Your Land Rover or Range Rover diesel engine requires the proper oil to protect the advanced diesel injection, turbocharging and emissions systems. In this article we’ll review the specification and available oils.
Land Rover Diesel Oil Requirements
Both the 2.0L diesel engine, used in the Range Rover Velar, and the 3.0L diesel engine, used in the Land Rover Discovery Td6, Range Rover Td6 and Range Rover Sport Td6 are part of the ‘ingenium’ engine family. These advanced engine designs rely on the latest generation injection systems, turbocharging, mutiple stage exhaust gas recirculation, diesel particulate filters and SCR (Aka AdBlue) systems while pushing the boundaries of power and fuel efficiency.
In order to properly protect the 3.0L or 2.0L ‘ingenium’ Land Rover diesel engines the engine oil must be able to
- Withstand extremely high temperatures within the turbocharger without coking or sludging
- Have ultra low ash content to prevent premature ash load in the DPF
- Minimize friction between engine internals
- Minimize pumping losses via smart viscosity
Land Rover 3.0L Td6Oil Specification
The 3.0L engine used in the full-size SUVs, like Disovery, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport Td6 require an oil approved for the Jaguar Land Rover STJLR.03.5005 specification.
