    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a tdv8 4.4 and when accelerating hard the car seems like its hitting the rev limiter but its not as the revs are at 2000-2500. the harder the acceleration the worse the hesitation is . could this be a fuel problem . regards Andy

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    So last night driving up a mountain road to a cabin we are staying at, the rover engine caught of fire with no warning. Not sure yet what the cause is, but this is very frustrating since I’m really good about maintenance on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am going to be driving from the UK to Norway and some of the countries I will be passing through need a fire extinguisher mounted in the cabin. The most obvious place is on the bulkhead that the front seats are mounted on but I am slightly nervous about drilling the two holes I need. In my...
