Re: AdBlue/DEF Range Thread

Have I read this correctly? The latest software update will reduce the AdBlue range of my D180 from approx 7500 miles to 3000 miles? :shock: Just 2,000 for 2019 model year, carry on at this rate and we'll be using more (in costs terms) in Adblu than diesel! Where do these numbers come from? See the...

Re: AdBlue/DEF Range Thread

I have not read through all 50 pages as I have a life lol ;) It as a general rule of thumb, the following is about right, it will vary slightly on driving style etc. 2015/2016 Models - Single Spray Cycle and expect to see up to approx 13000 miles between fill ups. 2017> Models - Double Spray cycle ...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Or..... maybe this one could be genuinely due to driving style. Cold oil, cold engine, drained oil supply channel, get in, start up, accelerate too hard before it has got up to temperature.... repeat 30 times in a month... on days like this... maxresdefault.jpg So we pay £30,000/£40,000+ for a car ...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Further to my earlier post the car is in the workshop today and it is balance shaft problem. Parts are ordered and meanwhile they have replaced rear disc which they say are corroded. Shafts will be there tomorrow and car should be back with me Saturday. That seems incredible judging the amount of w...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

If I've still got me car when it approaches 3 years old I'll make sure I take out a Land Rover extended warranty just for piece of mind, as out of warranty the repairs will cost a small fortune if a new engine is required. Even with the LR extended warranty some repairs may still cost you a small f...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Our DS has been diagnosed with the dreaded balancer shaft whine at 15000 miles. Replacement balance shafts has been offered as the only option. But I have read on the forum about several owners reporting repeat balance shaft problems - suggesting that the problem was not solved by swapping the shaf...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

It's a worry the Velar's only had such low mileage on them, what happens when these cars start clocking up 50,000/100,000+. Plus if they still haven't fixed the problem will replacing the balancer shafts really solve the problem or will it just reappear in another 5,000/10,000 once the bearings fail...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Yes, it'll be interesting to follow the history of this issue, will the number of cars requiring new balance shafts start to decline or not. If not, then let's hope LR hurry up and find a solution to the problem as no other car manufacturer seems to be having similar issues.
