I had trouble finding oil extraction instructions online and thought the following might be helpful. The following outlines instructions related to engine oil extraction on a 2014 - 2018 Range Rover Sport Td6 3.0 Diesel Engine. The oil extraction port is located on the passenger side of the engine. It is a 1/4" metal port, covered by a quarter turn spring loaded cover. After removing the oil fill cap, the engine oil can be extracted by a pneumatic, hand pump or electric pump extractor. A 1/4" ID tube is required to fit over the port. Hot engine oil will full extract in 15 - 20 minutes.

The oil filter or element is handily located atop of the engine, under the engine cover. It requires a 32mm socket or wrench to loosen and remove. Kits are available online, referenced in the below video. Many synthetic oils are available. LandRover has a partnership with Castrol. Be careful to purchase European spec ACEA C2 synthetic oil (made for modern diesel engines with after-treatment exhaust).

I welcome any comments or suggestions regarding the video and hope this helps some owners who prefer to DYI some of their maintenance.

Thanks for the video, but it looks like you put in the incorrect oil - nowhere on the bottle of LiquiMoly does it show the JLR spec, unless I missed it?

According to the workshop manual, this is the oil spec you should be using:
Engine oil vehicles with Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) 5W/30 – WSS–M2C934–B
Engine oil without (DPF) 5W/30 – WSS–M2C913–C

According to LiquiMoly, the TopTec 4500 is the one you should be using, not the 4200: Top Tec 4500 5W-30

Not all 5w30 oils are equal!
