Send it to Rob at southwest rovers in Albuquerque new Mexico. Well worth the money and time to have it repaired by a true professional.

Lou -- If you're in Dumont, you might as well call Vinny, his shop was in Dumont... it may be in Paramus now;

See the guys in Dumont. Vinnie is in Paramus. They are two different companies. Call Land Rover in Paramus and see who they recommend....

Thanks guys the Import Specialists in Dumont are not very reliable. I drove my truck to their shop last year for a head gasket change and they couldn't get my truck running for 8 months and it still wasn't right. All of their guess work cost me about 3K and truck was now misfiring. Got them to investigate their issue and they told me the job had to be redone and it was gonna cost another 2k. I told them no way. They refused to put the truck back together and demanded more money for investigating the misfiring. I went with a tow truck and got my D90 out of that mess of a shop. Maybe they are only good for doing oil changes and brake jobs.

Vinnie is not part of the place in Dumont, he has his own place now . He started the place in Dumont but has been on his own for over two years at Paramus . http://www.roverspecialist.com/home.html once again try Vinnie he services both my D-90 .

Thanks -- I will give Vinnie a call. I went to him in Paramus many years ago. He was always helpful.
