Problem -


L Series diesel - During cold to moderate ambient temperatures (5C to 20C) the customer may experience prolonged ‚in cab heater warm up times.

Loss of performance due to fueling ‚de-rate may also be experienced under high load/duty conditions with the temperature gauge reading normal.


The thermostat may have been manufactured away from specification, allowing a small amount of coolant to bypass the thermostat from the cold side of the system.


Where a customer complaint of the above is confirmed, replace the thermostat.

Refer to PARTS INFORMATION for thermostat application details.

Refer to Workshop Manual repair number 29.45.09 for repair procedure.

Freelander L Series only - Carefully remove the thermostat cover by using a gentle (twisting and pulling) action, if the inner core of the oil cooler is disturbed at this stage this would necessitate the fitment of a new oil cooler.
