alpine DVD - Privacy -Evoque 20" Dynamic Wheels and more to come.........

Gearbox oil. HOW MUCH?

Hello All,
I've just drained off all the gearbox oil in my 2008 FL2 manual diesel to check it.
According to this thread it should have and did have 1.9 litres in it.
Unfortunately when trying to put the oil back in the gearbox you can only get 1.7 litres in before it runs out of the filler hole!
So do I need to tip the car on its side to get the last 200 ml in or is 1.7litres correct?

Hello fellows

Does anyone know if i can replace my auto - Transmission oil with Castrol TransMax Z instead of Mobil ATF 3309 Automatic Transmission oil? After 100.000km is a good time to change the auto gear oil?

Alex your advises are so helpful

Thank you

Had mine just over a year now. Did a full service when I got it with around 67,000 miles on it. Changed just the oil again at around 72,000 (I get my oil/parts for cost or less at work and do my own repairs Wink ). Changing the oil and filter again tomorrow with just over 75,000 miles on the clock and I've got a tin of engine flush to try out as well. Going to give it a nice long drain while I fit a new set of front pads to try to get rid of my low-speed squeeeeeeeek under light braking so we'll see how clean it is when I put the new oil in. Mr. Green My repair regime might be different if I was paying full price for parts plus labour though. Whistle Past: FL2 TD4 HSE Auto
