just braught my first rangerover at bargain price [3.5 e reg 1987 with lpg conversion ]but got a few questions to find out if these are usual
1 when the driving lights are on the windscreen wipers come on and the quicker i go the faster they wrk and when i stop they stop even if it isnt raining ?
2 when pulling off from 0mph and excelarating should i be in 1st,2nd,3rd, or drive [auto] as the car was a trade in the guy selling it didnt have a clue about it ?
any one know what the normal mpg on petrol and on lpg it should run at
many thanks and loving it already

hello, you always leave it in drive. the rest are there if you have to downshift for coming down a steep hill or offroading.

Your vipers should not be coming on. definately a short somewhere. sounds like you should have a look at the wiring.

if he put in an aftermarket radio that would be the first thing I check. have a look at your fuse box as well, see if there are wires that shouldnt be there.

no "clutch" liek in a standard, it's all in the tranny, needs a rebuid. first try changing the tranny fluid, I took the filter off and cleaned it once and saved a tranny. flush the torque converter too by removing the tranny cooler line and running it briefly and topping it off AFTER the filter change / cleaning.

A very basic question, but one that I feel I should ask - have you driven an auto before? I'm going to guess 'not', because of your question ref gearlever position. If I'm correct, then I wonder if the 'clutch slip' is actually the normal way that an auto box works - the revs rise quickly, then the car catches up. If you've only ever driven a manual, this might seem like clutch slip.

no this is my first as i wanted a bit more comfort than the landy 110 which is like driving a tank and not kidy friendly
but this one seems verry slow on hills with high revs but could be normal but dont know any one who owns 1 similar to try .
