Yes, on a Land Rover, that’s the only way to fix it. They just wear out over time. You don’t have to bite the bullet or get another vehicle. Perhaps, find a good used engine from the salvage yard that has got a low mileage. If you want to have the vehicle inspected in person, a technician from YourMechanic can detect the leak and let you know what repairs may be possible.
