Discovery 3 Gearbox Mega Flush

Vehicle:  Discovery 3 2.7 TDV6

Problem: Preventative measure, 127,000 miles


JGS4X4 recently had a Jaguar Land Rover employee bring his Discovery 3 2.7 TDV6 to us for a gearbox mega flush with 127,000 miles on the clock. This was a preventative measure to keep his Discovery 3 running smoothly.  It is very common for the gearboxes to start to show problems from 80,000 miles. In most cases, an ATF flush will eliminate these problems with the new fluid.

With the gearbox flushed, adaptions reset JGS4x4 had another happy JLR customer!

Discovery 3’s, Discovery 4’s and Range Rover Sports with the ZF-6HP automatic gearbox should have a lovely smooth gear change. However, these gearboxes are supposed to be sealed for life so no service schedule includes changing the gearbox fluid.

As with any hardworking oil, the gearbox fluid in these gearboxes can get hot and generally worn out. Common signs are torque converter judder, slow and erratic gear changes and what feels like clutch slip as the engine revs but the speed does not increase.

JGS4X4 carry out the gearbox Fluid Flush at our workshop near Kettering. It takes approx. 1 hour. This is a while you wait service and you are welcome to have a hot drink and watch if you like!
