I was reading an article in the British Sunday Times ( 15/1/06) a guy with a SII Range Rover was complaining of having to replace his short engine because it had a porous cylinder block ( manifest by drinking coolant but no white smoke as in head gasket). Is this problem apparent with SI 1998 Discoveries?

Thanks for the info lads, PAVEL just for clarity here's the text of the article I'm talking about. This is the motoring correspondents response;
" The Series II Range Rover ( 1994-2001 ) came in a 4 litre and 4.6 litre version. There is a known problem with the larger engine. Some are prone to developing a porous cylinder block. The problem normally becomes apparent through a huge appeite for coolant but without any of the usual head gasket symptoms, typically at the 50,000 mile mark"
Any way if the Disco I is okay I'll sleep better tonight, may be I should kick this up to the Range Rover Forum and give those rich kids up there that sinking feeling!
