    LR3 V6 harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley?

    On my 06 LR3 the crankshaft pulley delaminated. Rubber part came out. No worries since it did it in the driveway while warming up. Years ago I changed one on my Subaru wagon with the breaker bar and crank of the starter trick. Wonder if its the same easy way. Hopefully its not the same as...

    LR3 grind/groan start?

    I've got a 06 LR3 V6 (110k) for the past 4 years. Been extremely reliable and a great family hauler. It used to be maybe 2 times a year I get what sounds like a grind when starting/cranking the rig over. It always fires up but the sound always got to me. Now its happening more frequently...

    Gap tool tight tolerance alignment

    Was wondering on this for future alignments on my LR3. Should my settings be at entry level, normal, or offroad height? Also should I make adjustments prior(on the way or parking lot) ? Or while on the alignment machine? Thanks

    LR3 gap tool car configuration update?

    Was going through the gap tool menu and notice car configuration to be done. New gap tool got it a month ago. Should I just download it? Anything I need to do afterwards? Just checking to see if there would be any benefit to it.

    lr3 gap tool suspension value?

    Was wondering if someone knows the number I can put in for a minor lift. Didn't want to do the whole trial and error thing. Is there a chart? I recently came across 255 70r 18 and they do rub. Slightly over speed bump as such. Think it measure about 32". Thanks 06 LR3

    LR3 transmission update

    I was at Rover dealer picking up a oil filter when I ask about this. He said they will do it cause it may damage my tranny. I told him that I read on forums that with a fluid, filter change and an update should help with the typical back lash. He said its to old to have an update done. He...

    Gear tooth missing.

    So I've been getting this weird sound on deceleration. Transfercase was rebuilt last year. So after going through all the motions of diagnosing everything else I decided to check the fluid. Metal flakes and chips. After screaming to the holy heavens and rover gods for pay backs (former hard...

    Been on the mud site here and there. Kinda of hard to get an answer from them guys in a reasonable time. On a 1990 fj62 with 116k on it I hear a whirling sound upon decel. It goes away if I give it gas or put it into neutral. When I put the truck in neutral when slowing down to a stop. No...
