    I don't have any reason to think there's anything up with the battery, holds ~12.7 overnight and flies the engine over
    Green ball was there one day, gone the next

    I put mine on charge overnight just in case, no luck. Checked at work, 18 miles drive, no luck. Got home after stopping for petrol, it's magically appeared haha.
    All is good in the world.. apart from exhaust leak :oops:

    Going up a steep, constant gradient, constant throttle in 3rd.. revs dip for 1/2 second or so as though it's changed to 4th, then immediately back to 3rd and we carry on as normal. Should i be worried?

    So long as it isn't slipping/flaring then nah!

    The tranny relies on the TPS to sense throttle position obvs, it could be related to that.

    Or it just got confuzzled for a second!! :)

    Needs the body lifting off ideally.

    I shall check the tps output, cheers. I know it modified values as it wears.. wonder if they get a bit out of whack.. not supposed to reset unless you change gearbox internals

    best place to start, my trans started acting up when my TPS started to fail, I also forgot to plug it in when taking the throttle body off..

    That was interesting. :D

    Haha oops!! I unplugged it yesterday but remembered to plug back in ;)
    There's no lockdown linkage on these, is there? Ie something that might need adjustment?

    Any clue if it measures the power output from the engine? Wonder if it cares if it's out of range...

    Just throttle position and calculated load, for the 'box. ;)
    If it gets too far out of range or fails completely, then you get a gearbox fault on the dash ;)

    This is the issue with Trannies. Sometimes they are just confused ;)

    Need to put an airline up my tailpipe!! Ooer missus!! See if i can find this exhaust leak.
    Can't see any soot stains anywhere. If it was leaking into the valley then would be more muffled

    Nada. Had plans for finishing work and then getting some engine bay / inlet manifold cleaning done.

    Instead spent all the time working on fighting a planning app that has gone in nearby and doing stuff for a promotion opportunity at work, both with deadlines this week.

    hello to all
    what did i do with said range rover today..
    it broke down !:rolleyes:
    yes the worlds most reliable car stopped being reliable:D
    i managed to coast to the side of the road lay by out of the way of the traffic, fuel error system popped up.
    did some minimal checks had no real tools onboard other than the standard wallet,
    ended up being relayed home for investigation tomorrow, left it on charge
    tomorrow will tell, hopefully there will be some usable codes to steer me in the right direction.
    a broken down range rover.. now theres a thing!o_O
    an l322 seen in its natural habitat:D
    maybe its just having a rest and saving the endzone layer:p IMG_20210920_174904830.jpg IMG_20210920_192459976.jpg
