Land Rover Discovery Leaking Head Gaskets May Cause Low Coolant Levels

(33 reports)

Low coolant levels can be caused by leaking head gaskets and/or failed cylinder liners. Misfires or engine performance issues usually accompany these problems.

Misfire on #5 and #7. Head gasket was blown. Dealer wanted $6k. Did it myself for $300 in parts and about 7 hours of labor. LR dealers are rip-off artist. If you can't work on your car yourself, I don't recommend one of these trucks. I love mine still though. -
Problem may not be leaking head gasket if related to missfire and bucking. Have coolant system pressure tested for leaks. If no leaks problem is your ignition coil not the head gasket. -

leaking out of rear of head - passenger side (right bank). Most likely due to poor repair on a head gasket replacement. New head gaskets & instead of using stretch bolts - I am using ARP head studs & straightened & trued the heads. -
