Wow, that puts a smile on my face... `) ...I'm just shy over 144k and no issues so far(just odd ball, RR nickle and dime stuff), but drivetrain still chuggin' along...And I will be the first to admit, I'm not light footed either...Sport mode gets used quite a few times... 8) ...As for what to replace, thermostat, water pump, drive belt, in my case, front crank seal, basic tune up and coil packs...I just replace items when they fail, such as alt, battery, ect...But my rig does get her 3k oil change and chassis greasing from Land Rover...Plus, rad flush and diff/tranny fluids changed...I know, oil changes are easy, but my son enjoys the play room and free ice cream... :dance:I've got an '02 w/ 170,000 miles on the clock, and though I don't have problems yet, I think it's almost time to do the headgasket.
Other than replacing the headgasket/valley gasket/valve cover seals while I have the engine apart, what other stuff should be tended to?
Thanks in advance,
You have got to be kidding, right???... 8-0= ...$1500 for valve cover gasket replacement...Man, I'm in the wrong business...I'm guessing these shops pray on lost souls who they think are technically incompetent because they drive "Land Rovers"...My word man, that has to be the most ridiculous price quote I have ever heard...Wonder what they charge for oil changes???...Or even a air filter replacement???...I know some RR owners would prefer to have someone else do the work, which is fine, but your better off finding somene on this forum or and other RR forum to help out, I'm sure for the fraction of the price that these so call "indy" shops charge...Heck, I would have no problem helping a fellow Rover owner out and all I would ask in return is bring your own parts and a cold case of PBR... :thumb: ...TheoR said:Here in Southern California, I was quoted $1,500 from an indy just for valve cover replacement, so I don't know how much they'll want for a head gasket job.
I think it all depends on where you live. On the other hand, even if it's only $1,500 for a head gasket replacement, I'll probably still do it myself.
