LAND ROVER SE­RIES 3

Auto Car (UK) - - USED CARS -

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of EVS could learn a lot from the life-sav­ing prop­er­ties of my Land Rover, AKA ‘the lorry’. You can hear the ex­haust man­i­fold leak from miles away, so the chances of a pedes­trian step­ping out in front of the old girl as she chugs along are min­i­mal. The noise has got worse in the past few months, and there’s now a very real dan­ger of car­bon monox­ide poi­son­ing after start-up. I’m tempted to just buy some sealant, but the orig­i­nal man­i­fold gas­ket is 33 years old, so it might be about time to get a fresh one. It is, after all, an old Land Rover, so at least it will be an un­bolt, bolt up job.
