Land Rover service schedules

1987 to 1999 model year US market vehicles with 14CUX or GEMS engine management

What should be done, and when: Note that this list of service differs in some respects from the manufacturer service schedule. It is based upon our extensive experience and intended for users who operate their trucks mostly on road, on highway. Drivers who run extensively off road or in water may have different needs. Drivers with modified trucks may also have different needs. This list is intended to serve as a guide only.

3,250 miles

Change oil and filter if you’re using regular oil. Less often and you’ll be building up sludge in the motor. Use a 5,000 mile interval if you're using Mobil 1 or comparable synthetic. For synthetic oil users on stock tires rotate tires every second oil change.
