    Gearbox/transfer racket

    Evening all, First post here ! Just bought myself a 63 series 2, it’s a bit of a battle bus but I love it all the same. Been fixing it up (had some major smoking issues, turned out to be injectors and timing). Either way I’m pretty much the archetype Haynes manual Warrior, no professional...

    Range rover sport 5l v8 supercharged 2011 Running noise

    Hi everyone, I've recently acquired a running noise on my car that the dealers seem to think is a normal running noise but I disagree and would like some of your opinions.

    Droning noise from rear.

    Just a bit of advice needed. My Freelander has a droning, bearing like noise from the rear. Wasn't too bad when I bought it but getting worse. I have removed the complete propshaft assembly but the noise is still present. Mileage is 174,000 and I have no evidence of the vcu having been changed...

    General Reducing RFI radio noise

    One of the disadvantages of replacing my poorly diesel with a 2.5 petrol engine is the amount of radio noise I am now having to live with. It's the standard civvy set up, although I hope to go electronic ignition soon, which removes point noise, but there will still be sparks from the rotor...

    HELP: Noise Defender Td5 at 2000 rpm

    Dear all! My Defender Td5 runs beautifully on idle. However, when driving (especially over 2000 revs) it starts making a noise. After driving long distance this noise starts and will continue for a while but stops again. When it makes noise, we lose some power. We were advised to change...

    Steering column noise

    Hi, I have a P38 from 1999 and since a few weeks now the car makes a noise when I steer but only when the car is still cold, so the noise disappears after a few minutes when the car gets warmer. The steering fluid is topped up, so any idea what could cause this? :confused: Thanks!

    A rather annoying but inconsequent issue that sooner or later comes up in Discos series 2 (either V8 or S5): on moving the starter switch to position "II" a vibrating sort of whirling noise comes from aside the steering column. The trouble lies with the in-car temperature sensor (ICTS) mounted...
