  1. Checking out a Land Rover...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Like others have said, you an never have to much info, and this site will keep you informed and answer almost every question you can conceive. One item on the model your considering is PCV Valve, in your climate it can freeze causing what seems like a catastrophic engine failure, with oil...
  2. crumpled arm rest 03 RR

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    If I remember, to have one replaced by the dealer required a hole new door card. And in know time it will look the same. also others have had a uplostry shop recovering it means having both redone with a different material. I lived with ours for 8 years, and seeing everyone's rover had the...
  3. Coolant Leak

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    As said it's an easy DIY getting access to the back of the motor. You may have lost the O-rings in the cooling tubes that run under the manifold and so you may have to also remove the water pump to fix. Not that hard to do just time consuming and messy. Also be sure to use the right coolant...
  4. Air Suspension the front of my Range Rover will not raise

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Re: Air Suspension the front of my Range Rover will not raise It could be something as simple as a ride hight sensor, and not the air spring. Mark
  5. Catastrophic Oil Leak - Cold Weather

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just an FYI: To access the two hoses you can remove (very easy) the air (heating and cooling) could from the firewall, just two 13 mill nuts, pull up the rubber seal and it lifts out leaving a ton of room to work. I replace my PCV as a DIY only hard part was getting the small tube that inside...
  6. Boosted Truck inside fetaures not working HELP!!!

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    In a different direction it sounds like maybe when the battery went dead, (and this happen to me) the computer put it self in Transport mode, this only lets the vehicle start. Everything else is off line. The fix was a trip to RR to be plugged into the Tec ll, and then the old trick of...
  7. Battery dies. Shop says its the fuse box

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Sunroof drains maybe clogged. As for the battery drain, every time I have parked at the south end of the Parking structor at the airport, and have been gone for say a week. The battery would be dead. Seem that the problem is that the radar is strong enough (RF scatter) that it keeps setting...
  8. Furious about this one, failed inspection due to ebrake

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    First: I'm glad that in Calif we only have to deal with Scam Smog inspections. Second: After our new then Corvette rolled down the drive with the (I thought Emergency Brake set) they (GM) said that it is only a parking assist system and that the car needs to be in gear. Not and Emergency brake...
  9. Mk III 2003-2005: best in class?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Buying a 03 to 05/6 Range Rover is like a Box of Chocolate, you never know what you'er going to get. On the other hand I have lived with an 03 since new, and experience all of the problems except the Transmission (still going strong with 300k on it) But like it's said, each RR has it's own...
  10. My top radiator hose blew off today...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Not that it matters, and it's been some time since I have posted here, but our MK3 (03) now has over 300k, you can see my post from 2009, and since then I have replace the alternator witch meant adding new coolant. I truly recommend that you use the BMW or Range Rover Blue. As all the coolant...
  11. Winter and Trail Driving

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Also check out the Pirelli Snow and Ice. It's more tire then you would think by looking at it. I used them on ours and had great results. mark
  12. Help!! removed spark plug and oil leaked into plug hole

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I wouldn't worry about the oil in the cylinder from around the spark plug, but if there was enough in the hole around the plug there could have been enough to get into the connector point of the coil pack. (we went thru this when ours had a PCV valve fail and cause oil to fill most of the spark...

  14. Real World Reliability Issues

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    See my post a Fond Fair Well. Almost all the problems we had with our's, all happen in the first 50k, and only one major problem (that was the PCV freezing up) over the next 150+k. Mark
  15. A Fond Fair Well Friends

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    First I have been a Range Rover owner since 1988 with only a one year break. (1988 RR, 1995 LWB, and Mk3) All of them gave great service, with the 88 going 300+k for us, the LWB rolling 275K, and the Mk3 leaving us at 210k. Right now to be honest I'm sad and not sure what will replace the Mk3...
