There must be Landrover Dealers in the area - find one, they will be tooled up for the Freelander which had the same engine fitted.

Thank you all for your replies and advice. I am in France but my focus is packing up dad's life in order to get him back to the UK.

The car isn't overheating and dad now says it is not leaking. It is very difficult for me to know what's what. I am not a mechanic 🤣 and dad is not very reliable at the moment.

I really appreciate the advice and it is booked into a different (recommended garage) for a second opinion. I will pass on all advice to the garage. Fingers crossed.

Thank you again and much appreciated.

Thank you Colvert and Costa Fortuna. Do you think it is worth contacting the Land rover garage rather than a recommended garage by a friend of his.

Sorry, this site is very difficult to navigate on a phone ��.

I love your giraffe ��. Coming from Africa, it makes me smile.

Hi all. I have looked at the car this morning. The fan (if that is the one behind the front grill) is running continuously.
The car is still leaking. I have taken a photo but can't find how to attach it. It is dripping down from the bottom of the grey block (radiator?). But I don't think that's the source of the leak, if that makes any sense. Sorry, not a mechanic 🙃

Thanks for this Fiona. If you carried out the test I described in post no. 3 (start the engine from cold and press the windscreen demist button) then the radiator fan (yes, it's behind the front grille) should run continuously so it's working correctly. :}

That makes perfect sense. Can you start the engine again please and look carefully at the coolant filler cap. Is there any sign that the leak is coming from there? If so, the top of the plastic tank should have some powdery dried antifreeze (like pink talcum powder!).

Thank you for you reply Simon. It is wierd. It is dripping not from the radiator but a metal bar behind it and the liquid is yellow. The coolant reservoir was just replaced so is new and there is no powder around the cap.

What is weird is a small amount of liquid running down from the right hand side, to the right of the bolt, of the black box (sorry 😣) that has the V6 badge on it. I don't think it can be coming from above.

I wish I could attach pictures, it would make more sense to you!

FHolroyd 13th November 2021 11:26

Thank you all for your help and guidance. We have made a decision that we will put the car on the back of a truck and bring it back to the UK to be looked at. With dad's move, it is just getting too stressful.

Is anyone able to recommend a garage to take it to. Dad will be in Virginia Water, Surrey.

Thank you again.
