  1. Overheated 😞

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    This forum has been a godsend during my 6 years of daily driving my P38, which I began restoring since day 1. Bought it with 86k miles from the second owner, currently at 126k. Unfortunately, I had my first mechanical problem in 6 years and, as it turns out, quite a catastrophic one. I’d...

    I recently took the rover in for low coolant message. They said water pump was bad. They replaced the pump, 2 hoses, and 2 belts.

  4. 98 RR Overheated and engine sputtered and died

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Everything has been great with the 98 RR for at almost 2 years, but today it died twice. We left about 10am to go to town in 42 degree weather. We also noticed the heater didn't work very well. We get about 5 miles from the house and the RR sputtered and began to die. As I looked down at the...

  6. Overheated Compressor Field Recovery

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I thought you guys would get a kick out of this one: I was driving from Calgary to Fernie this weekend, and the #6 line from the valve block to the tank decided to leak hard. So I believe the compressor overheated and hard faulted me with 70km to go. This was the result: #stancenation After...

  8. Overheated heads don't fix themselves, do they?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    No, I don't think so either. But I'm not sure how to explain what I've observed: Last night, I was driving my 2000 RR SE on the interstate at 65mph when the heat started blowing cold, the temperature gauge pegged hot and I pulled off to the shoulder and shut the engine off. Maybe 15 seconds...
  9. So, the engine overheated. How to determine if it's more than just a headgasket job

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, the engine overheated. How to determine if it's more than just a headgasket job So, I let someone borrow my P38 the other day. Anyhow, long story short, the P38 overheated because the expansion cap was not tightened down properly, and all the coolant was pretty much pushed out as engine...

    Last night the fiance and I were on our way to the gym when I was driving and noticed the engine seemed as if it was overworking - best described as the engine breathing harder. As we pulled on to the freeway we were hit with the "Reduced Engine Performance" error, followed by a low coolant...

  13. Overheated- Opinions please...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, the truck in question is a 95 RR 4.0 (P38)- I believe I've had the trinary switch issue for a couple years, and after knocking out a couple issues this spring I was ready to look at that one. Long story short, even when it got warm, turning off the A/C would put the temp gauge back to 12...
