Just got me a Disco!

Just returned from San Francisco with a Rover Disco 1 under my foot pedal. Flew up there last week and picked it up off of Craig's List. 1998 white. Guy who had it took pretty good care of it for the most part. No rust, no body damage at all, windows and sunroofs all work, seats are even in good shape. His wife cried when I took it off their hands.

After driving it down the Pacific Coast Highway and a couple nights at Joshua Tree National Park, I am home and took it in to a mechanic to get an assessment on what it needs.

The think bleeds just about every liquid possible from about every orifice. It rains oil like uncle Jed's black gold. I was hoping not to have too big of a engine update quote but it is 'quite large' to say the least. Any suggestions? Anybody like to work on Rovers that just loves to share knowledge with a keg of IPA? I want to modify the rig once the engine is in good shape but fixing all the leaks is a bit overwhelming and though my girlfriend might disagree, I am not really all that savvy under the hood.

Cheers!

Welcome!

There are plenty of folks who are usually able to offer some good advice along with lending a wrench hand...

Look forward to meeting you on the trail. <!-- s:prosit: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_beerToast.gif" alt=":prosit:" title="prosit" /><!-- s:prosit: -->

Welcome to the club! any idea where the engine is leaking from? There's a couple of good independent LR mechanics in town that we all use.

Take it to Kevin at RovNTechs http://www.rovntechs.com for an honest thorough evaluation. Some stuff leaks anyway and doesn't have to be addressed as critically as other items.

Congratulations on your new Land Rover Discovery!
