Range Rover 3.6 TDV8 Engine Rebuild
Land Rover Range Rover 3.6 TDV8 Engine Common Failures
The Land Rover and Range Rover 3.6 TDV8 vehicles we have here at Dieselheads have all had the same failure, the 3.6 TDV8 engine is very strong generally speaking, the problem lies mainly with the turbochargers. Like other Land Rover engines the intake of oil through the turbocharger causes it to spin and rev up overloading the engine and causes failure. The only other notable issue with this engine is the composition of the valves, these are often heavily corroded upon inspection.
