    I have a 1996 Range rover 4.0 that is having the same problem. I went to AutoZone and was able to get a single ingnition coil for about 80.00 dollars. After changing the coil the truck ran smooth and the Check Engine light went off for about a week. After getting an oil change at Jiffy Lube, the next day the car started to sound loud and drive rough. Two days later the ignition coil for 4-7 burnt out and had the infamous burnt plastic bubble at the top. I change that coil and spark plug wires last night. I hate to report that this morning after driving for about 7 miles the newly replaced coil burnt out.



    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this time consuming and costly problem?

Make sure you disconect the battery or the computer still reads that the circuit is open and will fry a perfectly good coil. I had the same issue and had to do a second time. Disconected the battery and now no problems.

Range rover p38 problems


Go under the vehicle and check for broken exhaust pipe clamps or the pipe or muffler hitting on the undercarriage, check with the system heated up as it will expand up to 1 inch. Also you may need suspension bushings, they are pretty much done at about 100,000 mile mark.

Damaged cooler


Hi, that radiator is the cooler for Automatic transmission! Replacement pattern part is available and are not all that expensive. Your only concern is how much of the auto box oil leaked, if any, and if that has caused damage to the box. When a pipe from the box to the cooler went on mine it wouldn't change into top, and when the pipe was repaired everything was OK. That was 4,000 miles ago!
