    I have an 85 2 door that has been getting a major overhaul since importing from Spain. A reconditioned steering unit was installed but it doesn't assist at low (idle) rpm. I have read of problems with cars that have an ECU but I believe this car does not have one. Are there any tricks like...

    So, this is new, my brakes (all 4 but the front is worse than the back) will start to rub/squeak after 30 mins on the highway, and heat up to the point where they are grabbing/smoking after 60 mins. If I pull over and let them cool, all goes back to normal and then I repeat the cycle. The...

    1995 classic cranks and runs great when cold, but after running for about 30min and letting it sit for about 20 minutes it has a rough idle for about 10-15secs. after that it clears up and runs great again. I have replaced the fuel pump, filter, plug wires ,plugs and TPS sensor. I checked fuel...

    Can any one tell me what the numerous brass fittings are on the AC line that connects from the accumulator/drier to the evaporator under the dash, what is the function of this. These fittings/parts are now obsolete. I wonder if I can do away with them and just make a new AC line that omits them...

    Hi All, Long time lurker and infrequent poster. I have an 89 rrc I've been working on getting running. The exhaust on it has plugged cats and all the joints are welded together. I would like to ditch the whole thing and bolt in a new factory version. The exhaust set-up looks very similar to...

    Howdy - wanted to post this issue and see if any of you fine people can comment or suggest what's going on. Once in a while, I'll insert the key into the ignition and it is just absolutely locked up - no movement at all. Each time this has happened in the past, I've monkeyed with it and...

    Hi guys, Trying to replace my AC compressor. I've searched multiple forums and sites looking for the right one, but what came out of my truck doesn't look anything like what I am seeing anywhere else. Below are photos of my old AC Compressor, and I've got one next to what I ordered that was...

    I'm working on my old classic. It's been sitting for about 6 mouths. I had to charge the battery as I have had it disconnected. When I started it I have the following lights on. Both blinkers, trailer, check engine, ABS, BRAKE, Radiator fluid low, OVERTEMP, and seatbelt. Checked Battery while...

    I think I have tracked my issues down to a bad TPS. Having difficulties finding a replacement. Anyone know of a source for either new or a known good used one? Thanks in advance!

    Hi all, wondering what ways I can get a key fitted to my upper tailgate latch/handle. Truck came with latch but only key I have for it does not fit it. TIA

    Part 1: I had been daily driving a 1979 International Scout for the past couple years, and as much fun as the truck has been, the rust was getting out of control and my girlfriend did not enjoy the minimum three hour drive to get out of the city to camp. The truck lacked reclining seats...

    I bought my 91 RRC then flew from Portland, OR -----> San Diego with the plan to drive back on CA Hwy 395 through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. 99% of the people I told this to thought I was a little nuts. I was a first time Range Rover owner, I was buying an RRC I'd only seen in pictures and a...

    Hey everyone, after years of lurking and months of looking I finally pulled the trigger on my first Rover. She's a 2 owner '91 Trocadero Red RRC with just under 150K and records since new. I've had it for about 4 months now and have racked up about 5000 miles, worked out some not so serious bugs...

    Hi need advice. When I have test light on fuse #18 (fuel pump fuse) when I turn ignition on, light glows for a second then goes out, then when I try to start it there is no light. When there is a light at starting it starts easy. The rave says fuel pump circuit separate from ECM and there should...

    Yo, i'm new to the site, so if there is a thread on this already, please redirect me... I've just replaced the second diff that has broken on my '90 RRC. The first was the front, where a chunk came out of one of the gears. The latest was the rear, where the pin holding the diff gears broke...
