  1. Smoking like crazy --> PCV, plugs, air filter

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    MY daughter's RR (08, v8, sc, 140K miles) suddenly started smoking like crazy, lost power completely and she just barely got it back home. At first she thought she had blown a head gasket. I pulled the plugs and they looked very fouled with oil, in particular the rear two (#7 and #8 were...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey all, I've read quite a few posts on here about towing. I've towed some things with my 2008 Range Rover Westminster (Supercharged) but I need to ask this anyway. I just bought a car from half way across the country and I need to get it back to my city. I can either pay $3200 CAD ($2500...
  5. Progression or Regression? ( D1 -> RRC -> ? dare to P38 ?)

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Progression or Regression? ( D1 -> RRC -> ? dare to P38 ?) My LR history started with 1996 D1, which we daily drove for 16 years - one of the best vehicles we've ever owned. It left a huge hole in my heart when I sold it, and I was lucky to finally replace it with a 1995 RRC LWB last year. I...

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello, I am currently working on a conversion for my RR L322 2002 V8 petrol. Have been going for the exterior front bumper which means it has the new PDC sensors. Also got hold of a PDC / fog light loom from the new 2010 -> RR L322. And here is the problem, the new PDC sensors have a new...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Here some pictures I took while installing an aftermarket backup camera to my range rover sport 2006 supercharged. The camers is common on the internet and the same for the freelander. The camera will fit at one of the numberplatelighting holes. First you pull out the 'old' numberplatelighting...
  9. Vibration > 60mph but only with payload.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, I’ve done a search and couldn't find anything with my issue, I'm getting very bad vibrations (like driving over a cattle grid) when driving over 60mph but only when I have a load in the boot. Its only just noticeable with passengers but as soon as any real weight is put in the back...
  10. Coil -> Air Suspension? How does it work?

    Range Rover Classic
    I want to go back to air suspension on my 1995 Classic LWB. All the stuff is there. The lines and the air compressor. The only thing that is missing is the bags. Will I need anything else when going back? Seems like a complicated system. Also, I'd like to know how it is supposed to work...
  11. 2006 SC Westminister ~> loud fan like blowing noise at low acceleration

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    2006 SC Westminister ~> loud fan like blowing noise at low acceleration almost like a really loud howling noise upon acceleration. Kind os sounds like loud air turbine noise. When I throw it on neutral it goes away. Recently replaced alternator and currently AC is not blowing cold. Any ideas?

  14. "Notifications: 1" -> filter says none...anyone else?

    General Chatter
    "Notifications: 1" -> filter says none...anyone else? When I log in, my 'Notifications:1' is shown. But if I go to my PMs I see nothing. Further, if I use the filter feature to just show unread messages, there are none. I was just curious if this was just me or if anyone else was seeing...
  15. Towing Harness 2010/11 --> 2012 CHANGE. CAREFUL!!

    Range Rover Sport / L320
