  1. Overheating

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Val overheated on Monday, 130 miles from home. Took the RAC nine hours to get me home, she is off to be checked over and hopefully she will be back on the road soon. Was quoted £8500 by one company! Strangely won't be using them.

    I’ve got a stubborn overheating issue. It’s more prevalent at idle but still runs a bit warm when driving as well. I have a new radiator in the vehicle and the viscous fan seems to be strong.

    Range Rover Classic
    My resurrection of my 1984 'barn find' original import Range Rover is progressing well. Driving around to test and fix little issues as they come up.

    Having trouble diagnosing an issue with my '96 HSE. It's been getting warmer than it should be lately. Head gaskets were replaced a couple years ago due to the left rear weeping coolant down the side of the block. It was slow, requiring a top off every month or so. For the last two years it's...

  13. Weird near overheating '08 SC

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So, my Rover has this lovely new thing where it acts like it's going to overheat when I begin driving. Loud fan/engine whir, drop in acceleration and over all engine output, and the A/C weakens a good bit. Then, after about 15 to 45 seconds of that it drives and acts normal the rest of the way...

    I know overheating has taken up lots of threads, but I thought I'd ask the forum for advise on my specific problem.
