Hi all,

My D2 finally raised its white flag. It is @ 150K miles and is 15 years old. About 80K miles ago, I replaced the cooling system, rebuilt the front engine cover, and replaced the oil pan gasket..

I think I have a block issue. It will overheat when I start giving some load on the street. It won't over heat on my driveway as long as if I keep the speed below 10 mph. It overheats when I start driving above 20mph and boils the coolants out.

Thought it was bad cooling system so I replaced: the hoses, coolant bottle, cap, water pump, radiator. Still does it. Yes I burped the system.

I had a few misfire code from Cyl 4.

I saw this issue coming so I am prepared for the bill.

I have been told that by a local shop that he will drop in a Turner 4.6L with all the upgrades for $10K with 3 year warranty on the engine and 1 year labor.

What do you guys think of that price? How do you know if you are getting 4.6L engine? I trust no mechanics. I need a way to confirm that I am getting 4.6L if I am paying for it.

for 10K you can get an LR3 and it's more reliable!

10K for a new engine into a old Disco is a waste. Depending on the type of off-roading your going to do, the LR3 is a viable option. A couple mods to the automatic ride-height system and some semi-agressive tires and a LR3 is incredibly capable off-road.
But if your hell-bent on a D2, take your money and get a clean, low mileage '04. Hell, go higher mileage and you can buy two!!
