Just One 2023 Range Rover Has Been Recalled For Engine Fire Risk



JLR UK Says Customer Reaction To New Range Rover Is ‘Outstanding’, SUV Sold Out For 12 Months - autojosh

Land Rover has recalled a single 2023 Range Rover model for an engine fire risk. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued the recall in coordination with the automaker.

The vehicle in question was assembled on November 9, 2022, at the Solihull Vehicle Assembly Plant in the UK, and it later became apparent from engine build records that the SUV’s 4.4-liter V8 in question has the missing or improperly installed gasket. There’s justifiable concern that leaked oil could come into contact with the exhaust manifold, potentially resulting in an engine bay fire. Jaguar Land Rover says that its engine supplier (BMW) notified it that five engines made it through the production line missing said gasket.

The NHTSA documents state that Jaguar Land Rover received reports in February from the engine supplier informing it that three of the V8s were suspected of having a turbo oil drain pipe either missing the gasket or an improperly installed one. Those engines were then inspected by JLR and repaired. However, on March 3, the automaker was notified by the supplier that another two engines suffered from the same condition. This time, both engines had already been installed into vehicles that had already left the factory.

A total of 2,300 PHEV prior-generation 2019-2022 Range Rovers and Range Rover Sports are also getting recalled for cooling system issues. They all feature the four-cylinder Ingenium motor, tied to a battery-powered chargeable hybrid system. The water pump belts may break on these vehicles, causing the vehicle to overheat and rupture a coolant elbow, starting a fire if coolant gets on the turbocharger heat shield. These vehicles will get new engine coolant elbows and new water pump belts.
