Question about 1996 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

Head gasket done in car.

Was wondering if there was an engine that would fit into my car, it's a 1996 rover 214 1.4 litre and thought maybe a peugeot 206 engine and gearbox or something similar would fit the car.

ps. it's not in the product contents list but hope you can help.

No doubt it would fit ,give me some cutting gear and a welder and i will put you in a jag engine.The problem is the paperwork involved ,and finding a technical engineer to draw up a plan with all technical stuff like brake co-efficients and power train values then getting passed through the vehicle inspection test.Best engine is a honda for this car,just buy one with a honda engine.GReat cars the rovers especially the P5

When a h/gasket it done it is usually required to come back in after 1000k,s to be retensioned.A modified gasket is mainly fitted IF the head was shaved or reconditioned.Did they say to bring it back in for the head to be retensioned after the initial fitting?If not,it is their fault.It is the same as a new car.It requires the head gasket to be retensioned after 1000k,s.All cars are the same.Hope this helps you

Smoke problem

Sounds as though you have water in the oil. The white smoke is the steam. Check your oil by taking the dip stick out and if it looks like mayonnaise then your head gasket will need replacing. Once the head is off the engine block, there is no way safely to say how much work will be needed on the cylinder head. If the head gasket has blown then you will need to fit a new timing belt also.

No, the size of the cars is different, so it wont work.
