    You should get better readings on a warm engine. With the warm engine the clearance/tolerance are closer to spec than on a cold engine.

    Those figures are low. The figures Jelo quoted are valid...

    Discovery 3 Re: LR3 V8 cooling problems

    Yes 9.3 liters. You don't loose all the coolant when you replace the pump. Some of it will still be in the block. It could easily be 4 liters.

    Re: Discovery V8 mysterious engine noise

    On the Disco 4 yes not on the 3 and it usually makes a rattling noise on startup. In saying that it could obviously still be the chain tensioner but it is not a known issue on the Disco 3.

    I believe its sub-assemblyís only. As Jelo said maybe timing chain or oil pump. I canít think of anything else that can cause a whine.

    So on my Disco the Tara is 2500kg. The GVM is 3200kg. The tow rating is 3500kg but in SA we are restricted to the Tara of the car so I can tow a braked trailer with a GVM of 2500kg.

    Re: FS : Brand New 4 Metre D/Axle Trailer

    To tow a unbraked 750kg trailer the car needs a Tara of 1500kg or more. The empty weight of the trailer does not count, its the GVM of the trailer that needs to be equal or less than the cars Tara.
