I have a 2003 Range Rover that has vibration and hesitation at low speeds and under load. I am looking for help resolving this. I just drove from Oregon to Media, PA to help my mom with her cancer diagnosis. Does anyone have a suggestion on a mechanic in the general Philadelphia area that could help me? I also could drive to southern New Jersey or Northern Delaware area if need be. I have never had good luck with dealers and would rather not deal with them unless I have no other choice or somebody makes a compelling argument.

I also am interested any thoughts or advice on what might be causing this problem

I very much appreciate your help!

Thanks

Jesse

Hesitation and Vibration coming from the engine is usually related to a failing coil-pack, it can also be if oil has got into the spark plug hole and is interfering with the coil-to-plug connection. The cause can be a leaking PCV hose or a leaking valve cover gasket, both of which are likely on a 2003 MY Range Rover. When this happened to me, I occasionally got a flickering "Check Engine Light" but not always!

A dealer will charge you $150 just to diagnose, personally I would take it to a BMW specialist if you're uncomfortable looking at it yourself as the M62 engine has been used in BMW's for 10+ years.

Every thing that Dan Said...

If you pull the engine cover (very simple) you can look and feel the hoses (at the back of the engine), if they are mushy soft, chance is there is a hole, that is leaking air, as for the coil pac's (this could be something as simple as one that was not replaced correctly and could be lose and just needs reconnecting) but like stated, if there is oil, a gasket needs replacing to fix the problem.

Good luck.

Mark.
