    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...

    About five days ago I noticed a hesitation while cruising at +/-60mph in my 2011 HSE; It happened 3 times within 20-30 seconds, but then ran fine. I assumed that it may have been something with the gas, as I had just filled it up that morning. Yesterday I felt the same sensation at about 40mph...

    I have a 1988 Range Rover classic. Runs well except that at engine temps below 170ish the car emits a black smoke. At operating temp it doesn't smoke at all. Any ideas or thoughts?

    I know this sounds crazy, and I've been working on it by myself for a few days now, but I now must turn to those that will know more than I do. I just bought a 2000 Vitesse and everything was going great for about a month, then I noticed the battery was slowly dying. Now when I crank it up and...
