yes, P38.   Got half way to work and the high temp light caught my eye.  Weird thing was i wasn't getting much heat out of the heater and wanted it because it was a bit brisk.  Shut it down, pulled over (in that order) and spent a minute freaking out.   Turned the key back to the on position and the temp light had gone out and the temp was almost out of the red, strange.  Then popped the hood expecting to see a green mess everywhere.  But, all looked pretty normal.  The coolant tank was full and the hoses had pressure.  The upper hose wasn't too hot and I could squeeze it a bit with a bare hand.  Also strange.  Gently cracked the coolant tank cap and heard boiling, so I shut it.  Went back to the cab and the temp was back in the middle of the gauge!!  Over the span of maybe 2 minutes.  Started it up, stayed in the range.  So I closed the hood and drove to work and it didn't miss a beat the rest of the way.  The heater also worked great after that.  So if the heads, head gaskets and liners didn't let go then maybe I will get away with just changing the thermostat.  We will see what happens when I TRY to go home.

I heard the D2 ones with the collars are the best and don't "self extract".  I got a set out of a D2 from pick n pull and they have been good since.

Well who knows what the cause is but the current symptom is coolant all over the floor. Never been stranded in a rover before. Kinda stinks.

Collant in the car? - Sounds like you've got a blown heater core.


Had that in mine - bypassed the core till I got the enthusiasm to take the dash out to rebuilt the heater box. That was on a classic - no idea how bad that job would be on a P38

What did I do to mine yesterday - stared at the engine a little to try and get some enthusiasm to putting the heads back on!

Time allowing - will try today.

Coolant on the passenger side floor on a p38 is either a bad clamp on the heater core or bad heater core. It's a full days work pulling that out. Did it twice on two different P38's.

Nick if you don't already have these on your truck I would suggest you do!  they will never come loose and they are a Rover product used on D2's!

Replaced rear half shafts on the LR3 - not bad.

 

Then in the rush to finish, took off on a test drive with my phone sitting on the front bumper  - bad.

Did a quick oil change and cleared the clogged AC drain lines. I was going to change the diff oil until I discovered both drain plugs were completely deformed from being dragged across rocks, so I need to figure out how to get those out.

I got a very late start due to getting an unexpected call from my brother who was supposed to meet us at the warehouse to do some work on his 4Runner at the same time. He needed a jump, it wouldn't start.

I headed over to his place, which was 30 minutes in the opposite direction. I jumped it and it wouldn't stay running and the battery light was on, so I got to change the alternator in his apartment parking lot, which was loads of fun. At least it was relatively easy.

Definitely a longer night than I had planned.

Ha. I wish.

 

The buddy that was with me on the trip a couple weekends ago works for a wheel manufacturer so I get to use their warehouse lift occasionally.

A wheel manufacturer you say...hmm. Do we have Nexus options there? LR4 steel wheels sound interesting...

They make lightweight race wheels, primarily for BMWs. They tend to be some variation of BBS designs (I know, big shock). 

 

Here's a quick 'shop of an LR4 with some of their wheels....LOL

Removed water pump hoping to find a sheared impeller, but didn't. Then cursed myself for removing a perfectly good water pump and spent the better part of the next 2 hours trying to clean the old gasket off. Ordered new thermostat. Bypassed heater core while the wife detailed the coolant out of the carpet. Q
