Check the oil level and the type of oil in the gear box. If too much oil -that will make it hot. If too little oil -that will make it hot. IF the oil is not right viscosity -that will make it hot. get a infrared thermometer and read the gear box temperature to get an idea of the oil temperature as what feels hot on the stick may be operating temperature of the oil

SOURCE: land rover discovery 1994 gear selection

Hi there!

I'm a Land Rover owner myself - old school Series models.

This sounds like major gearbox trouble.

As the selector shafts are different for gears #2 and #4, I may be inclined to think there is an external problem around the base of the gearlever.

Probably cheaper to have a look here first.

If you've been offroading, it's possible you've managed to get a stone in there.

With the covers off the transmission, if there is no fault externally that you can see, then the gearbox may have to be stripped to find the obstruction.

You can always join one of the Landrover forums to assist on this and other matters.

Hope this helps you. If it does, please rate as Fixya! Thanks.

SOURCE: Have a 2004 range rover with p122b code output speed sensor

This might sound odd, but it could be the gearbox output shaft bearing. If the transmission sounds noisier than it did, this could be the issue. Only way to check is to take off the transfer box. Not a major job, but takes a while. Some good fault code readers will read transmission codes, and allow you to see in real time what the sensor is doing - if the sensor suddenly loses signal, then it is very likely to be the a bearing (output shaft bearing most likely) that is at fault, causing the sensor ring to move too far from the sensor. Best guess, but could be other things, so don't go taking that transfer box off without getting a road test with a good fault code reader on it - or find someone with a portable oscilloscope and put that across the sensor - you should be able to see nice square wave pulses - if they get bigger and smaller (variable amplitude), that's your problem. If not, the fault lies elsewhere.

SOURCE: how do i change drive belt on p38 range rover

My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.
I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

Not sure if this what you need for the "P38" but it is for the 1996 Range Rover.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


Click on the following Link. It has the several Serpentine Belt Diagrams, one of which matches your specific vehicle with your particular options (AC, Power Steering etc..).

Regarding HOW:
Standard Rule to Removal the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Rotate/Move the Tensioner away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys
.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.

b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
Let me know if this helped...

I was driving my97 rangerover and came to a stop light and upon leaving thestop it wouldnt move dash computer says transfer case in neuteral i tried to put it in park and it made a sound as if it was not...


Hello Joey... Have you ever put your Rover into Low range? You might have accidentally bumped the shifter to the right and it started to select Low range, but it is in Neutral because the Low shift was interrupted. To correct this, with the engine off, but with the key on, select Neutral first. Then start selecting Low by putting pressure on the shifter towards the right(to engage low, the second set of gear/numbers). Keep pressure on the shifter until the dash shows a Low range light and is no longer beeping...now you are in Low Range. Next try to select High range by putting slight leftward pressure on the shifter. Keep pressure on it toward the left until it quits beeping and no longer has any gearbox, neutral, or low range lights (20-30 secs Max each way/Range, etc.) Then select park and try restarting the engine, if you hear any funky/grinding sounds shut it down and repeat above process. It should work on the first try, however, You may Try it a few times before giving up on it if you never use low range. The Low range shift solenoid is probably shot if you cannot get it back into High Range, etc. Good Luck, Brian

Jeep wont go drive forward or reverse


Either the clutch or torque converter, most likely the torque converter, also check the gearbox fluid level and slave cylinder.

Constant pulsing lights and a mesage that says check manual


Check the gearbox oil level with the engine running at the filler plug on the gearbox rhs.Fluid should just drip out when it's warm(not hot)refill if nothing comes out.If this is fine , have someone read fault codes on the gearbox , the temp. sensor could be faulty.
