    Default Disco 3 V8 100.000 km service

    Hey guys,


    Please help me list what I am supposed to be replacing in my 2009 Discovery 3 V8.

    I bought it recently at around 90.000 kms and replaced front Lower control arms as they were bad. I am going for an oil service soon and I depending on the extrac cost I want to anticipate the 100.000 km service to put the car as new as possible now.


    Your inputs will be highly appreciated.

    1. Oil and oil filter
    2. Air filter
    3. Pollen Filter
    4. Petrol Filter
    5. Spark plugs
    6. Brake fluids
    7...

    I would get the front and rear diff oils changed with Ravenol Oils as well as the transfer case oil. All easy DIY jobs which are quick to do.

    I would also consider doing a gearbox flush at ZF themselves... a bit pricey but apparently a must do, estimate about R5000 to R6000 for the gearbox double flush.

    Get the water pump and thermostat housing checked out as well!

    100% agreed

    I have just done my "100,000KM" service on my D3 V8 with 96,000 km on the clock.
    Changed all the oils with Ravenol oil, as I think its a superior oil to its rivals such as LM, Shell, Total etc.

    RAVENOL VSG SAE 75W-90 Front Diff
    RAVENOL MDL Multi-Disc Locking differentials Rear Diff
    RAVENOL Transfer Fluid TF-0870 Transfer case
    RAVENOL FDS SAE 5W-30 Engine oil
    New Plugs
    Air filter
    Decat
    Better exhaust system so it does not sound like an electric car

    Will do a Transmission flush at ZF with Steel filter replacement before December ( Hopefully they will have a special on for the forum members again )

    Does the Disco have a haldex? If so, what about the oil and filter in there?
