I know the Evoque manual states that a 5W-30 oil meeting WSS-M2C913-C must be used. As I am sure most of you have found out, there isn't an easy way to find an oil that has that specification on the label. I think the Castrol Edge Professional which you can't easily purchase is about the only option. However most oils I have look at mention the WSS-M2C946-A specification. I have looked to see how these specifications are related to see if one supersedes the other but I haven't found anything. But I did look in a 2015 Ford Fusion owner's manual and saw that for the 2.0L Ecoboost the specification mentioned is 5W-30 WSS-M2C946-A. Since this is the same motor I am sure the WSS-M2C946-A oils will work fine, however I wonder if Land Rover could refuse to honor the warranty if there is an engine issue and I didn't use the WSS-M2C913-C oil? From what I have read in the past they would have to prove that somehow using the different oil caused the problem, but I was wondering if anyone else had an more info. Thanks.

I have a MY13 Evoque Pure Plus Coupe. During the warranty period I had the dealer change the oil, so there could be no issues if I had a problem.
You may want to consider doing the same.

I just did my first at home oil change. I used Castrol EDGE Extended Performance 5W-30, and a Fram XG3614 oil filter. The Fram XG series in specifically designed to be used with full synthetic oil. I'm not worried about not using the Castrol Professional oil. It's not easy to find.

Thanks. I was planning on that same oil with the Mobil 1 M102-A filter.

So I assume you didn't buy an extended warranty? I would like to buy one that goes to 100,000 miles but they can be very expensive. But it seems everyone I talk to thinks I should buy one.

No, I didn't buy an extended warranty. You're betting you are going to have a problem, the warranty company is betting you don't:). I guess I'm willing to take the risk. Our Evoque only does about 2,000 miles a year. A garage queen, and grocery getter for the wife.

Mine will be a regular driver, but in the past I put about 9000 per year on my G35 and about 3000 on my small pickup. For now I still have that car and will drive it when it rains. But I expected no more than 10,000 per year. I have never owned a LR before, but hear lots of bad stories. I guess regardless of the reliability, one issue is the cost of repair, but I guess that is why the warranties are so expensive for this car.

Does ANYONE have a link to an oil change on a 2016 Evoque HSE? I searched the web to no avail and would really appreciate a link for my year and model. Thanks so much!

I actually bought a complete oil change kit for my 2016 Evoque HSE from Atlantic British includes everything here's a link:Includes Land Rover Genuine Oil Filter, 6 Quarts Castrol Edge Professional 5W/30 Oil And Reminder Sticker Castrol Edge Professional is the way to go! I had a question and customer service replied to my email within 15 minutes which in my world at least is unheard of. I also bought my first creeper from Griots garage called the Cadillac of creepers but should be called the Land Rover of creepers, and 2 front plastic ramps from walmart (these) RhinoGear 11909ABMI RhinoRamps Vehicle Ramp - Pair (12,000lb. GVW Capacity). I never used ramps before it's the only part that makes me a little un-nerved. How bout you all, how do you lift your Rovers?

Last year I installed a Dannmar MX-6 lift in my garage and I used that. When I was replacing the turbo myself I saved more than enough money to pay for the lift.
WoW, I looked it up, that is some piece of equipment, niiiice! I'm a little claustrophobic and being under my LR on my back (wife already said creeper looks like a gurney so they can just wheel me off) and picture torqueing on a bolt and the thing coming down on me... hopefully once I do it my fears will dissipate....

Here in oz the Penrite brand has a good website you can get specifications from pretty easily and search by specs. What i'm going to post is an educated guess of course, since I' no specification expert, but this is what it looks like in my opinion from what I can glean from the web:
1) I could only find full synthetic oils conforming to the '913' specs
2) For '946' specs there was a semi-synthetic option.
3) The oils conforming to 913 specs were also noted to conform to ACEA A3/A4 spec for 'out of warranty' service. So it's basically suggesting to you that the ACEA A3/A4 spec is included in the ford 913 spec.
4) From what I can see from oil specification websites the ACEA A3/A3 or A4 is a 'stay-in-grade' long life year round low viscosity oil.

I'm speculating, but I reckon you can't meet spec 913 requirements from a semi or multigrade oil yet. So I'm suggesting that perhaps the oils meeting 913 spec could well be a more stringent spec than 946. Also worth noting is that the 913 spec oils were suitable for Fords wet timing belts (which i don't think we have) but evidently if you dodged that spec in your wet timing ford you may have an issue. I think it's worth sticking with the 913 spec if you can unless you've dug into it deeper than I have and explain a bit better. One thing is for sure, I would be changing the oil at half the interval if i put an alternative in that didn't meet that spec. For many of us home mechanics we tend to change oil more often than service intervals anyway so dropping the 'long life' specifications is a common thing to do to save a couple bucks. But seems to me to be counter-productive when you can just buy a better oil that lasts longer. I think we are at the stage where oil technology has rendered multiple oil changes obsolete now, and it's probably more environmentally friendly to buy the best oil at the higher specs and stick to the recommended service intervals with it.

EDIT:

A little more research found this:
"Ford WSS-M2C913-B: The Ford M2C913-B specification is released in Europe for initial fill engine oils used for lubrication of spark ignition engines using gasoline and for compression ignition engines using diesel fuels. The specification is also used to define engine oils for servicing Ford engines where applicable. The oil shall meet all the requirements of the ILSAC GF-2 and GF-3 specification, the ACEA A1-98 and B1-98 specification and additional Ford requirements.
Ford WSS-M2C913-C: Fully backwards compatible and is strongly recommended for all applications that currently require the specification Ford M2C913-B. The new engine oil provides various benefits to the customer such as improved fuel economy benefits and high robustness to biodiesel fuels. "

Ford 913-D spec is improvements for Diesel engines so I wouldn't be too bothered about that one.

The more I look into this the more inclined I am to hunt down spec WSS-M2C913-C specifically actually. None of this answers your question on warranty sorry!

Hi Friends,
I bought a certified 2016 RR Evoque SE gasoline in Feb 2020 with an extended warranty until Sep 2022.
this car is currently due for service (52000kms. /Canada/ Montreal/Quebec)

The dealer ship quoted 750 ( Oil change+filter + Air/ cabin/ pollen filter and routine checkup)

But since I am planning to sell this vehicle sooner or later, hence looking for some after-market parts( Castrol synthetic oil + FRAM/Mobile 1 filters etc). I know the dealership will check all the mechanics/electronics of the car during this service but the after-market guy won't. I am a bit scared if this might void my warranty in the future run.

Moreover, JLR recommends Castrol edge Pro C1- A5 5w-30 which is available only at the dealership not anywhere else. I am getting Castrol Edge Extra performance oil 5w-30 in nearby stores.
my other trusted garage is SHELL but they use only SHELL products.

Need your expert advice on :
1. if I should go to the dealership or other garage ( CT/Shell ..)??
2. If other garages, can I use equivalent SHELL oil instead of CASTROL ??
3. If not SHELL, can I use Castrol edge Extra perf oil instead of Castrol edge pro??

I am totally confused and need your expert advice.

Hello!

Liqui Moly SPECIAL TEC F 5W-30

APPROVALS:
  • ACEA A5
  • ACEA B5
  • Ford WSS-M2C 913-D
  • Jaguar / Land Rover STJLR.03.5003
LIQUI MOLY RECOMMENDS THIS PRODUCT FOR VEHICLES THAT NEEDS TO COMPLY THE FOLLOWING SPECIFICATIONS:

It wasnt hard to get here (even in Argentina), and while not being cheap, it wasnt overpriced either.
