This should give you faith in your engine doing a fair few miles Steve.

IIRC he does services every 6k on his oil and filter and air/fuel filters every other service :)

That is hugely impressive mileage, do you know if its an auto or manual? I doubt an auto box would have gone that distance.

That guy must be on the road 24/7 do to so many miles :lol:

To be fair Will, I can't see mine reaching those 'heady' heights, I only do around 20,000 per yer, going at that rate....... I'll be dead first. :shock: :shock:

Nah theres plenty of life left in you yet Steve!!! :D

Its an Auto Chris :D

Not sure if he has replaced his box but probably does oil changes on it regular enough as its a towing vehicle so spends most of its life with almost another 4-500kg on the back of it...

Im still shocked that new cranks and so on cant be bought for these engines but the deposit rate is going up so much as they are obviously refurbishing them knowing they fail often enough...

PMPL, if you like apple pie pop to sainsburys, get an Apple and Blackberry pie, then get the cheap vanilla ice-cream(circa 80p a tub)

Microwave a 1/3 of the pie in a bowl for about a minute, then cover the pie in ice-cream using a spoon so its not too thick a layer, then pat it down.

leave it for another 1-2 minutes and enjoy :D

For about £3.30 all in its great for night time tv watching with a beer :D :D :D

How can a discussion go so quickly from a high mileage Disco having a new engine fitted to Sainsburys apple pie? :lol:

Sorry to get, kind of, back on topic :roll:

I didn't think the autoboxes in D3s are all that great? My local auto gearbox refurb place says they keep him in business. Mind, he does get them directly from Landrover as an approved repairer. He runs a Range Rover himself, though I suppose he can fix it :lol:
