    Bypassing IRD Cooler?

    One of my Freelanders has a water leak from the IRD cooler. Is it possible to bypass this without causing any damage? I've heard to replace the cooler, the IRD needs removed but I haven't time at the moment to do this.

    why is my Defender radiator cold?

    I've noticed that my 300TDi Defender radiator is cold, even after a twenty mile drive with a horse trailer on. Temp gauge reads normal except for two minute-long episodes in the last year when it just touched "hot". Top hose and expansion tank are hot. Engine runs fine, not losing coolant. I...
