    Coolant Levels Dropping Slowly - No Visible Leaks

    There’s a coolant hose under the inlet manifold that can leak coolant and it can pool on the top of the block. It can also get into the oil and I had elevated levels of silicates when I had an oil analysis done at the time.

    Storage Mod

    Yeah it makes a huge difference having the extra space and there’s actually sort of two compartments back there. I’m actually missing some clips so my rear floor panel just lifts right up.

    Storage Mod

    There's something like 6 torx bolts to remove the rear seats and you can have them out within 20 minutes, nothing else required. They're heavy and awkward to remove, so you'd want two people ideally. No airbag connections to remove and I just zip tied the seatbelts out of the way. I have a full...

    Broken coolant return ****** and fix

    I took both side caps off the radiator so I could recycle the aluminum core. It’s a shame really, as there’s nothing wrong with any of it except for the rotten area of plastic at the hot end of the radiator. Note the broken plastic remnants. The side with the trans cooler was in perfect condition.

    LR3 BMS Reset for Battery AGM Charging

    I’ve been running an Odyssey AGM for the past two years without any problem at all. Interstate batteries never seemed to last. I have a short commute and I think it’s important to use a charger every other weekend to keep things topped up. I use a CTEK MXS 5.0.

    Broken coolant return ****** and fix

    Just to close this thread off. I replaced the rad and all the coolant hoses this weekend. Not an especially difficult job generally, but fiddly and getting the rad out is a real pita! Radiator top fittings were completely rotten, in addition to the plastic T that feeds it. All the other hoses...

    Broken coolant return ****** and fix

    Lucky! It’s definitely indicative of the plastic rot due to age. I’m replacing the rad and all the hoses this weekend. Just as well, as you can actually see coolant weeping through the plastic tee piece that connects to the large hose at the top of the radiator. Looks like it’s from where the...

    Coolant Level Question

    I think it’s less likely to be a bad level sensor, although it certainly could be, and more likely to be the float in the coolant tank that stops floating and thus giving false readings. At least this has been my experience.

    Broken coolant return ****** and fix

    I have to admit I was getting a bit suspicious about the cooling system. The hoses all look fine, but the plastic connector pipes, which look like some sort of glass filled nylon, seem to absorb coolant over time and crumble. I think it’s reasonable to expect to have to replace these after 15...

    Broken coolant return ****** and fix

    I’d literally just replaced the broken plastic bleeder tee and then immediately proceeded to break the coolant return ****** from the top of the radiator, by merely looking at it, it seems. After 15 years and 140k it seems the plastic has turned to mush. I’ve made a temporary fix by threading...

    Fool me once... bleeder tee

    Just a friendly reminder to all the V8 LR3 owners to change the crappy plastic coolant bleeder tee on the top of the engine. It’s a ticking time bomb and this is the second one that’s failed on me. The first one, which I assumed was the original, broke at 86k just after I bought the truck. I’m...

    Replacement Shocks

    Airbags can leak, which is an obvious failure mode but I think it’s important not to overlook the dampers, which also wear out. I replaced all four corners with Arnott at 140k miles on my 2006 LR3, mainly because one of the front airbags was leaking due to the rubber bladder perishing. The rear...

    Storage Mod

    No Jeeps as of yet, but I have recovered a stuck Dodge Avenger with bald tires from out in Anza-Borrego. Was a real pain as it seems some manufacturers have stopped bothering to put recovery points on their cars.

    Storage Mod

    I found all the 5 seater rear floor parts on Craigslist for $50 so removed the third row seats from my LR3. I love having the storage and it’s better than hauling 150lbs of useless seats everywhere!

    LR4 - LCA - Longevitiy/Diagnostic

    No lube, apart from some dish soap to fit them. Had to whack them in with a mallet. You don't want them rotating in the arms, so using grease is a bad idea and Polybush doesn't recommend it. I've had them fitted for a couple of months now and they're completely silent.

    LR4 - LCA - Longevitiy/Diagnostic

    I was also hesitant to fit orange LCA poly bushes to my LR3 due to all the negative comments about them, but I'm glad I gave them a shot and for $150 a complete bargain. It's obviously subjective, but I'm very happy with them. I fitted them myself by drilling out the old bushes with the LCAs...

    2006 LR3 Starting issues

    I had a P0345 camshaft position sensor error a few weeks ago when my LR3 also failed to ‘catch’ on starting. Definitely not a bad sensor and down to low battery voltage. In my case, one of my front struts was leaking air causing the compressor to run way more than usual and as a result my...

    Permanently remove the factory installed A-Bar protection frame

    There’s two versions of the A-frame one bolted from the front, one from the back. Yours sounds like it’s bolted from the back.

    Bluetooth Upgrades

    I fitted a Kinivo BTC450 to my LR3 a few years ago and it's been great. I stuck the controller just behind the parking brake switch.

    Battery life

    I've gone through three Interstate Megatron H8 batteries in the four years I've owned my LR3 and they've all failed when it gets cold, which in San Diego isn't really saying much. I also have a Traxide dual battery setup with an Optima yellowtop and a National Luna battery monitor. The voltages...
