Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill

the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

1998 range rover p38 2.5 dse auto engine stalls

Sounds like something is overheating then and possibly a sensor. Not familiar with Rovers but might be a problem with the CAS and/or CPS which tells the ECU the motor is running and when to fire. Also maybe the IAC is bad and when you go from throttle to idle it can't control it and allows it to die.

How do I re boot my range rover suspension. The mechanics lifted the vehicle on a hoist to do some maintenance and when they set it down they could not get it to lift. The vehicle remains flat with the...

hi, this is due to a couple of things. 1 is this a p36 or p38.
things like the door sensors will prevent this from lifting, its to stop it crushing your leg when foot is out.
more than likely there are 2 hieght correctors.
depends on the model. i see these where leg pops out, i get them in where a air bag has popped off, loosing all your air.
when its a p38 and lifted, if u dont push the button on the dash the computer gets confused and wont let it lift, this then needs a reset. i have lifted a lot of range rovers and the p38 is the worst, i use a 2 post lift, u got to push button on dash, this tells it its getting jacked up or lifted. i have forgot to push it a couple of times, a air bag drops off, u need tough thumbs to push it on.
listen to see if the compressor is running when running.
you must open bonnet start engine then shut door making sure all doors are shut, there is a box think it says eas (black box) you can take the cover to see it pumping, u will hear it.
if not you and none of this whats mentioned is at fault u have to have it 1 plugged in or 2 reset. hope this helps u. 1 more suggestion, im not sure about a p36, is the button on the dash on, orange light on, this locks the suspension for lifting, when down wont go up.
get back to me how u got on, i will have another think. im sure the sensor on axle.
