    Another 4HP22 question

    Every time you thing you've seen it all, life surprises you. Just drove my friend's 95 LWB. It has a few quirks, and this is one of them: - while coasting in Drive, at speeds about 30 mph, no throttle input, it would downshift (engine speed would go from 1200 to 2000 rpm @ 30 mph), then upshift...

    What If?

    Back in April of 2013, a few miles from Hanksville but already on dirt, I heard a slight tapping from my D1's engine. Everyone I asked about it laughed me off, saying there just wasn't anything that is called "tapping" in Land Rover world. Five hours later, in Fishlake Nat'l Forest, the tapping...

    Is there such a thing as a non-leaking steering box?

    It is a rhetorical question - I know the boxes are nice and dry in my jeep (a "76-series" Saginaw box) and one of the 95 RRCs. The others (LR4 excluded) leak. Not a whole lot, but enough to spot the brand new garage apron. I know that Meridian rebuilds are a dead end - even when they don't...

    I read about this extensively on Russian LR forums - I guess despite JLR's assurances that this went away with 2.7 TDV6, it didn't: NHTSA ID: 10106102 TSB ID: SSM 72578 Issue: crankshaft/crankshaft bearing failure ? 3.0 tdv6 diesel engine. engine makes a loud ?rumbling/knocking? sound when...

    How on earth do you...

    ... remove the ABS brain box on a D1? Does the bottom lip of the dashboard (where the glovebox attaches) come off? Edit: Never mind, page 70-22 of workshop manual. I know what it says, but I still can't see how it will come out. Edit: It does, like a charm. The ABS light is off, I guess until...

    Fuel pump or harness?

    2010 LR4 - died today in the middle of nowhere. Spit out codes P0232 and P025C - both related to fuel pump, and both kind of hint of a short in the fuel pump circuit. The fuel pump 25A fuse is blown; replaced, blown again within a second of ignition-ON. The engine almost starts and dies...

    KvT LWB Low-profile Rack

    Own a piece of Discoweb history: most likely, the very last KvT LWB rack. If you've just crawled from under some moldy rock and have no clue WTF it is, it is a full-length low profile roof rack designed and built specifically for long-wheelbase Range Rover Classics by Kyle Van Tassel, one of...

    Riddle me this...

    Flashing CEL with P1313 code in the mornings on cold (rather, cool - ~55F) engine. No other codes. Engine starts, idles, and runs as smoothly as it can ever be. Gas mileage is normal, no particular smell to exhaust. I know what the code means, but cannot possibly come up with a reasonable...
