What did you do with your Range Rover today

Been a few weeks now since i had the first key/entry issue and since i disconnected the battery...
Whatever has changed in now getting consistently 4-5 more mpg. Much closer to what i think it should be!

Go figure
Also realised the rear heater controls work properly too! Not checked to see if the under seat/footwell vents work
 
Could it be love at long last:vb-valentine2:
Could kermy have found his piggy??? 🤔

Drove it to Barcelona! (Technically, that’s what I did in my Range Rover yesterday but I had to have a little lie down after we made it all the way…)

It was a bit hesitant to downshift when I put my foot down which is a worry. Hope we make it all the way back! But I spent £2300 on it* before we left. So if it needs a new gearbox I’m selling it and getting a 1.0 Toyota Aygo!

*some numpty had welded the handbrake shoes to the backing plate. That sounded a fun job for the specialists/my bank balance.

Also, she was basically an EV on this trip?!

Was a bit quite after period of active skip and city trips (yes, it made it back from the skip). It took 3 different garages to get an MoT, due the incompetence of the first garage. Booked space to work on fixing the leaking diff.

My partner took it for a 100 mile trip yesterday and towards the end power steering started to play up by working intermittently. It is happening on and off. No leaks, Gaptool picked up no errors. It is ok for the first minutes after starting and then at some points later struggles. I may be wrong, but seems to be ok if accelerating. I suspect pump, but is there a way to troubleshoot to find the cause?

Try changing the fluid, very few people do. Take small sample of the oil onto white paper and examine its content for crap. Siphon and refill until it becomes clear while turning the wheels lock to lock after every refill. 👍
 
Drove to Newquay and back - ~600 mile round trip, to pick up this poor lad, he had to be taken away from his home of three years, kept in Police kennels for a couple of weeks, then 'rescue' kennels for a month, then rehomed - didn't work out, probably through no fault of his, after eleven days.
We were asked to see if he'd be suitable and most importantly, if he'd get on with our existing rehome (she's still grumpy with him, but coming around to the idea that he'll be staying! - probably the five hour drive down didn't help).

Anyway, for the M42, M5, A30, there is (IMO) no better car, adaptive cruise, front & rear climate - and as we found out on the way back, after being told he had Sardines for his brekky every day - an opening pan roof, are essential to stress-free driving, comfort and wellbeing of all concerned!

Oh, I forgot to mention, if we couldn't take him, he'd have to be euthanised - so no pressure then!
There is a long 'back-story' but I can't really say much more in public, other than he'd still be at his home if it wasn't for interfering busybodies exerting their five minutes of power over a situation they only saw one small part of. grrrrrrr......

Well done, looks a nice dog. Ours is a dog we rescued from ill treatment, he's turned out to be e great addition to our family, hope you have the same result.
 
Today, I as mostly been changing the hedgehog, cursing and swearing a lot, and the top intercooler hoses.

Before I go to bed tonight, I needs to put the battery charger on, bit of a drain and thought it was down to the HVAC.

Yesterday I cleaned all the fluff out of the HVAC fan in the dash.
