    Ok so for those that remember, I recovered a low mileage 1983 original Texas import Range Rover (3.5 Carb). It has not run since 1997 when the PO removed one head and it had been sitting since (mostly in a closed garage). PO bought plenty of spare parts and I bought the lot for cheap from the...

    Hi all, I've got an interesting issue and wanted to get a second opinion on something. So first off, I have a 1991 RRC that I got from a coworker. He bought it in 2016 and left it in our company parking lot for 2 years, where it just sat until I got the keys and title a couple months ago. I've...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2006 range rover supercharged with an odd issue. The truck misfires on cold startup, throwing misfire codes on cylinders 7 and 8. These, as I figured, are the two cylinders on the left and right side toward the back of the engine. Compression on all cylinders is ~ 190...

    Fortunately not my truck, but an almost identical 4.0 litre 2001 Australian delivered machine last week stopped by the road side following an instantaneous ramp up in temperature. Was taken on a flat bed to a specialist who diagnosed cracked block based on no compression in all 8 cylinders...

    Attempting a brake job and the front replacement went well. The rear brake replacement is not going well, car was put in brake maintenance mode and we have tried to compress the calipers with the piston compression tool. They will not compress far enough to complete re-install. We also opened...

    Hi I'm doing work on my 2000my 4.0l V8 and before i start I'd like to do a compression test. Never done this on a computerised vehicle before, so wondered if i need to do anything special? Normally, I'd pull all the plugs, disconnect to LT lead to the coil then screw in the tester and turn the...

    Hi all, I have a 2003 Range Rover with an M62tuB44 engine. The car quit on the highway and would crank but not start. Flatbedded it back to my house. I noticed that the camshaft position sensor gear had come loose on the #5-#8 bank and that the timing chain guide rails had disintegrated. I tore...

    Hello everyone! I apologize if I am in the wrong section. I just bought a 2006 range rover supercharged. It ran beautifully, fast, smooth, until all of a sudden it didn't. It started misfiring very randomly, getting at least 4-5 cylinders misfiring at a time. I got a check engine light, and a...

    Hi guys, this is my second full size Range. I just love these cars but right now my love affair is on hold due to some kind of issue that for the life of me I cannot fix. I am receiving P0307 misfire code over and over again. I have replaced plugs and coil packs. Took it to the Rover dealer and...

    Hi all, Today is my first post here... I'm a RRC fanatic from S.E.A, just purchased a '75 Suffix D, and about to start restoration on it. I've been reading a lot and found something strange on my Engine. It's got a 355 D engine with # 355 19471 D, however the compression stamped on it is...

    So did a compression test on cylinders 2,4,6 and 8 the other day, and found that I had no compression in cylinder 4. Prior to the test, when the engine bogged down on me, I assumed it was a misfire since no smoke was coming from the exhaust. Being that there was no smoke indicating that the...

    I've tried living with my 4.6 and accepting that its just a) slow and b) horrendous on fuel, but its getting a bit silly. Downhill joining a motorway it is struggling to get up to 70mph. It will get there and beyond, but only while everything else is overtaking me. I can maybe get 16-17mpg on a...

    I have received this error before and only when my shocks where all the down making the ride extremely bumpy. I took it to a shop they replaced the fuse in the compressor and it worked. Just started happening again but this time only when I drive does that warning come on. Can someone tell me...
