    2016 LR4 Coolant Crossover, Water Pump, Thermostat Replacement

    5 minutes is amazing to disconnect that awful little guy! Nice work. But yes even with pulling all of that stuff off, getting anything done on the back side of that engine is an exercise in patience and pain tolerance.

    2016 LR4 Coolant Crossover, Water Pump, Thermostat Replacement

    This thread is worth a bump, and @txfromwi needs a big thank you for this video. I'm comfortable with tools, but have never done anything really more complicated than changing tires, oil, battery, etc... Real novice level stuff. I talked a retired buddy with plenty of wrenching experience...

    It's time for a rear cross-over pipe talk. What to do about the backorder?

    Tomorrow is the day. I ended up going through EuroAMP. They are the guys doing the metal front crossovers, and the Jag guys seem to think well enough of them. The rear crossovers were out of stock for a bit with them as well, but they came back in and I pulled the trigger. Before I did I...

    It's time for a rear cross-over pipe talk. What to do about the backorder?

    Not really. Your post illustrates the market pretty well I guess. The 2nd link is already sold out, maybe they were available when you posted. But $159 with free shipping is a fair price. The second link is for $268 with free shipping. Still tempting in this backorder market I guess, but...

    It's time for a rear cross-over pipe talk. What to do about the backorder?

    I have not yet called every vendor, but those that I have called have all been out of stock even though the web and sometimes their own internal systems have said otherwise. I have been drained of optimism. But I’ll continue to call a couple a day. It makes me wonder if they actually do...

    It's time for a rear cross-over pipe talk. What to do about the backorder?

    I don't want my engine to blow. I've got a leak, definitely coming from the backside. You can't get LR122710 anywhere right now. What do I do? Is there a suitable aftermarket solution? Thoughts? Prayers? I guess we might be a one car family for a bit?

    Wheels and Tires?

    I second the Defender steelies. If you search craigslist or Facebook marketplace for the steelies off of the new Defender there are some pretty good deals out there. I run the with 265/65/18 KO2s and they fit great, but FYI its a HEAVY setup, like 100lbs per corner. If you don't like white...

    Replaced my AMK Compressor with a new one today. Now my venting is almost embarrassingly loud.

    Thanks for the replies. The elbow fitting for the exhaust blew right off the compressor. It’s not a break, just like it was never cemented on. I’ll look into a proper cementing adhesive and it should be a quick fix. Thanks again for being a sounding board and offering some some solid advice.

    Replaced my AMK Compressor with a new one today. Now my venting is almost embarrassingly loud.

    I'm a noob so I might have done something wrong but it's a pretty straightforward forward job. It vents loud when going to access mode. When I go up to off-road mode there's a quick pressure release when the compressor reaches appropriate pressure. It's loud enough that I might startle...

    RESOLVED - Seeking License Plate Holder/Frame

    I was looking for something similar and opted for a bracket from Skene Design. You do have to screw into the bumper, but not on the horizontal face so if removed there would be no visible holes. I bought the Medium size and it works great. https://skenebrackets.com/products/license-plate-bracket

    First Oil Change Notes

    I had read that but upon giving it a go myself none appeared to fit like I expected so I went the adapter route. I'll have to make another attempt at fitting just the hose over the tube next time.

    First Oil Change Notes

    I bought a 2016 sight unseen from a Lexus dealer across the country back in January. The one owner truck had a service package and was consistently maintained at the local JLR dealer for the initial 69k miles. Everything has been good, zero mechanical issues so far. The Lexus dealer did an...

    1200 RPM Hum

    I'd love to figure out how to better reinforce the weak spot. It's easy enough to fix but it's still money I'd rather save to spend on something else. Maybe some JB Weld Ultra Heat Repair Wrap, not necessarily to fix it, but maybe to strengthen those parts. I really have no experience with...

    1200 RPM Hum

    This forum is amazing. I'm a couple of months into owning my first Land Rover but I feel like a pro because even obscure low RPM rattles can be identified here by this super knowledgeable community, even including the TSB. I popped my heat shield off today and sure enough one of the "legs"...

    Start/Stop ECO question

    As it relates to the amber no eco light. Is it standard for this light to come on when in sand and rock crawl modes. It doesn't come in any of the other modes, just those two. I'm a first time LR owner, and I'm like ving the truck, but the yellow light makes me a bit nervous.

    SAD ENDING TO OUR LR4

    That's hard to look at. There's a lot of value that's hard to quantify with that rig. 2013 in a hard to find color. It'll be a tough one to replace. Good to hear that that the Rover kept you all safe.

    Crazy I know but any 19" wheel suggestions?

    Yeah, I would look for used. Even the defender rims come up for a decent price one in a while. I have thought about the Tuffants, but was initially put off because they weren't available. They are a little lighter then the defender steelies. I should look at them again and check my patience...

    Crazy I know but any 19" wheel suggestions?

    I know everybody in here wants to go to 18" wheels, please humor my madness. I have been planning to grab some 18" White Defender Takeoffs and throwing some KO2s on there and being totally off road ready. I'm now trying to think a little more practically and am sort of coming around to 19s...

    Considering an LR4. Would you buy one at 100k mileage?

    I just bought one. 2016, 60k miles, HD package, Vision Assist, and a factory front skid! Pretty much every option but the LUX seats, $35k. I feel like I did my research and hope I found a good one, but only time will tell. It’s single owner with a good history of service at the JLR dealer it...

    Adding Adaptive Cruise to LR4

    I second this. They go over everything in pretty fine detail. I plan on adding it to mine in the next few months. If you aren't sure if yours is wired already, they discuss the presence of a fuse that otherwise wouldn't be there. I believe it was number 7 in the driver's side box. I...

    New to Land Rover - Bought an LR4

    Thanks for the replies. The warranty was third party through American First Auto Protect. It was $3,200 for and additional 60k miles or 51 months. $0 deductible. It was their year end special, which lowered the overall cost, removed the deductible and added 3 months. I ran him through the...

    New to Land Rover - Bought an LR4

    Hi everyone. I’m a bit obsessed with this forum and this vehicle. It’s not even in my driveway yet, but it’s on it’s way. I just wanted to thank the group for being a tremendous resource throughout the process of finding and purchasing this vehicle. I feel like I’ve never purchased a vehicle...
