I enjoy “working” on the 928.
The other cars are just extra “work” which I resent :)

Todays example: late model Land Rover Discovery.
Small coolant leak that making me crazy. Tear down is a myriad of plastic tabs, this bitty was not made to be worked on.
Grrrr.

Here’s the last repair.
Who the duck makes a start button that can’t be a wear item?

I might have lost my cool and cut through some harness and breather hose to get the throttle body out of a mouse hole……

MmmmmmHmmmmm.

Fabricated a plug to pressure test.
Isolated to the T-stat housing.
Upon further review, the gasket has flat spot from over torque. Assume factory, no one has touched this bitty prior.
Look at the crap on these injectors!

Used a 2L ecoboost engine that Ford used for Edge and Explorer models.

I’d like to respond with something encouraging. Or funny. Or maybe sarcastic.

But, you’ll have to rely on your own wit; it’s been one of those days for me where I’m glad I don’t have a propensity to throw tools (at things) when I’m pissed off. 928 that’s supposed to be done on Sunday … doing some last “quick checks” of stuff I haven’t touched … just found a square-toothed timing belt on round-tooth gears…

Have you seen this meme yet?
It made me chuckle.
It might help;)

Resolved. But Why am still irritated that the engine was stamped 2012 and sat in a crate for four years before installation.

That's got to be about as fun as my LR2 that has a[…]
