Hi everyone. Brand new ranger rover owner as of two days ago.
It’s a 1997 4.0 petrol.
Bought it quite a distance away and drove it back home on motorway roughly 160miles with absolutely no problems. Was quick no noises, great acceleration etc.
As of today it starts up absolutely fine every single time but the problem I’m having is it will constantly stall/cut out at junctions. Iv watched the Rev needle struggle as I put it in to first or neautral slowing down to a halt and suddenly it cuts out. And it’s happwning every single time without fail now. Drove it a fair distance on motorway close to home too hoping to give it a good run but still is doing it.
It’s also acting extremely underpowered/sluggish revving up through the gears. To the point I pulled out of a junction on a roundabout and a lorry was right up behind me as I had my foot completely to the floor in second watching it struggle to get up to speed.
But again, it starts every single time it cuts out with no issue.
There’s no signs of mayo or smell from oil cap, plenty of oil in, plenty of coolant, no smoke from exhausts.
Panicking a little bit now 😓
