Land Rover Defender - Oil Leak

This Land Rover Defender came in to us with a very unhappy owner. The owner had found oil leaking from his Land Rover all over his new block paving drive way.

Once the vehicle was with us we were able to quickly diagnose the problem as the following:

- Broken dip stick tube

- A leak at the rear of the engine sump

The Dip Stick is a rod for measuring the depth of a liquid; especially, a thin metal rod used to measure the oil level in the crankcase of an automotive engine.

If there is a leak in the dip stick tube, it can cause the oil to leak out, as well as cause your oil levels to drain, and cause damage to the engine of your vehicle.

Oil is used to lubricate the engine's moving parts and it pools in a reservoir known as its sump, at the bottom of the engine.

If there is a leak coming from the engine sump, it can cause the oil to drain, and cause damage to your engine. 

It is important to get this fixed quickly to prevent further damage to your engine.

Thankfully we were able to remove and replace the damaged parts, replace the oil filter and checked that all oils were at the correct level. Once the vehicle passed its road test, we were able return the vehicle to a much happier owner.
