I found a really mint looking, clean title, Range Rover at the Copart Salvage auction; so I bid and won it for only $1,400. It was marked as a non running nor driving car, so I started taking stuff apart and here's what I found.

      Dude, it's easy... Remove cylinder heads, Turn upside down, fill combustion chambers with beer, water,...(where valves are seated) Leave sit 1,2,3...hours; if water goes down, troubles, look for cracks between valve seats, big troubles, Usually its just a bad valve or worn seat leaking, pull it out and Lap it in with suction-cup-stick & valve grinding compound for 100 percent compression. I pay $40 Canadian$ (-33% for USD lol) at a professional engine shop to take minimal amount off surface (plane). Some guys do it with sandpaper over flat piece of glass. $40 is good deal for me not to work that hard... Use engine rebuild lube to reassemble. Cam and Crank lobes and bearings must be lubed or No oil pressure will exist or be capable upon initial start-up. Oil pump needs that lube to create suction. Plastiguage a couple journals and caps prior to reassemble torque. Keep head and block mating surfaces super clean, don't touch head gasket surface either, use prep spray. Boom! That Range Rover HSE 4.3 Bosch timing guides set and water pump should be replaced and your issue likely started from a bad thermostat, and same for any replacement used engine change timing guides, or, failure is imminent. Finally replace oil sump tube with 2-piece upgrade so you can remove oil pan in future without breaking it, makes job easier and not have to remove or lift engine. I want to see someone put a ford, dodge or chevy engine in that baby, and make it work. WoW

    Land rovers were once the most reliable off road 4WD vehicles. But not now Range Rovers specifically are some of the most unreliable cars ever. The basic land rover was simple then they yuppiefied it in the 80s and bought out the Range Rover utter crap from the word go!

    Here in England they are known to be the biggest pile of shit ever to hit the tarmac.... PS, I do own a 300 tdi Discovery, one of the most reliable Land Rovers ever. But Range Rovers etc are unreliable and should only be used as an anchor.

    These things are a complete nightmare once they get past 3 or 4 years old..... and that comes from a Brit. A friend of mine bought a 12 year old RR, looked the business. Was ok for a few weeks then went bang. Was going to cost a packet to fix. I don't thing he bothered fixing it and sold it for spares. You've no doubt heard this, but there's a saying. "If you want to drive across Africa, take a Land Rover, but if you plan on returning, take a Land Cruiser"........ Jeez, this thing is a load of work. Get it running and sell it on......

    You may have gotten this cheap, but everyone knows that Land Rovers are money pits over time. I mean seriously. Go watch Scotty Kilmer's channel. He hates Land Rovers (as well as most other vehicles, unless it's a mid-90's toyota Celica) but he absolutely hates Land Rovers, and most people do. I would buy almost anything else before I bought a Land Rover (I'd buy a BMW before I bought a land rover). This is of course the newer ones. If you were to buy one from, say, the late 80's or earlier that might be different as many vehicles made in the 80-90's were very reliable because they used less electronics, sensors and computers to run.
