My brother has a range rover and it gets hot and is losing water, apparently its a common problem but after variously people looking at it the source of the water leak has not been found someone please help as its his pride and joy and a lovely machine but he can't afford a new engine any advice?
Could be a slipped cylinder liner :(
Have a look on www.rangerovers.net - great forum on there
Also have a look at www.landyzone.co.uk.
Is it LPG converted??
Could be a cracked block. How many miles has it covered??
Not lpg just the blood y expensive stuff and i think the mileage is about 80k
the 4.2 is notorious for cracked block/slipped liners "porous block" and would explain why they've found nothing. Unfortunately its the end of the block if thats the case. The 4.0 in my P38 slipped a liner & cost me a fortune, ****ty old engines the 3.9+ rover V8's in all honesty.
RPI engineering might be worth a bell, they're very helpful over the phone (although i dont believe them about the expensive chips they sell)
Could stick a 200tdi in it if theres no repair
