Land Rover 3.0 TDV6 Engine Rebuild
Common Land Rover 3.0 TDV6 Engine Failures
Land Rover 3.0 TDV6 engine – crankshaft failure.
Our most common engine rebuild is the 3.0 TDV6 (306DT), this engine suffers mostly from crankshaft issues much like the old 2.7 TDV6 engine. The crankshaft by design incorporates weak points between the rod bearing journals & counterweights, over time these points are stressed to the point of failure and in some cases complete breakage. Other issues similar to the 2.7 TDV6 are fuel injectors & heat damaged/melted pistons.
We include a new OE crankshaft with all of our engine rebuilds on this, it is a vital component that is essential to creating a high quality engine that will last.

Land Rover 3.0 TDV6 (306DT)
In 2009 the TDV6 platform was upgraded from the 2.7 TDV6 to the 3.0 TDV6 engine. Along with an increased capacity the new 3.0 TDV6 also incorporated twin turbocharging, oil pump, improved timing chain tensioner and surrounding oil galleries. This engine is fitted to the Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Sport. This is still fitted to the newest iterations of Land Rover vehicles, the block itself is slightly different as well as the oil pump, this is known as the 306DTA.
