Rough idle?

This also worked for me...I appreciate the posts and pictures. Encouraged me to fix it on my own which I did and now have no whistling (At a cost of $50 vs $800 quote from mechanic...Ebay). Thing is now I have a bit of a rough idle...car is fine at speed but idles rough when in park or stopped at a light. Any thoughts? Any help is appreciated

Thanks so much for your post regarding the PCV. I have spent 2 months trying to track down the source for the loud whistling noise coming for my Freelander LR2 2010 model. My local Landrover mechanic was unable to identify the source, ended up changing my water pump to no avail and sent me to have the transmission checked! The Landrover mechanics in Cape Town are not aware that a PCV valve can cause this problem. Changed the valve cover and hey presto, problem solved. Thanks again, I am truly grateful for your post.

Thumbs up Loud Whistling Noise 2009 LR2

I have a 2009 LR2 and been experiencing this loud whistling noise for about a month. It definitely was not the sound of a belt or fan and I could not figure out what it was. I read the posts here and everyone was saying it is the PCV valve. The PCV valve in my year Rover is built into the valve cover, I checked it out and looked easy enough to do, bought the part for $200 and tools for $20. Fixed it myself and it worked like a charm, the noise is all gone! Also saved myself a $1200 repair quote!

Thanks so much to everyone who added to this helpful post
