I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that is one of the joys of a Rover. They last forever, seldom break-down, but when they do they are normally expensive. The safest thing to do is look for a qualified Land Rover Mechanic. There is nothing but trouble to be had using a "Shade-tree" mechanic. The P38 is very particular about having repairs done correctly.
