  1. bleeding thermostat!

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've put a new thermostat in to cure the engine not getting up to temperature. I've bled the system as best I can and according to RAVE, but I've obviously got air in the lower half of the thermostat. As such, it's not getting hot enough to open. The gauge is getting up to the middle quite...
  2. Sinking Pedal and ABS Module Bleeding

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi, I changed the brakes all round on my 2005 Range Rover Sport 4.2 SC RHD. All parts moving freely on the brakes, no binding. Recently purchased so don't have a good baseline on the brake feel. After bleeding I get a solid pedal when engine is off but once the engine is running the pedal...
  3. New Radiator and now over heating

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi All, Im having some over heating problems after putting in a new radiator. I bought a 2008 4.4l NA Range Rover a little over a month ago. I brought the truck home and drove it on a number of long highway trips and all was well. In the garage one day when waxing the front bumper I saw that...
  4. Replace brake accumulator before bleeding system?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Haven't posted on here for nine and a half years, now my second post in half an hour! I've just replaced my rear brake lines, calipers and hoses, so now want to change fluid and bleed system. I have a new accumulator, too, and presume that this is better fitted before, rather than after...
  5. Brake bleeding issues

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    We picked up a 2000 P38 with the hopes of turning it into a light-off-roader/camping truck. It’s in pretty good shape, minus the heater core leaking and the brakes being absolutely terrible. We replaced the heater core (not awful to do!), and are now working on the brakes. At first the pump was...

  7. Bleeding ABS brakes

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi all New to this Range Rover lark after rescuing a 1989 Vogue SE from a barn. I have replaced all discs, callipers and some brake lines but having a problem with bleeding the system.

  8. 2006 HSE Brake Bleeding

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I replaced a corroded brake line leading to the rear brakes. In the process of replacement, the master cylinder emptied. Now, no matter how much I bleed the system, the brake pedal is spongy. I clearly still have air in the system--I suspect in the ABS module. I have put over a liter of...
  9. Brake bleeding - need clarity on a couple steps

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I bled the brakes on my 2001 4.6 Vogue a couple weekends ago when I replaced all the brake discs and pads and I suspect that I'll be doing it again soon as my accumulator seems to be on the way out and the dust seals on a couple of the calipers were worse for wear. I wasn't 100% confident on...

  12. '93 LWB rear brake bleeding procedure

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm writing this while ducking my head for the flaming I'll get for not referring to the factory manual, but can ANYONE briefly describe how bleeding the rear brakes in my '93 with ABS differs from a "normal" vehicle with a vacuum booster and master cylinder? I've searched this site ad nauseum...

  15. Brake Bleeding from Empty Master Cylinder

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi Guys, I changed front and rear calipers and brake hoses and unfortunately I let the master cylinder get empty. I have a power bleeder and I understand the normal order is: right rear, left rear, right front, left front. However, before I do that, what other steps do I need to take? Do I...

  17. Bleeding The Brakes & Tail Brake Lights

    Range Rover Classic
    Hey Everyone, My 91 RRC has a really stiff brake pedal and I'm assuming the braked need to bleed out. And also notice my rear brakes light do not come on when I press on the brake. Are these problems commonly connected and is it something I can do or should leave to a professional? Would love...

    I have a 97 P38 4.6 and recently notice the coolant level dropping and discovered a leak on the O rings to the heater core. I've now bypassed the heater core till I have time to struggle with replacing the O rings. I had minimal coolant loss when installing the 'U' pipe. I have bled the cooling...
  19. Any trick to bleeding brakes?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Just had the front pads and rotors changed and I've noticed a much longer brake pedal than before. There's a sizable distance in the pedal that does nothing, it almost goes to the floor. I took it to a reputable indy shop that mostly does Mercedes/Porsche/Jag/LR and the tech/owner seemed very...
  20. Bleeding heater!

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, Some will know that my Rangie has lived 14 years in the Middle East where a heater is rarely needed. Previous owner said that the heater has never worked. I have checked the heater O rings and HEVAC motors and all ok. So, I tried to bleed the heater core today. The feed pipe gets too...
