Crank failed at 145K - Warranty Direct ponied up for a replacement engine which was fitted but the dealer I use Cool

Both Warranty Direct and the Dealer (Duckworths) were superb.

Was that recently? I thought that WD didn't cover beyond 130,000.

4 years ago - I think at the time it was called Major Care and it covered 120-160k miles.

crank

hi mate they were made by Peugeot in conjunction with landrover,jlr wanted 3ltr and Peugeot wanted 2.5 so they met in the middle then they uprated to 3ltr for the disco 4 as far as I am aware there are no tags on the mains or bigends and in some cases the bearing shells have turned in the con rods or block and this has blocked the oilways and seized the crank,thats what I am led to believe from different speaciallists mine has only done 78,000 mls but I am told the ones that go are high milage motors why they built them without tags on the shells I don.t know seems a bit silly to me I don,t give mine a lot of work to do and change the oil&filter twice a year I suppose that's all you can do how you run a motor is up to the owner I havn,t heard of any going round here [wait for the posts] weep it well looked after you can,t do any more did you enquire about oil viscosity after your oil change?regs loge.

Mine went from sounding sweet as a nut to sounding like something was flapping under the car to sounding like the engine was full of demented chickens in about 1/2 mile. Found a lay-bye to get pulled over into and that was the last half mile she drove. Big Cry Big Cry Big Cry

Hi
No didnt enquire about oil was on another site that was saying it should be fully synthetic but me thinks thats not the problem the problem is the fact there are no lock tags and you would think lr would know that having supplied the forces for decades i think a cheeky letter to LR HQ is warented
granted an engine wont go on for ever but it shouldnt fail because some Eejit with a pencil didnt draw in a lockplate on big end nuts FM my mini had one back in the 60's me thinks i better holiday with the wifes SX4

I thought the engines although designed by Ford/Peugeot were made and supplied by Ford to JLR.
