    Hello All, Over the course of the last 2 years my ZF transmission has been giving me issues. Initially, I was noticing a harsh 2-1 downshift when coming to a stop. this went from being intermittent to probably 70% of the time. As time progressed, shifts when decelerating and accelerating...
  2. Source for overhauled valve blocks ?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I know i have seen companies that provides overhauled P38 EAS valve blocks. Mine does not function correct, and to rebuild it with just the o-rings, is meaningless, unless i can get new one-way valves installed at same time. New one can be purcased at Island4x4 for about 650gbp, livable if it...

  6. PCV Valve Functionality

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Does the PCV Valve act as a filter keeping oil blow by from going into the intake system? I think on one of my older cars it was just a hose no valve.
  7. Replaced spark plugs and crankcase PCV vent valve

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello all, I just wanted to report back on my installation of new plugs and PCV valve this morning. On a level of difficulty, i'd say it's a 4 out of 10. I say that because you will need a good set of extensions and the ability to work in tight spaces for the driver side rear most spark plug...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Yesterday I removed the valve covers and upper timing cases exposing the valve train andcam sprockets (Yes- this is a slow process as I have several other projectsgoing on!). I wanted to pause and install the cam blocks as I have already locked the crank shaft at TDC. In the several videos I...

  10. Installed Lower temp thermostat, 87 deg C vs 105 deg C

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    In an attempt to bring oil pressure up at idle, I installed a lower temperature thermostat. This is a 2003 Range Rover with the BMW 4.4L, 166k miles. The stock thermostat is 105 deg C, I ordered an 87 deg C. Supposedly, some models/years/climates used 87 deg C stock, and the switch to 105 deg...
  11. Has anyone heard of 2006 4.2 intake valve issue (220,000km)?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi guys, Quick question: I am looking at a rough-ish 2006 SC with 220k on. I know the service history, but the shop is telling me that there is an intake valve issue on the early 2006 SC which causes a slight tap on cold start up (similar to a non-oil filled hydraulic tappet sound, I am led to...

  14. EAS exhaust valve opens several times after engine stop

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All I'd like to confirm that what I hear after the engine/ignition is turned off on my RR (Vogue 4.6 MY2000) is normal. In the first audio file the exhaust valve(?) opens 15 times and in the second audio file the exhaust valve(?) opens 10 times. I am assuming it is the exhaust valve as I...
  15. Getting a 6mm air line from the trunk to the valve block.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    On my new P38 I am using a ARB compressor as one aspect of "bomb-proofing" my EAS. I plan to use one of their larger compressor and it wont fit where the old one is. Not to mention it will be easier to run a external air tap from the trunk to inflate tires. My question is from the spare wheel...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey, Leaking oil on the passenger side of my engine (same side as PCV) and quick inspection looks like it's coming from the valve cover gasket where it meets the timing chain cover. Is this the most likely place the AJV8 leaks oil? If one is leaking, should I change both while I'm at it...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I made a video of the noises: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9ZX6nVdlgI The exhaust solenoid is acting weird I think. The last noise is the strangest. Other Issues related to EAS are. 1. Truck rear will raise when driving. 2. Whole truck will raise to wade height when driving. 3. Truck will...
  20. Governor valve

    Range Rover Classic
    It has been suggested that what our Rover may be experiencing is a governor valve gone bad. Only shifts out of 1st after 15 mins warm up. Filter has been changed and metal debris was present. Looked high and low for an online video walking this "backyard mechanic" thru locating and...
