    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...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    A friend told me about this product, he has a Rav 4 with similar cam advance gear rattle. The system is basically an accumulator tank that fills up with pressurized oil when the engine is running. When the engine is shut off, pressurized oil is trapped in the tank by a check valve. When the...

  13. M62TU Timing chains, guides, Vanos, etc

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Looks like the wife's 2003 Rover will be getting timing chains, guides and tensioners done, as well as the Vanos seals from Beisin. We looked at trading it against a really clean '08 Supercharged, but the numbers weren't making sense to me. So if we're keeping it, I'll get rid of the noise it...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Well, working on VANOS today, the last bolt that can't come out broke another two 1200 ft lb HD t-55 keys :shock: Then proceeds to spin the actual sprocket without the camshaft turning which skipped the teeth.. Dad comes over and says he'll take care of it, decides to use vice grips to hold the...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Currently doing my VANOS gaskets, after 15 minutes I hit my first road block being the electrical box. Videos say "oh ha, there are clips", and others just show the box being tugged off.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi Guys, My VANOS never made the diesel like chatter until recently after I replaced the valve cover gaskets, upper timing cover gaskets, vanos solenoid gaskets, and timing chain tensioner. When the covers were off I noticed quite a bit of sludge. However, the guides were in tact. They were...

  20. Front upper control arm bushings...Then VANOS and guides!

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Seen some bad inner tire wear on the wife's '03 so went investigating. Seems that the "upper" frnt bushings have a LOT of play in them, in all directions! New "upper" arms, without ball joints, are @$170 for the pair New Moog bushings for the above, $44 for the pair. Big difference, considering...
