    I am sorry to hear this. I'd be equally bummed about this.

    That fully sucks, a newer SC model too. Another satisfied Land Rover customer!

    assuming you do a diagnosis, im very interested to hear why there was such an unexpected catastrophic failure.

    That sucks, man. If it is in such great shape, it maybe worth something decent with a "new" engine. At the very least you could keep it going yourself. It's all up to the actual cost to repair, of course.

    I seem to remember mention of a failure mode similar to this years ago.

    Basically coolant line ruptures and dumps coolant, no warning on dash because coolant no longer reaching temp sensor and then block gets cooked as a result.

    Wow. Really shocked to hear about this especially on a scv6. Sounds like you blew a coolant line and over heated the engine and eventually blew the block. If you want to save the car I’d say your best bet is a used scv6, if that’s even worth it. So sorry to hear about this and my prayers go out to you.

    wouldn't a failed crossover pipe cause an overheat issue before other significant failure? shouldn't the temp gauge of showed this nearly immediately?

    There is a significant more amount of time between loss of coolant and block failure to the point of oil being spewed around the engine bay. OP says it was only 1/4 mile from 1st sign to complete chaos.

    I'm just wondering if you would even see a low coolant warning light before failure? I know when my water pump main bearing seal failed whilst driving along, I got a low coolant light before anything critical happened. I was able to pull over quick and walk to an Autozone for coolant. Got though almost 5 gallons in the 1/2hr drive to the dealership.
