Land Rover Recalls 2,957 Range Rovers

Recall From: Land Rover North America, Inc.

Models: Land Rover Range Rover Year: 1999

Number Involved: 2,957

Dates of Manufacture: July 1998 - January 1999

Defect: On certain sport utility vehicles, the cast alloy throttle body is heated by coolant from the cooling system to prevent icing in extremely cold weather conditions. This coolant passes through a small attachment (plate) to the throttle body, which utilizes a cork gasket. The cork gasket can fail and allow coolant to leak from the interface between the de-icer plate and the throttle body. Should this coolant collect on high temperature regions of the engine, the coolant could ignite.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the throttle body gasket, de-icer attachment, and securing hardware. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during December 2000/January 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Land Rover at 1-301-731-9040.
