  1. 2004 vanos/camshaft sensor/solenoid problem

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi all!! I have recently purchased a 2004 Range Rover. I bought it after sitting for around 4 years. It’s in pretty sad shape, but I am no stranger to projects — and especially not afraid of range rovers/bmw’s. When I first purchased, was told it needed a transmission, but it turned out that it...
  2. Has my 4.2L jumped a timing chain?

    Range Rover Classic
    What is the likelihood that my original 4.2L with 189k milesjumped a tooth on the timing chain? I’ve read ALL the history of this engine,which mainly speaks of the dropped cyl liners, leaking head gaskets and camwear, but I can’t recall reading about timing chain jumping. Truck has been purring...

  4. Timing

    Range Rover Classic
    Our 90RRC now has a new distributor (but her timing isn't happy. Installed 6* B (as Rave instructs, vac off etc.) and then wanna strobe time her to 9*/10* B but she dies. A tooth either way doesn't help. Also tried dizzy installs starting at 10* al the way to 18* - She seems to like the 6*B...
  5. Just finished Timing job on my 2012 RRS SC - tips n tricks

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hey guys, I just finished the timing job on my 2012 Range Rover Sport Supercharged. Most of the quotes I got to do the job were in the 6-8K range, which I thought was absolutely nuts! After having done the job, I can see why they charge that much . . . . It was, ahem, fun. Easily the most...
  6. Feeler: Rent out timing tools

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hey guys, just curious if you think there is a market for this? I'm a little over halfway through the timing job on my 2012 RRS SC, so I had to buy all of the tools for the job (from Atlantic British). If there isn't a market for this, then maybe I will just sell them outright. But it seems...
  7. Timing chains etc...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Not a MkIII, but the same Jag 5.0. 2010 LR4 I picked up for a buddy of mine, $4500! It's "noisy" up front, so will just go ahead and do the full set. It had supposedly had them all done in '15 (same owners since '11), but I'm guessing they used the plastic pins still, instead of aluminum. Cost...
  8. 2014 RES HSE - Timing Chain Replacement

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have a 2014 RRS HSE - single owner/purchased new - now has 83k miles. The CEL came on and started flashing and the vehicle died. It would restart but ran very rough and the light continued to flash. We had it towed to a local shop and he’s saying the timing chain needs to be replaced. The...

    So i just put back my motor after head gasket change, set the timing but i think im off a tooth or two, i did set the cylinder 1 a little lower than the tdc(my fault), but i have been reading on some jaguar forums that crank shaft position is cylinder 1 at tdc plus another 45 degrees turn, ps.

  11. 2008 Timing Chain Issue?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have read multiple posts stating the Jag engines in the 2008 models generally don't have timing chain issues. Mine has 199K miles on it and a couple days ago a bank of cylinders stopped firing on while I was on the interstate. I limped it to the nearest dealership about 5 miles away and they...
  12. Timing Guide Question

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello all, I'm in the middle of replacing timing chains and guides on an '04 full size. All the plastic part was entirely gone on the center guide but both side guides were intact. I'm now at the point where I'm installing the new parts in and putting everything back together but I'm not...
  13. 2010 Range Rover Super Charged Timing Chain

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello! I'm taking in a newly acquired '10 RR SC w/ 110K to the dealership to having timing chain issues addressed. I have read that the thermostat and water pump are worth worth replacing when doing the timing chain service. Are there other non timing related parts that are worth replacing while...
  14. Class action lawsuit - Timing chain

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I came across this class action lawsuit against Land Rover regarding the timing on the engines affected by the bad parts, I’m considering about jumping on this train as my car has now bend valves, anyone else has thought about doing such a thing...
  15. What is a 2004 RR worth AFTER the timing chain guides let go

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    It is all in the title. The RR is in very good condition, other than the fact that the timing chain ate the guides for lunch. Im in Maryland if that matters. I have a feeling it is worthless. 160k miles.
  16. timing

    Range Rover Classic
    Owner of 2 RRC & 1 D1. Timing was jumping so installed new chain and sprocket gears. Improved but still jumps about 1/2 inch when timing lit. No codes. Idles 5 minutes and then a knocking appears and knocking volume increases. Vacuum test returns a steady 8 value. Driving round the block surges...
  17. `12 RR SC Timing Chain DIY Help

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I recently bought a 2012 RR SC with 106K miles on it. So I knew the timing chain guides would eventually need replacement. The other day it started ticking pretty bad, and got worse. Happened more sudden than I thought it might, but alas, I'm 95% the timing chains are the issue. I'm fairly...
  18. 2010 RRS - timing tensioner job the easy way?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, I'm looking at a 2010 RRS HSE with 180,000km at a significant discount. it has a few mechanical issues but the body and interior are pretty good. The main issue is a rattle from the engine, believed to be the timing chain rattling. I'm fairly mechanically inclined but having watched some...
  19. 2010 RRS Supercharged Timing Belt Issue

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have had the car for 5 years with minimal problems and it has 96K miles. It has had a slight knock that I have heard at times. I have had it tuned and it is super fast. But when I had the control arms being replaced at a shop that works solely on Land Rovers they said the noise is the...
  20. Atlantic British Timing Guide Replacement Video

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just a heads-up right now - Atlantic British posted on their Facebook page that they would soon post a how-to video for replacing the timing chain guides. They already have a kit so my assumption is that it will be posted here: https://www.roverparts.com/Parts/TCK5030 They specifically...
