    From Ford 8600l was the classic RR part a tight fit? Hello Ford, not quite, but enough to make me think I could thread the hole, couldn't accurately measure the thread, sure I got it right in the end, but was a loose fit I wasn't happy with, so used plastic metal to pad it out and works as...

    After getting off the phone with a customer service representative at British Atlantic, he reminded me that the 4.4L Jaguar engines were also used in some Ford models. After reading the Wikipedia article on the AJ-V8 engine, I see that the same engine was also used in the Lincoln LS, as well as...

  5. Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Awaiting our 2017 to arrive any day now and just wondering if this is something they may have changed with the 2017 models with all the new tech? I do find it quite annoying that when you lock the vehicle via remote and want to confirm it is locked by pushing a second time on the remote, it...
  6. Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I've been reading about the various engines used in Range Rovers over the years, and see a lot of conflicting opinions on this. I'm quickly realizing that the newer Jag 5.0 motors will have timing chain & guide issues, it is only a matter of time. So this shifts my focus to the previous RR's...

    I've been lurking here for sometime. It's a great site with plenty of information for those unfortunate to own one of these aluminum timebombs.... Anyhow, I've been collecting parts for my SBF conversion for my '99 HSE. So far I've collected a donor engine, Ford bellhousing and a spare ZF...

    Hi everyone - been a long time since I've needed to post. My driver's side window won't close/go all the way up - I get the 'window blocked' message half way and then I try and do what the manual says and hold the button all the way down to neutralise the anti trap function and I get the...

    2013 Range Rove headlamps and taillamps look too much like a 2013 Ford Explorer?! Why did Land Rover make 2013 Range Rover headlamps and taillamps look so similar to the 2013 Ford Explorer?! Did the new Indian run Land Rover borrow parts from Ford?

    I got these yahoos on the bass boat board telling me that the RRS utilizes the Ford tranny and power train parts......though Ford sold it in 2008

    My RRS is coming off warranty 11/1/2012 and I was hoping to follow in the footsteps of a lot of the other members of this forum and pick up Ford's ESP Premium Care. However it looks like http://www.zeiglerfordesp.com has removed Land Rover as an option. Can someone confirm this is the case. I’m...

    Caution: This is a long rant Just wanted to give a quick recount of my experience with Ford ESP ext. warranty. In my case, it was the cheapest ext. warranty for my '08 HSE that covered another 3yr from factory warranty or 100k miles since new, so total coverage of 7 years or 100k from first in...

    Hi Guys, (I'm a newbie here although I'm a senior technical contributor on an MB site) Q1. Did the Torsen (centre) Diff on the L322 change significantly at the introduction of the revised (Ford) diesel engine in 2006/7? Q2. Does L322 still have a Torsen diff or is Torque distribution management...

    I did a search for this and came up blank. I remember telling someone way back the 5.0L wasn't a Ford motor. One of the salesmen at our dealer here said that it was. I know the 2.0L Ecoboost is a Ford. So the question is: is the 5.0L a Ford design? If it is a Ford, JLR did quite a few tweaks on it.

    Chatter here indicates it's possible to get a reasonably priced extended warranty for a 40K mile 2008 RRS from the brokers at Zeigler Ford. QUESTION: Does anyone here have first-hand experience with the general attitude of dealer or independent shops getting paid under this policy? I am coming...
