  1. The end of an era...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Very well said, thank you. I have a buddy who loves old Alfa Romeo's because of the driving experience they provide. He could have a Subaru but he doesn't want one. I could have purchased a diesel GMC truck that would be cheaper to own but I don't want one. I have fixed my old P38 by the...
  2. Losing my mind - 2012 (L322) Rover Issues

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Sorry for thread wander ddm2k. I'm not an oil expert but I look at two things with oil, its ability to lubricate, and its cleanliness. These engines were designed with synthetic in mind, so I think it important to use it. It seems that manufactures that design for expensive synthetic then want...
  3. Losing my mind - 2012 (L322) Rover Issues

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Its people like you that keep the market for beautiful, used Range Rovers so low. I guess I should say thank you. I would never have been able to afford 3 used Range Rovers to a put a combined >200k miles on. My latest, 2012 SC is one amazing vehicle. My previous P38 is still in the driveway...
  4. 2010 SC SC rebuild and timing

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    In my '12 FFSC maintenance records, there was warranty work to replace the pipes and hose routed below the supercharger. The following were replaced: LR090630 Tube - Water inlet LR092992 Tube - Water Out LR047457 Hose - Throttle LR028136 Tube - Oil Cooler LRN049990 Tube - Thermostat LR045239...
  5. The Saga Continues...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I'm surprised Carmax doesn't consider it normal wear and tear given the number needing this job at about this mileage. When researching the '10-'12 models this came up countless times. I decided I wanted it anyway, I love the power of these engines.
  6. The Saga Continues...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Sure, Audi used them from '99 - '02 on the 4.2 V8. They are quieter but don't usually last as long. Cheaper to replace but need it more often.
  7. The Saga Continues...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    You can debate the $8k but planning for this job at this mileage seems like a good idea based on its track record. A person could argue that an old push rod engine with simpler valve train or a straight 6 wouldn't have this issue and that would be a valid point. But if you want big V8 power...
  8. The Saga Continues...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So you find needing timing hardware at 90k that unusual? You are driving a heavy, luxury, high powered european V8. My Audi V8 needs belts at a recommended 80-100k miles. Newer versions of that engine went to chains that go 150k but require engine removal for that service. The Jag V8's are...
  9. Can anyone running a Voyager rack, comment on wind noise?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    That's the question. I had a simple two bar Thule setup on my P38 but looking at the expedition style Voyager rack for my L322. My only concern is wind noise on the highway. Anyone have real world experience to share?
  10. 2010 RR Full Size Brakes Repair

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Replacing your brakes is a great DIY project to get experience doing your own work. There isn't really anything different than other cars. As far brands, I can't help, haven't had to do my 2012 yet. I tried EBC on my P38 and went back to OEM. The L322 shop manual describes the process...
  11. CD changer replacement options

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    No, should have clarified commercial CD's, inserted the correct side up.
  12. CD changer replacement options

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Two days ago, I purchased a new to me L322. Its a 2012 SC, well taken care of, records, 62k miles. Its a bit of an adjustment from my old P38 but mostly in a good way. I have the HK Logic7 stereo with in dash 6 disc changer, apparently by Clarion. I'm getting an "invalid disc" error that was...
  13. P0019-00 bank 2 sensor 2 - AJ133

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I'm always appreciative of someone taking the time to post their experiences. An L322 is in my future so trying to read up. I'm struggling to get used to the new format, didn't even notice this post until today. Hidden in plain site I guess.
  14. Damper Recommendations

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    When stock shocks are good quality and not super expensive, why change? Shock quality is obviously important but so is the valving. I tried Bilsteins years ago on my first P38 and felt the valving wasn't right and went back to stock. So "higher" quality didn't really work out. Of course if...
  15. Rover Raiser manual or instructions

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I carry a small 12V lighter socket compressor. I carry it to adjust my trailer tire pressures anyway. Its slow but does the job. I don't see why a bike pump wouldn't work, you can certainly get enough pressure with one. But it would try your patience for sure.
  16. Rover Raiser manual or instructions

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Are you asking for installation instructions or use instructions? Like mentioned above, you tee in the schrader valve to each bag line. In use, I didn't find a pressure gauge to be useful. I just keep a measuring tape in my compressor bag and measure from the center of the wheel to the fender...
  17. New Calipers / Pads... still dragging front driver's wheel

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The pads are dragging because they aren't retracting properly. Cleaning the pins and caliper might help but you might need to refresh the calipers. Eventually the bores get gummed up and the piston don't return well. You can get replacement seals. But I would fix the leak first.
  18. Coilover Conversion Longevity

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    a tired debate for sure. I tow quite a bit and wouldn't give up the ability to auto level. One of these days mechanics will get used to air springs and stop suggesting them to be removed. Most SUV's these days either have air springs or its a top level option. Not to mention a number of cars...
  19. Don't start...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I still find it hard to believe you can have a partial electrical connection, its always seemed to me that you should have all or nothing. But I had an obvious example two days ago with a tractor. Was replacing the battery with a new, fully charged version. I was in a hurry and had to remove...
  20. Adding an OEM Tire Pressure Monitoring System to RRSC

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    This doesn't answer your question but have you ever owned a car with a TPMS? Its super annoying, usually problematic, and something I would prefer to retrofit to be gone. No experience with it on a 2010 RR but its probably like every other car.
