My turn to put a Range Rover TD6 reliability to the test, I have to take a fridge to Wales this morning so the obvious choice is the RR!

In my opinion the only way to make things better* would be to purchase a mk1 transit fire van for the drive back at 60kph flat out...

At least Essenshire On Ruhr isn’t too far into the Reich. Do the matching EN:GS number plates have a significance?

Aber frohe weihnachten - so viel als möglich.

 

EN is Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis, not Essen. Same difference though.

This Range Rover tended to run cool. Alas it’s got 3 bloomin thermostats (EGR, transmission and main) so potentially a PITA to diagnose. Plus the main is wrapped around the water pump. No thanks.

I removed the EGR coolant circuit and deleted the EGR itself. Thats one thermostat gone. I also copied a common rover 75 diesel mod by fitting a Renault 5 thermostat in the top hose ( not the same engine, but similar architecture as they are both BMW units) result is it now it warms up properly. I celebrated by going to the supermarket where a more valuable cousin parked next to it.....

Yup, EGR delete is an offence on the updated test list as I understand it (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

 

I suppose it all comes down to how sympathetic/absent minded your tester is really.
