  1. RRC specific or general mechanic?

    Range Rover Classic
    A good buddy of mine owns a general mechanic shop and I typically use him for regular maintenance work for my other cars. I recently picked up a RRC and like all of them, it needs some work. Should I trust my friend, who's never worked on a RRC before, or reach out to a RRC specialist? I am...
  2. L322 General Opinions

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    It's been awhile since I've been here. Almost 5 years since the liner slipped in my P38. Although I still have it and I swear I'll get around to it it still sits in the garage waiting for me to build up the short block. I've been driving my (close eyes) Discos since then. Now the reason for my...
  3. General Towing Questions - Who tows? Also, third row seat?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey all - I'm in the market for a new full sized SUV. I towed a 24ft trailer with a weight of about 5,000 lbs and a 500lb hitch or tongue weight with my 2015 Escalade. I moved out of the country and moving back and looking to purchase a RR. The only thing that has held me back from purchasing...
  4. Misfire and general blehhhhh

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey! I've got a 1995 P38 4.6L and it's not so happy... One day, I was driving along, everything was fine... Nek minnit (day)... Horrible misfire at idle, sluggish throttle response, stumbly(?) from idle, kinda like a duh-DUH when I open the throttle. Vibrating at idle, lacking power etc...
  5. Key battery low and general paranoia

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Dear Forum I am still learning to live with the inconsistencies after two years of Rangey ownership. Recently on another thread I described the Keycode Lockout that came out of the blue. I sent BECM and door latch to Marty who quickly and efficiently unlocked the one and refurbed the other...
  6. '93 LWB 4.2 General Suspension Q's

    Range Rover Classic
    So I recently scooped up a '93 4.2 County LWB for $1200 and have been loving it! I've got all the important stuff straightened out, so I decided to buy some larger tires and, well... you know. Now I want to get 2" lift and have been looking at the TerraFirma MD setup (OPINIONS?!) The previous...
  7. Gear switch fault- General fault

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello again ive finally got around to hooking my laptop up with RSW comms onto my 04 L322 rr vogue after the TRANS FAIL SAFE message came up. I replaced my battery because after taking a good look at it, it was the wrong one ( only 735 CCA) but the alarm still comes up and it reads Gear switch...
  8. General Information Inquiry

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello Forum I've always been fascinated with the Range Rover and have reached the point where I want to buy one. I am a current bmw (and Lexus) owner so I am not looking to get anything prior to 2006 (i.e the n62 in the years prior) Could someone please refer to some sort of a newbie link...
  9. General RRC V8 tune up

    Range Rover Classic
    HI everyone 1992 RRC 3.9 EFI My back box has just blown so my thoughts went to SS exhausts. You know how it is when you start trawling the web? Well now I have realised my engine is good but lazy and needs waking up. First order will be a Janspeed SS exhaust I know there are others but this...
  10. General feedback on 2010-2012 RR Sport...coming from GL450

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Figured I would do a bot of research on the 2010-2012 RR Sports as my wife absolutely loves them. Seems that there are two very different camps on RR ownership. I'll start with the negative/bad...hearing that they are insanely expensive to repair, spend more time in the shop than with owner...
  11. RRS SC Upgrades and general queries

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi Everyone, I’ve not long taken ownership of a 2006 RRS SC and there are a couple of things I’m a little in the dark about. I’ve had a look through the manual and on the top left of the dash there are three buttons, one that looks like a semi flat tyre, one for the DSC and the third is...
  12. New to RR. General Questions

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I ordered a 2015 RRS HSE 3 weeks ago. I have never paid MSRP for a car or waited so long for it. I know demand is high, so I get it. Just curious what others who have ordered a 2015 have been told for delivery dates. My dealer said 2/15 - 3/15. About 6-7 months. Also, is anyone getting...
  13. 1995 RRC Fuse 18 and Fuse analysis in general

    Range Rover Classic
    Moving on to real electrical issues as opposed to imagined ones (i.e. the lighter blowing charges post that "gilbertd" just put a fork in [thanks again for that spot on diagnosis) Fuse 18 is blowing as soon as ignition switch II selected. This fuse has many mouths to feed per the Rave...
  14. Pics of stock size 18" General Grabber AT2

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Like the title says, I'm looking for pics of factory size General Grabber AT2's on P38's. I can find pics of larger than stock sizes and also 16" sizes but haven't found any in the stock 255/55/18 sizes. I'm pretty sure I want to put these on one of the p38's (the other one just got new General...
  15. 285/60R18 General Grabber AT2

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After months of trying to decide, I have finally settled on a size and tire and could not be happier. Can't wait to see how they perform on trail. It does rub on the front mud flaps while turning at single-digit speeds and while turning in reverse, but I'm removing them this weekend...
  16. P38 suspension: two general design/engineering questions, please.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    P38 suspension: two general design/engineering questions, please. Read a lot on here about the air systems - faults/diagnoses/remedies - but never seen anyone question the life of,or possible problems with, the conventional shocks that appear to be an integral part of the whole system. What is...

  18. Some general questions and advice

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Ok, I might be in. Position soon to buy a second hand N reg Range Rover autobiography with all the toys etc. I will hopefully be paying 3 k for it. That no doubt sounds cheap, but there is a reason for this. Pros New reconditioned engine fitted at 50k miles by main dealer 6 years ago Battery...
  19. General Transmission (03-05) question

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I happened to be sitting around reading the Owners Manual on Rave and was reading about fuel mileage. In the manual it says you can shift into Neutral at a stop to increase fuel mileage. That made me wonder about shifting during a slow down. The general question is how would this affect the...
  20. 1996 P38 "Maracas" rattle from front end when hitting speed bumps or bumps in general

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    1996 P38 "Maracas" rattle from front end when hitting speed bumps or bumps in general My son describes the rattle sound like maracas when you hit a speed bump or a pothole in the street. First thought was maybe the caps on the lug nuts were worn or loose but I don't hear it from the back...
