Hi all, I am looking for a full size RR. I am wondering if these vehicles ever got the revised timing chain guides? RRS and the LR4 did in 2013.

Thank you.

Following for the comments.

I need some clarity on this, too. The way it read made it sound like it applied to the 2012 model year. But I have a feeling they meant for the 2013 MY when production started in 2012, as with many automakers.

I have a feeling this included precisely 0 of the L322 models.

Based on the vin ranges listed in the official Land Rover TSB documentation, it is clear that no L322’s received the updated timing chain tensioner a from the factory. 100% of the L322s left the production line with the old defective parts.

Nope. The guides if I've read correctly continued to have issues well into L405 land as well. But 100% for sure the L322 never got any upgraded guides on the assembly line

Im sorry for the interruption OP. If I need to start a different thread please let me know.

I have a 4.2 SC with 120k on it... it’s a nice quiet engine. How can I tell when I should do the chain?

The earlier Jag motors seem to be pretty bulletproof - 07-09 are regarded as the most reliable of the bunch. If it's not broken, I wouldn't worry about it

From what I've been able to gather, it seems the safest bet for 5-liter engines (NA and S/C) with regards to updated timing chain components is the 2016+ model year vehicles. Anything prior to that most likely had older style tensioners/chains/guides and therefore a suspect.

I agree. My 2007 HSE is so much more reliable than I ever expected it to be. The Jag 4.4 sounds great and runs great (knock on wood). I expected so many more problems than I've had. Great years for the RR.

Add 2006 to that list... Same motor & drivetrain.
