    Newbie here...with a 2007 Range Rover HSE. Looking to learn about technical support for my vehicle, and perhaps, I can impart some of my technical expertise as well.

    Best regards,
    Easycool

    Yeppers! Thanks Shaggy for responding to my post. The body and interior are in pristine condition. However, the mechanical leaves a lot to be desired. For example, the upper barb from the recovery tank broke at the "y" hose. Thus the engine overheated. Terrible situation. After block and vacuum tests it's certain that the head gasket and, maybe the sleeve slipped. Compression gasses are leaking into the coolant. A diagnostic check with an Actron CP9690 OBDII, cylinders 3, 4, 5, & 6 ate misfiring.

    So, after exhaustive searching, I found this site and am looking forward to interacting with folks that have Range Rovers. Perhaps we can work together to make our rides the best they can be.

    The "y" hose has been an issue. Ford part that alot of members have hated on and has gone bad with plenty of the LR they own. So is the motor still having issues due to the over heating?

    Replaced the engine at a cost of $7,000+. Then, on test drive, front differential locked up and snapped the driver's CV Axle half-shaft. Not a good thing. These cars are a mechanical nightmare.

    Now the rear suspension leaks down to the bump stops over night. I have no idea where the valve block on my car is. Perhaps someone can tell me how to rebuild/replace it?
