Range Rover Evoque to comply to stricter RDE2 emissions tests

Range Rover tells us that their new Evoque has become the first luxury compact SUV to be certified under stringent new NOx emissions targets, ‘Real Driving Emissions’ stage 2 (RDE2), ahead of the official legislative introduction for new models in January 2020. All Jaguar and Land Rover models already meet the standards required by the first phase of the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) testing procedure, which came into effect in September 2018.

Conti to expand timing belt and water pump range

The debate continues: Should you also replace the water pump when changing the timing belt or not? For Continental, it’s a no-brainer: Always replace the water pump at the same time as changing the timing belt! Why? Changing a timing belt is a very time-consuming repair. It would therefore be irresponsible towards the customer not to change the wear parts at the same time and risk more fitting work – and therefore additional costs – if the water pump fails. With its kits, Continental makes it easy for workshops to change everything in one go. Because they contain all the...
