  1. 5.0 poor mileage and idle hunt/fluctuation

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    For a long time now, I have not been able to figure out this issue. I used to get pretty decent mileage, averaging about 16MGP. Now I get 10-11, and something is clearly wrong, but no real codes. I have a bad cat, constant P0420, which is probably due to a bad tune on that bank, related...
  2. Adaptives reset leads to poor starting

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Last weekend I changed the entire exhaust system on my Gems 4.6 – I’ve been having long running over fuelling/lack of power problems, so I changed the exhaust just in case the nasty old lashed up system was impeding air flow, and choking the car. At the same time, the Lambdas have been swopped...
  3. poor ride on broken pavement?

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    Many car reviewers commented on poor ride when the roads get bumpy or uneven. What are you owners' impressions?
  4. Poor old trashed P38 at the junkyard.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    :crybaby2: Makes me sad that some people treat their trucks like such garbage. 1995 4.0 SE. This clearly lived a long and hard life... 170k on oil sticker and its inspection tag was nearly 3 years old. Just thought i'd share.

    Wife has recently started experiencing poor quality sound on her cell phone when using the BT connection in her Range Rover. There is a lot of static/crackling on her end. Upgraded to a new phone and still persists. Dealer can't figure it out unless we want to pay to tear the whole thing out...
  6. Very poor radio reception

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello, I have a 06 L233 I love this truck, seems lately she keeping me on my toes with all the work I’ve been doing to her. One of the latest things I’ve noticed is the radio reception is pretty bad. I’m kind of over using the auxiliary jack through my phone ( the volume level isn’t loud enough)...
  7. Poor lighting from headlights

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    The high beams on my 99 4.6 turned night into day! The lights on my 04 L322 border on not safe. I live in rural WI and in the morning at 5:30 the roads are very dark. I bought some fancy bulbs at the local autocrat and they are not much better. I spent some time adjusting the height of the...
  8. A/C issues and Poor Cooling 2006 RR SC

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    The A/C has always been great until several weeks ago when it stopped blowing cold air and would cycle between sort of cool and not so cool. We popped into the shop for a leak check and recharge. The shop said it was fully charged but the high side was low and the low side high. They suspected...
  9. Poor communication from Nanocom to ECU's.

    Diagnostic Equipment
    As some of you might recall, I was having some issues communicating between my Nanocom and the HEVAC system. Well, today, the car battery gave up. I have replaced the battery, and verified the alternator is good, and verified all voltages at various remote points are good. And, the good newds...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello Guys, I took delivery of my 2016 RRS Supercharged Dynamic only a few days ago, and have driven it only 92 miles and used up a half a tank (dealer delivered the truck with a full tank), averaging 7.2 mpg (last shown on the display).

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    Although I am very happy with the car, I am very disappointed with the media and navigation system. Media system : not graphical, album covers not shown, radiostation icons not shown, only text. Navigation system (Navteq Denso 1.2) : - very slow reaction - no possibility to change...
  13. 2004 HSE Poor handling in snow/ice

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have 255/50/20's Goodyear RS-A all season 3/4+ tread depth. This vehicle is almost scary to drive in snowy conditions. Its quite shocking because my rear wheel drive e320 and Landcruiser with 1/2 the tire tread out way perform it in winter driving conditions. Previously I have owned a P38...

  17. Does Aintree Green truly have poor resale value?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi all, Wondering if Aintree Green color truly has poor resale value or its a myth? I usually never sell my cars to private parties, just trade them in. I found a 2016 RSS diesel with all the options I want, but it is the green color. I like that color as it is different and I think I had the...

  19. 04 HSE runs poor below 1/2 tank of gas

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My 2004 Range Rover runs great until it gets below half a tank. Once it gets below the half tank mark it starts to act like your running out of gas. I do have a service engine light on and it's giving me 4 codes p1173, p1170, p0463, and p0705. None of these codes give me a possible cause. Also...
  20. 2003 Range Rover HSE power loss, popping, poor starting

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello all. Today i was driving my truck and it seemed to lose all power! I drove it back home very slowly it was popping and bogging out pretty much the whole way home. The CEL did come on and it read too lean in both banks. I have already tried changing the maf sensor and i noticed that when it...
