  1. 5.0l l322 s/c fuel filter

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a 2011 l322 s/c with 60k miles on it. Workshop manual states a 10 yr/150k mile service interval. Does anyone know if this filter ( in the fuel tank) is more of a screen (stone stopper) or a fine filter( say 20 micron) that needs to be serviced more frequently,say every 30k miles? Any...
  2. 5.0L Tensioner/guide replacement. Official zip tie method

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Please refer to this link for my experience doing this job. The same engine is used in both of these vehicles so the procedure applies to the Sport as well. https://www.rangerovers.net/forum/6-range-rover-mark-iii-l322/335252-5-0l-tensioner-guide-replacement-official-zip-tie-method.html#post2262376
  3. 5.0L Tensioner/guide replacement. Official zip tie method.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have just completed this tensioner/guide replacement on my 2011 L322 SC with 85000 miles on the clock by following the official JLR short cut method which uses a zip tie to secure the chain and it worked like a charm. I have come across a couple of threads on this forum and the Sport forum but...
  4. Timing chain guide rail, how to get it out??? '11 5.0L

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So far so good I think, with this procedure. Ended up ordering the crank pulley holder tool to get the crankshaft bolt out. Easy once I had the tool. Anyhow... Doing the zip tie method. Used multiple zip ties and other visual checks to make sure no skipped teeth, or at least I'll know if it...
  5. Water Pump Replacement for 5.0L RR SC

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi folks, I have a couple questions regarding the water pump replacement procedure on the 2010-2012 Range Rovers w/ the 5.0L motor. (FYI, I have the workshop manual docs already) 1) Are the two metal water pump gaskets (included with my Beck-Arnley pump) installed dry? Or is some sealant or...
  6. 5.0L timing chain - zip tie pix?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    First, 33k mi on my '11 RR HSE. knocking wasn't bad sometimes, other times I could really hear it. no codes/CEL. planning to keep the truck a long time, so might as well deal with it now while the problem is relatively contained. I'll share some notes on the process when I'm done. I'm trying...
  7. Oil Change Test - drain vs vacuum (5.0L V8)

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey guys, I read that vacuuming removes more than the old-school drain method, but according to my little test last night, that wasn't exactly true. I think that I did everything per LR procedure, but feel free to chime in if you disagree: - warmed up the oil by running the truck for 10 mins...
  8. 2011 HSE with the 5.0L motor - what years?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a 2011 HSE with the 5.0L motor (not the supercharged). The motor has seized (badly) to the point that not a whole lot is salvageable. I am looking to find a donor car in a salvage auction to extract the motor. The question is: in what years was this motor used? So I can narrow down a...
  9. Who has tuned their 5.0L SC?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I’m looking for a reputable tuner for my 2015.5 RRS 5.0L SC. Primarily for a bit more power but also to adjust the extremely laggy throttle response. Who has tuned their RRS? Any issues with the dealer? I still have warranty for a few years, so dealer detection is a huge factor for me. What...
  10. 2010 5.0l SC - Timing Slip

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi there, My garage is just about to fit a recon engine to my L322 after the timing slipped and basically destroyed my valves and pistons (and god knows what else). I saw the engine with the head off so have seen the damage but what I'm unclear about is how the timing could slip in the first...
  11. What are the potential problem areas of 4.4L vs 5.0L Rovers?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    From what I've read, both 4.4 and 5.0 are pretty reliable. What should a buyer look out for when shopping for one vs. the other?

  13. 5.0L S/C dieseling noise

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My 2010 supercharged is making a "dieseling"/ engine run-on noise when i turn the engine off. Its running great otherwise but the noise is concerning. Any Ideas on why its making this noise? Thanks
  14. has anyone used 5.0L oil weights other than 5w20

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    5w20 seems like it is too thin an oil for the 5.0l especially when considered the only recd weight worldwide under every condition. i have my doubts with its performance when it gets hot or under long periods of moderate to hard accelleration. i have been thinking of trying 0w30 or 0w40. Does...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello Everyone, I just started to notice with windows down driving slowly I can hear a faint rapid ticking noise on my vehicle, occurs only from 1000-1500 rpm. Does anyone else have this? Btw windows have to be down, the noise can't be heard with windows up.
  16. Do not get downpipes for the 5.0L SC

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi guys, I don't know which Arab Sheikh thought it was a good idea to put catless downpipes on the 5.0L SC RRS. Do not do it. The car becomes STUPID loud and extremely raspy. I'm talking louder than my Harley Davidson. There is a slight power gain, not worth it, unless super loud is your...

  19. 5.0L engine knock

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have had my 2011 Mark III now for about 2 weeks. I have been hearing an intermittent tapping, knock in the engine. This usually happens after the engine is at operating temp, stop, and restart within 15, or 20 min. Anything out there on this issue? Would like some fodder for the service...
