A RR Sport 2012 limited edition(lux)<br><br>And now, 3 months after..the famous CEL issue have started.<br>May seem a piece of cake to some of you old timers with a long love relationship with your RR<br>but to me, a newly RR wedded dude, it's worrisome. <br>Especially when there are very few mechanics who can fix this where im from.<br><br>After diagnostic, i got a <strong>P0106</strong> error code. (OBD Car doctor device)<br>My mechanic cleaned the Pressure sensor(i believe, thats the little clip like stuff).<br>He sprayed it with some electronic cleaner stuff. Still the CEL is still up. <br>The mechanic says to take it for a hard spin that i would clear off..i did but nothin changed.<br>Plus, when i accelerate hard i can smell something like fume. <br><br>He suggest to change the air filter. <br>Then says to change the 2 Air flow meters.<br>He assures me that it's nothin major, that i can keep driving it.  <br><br>Another Mechanic says its the low octane fuel sold in my country(even though I use boosters)<br>Says to change the Oxygen and Catalyst converter too.<br>Im so worried and confused. <br>Im not a techy person at all, so reading the error code report is daunting and confusing.<br>I don't want anyone to take advantage of the situation.

To start with you don't have an L322, you have a Sport, an L320 so you've posted in the wrong forum. The code is a standard MAF sensor error so a squirt with MAF cleaner should sort it. If it doesn't, it probably needs a new one. Once the code has been read it should be cleared. That will turn it off and if it comes straight back, then you do need a new MAF.

As it's detected an error, it's probably gone into a fail safe fuel map which will be rich so you will smell fumes.

OP, when posting please jsut type your post instead of copy and pasting from whatever you are typing in. You can also leave out the profanity and text typing.

It's obvious your mechanic is a complete moron and jsut throwing your monies at a vague issue. Lack of an experienced mechanic will be your downfall unless you buck up and take care of things yourself. If you are not a do it yourself type and have no access to a mechanic that knows Land Rovers you may as well sell now.

RRToadhall,

Thanks for the typing tips. I will search for a mechanic that knows his onions, and prolly start getting my knowledge up as per DIY.
The mechanic may have proffered solutions that are not 100% accurate, that doesn't make him a "moron".
We are all at different levels of knowledge and may not get some things right sometimes.
Thanks for your advice.

Any mechanic that hand you a list of things to throw money at without actually troubleshooting the issue has no business in service. Especially true when telling you to change two of an item that your rig only has one of. I would run, not walk away from this guy. He obviously has no clue or knowledge about Range ROvers or even some basics.
