    Why do Land Rover transmission units fail?

    Found a short piece on Youtube from Ashcroft Transmissions giving common reasons & thought is was worth a look if you hadn't seen it before - LINK I would quite like to see more of this type of "ask the expert" style reporting from people who know their stuff, explaining why things fail.

    Clutch/gearbox problem and break fluid lead!

    Hi I have two potential problems with my Series 3 1972 88" Land Rover! 1.

    I recently acquired a 'failed' GM 5L40-E transmission,which is used in the '02-'06MY 3.0 litre diesel models, so I thought I'd do a similar write-up for that transmission too. My particular transmission was reported as having lost reverse gear. It should be said that the 5L40-E transmission is...

    transmission noise + vibration

    I have develped a squeaking noise coming from the transmission under slight load. I have a 4.6 P38 1998 (R plate) It sounds like tweeting birds, (digga-digga-digga-digga) like a dry bearing. It's not all that loud - It seems to be most noticable at about 30 MPH, and I don't think it is engine...
