Do any of you know if a motor from a BMW 325i will fit a freelander? I know they are a problem child. I am ask in behalf of a good friend. Thank You.

The four cylinder BMW diesel was fitted to a freelander in the UK. You could probably get a complete take out drivetrain but the install would be insane and you would be polishing a 5k car.

The straight six will totally not work.

the only v6 that may fit-would be the jag x-type engine--that car uses a jatco trans also--it is similar but i can't say if the bell housing is the same--they made the x-type in a 2.5 or 3.0 v6

Seriously, these trucks are such a cluster that the best thing to do once it starts frigging up is to part it, burn it or drop it into the ocean to make a reef.
