Change The Oil On A Range Rover Sport 2013

The oil keeps your engine running smoothly. Without it, you will quickly start noticing signs of wears and damages on various parts in the machine which can be very costly later down the line.

A car’s engine is a complex and important machine that can’t run without oil. It does more than just keep the moving parts clean – it also cushions them so they don’t rub together, which would cause debris to fly around. Synthetic oils last longer because of their ability to protect for much longer periods of time as well because synthetic molecules are newer technology designed specifically with high-performance needs like these considerations already built into its makeup from day one.

Oil is an essential ingredient that keeps all the engine’s moving parts running smoothly. Without enough lubrication, friction between these surfaces increases resulting in increased wear and tear, which can lead to breakage or even microscopic metal debris being embedded into other components, causing more damage over time as well.

Oil molecules inside the oil break down and some burn, reducing its viscosity. Synthetic oils with high-quality additive packages last significantly longer than conventional ones but still require scheduled changes every few thousand miles to keep them running smoothly. At MyCar.Repair we recommend Liqui Moly for their advanced use of technology in developing high-quality synthetic oils and products.

How often do i need to change the engine oil of a Range Rover Sport?

One of the most important things to remember about your car is that these big, tough vehicles are sitting in their garages during winter. And because they’re not as young anymore, it’s recommended you change engine oil every spring before summer starts – this helps prevent corrosion from parts inside.

We recommend changing your oil after every winter or 10,000 miles.

How much is the Range Rover Sport Oil Change Cost?

Our Range Rover Sport oil change set includes all necessary products and starts at around 60EUR/51 Pounds. The set includes the necessary amount of 8 litres of Liqui Moly Leichtlauf High Tech 0W-40 and Mahle OX 205/2 D.

There are other products like the Liqui Moly Engine Flush Plus which helps to clean your engine before adding the fresh oils. And a ceramic engine protection additive Liqui Moly Cera Tec that further protects seals and also Liqui Moly Motor Oil Saver, which helps to boost your oil and give it a longer life time.

Still want to get the service and not DIY? Bring the products to your mechanic

This is an excellent way to save money when you need car repairs. The kit includes all the parts needed for your oil change, so there are no expensive extra surprises on top of what was planned and ensures that everything will work properly.

This service will cost you the mechanic labor fee (for 15min to max. 40min at a labour fee rate of 60-90EUR/hr).

Be prepared for mechanics to question the suitability of your car repair products. Some dealerships use phrases such as “we can only use our official products,” which is a way not lose their warranties but you should confidently say yes! Otherwise I would never purchase any from MyCar.Repair.

Step 1 (optional): Clean the engine

Open the engine cover and oil cap, pour one bottle of Liqui Moly Engine Flush Plus into it. Close back up tightly with a twist to release any excess air before starting your car – just make sure you don’t drive after pouring in this concoction because there may be fumes that are dangerous for people sensitive to chemicals like exhaust gas emissions (EGE). Turn off after 15 minutes, then proceed on towards step two.

Step 2: Change the oil filter​

The oil filter housing sits in the frot on the right-hand side. Use the 90mm oil filter remover to remove the cap and filter.

Before you can replace the old filter, pull it off of its cap and clean both pieces with some parts cleaner. Make sure to remove any o-rings from each part so they don’t get stuck when reattaching them later on.

Dress the new o-rings with some new oil and install them onto the oil filter cap. Slide the new filter onto the cap and then reinstall it into the engine.

Re-installing the oil filter in your engine bay

Thread the cap into the housing by hand to prevent any cross-threading. Then, use the 90mm socket to torque the cap to 24Nm.

Step 3: Drain the oil

Open the oil cap to ensure that there is no vacuum during draining. Place jack stands under your vehicle and secure with a lift or jacking mechanism. 

Place a drain pan under the drain plug. Position it farther toward the driver’s side as the oil will shoot out in that direction. Use a 15mm socket to remove the plug.

Clean off the drain plug and then use a copper crush washer to ensure that it fits into your car’s threads correctly. Thread it in by hand first, before tightening with a 15 mm socket which should be torque at 30Nm. 

Step 4 (optional): Fill the ceramic coating additive and Motor Oil Saver

Shake the ceramic coating additive Liqui Moly Cera Tec.

Open the engine cover and remove the oil filler cap. Then pour the additive into the engine oil tank along with your bottle of Liqui Moly Motor Oil Saver.

Step 5: Refill the car with oil

To make sure your car’s engine runs smoothly, it needs oil. Pour 7.5 liters of Liqui Moly Leichtlauf High Tech 0W-40 and let it sit for five minutes before checking to see. It takes some time for the oil to move into the system before you can check the oil level. In the case you did Step 4 and added the ceramic coating a additive, please keep in mind that the 600ml can be counted and deducted from the 8L engine oil volume.

Depending on the result of the dipstick, add in small increments of around 200ml until the engine oil is at the MAX level of the dipstick. Avoid overfilling the engine oil as this causes smoke and other negative side effects. Use a workshop paper towel to clean any oil you may have spilt.

Step 6: Reset the service indicator

Select “Assist Plus” from the menu that appears on the center instrument cluster screen. Confirm that you’ve completed a full service and then hit “OK” twice. The service interval is now reset.
