  1. 2011 RR Sport SC - can't get to passenger side spark plugs

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I replaced my drivers side spark plugs over the weekend - wasn't the easiest but not too terribly difficult. I tried to do the passenger side but the coils are blocked by part of the wiring harness that is wrapped in a plastic clip. I tried to remove the clip, but the rear part of the clip is...
  2. No lights in MOST fiber optic system plugs, stereo issues

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Unfortunately I have had issue after issue with my 2007 RR. Initially: Stereo "dead," land rover locked screen. Installed MOST fiber optic loop device in place of Nokia bluetooth unit along with new amplifier. SOUND! But still land rover screen locked. Worked for a month or so with good sound...
  3. 2006 L322 Jag engine spark plugs

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a 2006 L322 4.4L, and I don't want to pay the mechanic shop $340 to change my plugs. Does anyone have pictures or a video of how to change the plugs? Also does anyone know the gap for the plugs?
  4. Won't start after changing plugs, wires, cap and rotor

    Range Rover Classic
    I decided to swap out the plugs, wires, cap, and rotor on my 95 LWB since I have no idea when they were last changed. After changing them it won't start. Since I know I must have messed something up in the process, I'm trying to figure out the best way to troubleshoot it. 1. I reinstalled the...
  5. 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...
  6. 2004 Range Rover HSE Oil on Spark Plugs

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    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...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    we have a 2017 diesel sport. starting to get cold in the mornings. How does one activate the glow plugs? This is a stupid question probably, but i dont feel like the glow plugs are automatically activating if they are suppose to? I know on my ford f350, i turn the key to on, the glow plug lights...

  9. Oil on spark plugs, Engine Failsafe Program

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I know there are threads regarding the engine failsafe. I have read through them all but I am still puzzled. Backstory Replaced fuel pump in 2016, Radio does not work guessing due to rain water leaking on Bluetooth module in trunk, transmission inactive and air suspension inactive have been...
  10. Replaced spark plugs and crankcase PCV vent valve

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello all, I just wanted to report back on my installation of new plugs and PCV valve this morning. On a level of difficulty, i'd say it's a 4 out of 10. I say that because you will need a good set of extensions and the ability to work in tight spaces for the driver side rear most spark plug...
  11. Checked spark plugs today .40 to .45

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Don't know how they got so open but I was doing a 25000 mile check to see if they were seizing or anything. They came out easily(COLD engine per Atlantic British video). I noticed the large gap and after checking 2 plugs it made sense to put new instead of fixing all old ones. Anyways old...
  12. 2011 HSE Spark Plugs @ 55k miles

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have been having misfire codes registering with the CEL over the past week. I reset the codes once but they came back yesterday. The rig only has 55k miles on it, is this normal to have to replace plugs and possibly coils at this mileage on a 2011? I know the service manual says 7ys or 105k...
  13. Ear Plugs Needed

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Driving home tonight and the radio cut out was replaced by a continuous wail from the warning buzzer. No warning lights or messages on the display so I'm guessing the BECM threw a fit. Had to disconnect the battery to shut it up. I think my DSP Amp has gone pop (my own fault I've been fiddling...
  14. Interior trim "plugs"

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I was wondering if there is a trick to removing the plastic fasteners that hold in various pieces of interior trim such as around the seat bases, etc. I bought a cheapo interior trim tool kit but nothing gets underneath the head without gouging the plastic. Also, if anyone knows a source for...
  15. What is this, and what plugs into it?

    Range Rover Classic
    So, I have the dash apart to fix a broken lower center console and heater box. While taking it apart I discovered that the PO had obviously done some work of his own because there was stuff in places it didn't belong, disconnected wires and other associated headaches. One of the things I found...
  16. New plugs, wires, cap& rotor...new problem.

    Range Rover Classic
    Thing won't start now. Was running ok before the tune up, now it won't fire up at all. I even put the old cap and rotor back on and nothing changed. I know it's a shot in the dark, but does anyone have any ideas?
  17. Spark Plugs

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Guys at the fancy independent euro/land rover service shop I go to for oil changes are pushing me to change the plugs. I'm in a 2008 RRS/HSE with 80k on it and I think they probably do need to be changed. I've watched some videos and read some threads and decided that changing the plugs is a...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All I am running a 2001 P38 4.0 V8 but got an electrical problem. Went to start it yesterday and it will turn over but not trying to fire. My mechanic put his diagnostics on it and no fault codes came up. After a bit more investigation we found there was no spark on the plugs. Does...

    Hi All, Been struggling to find any information about the bottom 3 core / freeze plugs on the BMW 2.5DSE block. One of mine is missing (don´t ask...) Does anyone know the dimensions of them? Land Rover dealerships seem to be pretty stumped in terms of a replacement part ....and I can´t seem...
