Our 2002 Freelander SE just blew a gasket at 49,000 miles while driving on I 10 towards Phoenix, AZ near Palm Springs, CA ! We are under total astonishment to what happened? We Drove it from Providence RI to Berkeley, CA where at the local dealer in Walnut Creek we had our oil changed and asked them to check if anything else is needed since we will be driving back to RI which is more than 3,000 miles. We were told all is good that probably once back to RI we will have to change the brake pads and of course oil. We ended up having to tow it to the closest (45 miles) LR dealership in Rancho Mirage. There we paid 145.00 for them to tell us it would cost 10,000 to replace the engine! We ended up selling it for salvage for $500.00! Is there something we can do about this with landrover? The mechanic at Rancho Mirage secretly told me that I should check why Walnut Creek dealership didn't detect any problems? But again, maybe it is the fault of the engine and nothing could of really been detected in advance. Is it worth it to write to Landrover? Sad story...

I have posted this before; it is time again...
see message 142 for a good lawyer familiar with Land Rover problems.
and no, there are no favors and no kickbacks.
One more thing - the engine blew on my wife's Freelander. She now has a Honda CRV.

Well i had same prob with mine, but after i took it for diagnosis and found a problem with the airflow meter, i read about this on the internet and then took out the air filter, cleaned it properly, and also cleaned the airflow meter, since then till date i had no such problem again. I am enjoying my freelander now.
#176 of 178 Freelander Solenoids

Hello, I have a 2003 Freelander and my mechanic says I need to replace the solenoids. The dealer wants an insane amount of money for them as it uses 9 solenoids. I found a place online that has all nine of them for $296.99 plus shipping. Has anyone ever purchased from Cobra Transmission?
Thanks in advanced!
