We finally get the Range Rover running and driving after its head gasket sealer treatment; but it still gives us a little trouble! Here's how much I've spent on it, how much it will cost to make the auction Land Rover a little better, and I will be giving it away to one of you!

Hey Sam, Hope you're well. I really love your channel but feel like there has been a lack of content as of recent. Would love to see where the Ferarri is at, as well as that supercharged AMG Mercedes. Love seeing the progress of the builds on your channel, but often feel like no project is complete. All the best and looking forward to more. Best, -JM

Hey Samcrac...a little Rover joke for you. What do you call a Land Rover that doesn't leak....Empty. Another quick question which I am sure has been asked of you but I have not seen on your channel. Is there a way to track what cars sold for on Copart without having to watch the live auction?

We have created a Range Rover P38 group on FaceBook, WHAT another one i hear you say? Well we set out to try and do something a little different and that is to do things right.! Gone are the wannabe armchair engineers and the trolls that seem to hinder most groups and in will be an admin team that consist of guys who knwo what they are on about and can navigate their way around RAVE to come up with solutions to problems. Its a very fresh group, and its very early days, but with your help we will get there, and not only are we looking for new members, we are looking for experienced guys to join the admin team and help build the group. We can be found here.... facebook.com/groups/925014894688556/

-- Love the video series, but to be honest, I'd rather get the flu than win the truck. I'm sure all that's all long done by now, but swap the starter. Leave the modded thermostat, toggle fuse 18, but hold off on the gaskets. There's a lot of valve noise (or guide noise) in there. I'd say if you did a rebuild of the topside of that motor, you would honestly have something with this thing. All that slop in the cams/valve guides, whatever it actually is, probably is why the gaskets failed in the first place. AND probably why it will fail again. It at least need a top tear down. Is it worth it? No. Would it be fun to see? Yup. Is it going to be one headache after another with this vehicle? Yup.

I used the head gasket sealer in a Honda with a blown gasket. Lasted a few months. Tried some more, heater stopped working and the gasket went again. No real alternative to replacing a head gasket when its blown.
Andrew Bibbey
Andrew Bibbey Πριν 4 μήνες
that stat wouldnt open just putting in hot water. they open over 100c and cars water systems run under pressure so dont boil at 100c unless you open the cap. thats why you dont open the cap as it will boild due to pressure loss and being hot and over 100c when sealed.

No you dont! Believe me Ruy, until you have own one,... You never say that. Land Rovers are nothing but very expensive troubles. My mechanic wouldn't even change the oil - for fear of something else breaking. The best day ever is when I traded it in. I kept looking back to see if they would run back out and say wait! We made a huge mistake - "suckers" I thought to myself. Bought a Mitsubishi Montero and never looked back. :)

As an owner of three Range Rovers, I have enjoyed all three of them. I’m currently driving my 2016 big body Supercharged RR. I haven’t had any problems with any of them. Sorry to those “actual” Range Rover owners that have had problems. My experience has been that the vast majority of negative comments are from people that have never and will never be able to afford to buy one and therefore are just jealous and show this jealousy/envy by just writing the same old tired hate comments heard time and time and time and time again. This RR had over 200,000 miles on it. Any American car is lucky if it hits 80,000 miles before dying. That’s why no one buys them anymore.

I vote to take to the junkyard, you wasted a lot of time on a junk motor esp seeing that motor oil that sealer is no lifetime fix and I would not put a starter in it either. Or scrap it out for parts, do not threaten people that you are giving it away you could be arrested for that, or maybe sued for it.

Its boiling with the cap off because there is no pressure in the system. Water boils at a much higher temperature when its under pressure..Thats why the thing has a pressure cap.

You talk to much. You found the problem in the first post. Head gaskets are a simple fix unless the head is warped.
Dirk Wincester
Dirk Wincester Πριν 4 μήνες
Only an idiot would believe you can fix a blown head gasket for $25 dollars. I have seen what that crap does to the inside of a cooling system and it's not good. Not only that but any good you believe it did will quickly go away. They engine is shot. Did anyone else hear all the valves clanging? That's due to over heating, Range Rivers don't sound like that when they are running right. The crap he put in the engine will clog up other things also while plugging the head gasket. Any sensors are usually destroyed from that crap. If you was stuck somewhere and used it to just get you to safety, I would say to use it but no other way would I use this crap. Most of those quick fixes tell you to remove the thermostat first.

This is exactly what I have to go through my BMW, did everything that you did to RR. But steam never goes away and with check engine light shown, I decided to open the engine and found out Enging head is warpped due to over heating, it is good engine, my BMW can still go 120mph with warpped engine head. so ultimate fixing the car is to replace head gasket and resurface the head with new torque bolts.

@Samcrac man you should just change the plugs, gasket and oil, with an new thermostat, you are done. 1400 dollars plus maybe 300 bucks and car is done. This patching with all sort of s*** additives is a waste of time.
