Thread: 2.7 and 3.0 Td V6 Crankshaft Bearing Failure known manufacturing fault

    2.7 and 3.0 Td V6 Crankshaft Bearing Failure known manufacturing fault

    If anyone has had this issue regarding crankshaft bearing failure in there D3 D4 Range Rover or Range Rover Sport please contact me.
    Land Rover Australia are not making this known fault easily rectifiable.
    I am collecting names for possible recall notice.
    I suggest anyone who owns these vehicles maintain an extended warranty.

    Cheers Reijni

    Is it a manufacturing fault or a maintenance issue - incorrect oil and lack oil changes - I don't know - I have always used the correct grade of oil and reduced change intervals from 12,000km to 10,000km as a precaution. Following this topic on the UK Disco/RRS sites the issue seems to mainly impact high mileage vehicles and those with a demonstrated history of poor maintenance, late changes etc. Again I dont know but that is what mechanics like Disco Mikey are saying.

    If it was a design/manufacturing fault there would be systematic failures rather than the occasional few.

    Crankshaft or seized engine

    I have a late 2012 discovery 4 3.0lt tdv6 purchased in mid/late 2013. 95,000 in the clock
    I had the disco booked in for a service on Monday but couldnít make it. On Tuesday I was driving along & started hearing a tapping sound like a turbo fan or fan belt issue, I then heard what I thought was a fan belt break & lost power immediately & the battery light came on. I pulled over couldnít start it & had RACQ tow it to a very reputable mechanic.
    They have told me that the oil was very low & the engine seized. We are looking at $24,000 for a 2nd hand engine install.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated
    The boss is in tears.

    Thatís shocking. If itís been reasonably serviced JLR should contribute to this repair. However, I donít understand their prescribed 24 or 26k service intervals. My RRV tdv8 MY08 gets serviced every 10k, and has since new.

    Mine too!

    My 2011 RRS spun a bearing last week.
    This is a known fault covered by Service Bulletins SSM71816 and SSM72928.
    Is an assembly issue and they modified the design in early 2012.
    Am told you cannot rebuild these engines.
    Mine had less than 100,000klms on the clock and had been fully serviced with the last swrvice having been done less than 4000klms ago.
    Not down on oil and absolutely no warning given.
    I will be interested to see what JRA have to say about it.

    The extended service intervals recommended by LR may be a contributing factor in the early demise of these engines.
    Personally I think these extended service intervals are based more on Sales promotion than on actually providing a good service schedule to protect the car.
    Anyone with half a brain would know what the consequences of running an engine, transmission or diffs on suspect or old oils is and Landrover is actively promoting this practice
