  1. Has my 4.2L jumped a timing chain?

    Range Rover Classic
    What is the likelihood that my original 4.2L with 189k milesjumped a tooth on the timing chain? I’ve read ALL the history of this engine,which mainly speaks of the dropped cyl liners, leaking head gaskets and camwear, but I can’t recall reading about timing chain jumping. Truck has been purring...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have a 2014 RRS HSE - single owner/purchased new - now has 83k miles. The CEL came on and started flashing and the vehicle died. It would restart but ran very rough and the light continued to flash. We had it towed to a local shop and he’s saying the timing chain needs to be replaced. The...

  5. 2008 Timing Chain Issue?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have read multiple posts stating the Jag engines in the 2008 models generally don't have timing chain issues. Mine has 199K miles on it and a couple days ago a bank of cylinders stopped firing on while I was on the interstate. I limped it to the nearest dealership about 5 miles away and they...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello! I'm taking in a newly acquired '10 RR SC w/ 110K to the dealership to having timing chain issues addressed. I have read that the thermostat and water pump are worth worth replacing when doing the timing chain service. Are there other non timing related parts that are worth replacing while...
  7. Class action lawsuit - Timing chain

    I came across this class action lawsuit against Land Rover regarding the timing on the engines affected by the bad parts, I’m considering about jumping on this train as my car has now bend valves, anyone else has thought about doing such a thing...
  8. What is a 2004 RR worth AFTER the timing chain guides let go

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    It is all in the title. The RR is in very good condition, other than the fact that the timing chain ate the guides for lunch. Im in Maryland if that matters. I have a feeling it is worthless. 160k miles.
  9. `12 RR SC Timing Chain DIY Help

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I recently bought a 2012 RR SC with 106K miles on it. So I knew the timing chain guides would eventually need replacement. The other day it started ticking pretty bad, and got worse. Happened more sudden than I thought it might, but alas, I'm 95% the timing chains are the issue. I'm fairly...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    TD;DR Is there a particular thread with basic info/advice on what to do or look for when dealing with timing chain/tensioners repair? I know there are plenty of related threads, but I'm curious if there's one that consolidates general advice. ============================ I recently purchased...
  11. 2013 RRS SC Timing Chain Tensioner

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey everyone, so that time has come on my RR. Timing chain tensioner is going out. Lucky for me it is covered under warranty but I wanted to ask..... since the engine is gonna have to come apart to some degree, is it worth it to just have them rebuild engine while it is apart? I am not sure how...
  12. 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...

  14. 2005 L322 M62 BMW engine Camchain guides and chain.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Found out the hard way that if you hear a banging noise from the Cam timing chain, is to open the engine and replace all 3 guides. Allso do the right thing and replace the mainchain and the mainchain tentioner. I only did 215000KM's in mine. The other chains and tentioners seems to be OK.It seem...

    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...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just had Blackstone Labs analyze my oil and it was a good report. Just wondering if this analysis could be used to tell you timing chain tensioners are failing. Anybody know how it would show up in the analysis or would it? Thanks,

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, I recorded two videos with the sound of a RRSC 2011 engine I bought recently. Despite listening to many videos I still have some doubts regarding if there is any issue with the timing chain or the coupler https://youtu.be/3Vv5k8Rqw68 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Vv5k8Rqw68&t=2s Could...

    Hello, I have been doing some in-depth research regarding the timing change issue plaguing the RRS's. I have read where LR corrected this issue for the 2012-2013 non-supercharged models. Has anyone confirmed that this is accurate? Thanks in advance. Tom

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey just a quick question. I just picked up an 05 range rover. It has the BMW 4.4 engine. I bought it knowing the timing chain guides are broken and it's clattering. The truck runs great otherwise. I am going to change them this weekend but my question is after driving it back to my house, about...
  20. Timing Chain Question

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi all, I have a 2008 RR HSE with 110K miles on it. I've been lucky, and have had very few issues over the years. For example, I've had almost no repairs until 100K when my radiator went out. Then, just recently, I had to replace both front struts, which cost me around $3,000 at a shop (not the...
