1 minute, 26 seconds Read

V8-powered versions of the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport could catch fire due to a engine oil cooler fault.


Jaguar Land Rover Australia has recalled 18 examples of its 2023 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, due to a common fault between the vehicles’ engine oil coolers which can lead to a fire.

The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a manufacturing defect, the threaded nut securing the engine oil cooler hose may not have been tightened sufficiently. As a result, the cooler hose could become loose and detach.

“If this occurs, engine oil could leak into the engine bay and accumulate in the presence of an ignition source resulting in a vehicle fire.

“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders, and/or damage to property.”
