    Hi Jelo

    British4x4 and LR Spares (Benoni) have a steady stream of D3 TDV6 vehicles coming in to be scrapped due to engine issues. You can also contact CME (André).

    Or you can buy online:

    Check in this thread, specifically posting of 21st August 2012 by NJSS, gives some very good info. Certain parts are also available from ebay.

    kind regards

    Hi MacA

    before stripping out the gearbox, make 100% sure, that the CV joints are in good shape.

    It's a very good chance that the torque converter is the problem, normally shudders upon acceleration and at times has the rev counter bounce up and down like its has a pulse.I recommend a new converter with new filter and a valve body service.

    Is there a difference between the Disco 4 TDV6 and Disco 3 TDV6? Or will the Disco 4 be prone to similar engine failures?
