Question about Land Rover Range Rover

1 Answer

Hi, i have a MK3 Range rover with the GM5L40E gearbox. Over the last couple of days i have started to notice it is hunting for gears and juddering when cruising at a constant speed or going up a gradient. Is this terminal for the box? if so what can i expect a massive bill?

First have the oil and gearbox filter replaced before you let someone tell you to repair or replace it.

What is causing a couple of second judder when accelerating away after changing from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th gear ?


it may be from failing engine mounts allowing the engine to misalign the drive shaft under acceleration and allowing problems in the cv joints or "U" joint

Engine hunting


what a lovely car -if it was a manual ,i have a diesel manual one and its a flier ,as for this iam not sure so try reading the codes but if this is a gearbox related fault car then its the scrapyard as this car has no value in the UK but if stuck for spares look here in spain as no end of these cars running around and well appreciated here they are as well .This hunting when cold is the puzzle as it could be gearbox related whereby the gearbox computer is operating the engine RPM idle to stop creep but iam just not sure as i never see any autos of rover just manuals

Mercedes 1.7 cdi judders at 50 mph it has a auto gear box


Most likely nothing mechanically wrong in the gearbox but check the transmission fluid level and top up if low. Also if low, check for site of leak to remedy it. Judder says to me 'imbalance' or an under damped spring. Does the judder emanate from one end (transmission) or one side (wheel) predominantly. Has the judder manifested itself just on its own or is it after having had some work done to the car.
Check wheels for balance - could be a balance weight has been lost, at the same time check the action of the shock absorbers. Check the rear engine/gearbox mount for integrity; its towards the rear of the gearbox and sits on a transmission tunnel cross-member . Now check the front prop to gearbox doughnut coupling, then the central bearing and finally the rear prop to differential doughnut coupling; all should be sound. Signs of splitting of the rubber around the bolt mounts in the doughnuts or a lot of lateral play in the central bearing are indicators for renewal.

Rover Gearbox stuck


if this is an auto tranny, you may want to make sure this is on driv. possible causes of this is the transmission solenoid or the gear selector as it is stuck on reverse. best if you will have it checked by a professional as the location of the parts mentioned is hard to reach without specific tools.
