    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Took my RRS car to to an Independent LR dealership for the 90K service, which isn't much, just an oil change, cabin filter (something I can actually do myself lol) and just some random checks (like wipers, etc). The dealer is Eurofix...has a ton of reviews. The guy seemed knowledgeable and...

    Hello, I have a Range Rover 3.0 TD6 2005, with the BMW engine, that it has some preheater for the oil or water, I don´t know, but the problem is that every time that I open one door or unlock the car, although the engine is not started, this device starts to make a noise like a fan. This comes...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494

    Range Rover Sport / L320

  10. Oil pan replacement?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I need to replace my oil pan due to the drain plug threads being stripped out, already had a mechanic tap it out and go up the next size but its still leaking. I was told it's a job consisting of removing the whole engine. Has anyone just replaced the oil pan from underneath?
  11. What's that sensor on the side of my oil pan?

    Range Rover Classic
    I was looking underneath my '93 LWB with the stock 4.2, and saw a wire hanging free which looked like it was supposed to be attached to a nearby sensor on the driver's side of the oil pan. No unusual dash lights on, is this an oil level or oil temp sensor??

    Greetings -- I've had my P38 roughly five (5) weeks and performed my first oil change on it over the weekend. I used a Mann filter (W 930/20, fitment verified on the Mann website), as I have used them for all of my cars and trucks for a decade-ish and have had great success. After taking the...

    2004 Range Rover HSE Changed the spark plugs & Coils today; passenger side had only one oily plug but driver side were all covered in oil. I guess my next move is to replace valve cover gasket. Do you think it's ok to drive until I replace the valve cover gasket? Any advice on replacing...
  16. D.I.Y Oil Change on 4.4 V8 Diesel?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I am considering doing oil service every 12,500 k's, as I am concerned about oil dilution due to DPF cycles. I haven't been able to find any stuff on Google re process. I was hoping to suck the oil out rather than drop the oil. Has anyone done this on the V8 diesel?

The truck runs great otherwise. I am going to change them this weekend but my question is after driving it back to my house, about...
  18. Oil Leak Finding Game

    Range Rover Classic
    Ok, I can’t seem to find an oil leak that’s collecting on the drivers side O2 sensor. It’s not a lot, but enough to smoke once it’s burned off. Where would you guess the leak it coming from? Head or Valve cover?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have tried about 20 times to get the oil service light to reset using the documented hold open, door open, ignition on, brake/gas pedal 30 seconds routine. It never works. I had the dealer verify that I have the field service action "N118 Service Warning Message Not Displayed Service Reset...
