RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1990 Land Rover Range Rover based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
An oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal. Our technicians tell us a revised seal is available which should correct this concern.
A rough or unstable idle may be noted due to an intake manifold vacuum leak. Our technicians tell us a revised intake manifold gasket, along with manifold bolt flat washers which will better distribute the clamping force are available to correct this concern.
An oil leak may develop from the oil pan area. This may be caused by improper sealing of the oil pan "through" bolts. Our technicians tell use that revised "patch" bolts and sealing procedures are available to correct these leaks.
A driveline vibration may be noted, mostly at idle. Our technicians tell us a revised right side engine mount is available which should help with this concern.
An oil leak at the front of the engine may be a result if internal cracks in the timing cover. These cracks are caused by over torquing the oil cooler pipes. If leaks are noted at the cooler pipe fittings, the fittings/pipes should be removed, cleaned, and reinstalled to the correct torque. Our technicians tell us if the leaks persist the timing cover is most likely cracked internally and should be replaced.
