Question about Land Rover Range Rover

1 Answer

Squealing noise when accelerating for 4-8 seconds once level speed reached and again when under pressure, no loss of power or over heating. sounds like air escaping at pressure or metal rubbing together. Belt seems fine and the air suspension will lower slightly over night but pick straight back up the next morning. It is 2001 4.6 v8 p38 range rover with 116.000 miles on. Please help, it's doing my head in now!!! Regards Dave

Try spraying some "anti-squeal" (in an aerosol from any parts supply shop) onto the serpentine belt. If the noise stops you have identified the source. Also lube the spring-loaded device that tensions the belt.

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...

SOURCE: 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.

Noise in engine compartment - chirping, then loud squeal


try having the radiator cap checked for performance. It is not in the engine as any change in rpms would cause a corresponding change in frequency and volume of the noise. However if there is a problem in the cooling system ( leaking head gasket etc) then as the pressure builds up and escapes from under the radiator cap it will give the same affect as a bad tap washer in the household plumbing. Turn it on slightly and the water squeals as it comes out ( tap washer vibrating from pressure fluctuations. I would suggest that a coolant pressure test and a compression test may be in order to eliminate what I have suggested.

Sounds as if you may have a vacuum leak. Use a length of hose with one end in your ear and the other move around under hood to help locate the sound. BE CAREFUL TO AVOID SPINNING FAN AND OTHER OBJECTS. I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS PROCEDURE.

Power loss + squeal @ 4500~ rpm


Could be the cat, They can make some pretty strange noises...Disconnect it and take it for a short ride and see if rpm's are fine (with it removed you probably won't be able to hear the noise though)

Loud squealing sound in my engine


Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.

Power loss at 80mph


Fuel problem or the ECM and or chip has a 80mph limiter. Or your really winding out the engine, in which case, by the time you read this it will be too late.
