Freelander 2005 V6 Petrol Viscous Coupler Help Please
I recently put my 2005 Freelander V6 in for MOT, it was perfectly fine and I expected it to pass.
Unfortuantely it failed on the front tyres and also the back box of the exhaust was blowing a little bit and needed to be replaced.
The garage replaced the front tyres (with a different make to the back) and the back box of the exhaust (non genuine).
Since then there is a loss of power, a vibration when I drive and a strong smell of gas inside the car. Also the VC is piping hot after a few miles.
The garage have told me that the VC has gone and that it is a coincidence and not related to anything they have done. I don't know a great deal about cars so can someone please tell me if I am being lied to by the garage? I have read that if you are only replacing two of the four tyres in a 4x4 transmission then it should be the rear tyres that you replace...is this true?
I would be really grateful of any helpful comments as I am not sure what to do.
