    Range Rover Mark II / P38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    ABS TC and BRAKE lights on upon first tapping the brake, off otherwise. I have googled a bit about this, but it seems different than the accumulator issue to me. There is no grinding or any noise at all really that would make me think the car is having an issue. The pedal goes a little far...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, I've searched these threads and applied various solutions over the last year but still to no avail. My 5 speed 1996 DSE (BMW M51) has this incessant ticking or tapping noise. A diesel type sound but louder than it's supposed to be. I've had plenty of diesels in the past. Briefly, the...

    My rover just started a loud tappin once warmed up. I thought it might be a lifter. I changed the whole set of lifters and the push rods no luck just as loud! What's next? Timing chain maybe?
  10. Tapping sounds like valve train. What can I get away with?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi I rebuilt my engine approx 20 months ago. I renewed the cam, lifters, push rods, valve springs as well as all the usual bearings and piston rings. Since then I've done approx 8000 miles. Over the last 3-4 months I've started getting a rattle/tapping at idle once the engine is warmed up...
