    Land Rover SD4 - awful engine noise and shakes


    it is my second post in this forum. My name is Marek and I come from Poland. Sorry for my English. I will do all my best to be understood I decided to write this message in the Australian forum because you buy diesel engines like in Poland and I hope you could help me a little bit with my present case

    I have 2.0 SD4 240HP MY2017 with about 55k km.

    I have significant problem with my engine. When I start it in the morning - engine must be cold - I hear awful sounds. Idle drops down, everything shakes - engine and body. But it takes about 30-60 seconds.

    You can see it below:

    The second thing is that after that I come in the car and turn on all electrics (the same situation as in winter when after start all heatings turns on automatically) - AC, heating front and rear window, maximum fans - and I have the similar situation. No awful sounds from engine but idle waves and everything shakes. And again - it takes about 30 s and stops.

    You can see it below:

    First was unstable idle with all electrics (I noticed it in the winter) then appeared noisy engine (was about a month ago) and now I have third symptom which - I'm sure - is related to both earliers.

    The whole body shakes while driving but when I stop on red, for example. Idle is stable, no noise from engine but vibrations are perceptible. And they occurs unsystematically. And I feel that there are a little bit more vibrations when accelerating from low RPM (a second before the gear is shifted down).

    Something is wrong.

    Would be very appreciate for your suggestions.

    Greetings from Antipodes

    Welcome,only thing I can add is that I have read of oil dilution problems with this engine. Check the level and for any signs of diesel , drain and fill with fresh oil and see if there is any change.

    I thought there was a known issue with engine bearings on the (earlier) SD4 engines, which could explain the noise.
