Kit #: LPW100230SKA Performing Oil Change Service On Freelander 2002-2005, 6-Cylinder Gasoline, North American Specification
Hi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. And in this video we're going to cover one of the maintenance kits that we have available for the 2002 to 2005 Freelander. Which is going to be your oil change kit. Now this is part of our maintenance and repair academy, which we have listed on our website. And you can actually go to our website, download and print this sheet which gives you all of the different maintenance kits we have available for that vehicle. In this video we're going to talk about our oil change kit. This would be kit number LPW100230SKA. Now because this is the one maintenance you're going to do more often than any of the rest, and it is a very important maintenance to do, when you order the kit you're going to get enough for 2 oil changes. It's nice to be able to do the 1 oil change you're ready to do now. When you're ready to do another one just down the road, you already have all your parts and your kits. You save a little bit on the shipping. And it's nice to have everything there for you when you're ready to do it. Because, oil changes can sneak up on you. So, what you essentially get is 2 filters. 2 new drain plugs. And 2 new drain plug gaskets. Relatively easy maintenance to do. A lot of people do them as a, in the driveway, in the garage. Very easy. Very inexpensive. And a huge, huge, huge maintenance item on your vehicle. So, we have a 2002 to 2005 Freelander up in the air. We're going to show you the basics as far as access to the filter and the plug and how to drain your own oil. Okay, so, we have the vehicle up in the air. We're ready to drop this panel. You'll notice that there is a full shield or panel that covers the underside of the vehicle on this. And your choices to access the drain and the fuel filter are either to remove this entire panel, which can get a little bit involved and of course after a while the hardware underneath gets a little bit on the rusty side. Doesn't come out very easy. Or, there are 2 rivets right here that hold the panel to a bracket. And a lot of technicians, especially technicians those that do the oil changes on a regular basis on these Freelanders, will drill these rivets out and just strictly remove them. Once you've taken those out you still have this bolt and bracket holding this in place so it's not going to fall out on you. Then, you just drop this 1 bolt. And the panel just swings down and now gives you access to the oil filter and to the drain plug. But the oil filter, you can get any one of the 3 finger contracting tools, or you can get a cup tool that fits because this is a slotted filter on the end, so they make the little sockets that will fit over the top of those. Your drain plug, which you'll be getting a new drain plug and new gasket. Once you've removed the plug and drain your oil, before you reinstall, make sure you wipe it off and get a nice clean surface on that. Same thing with the oil filter. Always check to make sure that the O Ring on the oil filter didn't stay attached to the bottom side of the flange so that when you go to put the new filter on, you're going to end up with a leak. Always make sure that the old gasket came out with the filter. So it's just simply a screw off screw back in on the filter. Drain your oil. Reinstall your bolt. Now you want to check in your owners manual to see what viscosity oil works best in the region that you live in because there are some minor differences. So always refer to your owners manual, that will also give you the capacity, or how much oil you should use to refill this engine. And that's basically it. That's just an easy maintenance to do. That's very inexpensive. Something you can do in a matter of an hour. And does a world of good to your vehicle. So, when you're ready to do the oil change on your Freelander, this is for 2002 to 2005 with the 3 liter V6. Call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. Thanks for watching.
