Land Rover service schedules

1999 to 2003 Discovery II and 99-02 Range Rover models with Bosch 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.

Bosch Rovers do not have replaceable fuel filters. Other service tasks are simplified as compared to older Land Rover products.

When "Service Engine" comes on
The Service Engine light comes on when there is a problem with the engine management system, the fuel evaporative control system, or the interface with the electronic transmission controls. You can check and clear codes with an OBD II scan tool after performing the necessary repairs. 

1,000 - 3,250 miles if using non-synthetic oil
