Land Rover Defender Head Gasket Replacement

Why do I need to replace my Land Rover Defender head gasket?

The head gasket in your Land Rover Defender is crucial for sealing the cylinder head and engine block, enabling the engine to maintain the correct compression and facilitating the flow of coolant and oil to the top of the engine.

If the head gasket fails it can lead to a mix of coolant and oil – all detrimental to the well-being of your Land Rover Defender, especially if you continue driving!

A head gasket replacement typically starts at around $1200 and can exceed $3000 depending on additional damage and necessary work.

Indications of a blown head gasket include visible coolant leaks, decreased coolant levels, engine overheating, white exhaust smoke, and discoloured oil. If you suspect a blown head gasket, it's best to turn off your Land Rover Defender, avoid driving it, and schedule a head gasket inspection with a mechanic. Failure to do so could result in irreversible engine damage.
