    Default D4 2011 Manifold Leak

    Hi All

    I have a blowing/hissing sound coming from the engine round about 2000RPM.....I was told that i have a manifold leak (not from the agents...). The good part to this is that the gaskets are cheap BUT they need to lift the body to replace and i'm in for about R30k. It is also due for timing belt replacement as i'm on 165000km.

    Any advice/comments/recommendations will be highly appreciated.

    Can also be a boost leak, on the pipes running to the intercooler and then to the IM

    hi Echo4. I was interested in your outcome. I have just been told the same on the same vehicle at 190000km. was there any surprises, is it a patch job or a replacement part ... as you say the 30k is mostly going to what they say is 15h work. P.s this is from land rover themselves.
    thanks in advance for any input

    Most likely exhaust manifolds gaskets leaking.

    If you get it done,either replace or skim the manifolds, and replace the studs and nuts holding it.

    I might be wrong but I think its possible to do driver side without taking the body off.

    Usually on a D4 is the rear most manifold studs that break. Not body off job
