Range Rover: Fluid level checks - Range Rover Owner's ManualRange Rover: Fluid level checks


Check the engine oil weekly. If any significant or sudden drop in oil level is noted, seek qualified assistance.

If the message ENGINE OIL PRESSURE LOW is displayed, stop the engine as soon as it is safe to do so and seek qualified assistance. Do not start the engine until the cause has been rectified.

Prior to checking the oil level ensure that:

  • • The vehicle is on level ground.
  • • The engine oil has reached working temperature (oil is hot).
  • • The engine has been switched off for 10 minutes, as the system will not give an accurate reading until the oil level has stabilized.

The oil level can then be checked as follows:

1. Switch on the ignition (do not start the engine).
2. Ensure Park (P) is selected.
3. Select the Service menu using the driver information module menu control (see 55, INTERACTIVE CONTROLS).

Select Oil level display from the Service menu. The current oil level status and topping-up advice is displayed in the instrument panel, top-up as instructed. An indication of the oil level is displayed in the gauge. Messages to the right of the gauge advise you of any action you may need to take.

If the oil level is within the required operating range, the message Engine Oil

If the oil level is within the required operating range, the message Engine Oil Level OK will be displayed. Do not add any additional oil to the engine.

If the oil level is below the required operating range, a message advising you how much oil to add will be displayed (e.g. Add 1 Pint). Add the recommended quantity of oil.

If the message Engine Oil Level Overfilled is displayed, seek qualified assistance immediately. Do not drive the vehicle as this will cause serious damage to the engine.

If the message Engine Oil Level Underfilled is displayed, add 3.2 U.S. pints (1.5 liters) of oil, then recheck the level.

If the message Engine Oil Level Not Available is displayed, the oil level is stabilizing. Switch off the ignition, wait 10 minutes, then recheck the oil level display.

If the warning message ENGINE OIL LEVEL MONITOR SYSTEM FAULT is displayed, seek qualified assistance.
