I just did a pre-purchase diagnostic on a 2010 LR2 with 106.5k miles, which turned up no problems except "seepage" between the motor and transmission. It was dry and covered with dust. My spouse says a firm "no," I want to give it a closer look. So Shaun, can this marriage be saved? Is it worthwhile trying to track the source of the seepage or is it a bad enough sign that we should agree to walk away?

My car has 106500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. I haven’t laughed this hard in a while....thanks for the "can this marriage be saved" line. But, your spouse does have a point. A Land Rover with any indication of seepage or a seal being damaged is a recipe for disaster and major repairs coming sooner rather than later. If you’re going to spend money on this type of vehicle, I’d make sure it’s 100% as there are plenty fish in the sea.

Q: So this shop just put some oil in my rear differential and now it's making a grinding noise? What could be causing that?

Hi Elishea. Thanks for contacting us today. Generally speaking, the rear differential has no impact on the steering of the vehicle, so it's quite possible that adding the fluid to the rear differential is not the source of this noise....

Q: squeaky bumping noise for driver side rear intermittingly. louder when the car slows down.
