  1. Range Rover Classic
    Hi Everyone! I recently purchased my first Range Rover - an Alpine White 94 3.9 SWB. It's not perfect but it drives well (when it's running :roll:) and has an immaculate interior. It's definitely a worthy long-term project that I look forward to wrenching on. With my limited time and...

    Hi all, Latest A/C gremlin is a potentially blocked Expansion (TX) Valve according to my local auto electrician. A/C works great for 5-15 mins then compressor starts making a real rattle / squeal. Does anyone know where this is located....I'm guessing under the dash but I hope someone here...

    As a long time lurker in the world of Range Rover Classics, this one YouTuber has allowed me to live vicariously through his restoration until I find the one I want to work on. He's an Irish guy named George and his channel is called "Soup Classic Motoring". He also works on other classics...

    When we first took delivery, I drove this vehicle about 25 miles to home with no issues. When we started it about two hours later the alt belt made a horrid squeal as it was now loose. After about a block it got quiet however within a few miles the belt broke. I replaced the belt with an...

    Hello everybody, I am currently looking for a new automatic zf 4HP22 gearbox for my 3.9L 1989 Range Rover Classic as the old one has broken down. I have now come upon a 4HP22 gearbox that was taken from a 3.9L 1995 Discovery 1. Are these directly interchangeable? Thank you in advance!

    Hi All, I recently completed the overhaul of my AC system and thought it might be good to share my research with ya’ll. So to recap, I have a 1983 4 door RRC with a 3.5 Carb engine (now running Sniper EFI throttlebody) which is ‘rescued’ from a junk yard in Houston. The car is an original...

    Spotted this RRC in Houston on the I10 in heavy commuter traffic yesterday. Driven by a well dressed older gentleman. Being a Houston RRC owner myself this is the first time I spotted one in Houston (or south coast) in the wild like that. I don't think they are very popular on this side of...

    Hi all. So I'm a little baffled by the windshiled washer. I ordered one from Rimmer bro's and it has different electrical connector from my original. What I've understood, this is "early" -type connector. However Rimmer insist that it's correct. I've found from Bearmach similar pump as my old...

    Hi all, The steering on my '91 RRC has had a ton of play in the steering wheel, not really picking up much until about 10° of tilt. It's not surprising given that the truck is 28 years old, but it's been problematic with freeway driving. Over the weekend I had an assistant turn the wheel while...

    I added an aftermarket stereo and am getting no sound. The receiver gets power and I can tell it receives music via Bluetooth. But no sound comes through the speakers. I’m confident I wired the speakers correctly. I did not connect the “powered antenna” wires to anything. Likewise, there were...

    Hi. So today was a bit chilly (-29C in the morning) and the Rangie overheated. Apparently the windchill was a bit much for the coolant (green and I assume 50:50 mix so -36C rated) and it froze. No idea when it has been changed. So car cooled and radiator melted during the day while it was...

    I am trying to fully diagnose an issue I'm having on my RRC. I will try to also post a video of what I'm seeing so it might make more sense. On cold startup, I have noticed there is a distinct bubbling of some moisture coming from cylinder #4 out of the space between the cylinder head and the...

    Hello, new member so go easy on me... I have a 1992 Vogue SE and (perhaps unsurprisingly) the driver's memory seat does not move. From reading the various posts in the forum, I'm pretty sure it's the ECU that's shot (mirrors also don't operate). The seat is in the perfect position for me so...

    Hi. New member so please bear with me :). I recently aquired RRC for restoration project and and it's got faulty fuel level sensor. The level connector that should give ohm reading shows no conductivity between the sensor body and the connector. I've tried googling the correct sensor a bit...

    Hi all, My 1990 RRC had been experiencing a rich running condition so used the RAVE to evaluate codes that popped up on the display. Initially, I had a code 17 and when I checked the throttle position sensor the idle position voltage was reading low. I adjusted the TPS in it's "ears" and got...

    Chasing down a spark/no fuel issue on a 1993 RRC LWB with the 4.2l. No power to the fuel pump at this point. Starting to work my way through the diagnostics for the fuel injection system and want to ensure I'm following what the test procedure is telling me to do. If you look at test procedure...

    87 RRC was driving along nicely and then stopped. Won't start anymore. Fuel pump moves fuel when you try to start it. ( removed the hose after the filter fuel flowing fine). Changed the wires, rotor and cap the day before. It was jerking a bit as I was going along before it quit. Any ideas...

    Can anyone help me with where I can find some replacement rubber boots that sit on top of the decking panel. Did rover use these on any other model of car? Mine have perished.

    Driving along after say 30min and brake peddle went to floor, was able to pump it up after 5 to 8 pumps, to to pull to left. No leaks and full of fluid. Changed master cylinder (original) and felt fine. Went for drive 30min (longest drive since rr master cyl) and peddle went to floor, was able...

    Not are what to do about this. I was driving back from thanksgiving, about 3.5 hours on the Freeway and almost home when the transmission acted like it slipped. I was at a stop sign and the transmission seemed to hesitate shifting down a gear then shifted down what felt like 2 gears then...
