They would have to get a loan to get it fixed at the dealer so he is looking for other alternatives. Any tips I can pass on to him?
The TD5 engine uses the other type of coolant fluid (not sure which) and so the additives may not work or as well. In addition, he needs to be very careful about driving it, loosing not too much cooling can kill the engine, and that will be much more expensive than a coolant.
I am a member of AULRO (australia Land rover Owners) forum and they are very help full and can give guidance.
this wont actually solve teh overall problem may give some good info as to help deal with the current situation.
Of course, a replacement radiator or a repair the current one is possible with out goign to the stealer ship
