If you are concerned, please call to discuss. Land Rover Discovery Series 2 W reg 2000 4.0 litre V8 with proper LPG conversion for Land Rovers, with twin torpedo tanks held in cradle under floor and smaller purpose made petrol tank.I have owned it since 2015 but it has to go for repair or spares. LPG Conversion (see last 6 photos) which has proved very economical to run, costing me circa 40mpg equivalent as the autogas is about half price and is cheaper to run than friends' diesel Landies.
I replaced the cradle holding the twin 40 litre tanks (80 litre in total) and the purpose made petrol steel tank (holds about 6 gallons) hidden above the O/S rear wheel about two years ago. Good leather upholstery, electric seats, twin sunroofs which both work, extended roof rails, never been welded to my knowledge.
Towbar with twin electrics but I have not used it for towing. Rear air suspension replaced with coil springs. Quite a bit of paperwork showing history.
4 Pirelli Scorpion tyres with probably another 10,000 miles on them. Brand new twin Cat Y shape with new manifold gaskets but all to no avail (see bad points) as I then discoverd a further problem with a leak on the Head Gasket and decided to stop there. The Y Cat had two new sensors fitted as the old ones would not come off. There must be close to a thousand pounds worth of kit new or almost new including gas tank cradle, petrol tank, twin Cats , sensors etc.
No coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant just coolant trickling out and a really loud noise like a train. It sounds just like there is a hole in the manifold but there isn't as I have taken it off to replace the manifold gaskets. A metal cooling pipe near the Rocker cover has a small leak and a hose connector to the gas heater needs replacing and I have that ready to go in.
I have always had the irregular appearance of the three amigos for no obvious reason or trigger. If you do not know what this means you probably should look it up as it is a common matter on Series 2 models.
I have had two good Land Rover specialists look at it to try and see if they can find a fault but they could not as everything worked as it should. Their advice was to live with it and ignore it as it is not uncommon that it cannot be traced to a fault. It has come on irregularly for some years and there is nothing noticeably wrong. Ford just slapped every conceivable electric device on the Series 2 V8 when they bought Land Rover and some warning light seem not to signify. Couple of cracks in bumper corners which I taped over for MOT.
Slight scratch to drivers door when some moron keyed the paint. Driver's door unlocks on key not fob. Two keys but only one fob works.
Someone with a a bit of sense, moderate skills and no family commitments could probably fix this over a few weekends and I certainly hope this is the case as it would be a shame to break it. I have never taken it off road.It is a great Motorway cruiser and at 70mph the V8 is barely ticking over. It has seven forward facing seats with the two rear ones folding away neatly out of the way unlike many of the Japanese versions. Listed as "Spares or Repair" but it can be driven away if you do not mind people hearing you coming and looking for the noise and I have just made a 100 mile round trip in it to no ill effect.
It is MOT'd until 2nd May 2020. It is advertised elsewhere but if you have any questions, you can call Marcus on 07925 642094.
