Hi all,

I am having the same issue. 2017 Disco sport with 24k miles. Last month when starting my car there was an explosion under the hood and green liquid dripping from the front of the engine...towed to dealer...was told by LR it was a coolant leak and the hose was replaced, leak resolved. Yesterday the low coolant light came back on. Taking it back to the dealer. Any theories on what exactly is the issue with this model? Someone mentioned a water pump leaking, is this the culprit????....I will say the recommendation by LR to top off coolant is not acceptable.

If the hose ruptured it is not likely the water pump is the problem. The solution from Land Rover to add more coolant after the air bubbles have worked their way out of all the crevices seems reasonable. Somebody is always mentioning things that may not be the problem with your vehicle. Add 200 cc of water and if the light comes back on, worry, or waste a day going to the dealer.


I had the thermostat in my Merc changed out and it took several weeks for all the air bubbles to escape. I had an Audi that had a special valve designed to bleed the air from the system but was the only car I have owned in over 50 years to have a bleeder valve.
