1996 Range Rover SE 4.0 .my range rover sat for a few months, everything worked just fine when I parked it. I replaced the fuse/relay box under the hood, when I started it and put it in gear it went into...

This is probably a failed U-Joint or universal joint on your driveline. Probably the forward drive shaft (or propeller shaft as the Brits say) at the transfer case. This U-joint failure is not uncommon in the P-38 and usually occurs at 110,000+ miles or there abouts. The long term parking just contributed to the loss or drying of the lubricant causing a seizure and snapping of the u-joint. Not a huge job for the do-it-yourselfer with some level of competency but its a greasy one. Happy to help more if you would like to post additional questions. Good luck.

I have 2003 envoy. when i put it into drive(D) it acts like i'm in nuetral or park when touch the gas pedal. anyone have any ideas?

(Not a mechanic) First thing to check is the transmission fluid level. If excessivly low it may not move. (Usually check trans fluid with transmission dip stick, while engine is idling and warmed up) Consult owners manual to verify procedure. If your fluid levels are normal or close to normal, you should call a transmission shop unless you are or know a good mechanic.

I have a 2003 range rover the air suspension inactive came on

it could be from many reasons...sometimes even the ABS system will cause this fault or even the Steering position Sensor. if it comes and goes then inspect your height sensors as the early version of the height sensors are getting weak and like melting so it gives wrong reading which cause the fault...offer more info. and you'll get your solution

The car wont shift out of park however the mechanic was able to trigger a switch to get it to work and shift. He said it is the nuetral safety switch, is this the same as the range sensor on ford escapes?...

The range sensor will not cause the shifter to not come out of park. Check to see if your brake lamps work. There is a solenoid that is energized when the brakes are applied to allow the shifter to move from park. I would check fuses and the braek switch first before replacing anything. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Squiky noise like a burning bearing in the front

I'd like you to check the brakes.

Sounds like the brake linings are getting thin, on the brake pads.
There is a metal tab that comes off of each pad, and usually has a thick plastic tip. This metal tab touches the rotors, once the lining is worn down. It's a type of warning device, telling you to change the pads.

One does not want to neglect this, as the metal tab's plastic will wear off, allowing the metal tab itself to touch the rotor. The metal tab will start 'eating' into the rotor, causing damage.

It will make score marks, that can turn into deep gouges.
Sometimes the rotor can be turned, (Faced off with a brake lathe), and the rotor will still be serviceable.
(Rotors have a Minimum thickness. If it is thinner than this thickness, it Must be replaced)

Wait too long,and you'll be replacing the rotors. $$$$ for a Land Rover!
