Excuse for what? Nothing happened, my mechanic must have been right. If you want to insult my shop by telling them they know nothing then come on out to VA and bring that attitude, we would love to meet your smart ass.

Has anyone that has had their oil cooler lines replaced with Genuine ones had them fail? I'd like to see an example of Genuine ones that have cracked instantly after installing, and I'd also like to know if they were bought through a dealer or aftermarket parts supplier. You sound like one of those people that thinks if you don't switch to synthetic oil immediately your motor will explode.

For the record, I agree that the upgraded oil cooler liners are a superior option over Genuine, but Genuine is cheap for me. I replaced mine with Genuine ones and will again in probably 10 years.

Valid point.

I have no clue where the ones that exploded came from. Now I would say I would put my horsey hat on and search but I don't care enough.

As for the attitude webeceya, three seconds ago you lived in Colorado and didn't know how to remove a bumper for powdercoat so excuse me if what a shop told you doesn't hold much water for me. I do like your Virginia pride though. Good for you for routing for the local team.


Also where were your great shops when it came to fixing your range rover?

And for everyone else I am in no way bashing Virginia.

Highly doubt it. Funny thing is who the hell knows what quality/grade hose is under all that pretty Stainless? I'm removing mine and tapping out.

That's a good point, but the routing of the stainless hoses is much better. That being said, I've seen at least 5 stainless brake lines fail off road. IIRC stainless brake lines do not pass state inspection in Va.

Yep, I was told by the tech the last time I bothered to have my 90 inspected (3+years ago) that they can't inspect their condition.

Isn't it less of an issue in a 97? Why remove entirely? Started to search the forum for the faulty genuine ones but I'm on the toilet and can't wipe and type at same time so before it wastes ten more pages on nothing let's drop it. And can someone get webeceya a Virginia tech mascot costume so he can really show his pride.

The search function on this forum is pretty useless.

I thought the 97's still have a similar routing, but I may be wrong. The one I'm working on came from ECR and has their stainless lines. Regardless, the lines are rubber and should be considered a maintenance item.

I think 10 years ago there was less of an opinion. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I've heard a few times that D2's didn't come with lines. Capping off seems like a no brainer to me cause I don't tow or use mine in extreme hot conditions. I removed my condenser fan too.

2003 and 2004 Discoverys don't have an oil cooler.

I imagine your a/c pressures are through the roof in the summer in traffic without a condenser fan.

Replaced the blown turbo on my 300tdi with a $350 unit from eBay, adjusted boost up to 16psi - feels more peppy.

Installed 3/4" rubber matting the load space and second row floor. Picked up the matting at tractor supply - sold in a 4' x 8' sheet for around $40. Very stout and heavy.

Used one of the kid's silver sharpie markers and an old carpenter's chalk line to lay out the measurements on the mats.

Sharp razor blades (needed several - and when I was too lazy to go back in the garage again for another one, used my knife - this in not recommended) and patience are key for an easy process. Helps to lift and maneuver the matting after the initial cut to effectively peel it back as you go. There were times I was thinking to myself that there has to be an easier way, but in the end, it turned out great. Very pleased with this thick, heavy matting.

Decided to cut out a couple holes for the second row seat belt brackets that are on the tub floor, instead of reinstalling the seat belt brackets on top of the matting. Did this for easier removal of the load space mat.

Has now been dog tested and approved.
