    Hi, just joined up, I bought a 4.4 V8 L322 last October. Since then put about 2000 miles or so on and then it decided that the honeymoon period was up and started playing up! (as anything Landrover does!

    Engine is noisy, coolant expansion tank popped, suspension is playing up, and it needs a bit of bodywork tending to it.

    All in all, just what a Rangey usually becomes - a project, hobby, something to keep you out of the house!

    So, my next task is to trawl the forums and see what advice the old and bold and knowledgeable among you can tell me about how to fix my problem child motor car!

    Cheers for now!

    Sorry to hear your woes. On what you have said I would investigate head gaskets and liners for your vehicles engine in the search bar. Sounds like what you are experiencing.

    There will be plenty of help and advice for you here, welcome

    To be fair I was going to have a look at the vanos units and timing chains first as there was a fault code for one bank stored in the ECU. If no joy there, then I'll dig deeper.
