Question about 2004 Land Rover Range Rover
Car over heated was on highway could not pull over because of my safety&other drivers...Had car towed...Dropped car off at my regular mechanic ON THURSDAY...He looked at it Friday...Never called me...Saturday called him...Said he needed to get a special hose from Landrover so truck JUST SAT!. No call from him...I call him on Tuesday...Part was delivered to his other shop...Called me Wed morn said possible heads...Car he say's over heats after about 10 to 15min...He said thermostat is being delivered...Shouldn't we check to see if thermostat is problem before just kicking out money for new heads...i AM FRUSTRATED WITH THE NON CALLS FROM HIM for i always pay good money&tip him..Please help..Thank you.
Not much we can do online about the mechanic. The hose probably blew when the engine overheated, so he would need to replace it to test the cooling system. And yes the thermostat would be tested or replaced before removing the heads.
Be sure and get a second opinion if his final diagnosis is a blown head gasket. He may be right, but better to be sure.

Testimonial: "I appreciate the prompt response Steve...I feel like my mechanic is just pushing the heads to be replaced...Why even order the thermostat in the first place if that's the only resolve your pushing...Not sure but this is the first time i didn't feel sincerity with him almost like he's just reaching and that bothers me...I Started truck right up...Looked at dip stick,oil look good,no water...Just oil on the stick...He did show me the hose it had a lot of worn cracks on it...Whats the percent success of doing new heads..He said,I am looking at around 12 to 1300 for whole job?Oh,and this is 2000 not a 2004 range rover...Hse 4.6 8 cylinder...102k miles"
