    Re: Range Rover Sport Dillema

    Keep the 4.2V8 and make sure cooling system is in good shape. It will still serve you well.

    The TDV6 has its fair share of problems. Do some googling.

    Same for that TDV8 if it is a 3.6, the...

    Discovery 4 Re: Disco stalled this morning

    Disco 4 V8 has the tendency to gather dust around the throttle body plate which causes them to stall. Remove the intake pipes. Open the throttle body flap and wipe away all the accumulated dust.

    On the 4.2 you can see the exhaust manifolds through the wheelarches. Look for signs of black soot around them. The heat shields strip off quickly for an inspection.

    I agree with changing gearbox oil and filter at +-120000km (less if you tow alot)

    Dealers only do oil pumps when requested.

    Or for the 156k km service and shocks?

    There is no 200000km service on a D4.

    Its either 182k km or 208k km.

    182 is the cambelt service. It's expensive. It eould make sense it they add the waterpump to that service as well as...

    The 3.6 was prone to turbo failures.

    Engine wise the biggest problems is crank seal leaks oil, or oil cooler in the v of the engine leaks oil.
