  1. Higher Mileage Purchase for limited driving

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hey guys/gals, I've always liked the look of the older RR's, and had a 2012 RR Sport HSE with 92,000 miles pop up at a dealer today for a reasonable price and wanted opinions on the purchase. I've been keeping an eye out for the past few months for a vehicle that I could enjoy on my short...
  2. Higher Mileage Advice

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    So.... I bought a 2012 Evoque coupe new back in 2012. LOVED it. At the time I had a long commute, and by 2014 racked up almost 50K miles. I then made the horrible mistake of trading it in for an Acura. Since then, my commute has gotten so little that after turning in the Acura at the end of the...
  3. Can stepper motor (IACV) affect higher engine speeds?

    Range Rover Classic
    Trying to troubleshoot the mysterious (yet common, if I go by past posts) intermittent surging, stumbling, idling issues I'm having on my 93 LWB, and I'm wondering if the IACV can have an effect at higher engine speeds. I replaced it less than 2k miles ago, doesn't seem like that COULD be the...

  7. Lower temp, higher charge voltage ...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, Beast now circulating gently in Portugal. I must say it is nice not to have the a/c on flat out as it was in Dubai. But, the charge voltage has increased from 14.1 max to 14.2V. No, it is not my imagination. Ambient is low to mid 20s C instead of 35 to 45 ....

  9. Coolant level higher than before?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I replaced my expansion tank 4th one and installed new cap. I think the last tank failed because the float wasn't working and I added too much fluid which in turn created too much pressure. Instead of draining all coolant I simply siphoned the coolant out of the expansion tank. I didn't...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Transmission will not downshift to first, only takes off in higher gears Just bought a 97 P38, the previous owner had the ECM and transmission control module replaced before giving up. Someone told him that the BeCM is to blame, has anyone experienced this issue before? The rover can be driven...
  15. Maintenance for Higher Mileage RRS: Differential/Transmission fluid changes

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Maintenance for Higher Mileage RRS: Differential/Transmission fluid changes I thought I would do a bit of preventative maintenance on my RRS considering the "arduous use" it gets as defined by LR day in and day out. This at 72K miles registered on the odometer, probably closer to 75K...
