Thanks for this. I posted this over on DISCO5.co.uk and attributed it to this forum.
There are far better forums to be welcomed at than this one that locks threads because certain members can’t take a bit of criticism :roll:

Also shared on RRS forum where one guy was told the oil on his RRS (3.0TDV6) was fine despite service light coming on after 4500 miles so he had Millers analyse it and it came back with a dilution factor of 8.5% :o

This is after his car only being serviced previously at 16,000 miles and 32,000 miles. Has set alarm bells ringing as to what damage might have occurred during the first 32,000 miles or whether dealer changed oil at all at 32,000 mile service. Sounds as though he had to be quite firm with the dealership to get them to change the oil after the Millers analysis since they were insistent that the service request was a "just a software problem"

Does anyone have experience with what the engine whine sounds like ?

I get a noise which sounds like a worn wheel bearing sometimes, but to be frank I figured it was just a misaligned wheel

It sounds like a whine (or even a turbo whistle) that follows the engine revs from above 1500rpm. Can be heard inside the vehicle when driving with the radio off (radio at conversational level about matches the whine volume). At some point in the 2000s the engine noise drowns out the whine. The whine happens every time the engine revs above 1500rpm (not a sometimes noise in my experience).

I lifted the bonnet and held the engine revving above 1500 - sounded like the noise was coming from the RHS of vehicle towards the firewall (near the turbo).

Balance shaft was replaced at 11000 miles, unfortunately it has failed again at 12000 miles, car is currently with the dealer. This second failure resulted it a much louder wine than the first failure clearly audible over the radio at normal volume. To date both the dealer and Land Rover have been helpful, although they do stress they have only seen only ‘one or two failures and never two’. FYI the car is rarely used for trips under 40 miles, however it uses over 2 litres of AdBlue every 1000 miles.
