bearings don't rattle --they knock and the knock gets louder with rpm
it has a chain drive for the cam shaft and rattles are associated with a worn chain as there is no slack adjuster
The v8 engine (originally a 4 litre ) was only stroke by 10 mm to give it extra power
there was never any problem with the block from cracking as that engine was used in the Leyland truck and p38 car as well as range rover cars and off road vehicles
it's big draw card was the power to weight ratio being an aluminium cast block it was suited to fast car applications

To change from low to high or vice verse, the transmission should be in neutral - that's what the Message Centre is telling you to do. It's also recommended you do this while stopped.

Corrosion to sensor connectors causes bad behavior. Most likely temperature sensor for engine block sensor to ECU computer has corrosion. Clean connectors and spades to bright metal. Should be two lines/ connectors. Many other sensors could have a similar effect, or soon will have.

Probably a rusted starter solenoid - get a hammer and give the solenoid (cylinder attached to the starter motor) a few good thumps. If that fixed it, get the unit replaced because it will happen again.

If this trick does not work, check the wiring for loose or rusted earth - another common fault

Undo the junction before the injectors and turn on the ignition to see if fuel is pumping. Most likely it is not but I doubt there is a broken pipe - more likely a broken power wire

The pump is in the top of the tank. Remove the carpet and cover plate to get to it. Turn on the ignition and use a multimeter to check if there is power to the connectors. The sensor wire will only show about 5 volts but the power wire should show 12 volts or more.

If no power, trace the wire under the vehicle to find the break and re-join it - preferably with solder and shrink but spade terminals and shrink will do. Alternatively run a new wire from the pump to a switched wire under the dash but this is a lot more work

there is a switch that is located somwhere on your bonnet, this switch is faulty, loose, or out of adjustment. might look like this- 23015757-awhy2tj3hoeu5futbuxdq4rw-3-0.png

Get the new battery ready to install. You don't want more than a few seconds with the power off or you will have get all kinds of errors

Sound like the switch pack but could also be a computer fault. Not something you can fix yourself. Find a specialist shop - not a dealer to check it out

1996 Land Rover... | Answered on Sep 30, 2014

I assume you have checked the battery? If less than 12.4 volts that is probably the cause of the problem. If it is OK, get under the vehicle and thump the starter solenoid (the cylinder attached to the starter itself) with a hammer to loosen any internal rust. Also check the earth connections - finally jump the connections on the solenoid with a BIG screwdriver - but keep your hand well clear of the metal parts unless you want a nasty shock. If all this fails, you probably need a new starter motor

Yes the Land Rover 4.0L Motor is a V6 (6 Cylinder)

I have the same problem sometimes
1 Check the condition of your battery, if old, it will not give full power required to communicate with the security system.
2 If you don't have the EKA of your RR, try this next time you get caught, put key in the drivers door look, press unlock button on key fob and at the same time turn to unlock, if all locks unlock then the engine should not be immobilized - Good luck

You need the help of a local repair shop

Take it to a different one & leave it there,
until ALL issues are resolved

Would appear your too trusting & never had the shop
prove anything was resolved, before paying & leaving
with the vehicle

You have to start taking control of the situations, when
dealing with any merchant

No one can guess at vehicle problems
without a car to check out & test

The tail lights sound like a fuse. The interior fuse box iss under the passenger seat. Access thru the pop out cover on the seat base surround.
If you have a dead battery your gear selector will not disengage from park.

Hope this helps a bit. Feel free to repost with more info and ill do my best to follow up.
