  1. Erratic gauges.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    On a 1996 p38 4.0, both my temperature and fuel gauges are acting erratically, the first shows car overheating ( even the red light comes on for few seconds) as I have just started driving in a blizzard. The fuel gauge shows 1/4 of a tank when I just filled gas, but it corrects itself later as...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi Guys, I have been sorting out a bunch on this Rover I purchased a few months ago and now want to try to figure this erratic shift from 3rd to 4th occasionally. I noticed the MAF looks brand new with a new white sticker on it but I need to look closely as I think the previous owners...
  3. Erratic temp gauge, coolant leak and dash removal

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Greetings from Melbourne Australia. This post will be long but I’ll be as concise as possible. A quick search from previous posts didn’t reveal a similar problem with my RHD 2001 P38. But there is always someone here who knows or can help. My temperature gauge started behaving erratically; it...
  4. Coolant temperature gauge erratic

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi everyone, I’m in need of some help. I noticed a couple of weeks ago my rig was running cold according to the temperature gauge in the truck. Considering it’s an 06, 4.4 jag engine full size with 100K+, I assumed the thermostat was stuck open or faulty. I ordered the replacement from Atlantic...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Unfortunately I find myself back on the forums again as I have been pulling my hair out once again with an issue that I can't seem to make sense of. A few months ago my 4.0L V8 98 P38 started idling erratically whereby it would start fine but within about a second the idle speed was around...
  6. 2010 RR erratic wipers, stop and stuck at odd angles - fixed

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I would put it on auto and wipers went full speed for 10 sec then would stop. or I would blip them once and same result. Then would stop working all together I researched this a bit, and most pre-2010 units seem to have issues with relays. After hunting for relays and replacing them with no...
  7. Erratic high idle and intermittent misfire

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    On my Bosch/Thor engine, I'm having a couple of issues that I'm unsure if are related. I don't have a Motronic license for my Nanocom yet. Either in gear or neutral/park, the engine speed seems to randomly increase. I can come to a stop, and the idle drops to 7-800, and then a few seconds later...

    Range Rover Classic
    My 91 classic runs fine most of the time but if it has spent some time at low speeds/idle eg city driving or low range rough tracks, when I get it on the highway and get up to around 3,000 rpm it starts to miss. It is getting worse and today it stalled a couple of times on the highway after...
  14. erratic interior light

    Range Rover Classic
    My interior light has started coming on sometimes when I hit a bump and then after a while it goes out. If I bang the roof, sometimes it goes out and sometimes it doesn't and ditto if I slam the tailgate. Probably a short somewhere - anyone struck anything similar? Any ideas where the best...
  15. EAS driving me insane. Erratic movements.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So my EAS is giving me nothing but headaches. The problem is this...the front suspension is rising up and down as if commanded to by some unknown gremlin. Often goes like this: compressor will run for ten or fifteen seconds, shut off. Then the front suspension, together, will sink through normal...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So I've noticed recently that while stomping on the gas pedal (to the floor), the tach will sometimes drop down to 0 and back and act all erratic. Also during this time, sometimes, the EAS truck/arrow light comes on, although there is no action on the christmas tree just steady solid light on...
  19. erratic back up sensors on '06 RR

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but after a quick search, I wasn't able to find much information. All the sensors, front and back are working (making the clicking noise) but they seem to have a mind of their own when it comes to actually working and not going into fault mode (loud rear...
