Land Rover Discovery: Fluid Level and Condition Checks

FLUID LEVEL CHECK

NOTE:

The transmission fluid temperature must be between 37ºC (99ºF) and 45ºC (113ºF) whilst checking level. Should the temperature rise above this figure, abort the check and allow the transmission fluid to cool.

This automatic transmission is not equipped with a fluid level indicator. An incorrect level may affect the transmission operation and could result in transmission damage. For fluid level checks refer to the relevant section of the workshop manual. REFER to: Transmission Fluid Level Check (307-01 Automatic Transmission/Transaxle, General Procedures).

FLUID CONDITION CHECK

Use the following procedure to check the fluid condition, which is a good indicator of the internal condition of the transmission:

  1. Check the fluid level.
  2. Observe the colour and the odour of the fluid. Unused fluid is honey colored and becomes dark or blackish after the vehicle is driven a few hundred miles.
  3. Allow the fluid to drip onto a facial tissue and examine the stain.
  4. A small quantity of fine debris is normal (due to normal wear). Large metal particles may indicate excessive wear or internal damage.
