    Re: Disco 3 tdv6 Engine System Fault

    Read fault codes, otherwise you are just guessing. Could be anything from brake light switch, to rear diff lock motor, etc.

    Re: Discovery3 V8 problems

    Sorry to hear about your headaches. These V8's are really not known for head gasket problems, or any other real flaws for that matter. Not to say it couldn't be the case, but especially without over...

    Discovery 3 Re: V8 Spark Plugs

    Thanks. The cheapest I can find the OEM iridium NGK IFR5N-10 plugs is R250 per plug. Thats a lot of money! But if they last 140k km and work really well it might be worth it I guess.
