The fluid level obtained will be incorrect if the reading is outside this temperature range." With the GAP tool you can easily read the fluid temp. For those without a GAP tool...

    LR4 Low Compression

    I hope I'm not too late to the discussion, it could be carbon buildup on the back of the valve. With direct injection carbon can build up on the back of the valves and eventually prevent the valves from closing all the way. Pull the intake manifold and inspect the valves. It doesn't take very...

    Change LR4 default vehicle height

    This could be a nice feature. A real OCD owner might not like this. Articulating the lower bushings every time you park could cause premature failure. A guy wouldn't get any sleep a tnight knowing those bushings are under unnecessary tension. haha

    2013 LR4 Home Setting in Navigation

    I see what you are thinking here, you don't want the thief to find your house from the vehicle navigation. I respect that concern, I have thought that too. Don't over think it though.

    DIY Oil Change for LR4

    You are talking about a different style of engine. On an engine with no drain plug and a top mounted cartridge style oil filter (i.e. LR4 engine) I feel that it is best to loosen the filter first. This allows the oil in the filter to drain into the oil pan. Then you can syphon the oil out, once...

    DIY Oil Change for LR4

    Loosen the filter first. Then it will drain while you syphon the rest of the oil out. It makes things a bit cleaner and gets more of the old oil out.
