Yes, the rear diff is fcuked. It is a common fault on these models. I have a 1.8 2000 model and have now removed the rear prop. This now gives me a perfectly quiet drive, more mpg and frankly not worth getting fixed unless you really need to have 4wd. It is very common for owners to do this. Apparantly after 2001 threy used different diffs (JATCO) which are more heavy duty and don't wear out as fast!

Hi ,
Not easy this one,when your turbo failed the oil feed to the turbo bearings continued to feed engine oil into the intake side(could not turn off),the engine is then Un-governed and free to rev way above maximum limit,it has then massively over heated, the oil treatments are unlikely to cause this problem ,usually down to not letting the Turbo "wind down " after driving,The best course of action is to replace the engine and turbo charger and have the induction pipes and intercooler properly cleaned ,there are no cheap fixes for this you were just unlucky.

SOURCE: my y reg freelander has a droning noise from back

Possible tyre noise, Have tyres been changed from left to right lately. Each tread section wears at an angle and changing direction of rotation will create noise. Just a thought as i had this problem with a vauxhall.
Regards. Rob.

My car keep on breaks alternator belts and it also makes this loud whistling noise. I've put on a new water pump, 3 alternators and several alternator belts


make sure that the pulleys of all the driven equipment are in alignment and not at a bit of an angle to the axis of the drive belt
To break belts something is not lined up properly or something is not turning freely

Leaking oil and water


Get a torch and look all round the engine until you see the source of the leak.
There are only a couple of options namely:
1 Through the engine, meaning a blown head gasket so you may not see where the break in the gasket occurs
2. A leak on the outside of the gasket - you should see this
3. a cracked head requiring specialist work

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Remove the engine undercover.
  2. Disconnect the clamp bolt from the power steering hose.
  3. Remove the engine drive belts.
  4. Support the engine with the appropriate equipment and remove the engine mount bracket.
  5. Remove the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  6. Remove the power steering pump bracket.
  7. Remove the alternator brace.
NOTE The water pump mounting bolts are different in length, note their positioning for reassembly.
  1. Remove the water pump, gasket and O-ring where the water inlet pipe(s) joins the pump.
To install:
  1. Thoroughly clean both gasket surfaces of the water pump and block.
  2. For 1.5L engines, install a new O-ring into the groove on the front end of the water inlet pipe. Do not apply oils or grease to the O-ring. Wet the O-ring with water only.
  3. For 1.8L engines, apply a 0.09-0.12 in. (2.5-3.0mm) continuous bead of sealant to water pump and install the pump assembly. Install the water pump within 15 minutes of the application of the sealant. Wait 1 hour after installation of the water pump to refill the cooling system or start the engine.
  4. Install the gasket and pump assembly and tighten the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Use care when aligning the water pump with the water inlet pipe.
  5. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of removal.
  6. Fill the system with coolant.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable, run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the radiator completely.
  8. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the engine coolant.

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Remove the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  2. If necessary, remove the alternator brace from the water pump.
  3. If necessary, remove the timing belt rear cover.
  4. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  5. Remove the water pump, gasket and O-ring.
To install:
  1. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Coat the O-ring with water or coolant. Do not allow oil or other grease to contact the O-ring.
  2. Use a new gasket and install the water pump to the engine block. Torque the mounting bolts to 8.7-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm). Install the alternator brace on the water pump. Torque the brace pivot bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the timing belt rear cover.
  4. Install the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  5. Install the remaining components.
  6. Refill the engine with coolant.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

I really hope this help (remember rated this help).

Is Audi guide belt or cam belt related to the sump


Timing belt needs to be replaced every 100000 km at the most . Do you know when it was replaced last ?
Did they remove the front pulley (The one on the crankshaft)?
The Timing belt and AUX belts are not related to the sump but they are related to the crankshaft pulley , Depending on the type of repair carried out they may have removed the pulley in order to replace the crankshaft front oil seal.If I was replacing a crankshaft oilseal due to oil leaking I would have fitted a new Timing belt as well as Tensioner , Idler/s , Water pump (if driven by timing belt) as well as the AUX belts as Oil can damage rubber .
Hope this makes sense to you ?
Looking forward to your reply

Broken bottom alternator belt


Check those pulleys that the Alternator belt runs on and make sure that they are ok. Make sure that oil is NOT getting on this belt (form oil leaks ) that's one of the most common reasons for belts to break that often. Good Luck
