  1. Drive train noise

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Recently noticed a metalic chirruping noise from front left. It only sounds a low speeds when idling or braking. It is more or less associated with speed but not completely. Checked propshaft and front UJ has a bit of sideways play. I never noticed my old landy chirruping when UJs have been...
  2. Thudding drive train noise

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    This one has me foxed. My 2006 Supercharged with 100k miles has a very unusual thudding/thumping noise from under the car which seems to be towards the the rear - difficult to pin point. I have attached my electronic stethoscope probes to the rear diff, transfer box, auto box and front diff and...
  3. Slowly degrading Transfer Case or other drive train "drag"?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Slowly degrading Transfer Case or other drive train "drag"? I'm getting a little "drag" when driving and can't find the source. All fluids, oil, diff, transfer case, transmission are fresh and filled properly. No leaking boots on half shafts or CV joints...nothing I can point to in the mid...
  4. Bad vibration on drive train over 4000rpm

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    When i boot the old girl into kickdown so she's pulling over 4000rpm, I'm getting serious vibration somewhere. I'm thinking propshaft, driveshafts or something similar. If I just sit and rev her over 4000rpm, no vibration. I'm not sure that this hasn't occurred after greasing her nipples...
  5. 06 Range Rover 4.4 hse Engine ticking from valve train area.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have had a fast ticking sound coming from the manifold area and front of engine. It has gotten worse after a 1000 mile trip I just took. I want to check oil pressure as well as tensioners and lifters. I don't want to go to the dealer because they have cost me a fortune no solving past issues...

    Hi All, a bit new to this so please bare with me if I don't reply sharp. Just bought myself a nice 03 L322 4.4 v8 petrol, had a rd5 disco and a 90 before that but fancy stepping it up a little. It drives great, usual little niggles inside, although when setting off from stationary there is a...
  7. 89 RRC drive train question

    Range Rover Classic
    I have owned Disco's for 15 years but am looking to buy a 89 Range Rover. I have done everything on my Disco's including installing an engine and transfer case so I am fairly mechanical. I know the 89 was the first year with the BorgWarner transfer case. Here is my question... The guy is selling...
  8. Drive Train Issue - Right Wheel Is Backwards

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    It has been a while, my P38 was waiting with a dead battery for 3 months (because I got a company car - free fuel compared to a 4.6!!!) and now I decided to bring her back to life. The only problem is she is steering to right, no matter what I did I could not solve the issue (bought new tires...
  9. 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...

    Put my head back, close my eyes, wait.... This sight has become a train wreck. I terribly miss the old days of quick, on the spot postings. GYAWD, what a mess. Sold out.
