I just had my 1997 Disco blow its head gaskets and had it repaired along with a new rear main seal as it was leaking, plugs, and a new clutch. Coolant was flushed and replaced because as a temporary fix i used barsleak to get me by for a week before going into the shop. Coolant level has remained the same since returning from the shop, so no more leaks there.
With the oil consumption previously I would have to add about a jug (5 litres) of oil every two weeks, and there was no oil on the ground, but lots on the exhaust manifold and clutch.
The engine basically had the whole top end rebuilt. It was sent to shop to be machined and had new seals and gaskets everywhere. My engine bay was even cleaned up to look new so we can look for leaks after the repair.
I have had my Disco back for two weeks and it is using Motul 5w40 synthetic oil. The engine has only had 300 km on it, and I had to top up a litre and a half...
What's going on here? I occasionally see white smoke puffing out of my exhaust but no much.
