  1. 89 Mystery issue when warm

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello friends! Hoping to get a little help here. I've had a persistent problem with my 89 Rangie “misfiring” when warm. I put misfire in quotes because it’s not really a misfire but more like all cylinders shut down for a second under load. She starts right up and idles nicely. Runs pretty well...

  5. Early EFI Vogue

    Range Rover Classic
    I’m new to this forum. In 2014 I bought an early EFI Vogue which went but was a little tired externally. This year finally got around to getting it road worthy and had the body work sorted with a complete respray. The previous owner had raised the suspension, something which I will probably...

    Range Rover Classic
    I recently installed a Holley Sniper TBI EFI system instead of the original carbs on my 84 RRC 3.5. All working great and the system has a little display with a whole bunch of readouts, one of them is 'lbs of fuel per hour'. I had a fairly long drive on Texas flatlands with various speeds so I...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi allI swapped ECUs from a 13cu on my 87 to a 14cux from a 94 3.9. Truck runs great, but the EFI light came on after a 45 minute drive. I'm wondering if the ECU is looking for a signal from a sensor not present on my 3.5. Where would you start?Again, it runs great. If the EFI light persists I...
  10. EFI woes - 1992 Classic 3.9

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello all, I am having some issues which I feel should be easy to fix, but are nagging and have persisted for the last year that I've owned the car. The main issue I'm having is the truck takes a lot of cranking before it fires when the engine is cold. When it does eventually crank over, it...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello, all. I'm having a problem with my petrol V8. The vehicle is a 1989 Range Rover Classic, with 3.5L EFI engine and 5-speed manual gearbox. When started cold, everything is fine, but only for about two minutes. Once it warms up even the littlest bit, the idle starts fluctuating very...
  15. Are plenums interchangeable?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi Rovers, I have just bought a re-built long bare 4.0L engine (expanded to a beefed up 4.6L) from Triumph Rover spares in South Australia. They also provided a 14CUX efi from a 3.9L engine which I am re-conditioning. Of course, I don't want to put a "3.9" stamped plenum on a 4.6. I was...
