  1. 2008 SC dies off on start up then revs come up

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Our new to us 2008 sc with 450 miles started to act up on start up as follows. Turn key, engine rotates a second or two fires revs up, or not, then bogs and almost dies and revs up again and then stabilizes at 700 instead of the 1000 or so it did when cold on first starts. Seems to be fine...
  2. revs at 50?

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi 3.9 auto unleaded, how many revs should I be doing at a steady 50mph under no real load? Just wondering as I can not determine gear changes so can't tell if I'm in 4th or not. At a comfortable 50mph riding on a flat surface the rev counter is saying 1800 - 2000 rpm - is this about right? The...
  3. 2013 Evoque revs high to 5 won't move, wait then moves

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    Hello, New to the forums. My 2013 Evoque had a rough morning. I was driving on the highway, exited and came to stop. I started to drive and when it went to shift gears it revved high up 5 which it never does. This is in Drive and not Sport. In Sport it will go up to 4 normally. I coasted...
  4. RRS L320 delayed gear changes, only in high revs

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi, First time posting here, so go easy on me if I mess up! :-) My RRS, L320, 2008, V8 Diesel, is experiencing lazy, or slow gear changes up. Currently, it starts and enters into gear one as normal, changes into gear two at what feels like normal revs. It then enters gear 3 at about 3500 rpm...
  5. P38 '99 4.0 gems high revs drinking petrol

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Recently acquired and started over revving (2500rpm) in neutral and park. It's not throwing up any error codes but diagnostics show outside temp as -39.

  8. P38 Acceleration Top Revs

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello, I noticed in Sport mode on a full kick down my car revs up only to about 4.5 when accelerating unlike what I usually see in youtube videos of the 4.6 HSE accelerating https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoS1kY0w3Q0 It should go up to 5.5 rpm any idea why mine doesn't go up that far. Thanks.
  9. Coolant temp gauge not working also surging revs

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi I've recently bought my 2nd Range Rover sport, a 2006 2.7 diesel. Love it as much as my last! Bought the car cheap as it has a couple of issues, first the temp gauge on the dash doesn't work at all, just sits at the bottom and doesn't move. The engine does get up to temp though. And secondly...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    It's just starting to get cold here in Boulder and I've got an intermittent code/CEL that's seems to be popping up. It says cylinder 8 misfire in first 1000 revs. Truck seems to otherwise drive fine -- with the exception that the idle dips more than it should when I turn the AC on. It's a 2006...
  11. High revs when shifting through gears!! Particular 3rd-4th

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    When i start my Range Rover and drive for the first 20 mins or so each morning it shifts really smoothly up through all the gears effortlessly at around 2300 rpm. Then it starts to change up at 3000 rpm or higher after its heated up a while. This seems high to me but the worst part is when on...

  15. Alternator light flickering at low revs

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    When the car is at idle (in park and a warm engine) the alternator / battery light is flickering. When the revs pickup it goes out stays out and doesn't come on again unless it goes back to idle, but not every time. I have tested with different loads and I can't find a pattern. I have tested...
