This car presented with warning lights on the dash and a lack of performance, going into limp mode. Turbo pressure codes., removal of the turbo we found the manifold cracked, leaking exhaust pressure. This is a reasonably common fault and this engine and turbo has a few applications, Land Rover, Ford and Volvo. Unfortunately these manifolds are made up of a double stainless skin and aren’t easily repaired. Reports of internal pieces breaking away and completely destroying the turbo. A nice Monday job fitting a new turbo on an updated aftermarket manifold to prevent the same fault re-occuring.
2 Range Rover Evoques in for work. Diesel had a service and a tune while the Petrol had rear brakes replaced. Nice to start seeing a few of these coming through the shop.
Starting to see these on the streets of Wellington. Currently researching importing one in from the UK, trying to find the right one… We had a nice blue diesel one in this week.
Range Rovers small car the Evoque, very cool ride…. Looking forward to seeing more of these as more come onto the market
