  1. 1995 DSE; EAS and other faults

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello all, It's ages since I've been on here. I've had my DSE off the road for about a year after it failed the Warrant of Fitness test (New Zealand) due to leaking manifold. I don't know which one, but I took one good look at all that piping and decided it would be too expensive to sort out...
  2. '97 2.5 DSE Auto - Oil Sump Gasket replacement question.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi everyone, I've got a new engine oil sump gasket ready to fit to the 2.5 diesel BMW M51 engine in my P38. My question is, the Workshop Manual advises to use 'STC3373' sealant.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi guys, now I need a second opinion...my RR is m/y 2000 with BMW M51D25 engine. The diesel fuel injection pump was dipping so I ordered a re-manufactured Bosch VE 515 Nr 0460 406 994 injection pump. The codes on new one are the same. I fitted the pump, set the timing and renewed also the...
  13. Low ratio selection problem - not your usual one! P38 DSE

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, Firstly hello to all. I have a 1999 P38 DSE auto. I'm slowly beating the P38 gremlins, one problem at a time :mrgreen: Low ratio will select easily when the vehicle is cold. Once it warms up it just sits there "beep beep beep" telling me to select neutral. It's obviously heat related...

    Hi, I have a 1996 P38 DSE which is due (well overdue) for an oil and filter etc change. Problems are; I lost my owners' handbook in our house fire over 12 months ago (so I don't know all the items which should be serviced, or the advised service interval): the well-regarded service station...

  18. Foglights on diesel - moving trans oil cooler?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I know, some of you have done this, but I can't find the appropriate threads anymore... Do you have specific 'partslist', dimensions of cooler and oil pipes (and treads), as well as other parts (switch, wiring loom)? Maybe a source (Europe)? Could there be a conversion set out there somewhere...
  19. Throttle response 1998 P38 DSE Auto

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I'm sure this has been asked before and if so, I apologise for bringing it up again. When driving my P38 Diesel Auto, you seem to have to put in a lot of pedal movement to get it going. The auto box changes smoothly and it cruises nicely on the motorway without crazy gear changes going up hill...
